The Beacon - September 2017

Dear Friends

This is a rather late newsletter, as I’ve been busy over the winter doing extra shifts for my colleagues, while they’ve been having exciting holidays! I will get some time away at Steam Punk the Thames in November, and at Takaka in the New Year.

Now I have more time to see people at The Light House, and I will be contacting people on the waiting list, for them to come in for homeopathic treatment.

The Beacon - June 2017

Dear Friends

This newsletter is an update about the services I offer.

General Practice

I am still seeing patients in General Practice, phone 0800 WISBELL (0800 947 235).

If you would like homeopathic treatment from there, you can let me know at your consultation, and I can arrange to post you out a homeopathic remedy, or leave one in the Drop Box outside The Light House.

I am working there three days a week, either morning or afternoon, so you should be able to get an appointment to see me.

I have heard from some patients that they have been told I was retiring, and that another doctor was taking over my cases.

This is Not So, and you do not have to see another doctor, if you are ringing for an appointment with me.

If you have problems getting an appointment to see me, or if you are told that I am fully booked, please email me, and I will make a time to see you.

Similarly, if you are from out of town, you can email me, so that you can get an appointment when you are in Christchurch.

Since I have been working in General Practice I have been less flexible with appointments and messages, but you can still contact me directly if you wish.

On the other hand, if you email me with a clinical message or a prescription request, I will usually forward the email to the Practice, and action it there.

Please don’t be afraid to ask.

The Beacon - March 2017


I have made some changes to the services at The Light House, so that I can see more people here.

If you wish to come and see me for homeopathic treatment, I suggest you see me at the clinic at The Light House, although I prefer to call it a service rather than a clinic.

I have more time for you here, and for much the same price, as there are less overheads.

I will still ask you to fill in the “New Patient Questionnaire”, so that I can know more about your health and your background. I can arrange full homeopathic treatment here, and sometimes also take time after the session to finish choosing your remedy.

The Homeobotanical system

The Homeobotanical system comprises 26 herbal blends covering a wide range of conditions treated by natural health practitioners. The concentrated blends and then dilutes and potentised homeopathically to enhance their medicinal power. All remedies are mutually compatible and can be mixed in an infinite variety of ways to restore the health of a patient.

Homeobotanical remedies are classical blends of herbal extracts and tinctures which have been prepared to cover all the usual health conditions met with in a natural health clinic.

These formulations are then potentised in the homeopathic manner to release a healing energy which seems quite unique.

Dear Friends

This is to let you know, that as I’ve just come back from two holidays, I will be working through the Christmas break this year, with just the Stat Days off.

All the services that I mentioned in the November Beacon are still up and running.

In addition, my new Bed and Breakfast is now operating

You can book through airbnb

Please follow the Facebook page for Open Days at The Light House.

And do look at the Christchurch Flower Essences page, as there is a lot more information up there now, and more YouTube clips.

I have some hazy plans to have a stall at various Markets and Festivals. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more information.

I can really recommend the Drum Festival at Little River 25/26 February 2017

Chris BerryThe guest tutor again this year is Chris Berry, a Grammy Award winner from California, who has spent 10 years in Africa, and now teaches African music worldwide, and from his retreat venue in Hawaii.
(I should have also told you about a Kirtan concert by Dave Stringer last Friday, also a Gramy nominee.)

I look forward to seeing you.

The Beacon - November 2016

This is to keep you up to date with events at The Light House.

Well, actually, it is still just a time of consolidation, and the services are running as usual.

This is the building at the back of my home, which I use as a base for the (non-medical) Homeopathy and Flower Essence service, the healing sessions and the meditation classes.
I will be having Open Days, where people can come in and sit quietly, or listen to music. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for when they are on, and I expect them to become a regular feature.
There is full information on the webpage.
