My name is Esther Ritmeester.
I am a Qualified and NZCH 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. I also work with the team at Homeopathy 24/7 providing a homeopathic after hour acute consultation service worldwide. 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…
My life experiences have made me a down to earth and practical person with the ability to relate comfortably to a wide variety of situations and people which I find an important tool in successful Homeopathic prescribing. 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 understand their ability to heal naturally and gently. I believe there can be improvement in any situation and we are never truly without options. People have come to me when they have been told that they were without medical options and I have seen that homeopathy can be used to help bring improvements that contribute to their quality of life , even in those situations. I find it very humbling to be part of someone’s journey to health; to be able to help people to feel better, to have hope and to be at peace with their world is an amazing experience.
