Marlow Purves, BA LCH MARH: Healer, Homoeopath & Astrologer

I have been studying and practicing Homoeopathy and Astrology for over 30 years, during which time I’ve incorporated many different tools into my practice; counselling, vibrational essences, guided meditation and healing journeys.
I gained a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and English Literature (1985), a Licentiate of College of Homoeopathy (1990), and am a Member of the Alliance of Registered Homoeopaths and the Guild of Homoeopaths (2001). In addition to private practice, I offer workshops in Homoeopathy and in Astrology. My personal experience as a patient of Martin Miles in the 1980’s not only changed my life but inspired me to undertake study and consequently practice myself. During that time, I also had the good fortune to meet Margaret Koolman, a wise and insightful Astrologer, who likewise inspired me to venture further…
In the last 30 years I have traveled and lived between Canada and the UK where I have raised my family (now grown), practiced and taught both Homoeopathy and Astrology. Presenting seminars in homoeopathy for Midwives, Hospice Workers and lay people, I have endeavoured to encourage and equip people to manage their acute health concerns safely and effectively. In 2017, I began to explore Family Constellations and have been enjoying collaborating with Family Constellations Practitioner, Elaine Harris, to offer workshops combining the healing power of homoeopathy within the system of Family constellations. Passionate about my work with people, I am endlessly inspired by their journeys and courage in the face of life’s challenges. It is my privilege to share this work.

I am currently practicing in Cambridge, UK and available for consultation in person or by Skype/Zoom Telephone: 07528-188901

Love in the Time of Corona

Greetings in this most extraordinary of times! The Constellation of the World is currently aligning itself in an unprecedented way. Amidst the uncertainty and fear, an emerging sense of solidarity, community, connection (albeit remote in many cases!) and increasingly shared purpose is also emerging. Compassion is key as we ease ourselves into our new positions in our global family.

The Not Just Any Constellation Workshop that we had planned for April, will of course, not be going ahead… as we take our place in the world’s initiatives to respond to the current circumstances. We are considering this an ‘indefinite postponement’ rather than an outright cancellation and we will keep you informed as and when the workshop will be reinstated.

The storm of media attention on the unfolding pandemic has left many people feeling traumatized, through fear of infection, transmission or by the impact of interruption of work and relationships due to the isolation measures we are adopting. Remember that homoeopathy offers much in terms of emotional support during the stress and shock of the news. It has a proven track record in the treatment of symptoms associated with flu and colds (according to statistics from the Spanish Flu of 1918, patients who were treated with homoeopathy had a 99% success rate!) . Contact me at 07528-188901 or if you have any questions.

Also, if you are still wanting to look at the Issue you were bringing to constellate in the workshop, Elaine offers online sessions, so please feel free to contact her on 07880 701032 or

We send our love and best wishes as we explore this new territory together, and please do not hesitate to contact either of us if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Almost Imbolc

‘And the Seasons, they go round and round…’ Joni Mitchell

Here we are, the light is definitely returning, the birds are singing and chattering in their mad WAKE UP! song and we are reminded that new life is burgeoning. Imbolc, (February 2) the first stirrings of Spring.

This is announcement time, a traditional time in the Old Calendar where dedications and declarations of intent are made. Emerging from the blistering winter winds, the deep sleep of the dark, there are stirrings and efforts to reach up and forward into the newly emerging light.

So, in keeping with this time, I am announcing the commencement of two courses in the coming months.

Amidst the chaos of political, environmental and societal change uncertainty mounts, camps are chosen and some of us attempt to erect barricades. Astrology offers an opportunity to pull back from the binary of ‘us and them’ by illuminating and describing many, many different options for understanding and appreciation of ourselves and ‘the other’. Join us as we draw back the shade on an ancient language that offers insight, guidance and a glimpse at potential. Access the building blocks of ‘the long view’ and come to understand the perfection in every moment as it leads to the next.

No previous knowledge of astrology is required, a sense of humour and willingness to join in the conversation is a must!

One of my all time favourite series to share. Homoeopathy, even after almost 30 years of practice, is close to my heart. This introductory course is called Life’s Resource because as people with bodies, we are well advised to develop familiarity and awareness of the owner’s manual! Centred around 36 common first aid remedies, the series will also cover basic homoeopathic philosophy (WHY we prescribe remedies) and illustrate the use of remedies with genuine cases. The aim of the series is to enable you to feel confident to prescribe in acute situations. We’ll cover, headaches to hang-overs, fevers to injuries and common childhood ailments.

Remedy Kit?!

Moving out for the first time?  Freedom, new friends, adventures, self-sufficiency, independence and experimenting with being YOU? (Oh… and classes, higher learning and new connections) You’ll have heard all the stuff about learning to cook, clean; doing it your own way, and fending for yourself. ‘The Introduction’ for moving to your new university life is full of how-to’s, resources and assurances that all you need can be accessed from your new location.

Your parents are concerned about whether you’ll eat more than one ‘real’ meal in the term and if you’ll sleep… ever again. What if you get sick? What if you have an accident? How will you cope? And stress, what about managing stress?

One thing that might be missing from your University Get Ready list is a remedy kit. A no-nonsense go-to option in the event of coughs, colds, the effects of late nights, hang overs, accidents, injuries, anxiety, gippy tummy or even just plain old homesickness.

Homoeopathy is a safe, effective and powerful ally whether you’re at home or away. It provides a gentle and proven alternative to conventional medicine with no conflict with other medications. Learning about remedies enables you to take care of your health in a way that ensures a richer experience of your new life.

Join me for an afternoon’s informal tour through the Basic 18 remedies that can support you through many first aid and acute situations. The afternoon will include a (very) brief introduction to homoeopathy, remedy indications with examples, what to expect from a remedy and when to seek help.

When?       1-4pm Friday September 15, 2017
