DR Katya (EKATERINA) MISHANINA MBBS BSc MFHom
Prior to studying medicine, I studied psychology at University College London. Since qualifying as a doctor from Barts and London school of Medicine and Dentistry, I have been working in different branches of medicine including general practice, paediatrics, acute medicine amongst others.
During my own healing journey through chronic eczema and topical steroid withdrawal, I realised the limitations of the conventional model of health. I experienced severe side effects of topical treatments first hand without the benefit of addressing the deeper issues. In search of more holistic and natural ways of approaching the illness, I trained in various holistic therapies, including nutritional and environmental medicine, medical homeopathy and psychological techniques. I used these methods in my own recovery and with my clients.
Through my years of practice and experience, I have devised my own unique 3 step system and I draw on a wide range of different strategies, techniques, theories and trainings.
My approach is collaborative, practical and solution-focused. I offer my clients empathy and respect, valuing their uniqueness as an individual, offer respect and privacy.
I consider it an enormous privilege to be part of my client’s healing journeys and to witness their positive transformations, growth and change.
I currently work as integrative medicine doctor in the Royal London Hospital for integrative medicine (NHS) and The Natural practice (private).
I created Natural Solutions for eczema to helping patients with chronic eczema and topical steroid withdrawal through natural methods.
In my non-clinical role, I contribute to integrative medicine conferences, develop education services at he Royal London Hospital for integrative medicine. I published in the peer-reviewed journals (Canadian Medical Association Journal and Reproductive Health).
