Clare became interested in homeopathic medicine in 1990 when a dose of homeopathic Silica 30c prescribed by a local homeopath cured her son’s recurrent ear infections. She then trained as a homeopath at North West College of Homeopathy and started practising homeopathic medicine in 1994.
Clare and Dr Pat Strong started Wellforce in 1997 in order to create a centre of excellence for integrated medicine. Clare practised homeopathic medicine at Wellforce from 1997 until 2012. From 1998 to 2006 Clare and Dr Pat Strong provided homeopathic treatment for women with menopausal problems at the Sheffield NHS Community Menopause Clinic.
In addition to being a director Clare works at Queen Mary University of London where she helps design pragmatic clinical trials of a wide range of mainstream and alternative interventions to improve health.
