 Catherine Melbourne


Catherine Melbourne DSH RSHom
Graduated: 2012
Trained: School of Homeopathy
Registered: Society of Homeopaths

Catherine grew up in a family that was interested in health and nutrition and open to alternative therapies, discovering homeopathy for herself when she developed a severe form of psoriasis on her hands. After six unsuccessful years searching for relief through both conventional and alternative medicine she finally consulted a homeopath at the suggestion of a friend. Sceptical at first, she was amazed when her psoriasis completely cleared up within two months of treatment. She has never doubted homeopathy’s capabilities since and over the years has taken her children to the same homeopath who treated her for help with all their ailments. Homeopathy has also seen many of Catherine’s close friends and family through a wide range of life events and health problems including depression, divorce, hormone imbalances, broken bones and trigeminal neuralgia.

Once her children had grown up Catherine felt the need to pursue her great interest in homeopathy into the classroom and studied at the School of Homeopathy for four years. She has wide experience of working with special needs children from a previous career in education and an interest in all aspects of family health, particularly infertility, pregnancy and the elderly.

Just reflecting like this can be very helpful to both you and Julian. Giving attention to your basic experience, to your deeper sensations as well as your symptoms, thoughts and feelings, can in itself be healing.

Luke Norland Homeopath

Luke Norland DSH RSHom BMus
Graduated: 2018

Trained: The School of Homeopathy
Registered: The Society of Homeopaths

Luke grew up sharing his family home with the School of Homeopathy and has been immersed in the homeopathic way of life from day one. Having first studied classical music in London, his career path eventually brought him back to his roots in the healing arts. He is particularly interested in the active-listening role of the homeopath, providing a space for people to tell their truth and explore themselves free from any prejudice.

Since completing his diploma in holistic massage in 2010, Luke went on to train in sports & thai massage and has been treating patients for a wide variety of health conditions for almost 10 years. You will find that Luke is a good listener, has a calm presence and knows how to ask questions that give you the space to open up and talk about yourself. This process in itself begins the journey of self-discovery that is intrinsic to healing. Consultations with Luke will give you an opportunity to talk about your illness so that a better understanding of what causes your problem is reached. Then he takes the time to understand your case before prescribing a remedy that is unique to you.

Your first appointment will usually last up to 90 minutes, providing ample time to explore your chief complaint, your health in general and the circumstances that have led you here. At the end of the consultation, Luke will discuss your plan going forward and will outline how many sessions you might need. A well-matched homeopathic remedy can not only alleviate your symptoms, but also act as a catalyst for a positive change in your outlook, making it easier to adapt to change.

Luke’s first training was as a classical musician; playing the French Horn since the age of 10. Music has many parallels with the healing arts: most notably the sensitivity and awareness to ‘tune in’, the ability to learn and perfect techniques, recognise patterns and to maintain professional performance standards. His experience working as a Chef has given him an enthusiasm for understanding nutrition and the importance of digestion in maintaining health whilst his work as a massage therapist gives him an excellent grounding in all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints. Luke is insured with Balens and registered with the Society of Homeopaths which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Adults - First appointment £75 Follow ups £45

Children - First appointment £60 Follow ups £40

Margaret has a lifelong interest and passion for healing, spirituality, caring for the earth and the food that we grow and eat.  She became strongly connected to natural healing when she had children in the 1990s, and began studying and using herbal medicine for the family, growing her own herbs for use as well.

Margaret graduated from the Contemporary College of Homeopathy in 2002 and has been in practice in Stroud ever since. She enjoys helping families improve their health and vitality and has a lot of experience treating menopausal women, as well as running the Children’s Clinic at the School of Homeopathy clinic.
