Five Valleys Homeopathy offers a specialist homeopathic service to support people with mental health difficulties. The service is based in Stroud Gloucestershire and is run by Andy Brachi who is a registered mental health nurse (RMN) and a qualified homeopath. Charges for the service are based on ability to pay and are intended to make it accessible to most people. The aim of the service is to demonstrate homeopathy as a useful therapeutic intervention for those experiencing mental health difficulties.
Homeopathy itself is an alternative system of medicine that uses “remedies” to help a wide range of problems, both physical and emotional. Like other alternative therapies, it endeavours to treat people and their difficulties as a whole and not as a collection of separate “parts”. There is more discussion about homeopathy under “further information”.
“Mental health” is here meant in its broadest sense, and includes difficulties with emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety and elation; with lack of confidence and low self-esteem; with challenging behaviours, restlessness and concentration; with difficult inner experiences and issues with sleep or appetite. Also included are physical complaints that may have an emotional component such as some menstrual difficulties, skin problems, excessive fatigue, headaches, gastrointestinal and sexual difficulties, post-natal difficulties and so on.
