Medically qualified homeopathic doctor, medical herbalist - Central London, Kensington West London, Twickenham


London Homeopath

I am a holistic medical doctor who practices herbalism, homeopathy and healing in West London and Twickenham, Middlesex.

Born into a family of doctors, I left school to study medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. I qualified as a conventional medical doctor in 1985 with a sense of questions still unanswered. I went on to work in several different areas to gain experience, including: general medicine, respiratory medicine, general surgery, urology, gynaecology, accident and emergency, and psychiatry of the elderly. A process of elimination led me to consider psychiatry as a career so I started on a training scheme.

Doctor Charles InnesIllness
By this time my own health had become a problem. What had started as recurring glandular fever (Epstein-Barr/mononucleosis) while at Bart’s had gradually become an overwhelming debility of mind and body. I now know myself to have developed additional associated liver dysfunction, blood abnormalities, fungal infestation, food intolerances and adrenal exhaustion, amongst other things. At the time I was a medical enigma and despite obvious pathology no specialist was able to diagnose or help me. When eventually I was unable to work desperation prompted me to post a plea for help in a doctors journal. The replies put me on to nutrition, homeopathy and herbalism - what we now call complementary medicine.

Complementary medicine
After a faltering and partial recovery I decided to change career and went to study at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and the Faculty of Homeopathy, qualifying as a homeopath in 1992. Since then I have continued to study widely as my allegiance has always been to ‘the truth’, rather than any particular therapeutic school. This has included a four-year Honours Degree in Medical Herbalism at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine, a two-year training in healing at the College of Psychic Studies, two years at the Dynamis School for Advanced Homeopathic Studies and a training in naturopathic detoxification in the form of the Gerson Therapy. These are the main things I have integrated into my current practice although I have studied other areas too.

Further illness
In 1997 I was diagnosed with a large nerve tumour in my head, for which I had surgery. I was lucky to survive the long and perilous operation without the disfiguring surgery that had been planned, although the tumour could not be fully removed. I am told that inevitably it will regrow but have managed to avoid this eventuality so far. Since then I have been diagnosed with paralysis of half my diaphragm; cause unknown.

Therapeutic advances

My journey of study, experience, discovery and realisation has brought me the understanding needed to develop new therapeutic tools. For example I have found new indications for herbal and homeopathic remedies, developed a new way to trigger self healing in some people and written a thesis on the basis of a systematic approach to herbalism. The purpose of these developments is their application, which is to keep improving my therapeutic efficacy. Although I have found these helpful in my practice they are of course as statistically unproven as most of the rest of complementary medicine.


Posts held
I worked at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital for many years before co-founding and medically directing one of London’s first large centres for integrated medicine. I have practiced complementary medicine in many other settings too, including other hospitals, private clinics, Harley street, naturopathic clinics, homeopathy centres, charity funded centres and with GP’s. I have also appeared on television and radio and written for the press.

Professional bodies
I am: registered with the General Medical Council and Society of Homeopaths; a member of and mentor for the National Institute of Medical Herbalists; on the Specialist Register of the Faculty of Homeopathy.

Medical insurance
I am recognised as a Specialist in Homeopathy by AXA PPP and most other medical insurers who cover homeopathy (they tend not to cover herbalism or healing).
