Catherine Wilson - Homeopath

BSc (Hons) Hom LCHE

I studied at the Centre for Homeopathic Education at Middlesex University in London, graduating with a BSc (Hons) in 2012. Homeopathy is amazing in the way it can treat physical, mental, and emotional issues with no side effects. It can be used alongside conventional medicine to help alleviate the symptoms of the illness and the side effects of the medication. I have specific interests in “Women’s problems”, behavioural issues in children and teenagers and chronic illnesses such as MS and ME. I practice at the Bampton Clinic and in Witney where I live with my husband and our three sons ranging in age from 12 to 24.
