Tania Twentyman is passionate about supporting people to come back to a place of balance and harmony with their health and wellness, supporting individuals and families through homeopathy. Having experienced first hand the changes homeopathy made to the health of herself and her family on all levels, she knew she wanted to pursue it as a profession. Now a registered New Zealand Homeopath with over 16 years of clinical experience, she combines her background in health and wellbeing with her parenting experiences as a mother to her 4 wonderful children, all of whom have been brought up using homeopathy. Here she talks to The Natural Parent Magazine about the passion behind Holistic Homeopathy, the challenges she has overcome along the way, and her hopes and dreams for the future.
The passion: What inspired you to set up your business?
For a long time, I have been interested in natural health, self-development and living in a way that honours both the planet and each other. I had experienced such good results with using homeopathy for myself and my children with a wide range of things, such as chronic ear infections, behavioural challenges, fevers, first aid, coughs, tummy bugs, hormonal imbalances, birth trauma, depression and personal growth, that I wanted to help others. Homeopathy was the best tool I had come across to do this. It is such a powerful way to bring about lasting changes on all levels – physically, emotionally and mentally.
The launch: How did you start out in the beginning?
I offered free consults to everyone I came across…family, friends, colleagues and strangers! I started practising before I qualified because I was so passionate and just wanted to share this with everyone I came by.
The innovation: What was the biggest breakthrough for you with your business?
My biggest breakthrough was realising that life had given me experiences and opportunities to learn something that could be of benefit to others. The hours and years I have spent parenting, being a Homeopath and studying personal growth and development was really invaluable when I shared it with others to help them on their journey.
Yin and Yang: How do you balance work and family?
Both are my passions so I’m still learning how to juggle this. I don’t see my work as work… the old adage ‘Do what you love for a living’. However, I also find that I need quiet contemplative time in nature to process and digest things a little deeper, so walks in nature and daily meditation are touchstones in my life.
