My name is Esther Ritmeester.
I am a Qualified and HINT Registered Classical Homeopath in New Zealand. I work with clients locally and have a borderless practice reaching clients all over the globe via tele-consultation. While my clinic offers consults to a wide range of clients for a broad variety of health situations I have special interests in Grief and Depression, Restless leg syndrome and an affinity with Senior health and Palliative care.
My homeopathic Journey
My passion for Homeopathy began with an experience I had as a young first time mum. I had a colicky baby and endless exhausting sleepless nights. A friend suggested I give her a homeopathic remedy to help and she slept through after only one dose of that! It seemed like a miracle to me. I promptly purchased a Homeopathic beginner’s remedy kit and self help guide and taught myself to support my family (and our farm animals and pets) in many acute and everyday situations. From a background of nursing in the Netherlands, then Emigration to NZ, full time parenting and farming I came to formally study Homeopathy for 4 years at the former BOP College of Homeopathy from which I qualified with honours in 2012. I have enjoyed practicing from our rural home since then.
As a Practitioner…
I am a down to earth and practical person with the ability to relate comfortably to a wide variety of situations and people. I find this is an important skill in successful Homeopathic prescribing. While I am classically trained, I am committed to ongoing professional development and will draw from new found knowledge and other homeopathic methodologies should a case call for it. I bring to my practice compassion and a sincere desire to make a difference in someone’s life. I am passionate about helping my clients learn about their ability to heal naturally and gently. I believe there can be improvement in any situation and we are never truly without options.
