Welcome to Kent Homeopathy, a charitable clinic offering free healthcare to those who need it. The clinic is funded by charity Homeopathy UK and run by experienced NHS nurse and homeopath Wendy Scrase RSHom MFHom (Nurse). Wendy trained as a homeopath in the 1990’s after seeing a friend successfully treated for a severe case of mastitis.

Homeopathy is a natural and effective form of complementary [...]

Hi, my name’s Jonathon, a Therapeutic Counsellor based in East Kent. My clients reflect society, from 18 plus through to those in their late 70’s and come from diverse social backgrounds, ethnicities and sexuality. We predominantly meet for face-to-face counselling or in some circumstances clients choose therapy via Skype, FaceTime, or telephone. For almost two years my work has been with clients at MIND, the UK’s number one mental health charity. In addition, clients are now welcomed at my own private practice. Fifty minute sessions are usually open-ended (as opposed to specific in number) and clients are given the same [...]

For those who are in recovery, life can seem like an endless slog of therapy and support. If you are struggling with, or recovering from, an addiction, mental health problem, or eating disorder then life coaching may be able to help you see other life options that will support your recovery and help you move forward in a positive way. Effective coaching may help you regain the confidence to work out what you want from life and how to get there. When we feel empowered, we focus on what we can do, rather than what we can’t. It is in [...]
A study by Dr Sally Robinson from Christchurch University in Canterbury found that 22.9% of four to five year olds were overweight or obese, and in the report claims in the last 25 years alone the number of people shown to be overweight or obese has tripled. I have friends who have been horrified by schools wanting to weigh their children at school and label them as overweight (and believe me they don’t look it), who have felt patronised by the healthy eating guides they have been given. Don’t get me wrong – I watched Jamie Oliver’s battle to improve [...]
Will you make me cluck like a chicken? Am I out of control? Will I tell you my secrets? Can I get stuck in hypnosis? These are the types of questions I get asked by new clients and it is often the reason that prevents people from seeking help with a hypnotherapist. These myths (they are not true by the way :) ) are often the result of media sensationalism. To promote hypnosis in this way makes good tv watching, even childrens’ cartoons portray hypnosis as a way to control others in a ‘zombie’ type state (often with spinning eyes!). [...]
