Helen Johnson,

Director

Helen began career in Holistic Medicine in 1990 qualifying as a Naturopath and Osteopath and then continued training as a Homeopath and a Cranial-Sacral therapist.

She was then lucky enough to study at the Guild of Homeopaths as a post-graduate with Martin Miles, Janice Micallef and Colin Griffith, learning the importance of the endocrine system, the chakras and principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, gaining knowledge of many indispensable new remedies which deal with these principles as well as modern day challenges such as radiation/chemical toxicity.

She then ran seminars and a clinic with Dr Ramakrishnan from India for 5 years experiencing the power of treating deep pathology with homeopathic medicines.

For 15 years, she has run retreats in the magical island called Gozo helping people to release deep trauma and has witnessed phenomenal healing through this.

Having worked tirelessly and intensely in practise for nearly 30 years she has tremendous clinical experience and has taught at several schools of Homeopathy.

She then created the Alchemical Healing Arts Academy (AHAA) teaching an integrated approach to health from which developed she the River School.

Helen grew up with a very spiritual approach to life and has a very strong understanding of all aspects of the human condition – psychological, physical, mental and spiritual.

Hilary Fairclough,

Assistant Director

I was inspired to train in homeopathy when, as a trained nurse 30 years ago, specialising in community nursing, palliative cancer care, nurse lecturing and bereavement counselling.

I knew that there had to be a system of medicine which promoted well-being, and had healing at its heart. I found this medicine in Homeopathy – nearly 25 years later I am still inspired by its brilliant healing potential.

In 2002 I had a life-changing experience in Botswana and witnessed the devastation caused to peoples’ lives by the HIV and AIDS epidemic there, so was moved to set up mobile homeopathic clinics which took off in a big way – word spread, people queued daily to be seen and the reported results of treatment were astounding. I went on to establish and direct the Maun Homeopathy Project, a registered charity, to fund and manage the service.

In total I recruited over 40 international homeopaths to run the clinics and together we treated thousands of people.  In Botswana, I developed a system of homeopathic prescribing called ‘The Triad Method’ for people living with complex health conditions – either chronic physical illness or deep emotional trauma. In 2015 I had a book, The Triad Method: treating complex cases from grassroots to clinic, published by the Winter Press.

Being involved in running the River School of Homeopathy is an exciting new opportunity for me. I have been a regular teacher of homeopathic students and practitioners, but this school offers something more – an integrated, holistic and person-centred approach which will enable the next generation of homeopaths to be sensitive, confident, grounded and inspired practitioners.

Sian Moss

Core Teacher

I have been a homeopath since 2009, having qualified with a BSc and Licentiate from the Centre of Homeopathic Education in London. Previously I had gained a first-class degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics and worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry and academia for 15 years, researching the mechanisms involved in chronic pain conditions.

Recently I relocated to South Cambridgeshire where my practice is now based. I am particularly interested in supporting those with conditions which are conventionally difficult to treat, or in which prescribed medication causes unpleasant side effects. Rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, multiple allergies and stress are some of the conditions people seek help with in my practice, my aim is to improve quality of life.

Between 2014 and 2017 a series of systematic reviews of Individualized homeopathic treatment and single remedy therapy for named conditions were published. I was part of the team who worked on these assessing the quality of selected trials. I am pleased to say that this has led to a greater awareness of the importance of method quality in trials of homeopathy and the remedies involved.

Currently I am Module Leader for two modules at CHE, Research Methods and Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. I started lecturing in 2012 since when I have taught in London and New York. In addition, I deliver online webinars to reach students interested in developing their knowledge to a deeper level.

Voluntary work is important to me, currently I practice for an ‘on-line’ clinic treating Syrian child refugees who have crossed the border to Turkey so they can carry on with their education. Due to their experiences the children suffer with many complex issues, both emotional and physical, the last year has seen successful treatment resulting in happier children and relieved parents. The clinic relies on volunteers and we work with a limited journal published by the Society of Homeopaths.

I am dedicated to developing education in holistic health and excited to be part of a new school with a unique vision.
