I grew up with homeopathy all around me; I have not been vaccinated, I have had the measles (I was sent to a measles party!), mumps and chicken pox – all were treated homeopathically. I suffered from eczema when I was young; it too was treated with homeopathy and it has never came back. I can count the times I have been to the doctors on one hand; I am rarely sick.

Born in 1971 and brought up by a hippy turned homeopath (Misha Norland FSHom), lets just say I had an healthy and alternative childhood. In a bid to
escape the rainbow clothes I made a break for London and the design industry.

I worked for many of London’s leading agencies doing design, branding and strategy consultancies for ten years. I enjoyed the work, I had a lot of fun, I got out of holey clothing, but ultimately my past was catching up with me and bigger ideas were brewing.

I had dreams that involved helping people not businesses. I wanted to enrich lives not wallets. I wanted to give something back at a more meaningful level.

So I went full circle and back to my dad and enrolled on his homeopathy course at the School of Homeopathy. I soon learnt that many of the concepts in business and branding are not so dissimilar to Homeopathy – both are about the well-being of an organism, both are about the discovery of a central state or idea and the healthy expression of that state.

I trained at The School of Homeopathy, which my father founded in 1981, it is the longest running School in the UK and we have students in over 80 countries – where else was there!

I have to say my father don’t I! And that would be true, as a child Misha and I had many inspiring, deep and philosophical discussions. But to then train formally at the School of Homeopathy and be taught by him was a joy and something I will always remember. I love homeopathic philosophy and Misha is one of the world’s best teachers when it comes to that!

I would like to see multi-disciplinary clinics funded by governments, in the UK these would be National Health Service (NHS) clinics, where patients are given a choice of healthcare solutions to meet their individual health needs. Homeopathy would be one of those choices. This would open it up and give more people greater choice.
