Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship

Each year the Winston Churchill Memorial Fund award Travelling Fellowships to about 100 people.


Winston Churchill Award

In 2004 I was awarded a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship in the category of “Unconventional and Complementary Medicine” This was genuinely a ‘Chance of a Lifetime’.

The award was for me to go to France and the USA to study how homeopaths in those two countries treat children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). One of the reasons I chose the USA is because there are more children diagnosed with this condition there. The American medical profession has been prescribing these children medication for longer than they have here, so the homeopaths there have more experience of working alongside these drugs.

I visited homeopaths in San Diego, Houston where they have a specialist ADHD / Autism clinic, Seattle where there is another specialist clinic, Vancouver, Ohio and Boston.

I also went to France to see how they manage there with the lower doses of remedies than we tend to use in the UK.

I met, shadowed, and worked alongside pediatric GPs homeopaths and psychotherapists who use homeopathy over there. I was away for seven weeks in all.

 In both those countries I gained a lot of experience and tips for treating these children. On my return I ran a number of training days and workshops for homeopaths in the UK sharing my new expertise and extensive knowledge with them.

And as a result I am now able to give these children a much better level of care than in the past, a ‘best practice’ has now come out of this.

In 2019 Her Majesty the Queen allowed those of us with this award to use the letters C. F. after our names, a great honor.
