Although varying practitioners and secular trainers can instruct couples on how to practice NFP, not all of them do so from a Christian perspective. Understanding the authentic beauty of NFP comes with seeing ourselves through the eyes of God as our Creator. This helps us to see grasp the gift that NFP truly is to humanity.

Homeopathic treatment seeks to bring balance to the individual, recognising that the human body is created intrinsically wise and is always adjusting itself to achieve homeostasis. Dr Willson recognises that individuals are integrated beings where mind, body and soul are of equal importance. Support of the individual is achieved by prescribing appropriate homeopathic intervention for the presenting case. This intervention may be in the form of oral or topical homeopathic remedies, nutritional and lifestyle support as well as the use of biopuncture.
Dr Willson regards each individual as unique and precious in the eyes of their Creator. She strives, with professional and clinical integrity, to accompany her patients on their journey to healing at their core, whilst at all times acknowledging that all true healing comes from the Master Physician.
