“I’ve been seeing a homeopath, Hilary Fairclough, who’s fabulous and has been treating me since about 1998. It’s helped me through some really difficult patches in my life and it’s really supportive without being intrusive. I would go to my homeopath before my doctor, unless it’s something really serious. I’ve tried most alternative therapies available to be honest. The one that I’ve stuck with is homeopathy and I think I will always use that.”
