Dr Andrea Wiessner



About Me

Andrea Wiessner

I qualified as a doctor in 1989 in Germany. I worked in conventional medicine for 8 years, first in hospital medicine, including paediatrics, and later as a GP. I undertook part of my GP training in the UK. Whilst working in this conventional environment, I became more and more dissatisfied with the fact that I was usually only treating symptoms, but not really dealing with the underlying cause of the ill-health of an individual person. Patients were returning with similar problems over and over again and I was starting to look at other ways of dealing with health and disease. Having become more aware of the connection of mind, body and spirit, I wanted to look more at the person as a whole. I also wanted to find ways to strengthen the general health and vitality of my patients in order to prevent illness and disease. In this search, I became more open to more subtle ways of healing.

I began studying homoeopathy in 1993 and it has been my passion ever since. I received my specialist designation in Homoeopathy in Germany in 1997 and started to work as a full-time homoeopathic doctor in 1998 at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital (RLHH), now the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM). I gained membership of the Faculty of Homeopathy in 1999 and have been on the specialist register of the Faculty since 2003. I am also involved in teaching Homoeopathy.

One of my special interests is treating children and the family as a whole. This interest led me to Craniosacral Therapy which, having experienced it as a patient myself, intrigued me. I trained for 2 years at the College of Craniosacral Therapy in London and qualified in 2006. I have incorporated this therapy form into my work at the RLHIM as well as my private practice and I also run a craniosacral mother and baby clinic in a children centre in Islington.. I am registered with the Craniosacral Therapy Association of the UK. However, if it is possible, my main goal is always to strengthen the organism as a whole and to use complementary medicine. Nature has so many resources and often the organism only needs to be stimulated appropriately.

I have been in private practice since 2001, using Homoeopathy but since 2006 also offering Craniosacral Therapy. Having been medically trained however, I am not opposed to conventional medicine. When used appropriately, it has so much to offer. I think it is ideal to use the best of both worlds. Complementary medicine can be used alongside conventional medicine.

I am registered with BUPA and AXA PPP and most health insurances provide cover for homoeopathic consultations with me. German speaking consultations are also possible.

Additional qualification: MD with thesis about the investigation of the pressure and flow in the arm veins by phlebodynamometry and ultrasound-doppler-technique at the University of Bonn, Germany.
