Dr Anne Wynne-Simmons is a retired general practitioner & homoeopathic physician who now lives in Chichester and practises part-time as a Craniosacral Therapist.
Anne studied at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in London and qualified as a doctor in 1971 (MBBS). She initially focussed on paediatrics (DCH), and then spent two years in the Far East, mainly in Papua New Guinea, treating a wide range of conditions including leprosy, malnutrition, and spear wounds. On returning to the UK, she trained as a General Practitioner (MRCGP).
While in general practice, Anne became acutely aware of the many limitations of conventional medicine and started to look at complementary methods to promote healing. Initially sceptical of homoeopathy, she witnessed some remarkable results, inspiring her to train at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital (MFHom), and to work there for ten years. For five of those years, she was Head of the Children's Department. In 1994 she left to concentrate on her own medical practice, while continuing part time at the hospital until 2009 to provide homoeopathic training to doctors.
Throughout her career, Anne has maintained an interest in nutrition and the impact of vaccinations, as well as child health.
Anne has been impressed by the benefits of cranial osteopathy, and after decades as a doctor she trained as an osteopath (MLCOM). She then undertook further training as a cranial osteopath and spent a year at the Osteopathic Centre for Children. She is now focussing on Craniosacral Therapy (BCST).
Anne now has grandchildren. She resigned from the medical register after 43 years as a doctor, and also resigned from the osteopathic register. As Anne has retired from the medical register, she can no longer take medical responsibility for clients. All medical conditions must be overseen by a doctor. Anne is working part-time as a Craniosacral Therapist.
