Dr Monika Clark-Grill MD, PhD, Consultant Bio-ethicist
I graduated in medicine from the University of Heidelberg/Germany where as a student I had become interested in homeopathy due to a personal health experience. During my early professional years I completed postgraduate diploma courses in homeopathy and acupuncture in Vienna.
After working for 15 years in my own general medical and homeopathic practice here in Nelson I embarked on further study at the University of Otago’s Bioethics Centre. In 2004 I completed my PhD about the ethical significance of complementary and alternative medicines. Following this I became a senior lecturer teaching students at the Dunedin Medical School, and convening postgraduate courses on ethics and complementary medicine for GPs. My aim was to bring a better understanding of nonconventional healing approaches to the medical profession.
My presentation will look into the various challenges homeopaths are facing in these stormy times. I will draw from interviews with focus groups of local homeopaths and from international literature to explore what strategies can be used individually and as a profession to weather these storms successfully.
Tim Couzens MRCVS
Hello from the UK, my name is Tim Couzens and I run the Holistic Veterinary Medicine Centre, a natural medicine-based practice based near Brighton in the South East of England.
I was born in Croydon on the outskirts of London but spent most of my childhood in Sussex. I studied veterinary medicine at the Royal Veterinary College in London, qualifying in 1980 encountering homeopathy for the first time while working as an aspiring orthopaedic vet in West London.
With the need to gain more knowledge and to broaden my skills, the following few years were spent in a large mixed practice in the New Forest before moving nearer to my parent’s home in Sussex to work in a small animal practice again where I discovered a secret supply of homeopathic remedies. With veterinary courses just starting at the Royal Homeopathic Hospital in London, I was keen to learn more, gaining my VetMFHom in 1991. The rest as they say is history, establishing the HVMC in 1995 and expanding the range of therapies to include herbal medicine and acupuncture and developing a special interest in treating horses homeopathically.
I have been lucky enough to travel the world lecturing on veterinary homeopathy and to have written a couple of books; Homeopathy for Horses published in 2006 by Kenilworth and Horses and Homeopathy published by Saltire Books in 2011. I am currently writing Homeopathy for Dogs for the German publisher Narayana. I have three grown up children, have been married twice and I’m keen on mountain biking, walking, Indian cookery and photography.
My lecture, How to Recognise Constitutional Remedies in Horses Quickly involves you doing some serious thinking – you will need a pen and paper to hand!
Dr Sandy Dinsdale MB ChB, Dip Obst, FRNZCGP, RC Hom.
Sandy Dinsdale graduated from Otago University in 1988, following her vocation into general practice in 1991. Within just five years her interest in the Law of Similars was sparked when she witnessed extraordinary wound healing with homeopathy and enrolled in the BOP College of Homeopathy (now CNHH). Sandy’s clinical roles in primary health care include family medicine, care of the elderly, integrative medicine and prison medicine.
In her book, Medicine with Meaning, Sandy advocates for a more balanced medical system capable of providing holistic health care. Following 30 years of experience and service in conventional medicine, in 2021 she shifted her full focus to homeopathy. Her goal for the next 30 years is to help restore homeopathy to its rightful place alongside conventional medicine.
Her presentation will examine the causes, maintaining factors, and obstacles to cure of the longstanding mutual distrust between allopathy and homeopathy (dis-ease), along with the curative remedy. Sandy’s enthusiasm for homeopathy is motivated by a lifelong interest in the human condition and her core belief that people share an innate ability to heal.

“We spend such a long time training and learning about homeopathy and not enough time training and learning how to build a business and build a solid client base so that you can do what you love doing and that is (usually) doing more homeopathy!’
Marketing is the link between being a homeopath and doing homeopathy. If you want to ‘do more homeopathy’, see more clients and make homeopathy your career, then this is for you!
Mary will discuss different ways to reach your perfect client, how to grab their attention and introduce them to homeopathy.

Linlee Jordan MHlthScEd BHom RN
Director of The Aurum Project for Homeopathy research and the Harbord Homeopathic Clinic on the northern beaches of Sydney. Linlee is author of Challenging Children: Success with Homeopathy and she is a chapter author in the book Homeopathy & Autism Spectrum Disorder: a guide for practitioners and families.
He eats only white foods: sugar, eggs, coconut and grated bones.
Resolving pre-autistic traits using Homeopathy
After delving into the life of obsessive French composer Erik Satie and his rigid diet, it’s easy to see why he has become the poster child of the Avoidant/ Restrictive Food Intake Disorder diagnosis and more broadly of Aspergers or autism.
Linlee became fascinated by Satie’s white meal preferences. It became the leaping off point to explore colour-based food choices and selective eating, with a special focus on people who hover around the spectrum. A new world of understanding opened up about causations and presentations of some behaviours and the materia medica which they were illustrating.
Foods that are white may be more tolerable for individuals with sensory issues and hypersensitivity. Remedies to explore include Carc, the Lacs, Saccharum and Triticum-vg. Linlee will share cases still in progress and some resolved cases which were once in the mystery basket.
As homeopaths we can view selective eating/picky eating as the tip of the iceberg of underlying problems such as anxiety, depression, sensory processing disorder, autism, and ADHD. Homeopathy has a profound role to play in early childhood to halt progress towards deeper problems.

