Hi I’m Sonja
I love my work and helping support people on their journey to health. I envisage more people turning to natural health in the future as humanity evolves and recognises the importance of the vital force and fully embraces the depth of beauty and intelligence of Gaia, our planet Earth. I see a future where people appreciate the wholeness of everything, recognise and embrace natural foods and naturopathic philosophy as well as our connection to the earth, the seas and air and other beings on our planet, the lunar cycles and our planetary influences which are all part of our inter-connectedness and consciousness.
From becoming ill with multiple allergies and chronic fatigue in the late 1980’s I undertook several naturopathic detoxifying programmes to help restore my health before embarking on training in naturopathy, nutritional medicine and dietary therapy with Dr Lawrence Plaskett qualifying in 1994. Initially practising in London, I later moved to West Yorkshire and began practising here in 2001. I graduated in iridology in 2000 and I fully embraced this science to support my understanding of the health picture of each individual. I have continued to expand my knowledge by studying various therapies including homotoxicology, mesotherapy, Far Infra-red sauna and additional naturopathic techniques, and metapathia. I have always kept abreast of new information by attending lectures and seminars in London and abroad, and more commonly recently, online webinars.
In the 1980’s I undertook cookery classes in traditional Japanese cooking and macrobiotics food preparation. I have also travelled extensively and experienced varied diets and cooking styles. In the past I worked both cooking and gardening at a Rudolf Steiner organic, biodynamic kibbutz.
