Homeopathy with Janine Gawn
I am originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Auckland has been my home for the last 22 years.
I have always had a passion for health inspired by a deep connection to my herbalist grandmother.
I trained and worked as an engineering draftsperson for 15 years which enabled me to work overseas and indulge my love of travel and the outdoors.
While in the UK in the 90’s I saw a homeopath for hay fever and my interest in homeopathy began.
Later, after addressing long-term menstrual problems with homeopathy, I decided to train as a classical homeopath. This career change combined beautifully with becoming a mother and being able to work around my two children.
As a homeopath, I listen to your symptoms and story and address your health concerns with a carefully chosen homeopathic remedy.
With homeopathy I look at the root cause of ill health and enable you to live more fully, creatively and with resilience.
I work in all areas of health with babies to seniors and especially skin conditions, digestive health and mental health
