Dr Moira Houston MB ChB, MFHom
Doctor of Medicine and Registered Homeopath
I was born in Scotland and grew up in Nairobi, Kenya. After training as a doctor at Bristol Medical School and then in General Practice in London I became curious about other systems of healing to help make sense of the wide range of individual symptoms which people discussed in their consultations. Homeopathy suited my way of working and linked the body, mind and emotions to the many factorsunderstood to be involved in health,
I have studied at the medical Faculty of Homeopathy in London and with many other teachers, whilst working for many years at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and in both General and Private Practice. I am a trained craniosacral therapist