We live in a time when animals are phenomenally suppressed from the removal of their sex organs in infancy, over vaccination, the overindulgence of worming medication, antibiotics, anti-fungals, poor quality processed food, and quite possibly the worst of all, not having free will to play, run, fight, have sex, or hunt. All the natural inclinations our companion animals have that keep them healthy, fit and happy are suppressed.
Chronic disease and cancer are at epidemic levels with veterinary patients. When it comes to the treatment of animals, we no longer live in the time of homeopathy, when we could give one remedy wait and see.
In this lecture, I will share with you:
- the difference between treating animals and people
- obstacles to cure
- understanding acute and chronic conditions and treatment
- navigating deep seated skin disease and cancer
As homeopaths, the quality of life we can offer to our beautiful animals far outshines any other treatment options out there… we just need to understand.
Dr. Wendy Maddocks (RN, DHlthSci, MA, BA, Pg Dip Nursing, Aromatherapist)
I have been a registered nurse for over 35 years working in many clinical areas, and trained in several complementary therapies including massage, aromatherapy and herbal medicine. I obtained my Doctorate in Health Science in 2008, holding the first clinical doctorate in NZ where CAM was researched in an acute cancer setting. I now work at Canterbury University in the Post Graduate health sciences as an academic and run a small natural products business.
I am actively involved in CAM research, primarily around the use of New Zealand indigenous plants. In my spare time I am writing a book on nursing history and I distil aromatics and dream of my next travel adventure.
Deconstructing barriers to being effective researchers in CAM practices
Research and enquiry is necessary as they build knowledge. However at a practitioner level either reading or doing research may get forgotten in the quest to provide treatments. In this presentation I will look at how practitioners can use and contribute to research around homeopathy, and sow seeds of possibly starting own research journey by introducing the post grad CAM research offering at University of Canterbury.
Jan Marsh M.A.(Hons), Dip.Clin. Psych
Jan Marsh is a retired clinical psychologist with a long time interest in homeopathy. As well as seeing clients with a wide range of mental health and stress-related issues, she has offered supervision to a variety of professionals, including homeopaths, providing an opportunity for reflection on their work and guidance for self-care and sustainability of practice.
Resilience, self-care and care of each other
Jan’s presentation will cover the qualities we need to absorb the stress and hurt of our clients without becoming distressed ourselves, the practices which help us to look after ourselves and how to care for each other in a professional group which does not always enjoy public support.
I have had an interest in homeopathy for the past 20 years which stemmed from personal experience using homeopathy for myself, then the dairy herd and children. My enthusiasm for Homeopathy led me to further my education to gain a greater understanding of this natural medicine.
I was born and raised on a Dairy farm, then left school to work on a Dairy farm, then had the chance of my dream job of Vet nursing, which lasted for 5 years. My passion sits with animals and I now hold a Diploma in Human and Animal Homeopathy and am a Registered Homeopath.
After spending 20 years on farm working with my husband and building up cow’s numbers from 300 to 1200, then back down to 900, there has been a whole heap of Homeopathy used and I am still learning! My farming background is conventional, but for the past 8 years it has been more biological and now we are looking at regenerative agriculture in our farming practices. We have been sharemilking for a Maori Trust the past 15 years and our philosophies align well. Homeopathy has played a huge role in our farming practices. We have downsized again and are now sharemilking 700 cows.
In 2019 I purchased Homeopathic Farm Services Ltd. HFS is all about educating farmers on Homeopathy as well as giving advice to farmers on how to treat animals with Homeopathy. It’s been nice to share some information on Homeopathy to other farmers and give them confidence to try it on their own stock for the greater wellbeing of them. I thoroughly enjoy working with animals, farmers and understanding their farming operations and how Homeopathy can be part of that.
Barbara Stumbles. BVSc, DipHom(Animal Health)
Barbara graduated from Massey University in 1983 and has worked in small animal practice ever since. After taking her young family to the late Bruce Barwell and experiencing the speed with which homeopathy could resolve children’s problems, she commenced study to enable her to offer this modality to her animal patients.
Reality v perception
This presentation will aim to showcase how dependent animal homeopaths often are on the verbal account of the owner. Sometimes this, with our own observations of demeanor, etc, is all that we have to base our case work on. Where the owner is observant and accurate this can be very successful, but sometimes the owner’s story is not so close to the true picture. Various cases will be presented to illustrate how the owner’s narrative can be helpful or misleading.
Dr Jasvir Kaur BHMS (India), RC Hom
The inspiration to become a Homeopath came from her family when she was quite young. She witnessed her mother falling sick and often needing to spend a lot of time in hospital, which was distressing. Coincidentally, her brother had just begun his homeopathic training and with the help of his teachers, he started giving his mother homeopathic remedies which proved beneficial. Since then, Jasvir has witnessed miracles with Homeopathy.
Jasvir’s homeopathic journey started in 2006, joining a Homeopathic University in India. After finishing her training in 2012, she practiced for five years in India before deciding to move to New Zealand in 2017.
Jasvir practised at Natural Healing Raumati under Dr Tralee Sugrue and sits on the NZCH Executive where she is liaison person for Indian Homeopaths. She is about to embark on a new journey after recently moving to Palmerston North where she plans to set up her practice.
Jasvir will be delving into Aurum to shed some light on the remedy’s constitution- it’s psoric, sycotic and syphilitic traits. Stages of development of emotional pathology will also be discussed.
