Mary Sharma

I have been in clinical practice for almost 30 years and have devoted the last few years to passing on the information that I have collated over the many years of working as a practitioner via public talks, training events, webinars and the courses that I have written. I am passionate about empowering students to achieve their full potential and also to imparting the valuable insights into health and disease that I have gained over the years. Finally, in this latest course, I am covering topics that are not considered relevant in mainstream complementary medicine but which I have found invaluable in my clinical practice over the years.
