Our Trustees


Jacki Becker

I qualified as a homeopath in 1991 and have practiced for almost 20 years at Clapham Common Clinic although moved for a few years to Milton Keynes and since 1999 I have lived and worked in Totnes, Devon. Prior to studying I was a teacher of primary school children in Inner London for 15 years specialising in Equal Opportunities and Special Educational Needs. I have been teaching homeopathy in London and in Bristol at the Contemporary College of Homeopathy since 1992. I am also passionate about teaching my patients and the wider public about the real wonder of homeopathic philosophy and materia medica (information about remedies from provings).

I like to work in interdisciplinary environments especially working alongside the medical profession. I have been active in attending parliamentary meetings to this end (integrated healthcare), particularly since the attacks on homeopathy as a science began in earnest!



Em Colley
Trustee and Chair

Em qualified from the North West College of Homeopathy in Manchester in 2007 and has since studied with Jeremy Sherr on his Dynamis course for Advanced Homeopathy. She is passionate about sharing the message of what homeopathy can do and since 2014 has been working with 4Homeopathy on its social media campaign. As well as running her homeopathic practice from home and Craven Clinic, a multidisciplinary clinic in Skipton, North Yorkshire, Em is working to help homeopaths gain confidence in their use of social media in order to reach a wide audience and be able to effectively communicate the potential of homeopathy.


Machteld 150x150Machteld Erkelens

Machteld qualified at The School of Homeopathy in Stroud in 2012 and at Jeremy Sherr’s Dynamis school in 2013. She runs a practice in Wells (Somerset) and is a tutor for The School of Homeopathy. Machteld has lived in the UK since 1995 and comes originally from The Netherlands, where she was a Speech and Language Therapist in various health care settings (rehabilitation centres, psychiatric hospital, municipal health department and private clinic). She is passionate that everybody has a choice in their health care and that homeopathy is regarded as a valid option on its own or as part of an integrative medicine approach.



Simon Taffler

I specialise in homeopathic healthcare, with a career that has encompassed training and clinical practice in England, Israel, Paraguay, Sri Lanka and North America and, teaching and research at colleges primarily in the UK and USA.

I opened Life Works, a multi-disciplinary complementary medicine clinic in London in August 1985. After 20 successful years, in 2005 I moved my clinical practice to Marylebone, London W1.
Nothing matters more to me than seeing the curative effect of homeopathy in action, something that I am privileged to witness every day. My involvement in the this Trust is about ensuring that others understand, appreciate and experience the benefits of homeopathic healthcare.
