A FEW WORDS ABOUT MYSELF
I was born in Bremen, Northern Germany in 1947. Between 1957 and 1968 I lived with my parents in Colombia, South-America. From 1974 to 1981 I studied economics, sociology and social psychology at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main and graduated in 1981 as Diplom-Soziologin (MA in Sociology).
In 1988 I came to England because of my English husband. I took my PhD (doctorate) from the Faculty of Economics at Imperial College London in 1994.
I have lived and worked in many countries all over the world, consulting, teaching, researching. In 1996, while working in India for a year, I found a homeopath who cured me from twenty years of migraines. I became curious about homeopathy and its German origins.
After returning from India I studied homeopathy for four years at the London College of Classical Homeopathy and graduated in 2003 with a licence to practice.
Since 2003 I am a registered member of the The Society of Homeopaths, the largest organisation registering professional homeopaths in Europe. I practice in accordance with The Society's Code of Ethics and Practice, and carry full public liability and indemnity insurance.
Another role that is important to me is my contribution to Friends of the Children of Orissa, where I have been a trustee and honorary secretary for nearly 25 years.
Since my childhood I have loved classical music; I play piano and classical guitar (both not very well...) and particularly love Opera and Baroque music. My favourite chamber orchestra is Fiori Musicali, who perform in many wonderful old churches and other such places in and around Northamptonshire.
Last but not least, I would like to quote Joe Madiath, a friend in India who many years ago became very ill and was told by specialists - after many examinations and tests - that he had about six months to live. By chance he saw a homeopath who gave him some of those little white pills, and within two months he recovered. "Homeopathy?" my friend said, "I don't understand it, I don't believe in it but I am alive because of it!"

WHAT PATIENTS SAY

“Our eldest son was struggling with many issues and after reading Dr Tinus Smits, M.D. book Autism Beyond Despair decided to seek out a CEASE practitioner.
James was a happy child, loved playing outdoors although not talking I could understand him perfectly. But that all changed at primary school he was in the bottom 1% for language skills and the experts were not sure if he was autistic or retarded, finally Auditory Processing Disorder (on the autistic spectrum) was diagnosed.
James would understand a word one day and forget it the next. Speech therapy was extremely frustrating for him. Any noise would cause him pain (even florescence lights were too loud) and help at school was limited. I had one teacher say to me "that it would be kinder if he was retarded and didn't realize that he was different". Falling further and further behind at school - James came home saying that something was wrong with his brain, we decided to take matters into our own hands and commenced different therapies, one being The Listening Programme, but the most powerful gains have come through homeopathy and working with Ursula. Today James is sitting his GCSE - he is an A* student for Maths, Science, Physics but most extraordinarily will probably achieve a B in English. I still remember the desperation and worry - all we wanted was a happy future for our son. I cannot express how grateful we are to Ursula - James's future could have been very different.
It all seems like another life time ago and I remember how frightened I felt not knowing if we were making the right choice but I am convinced just by looking at James; what Ursula achieves is quite remarkable (..... she is also very kind and loving), he is now a capable, well rounded young man, with a bright future. Parents: 100% happy.”
“Our now 13 year old son was born a healthy baby. He was fully breastfed but had problems keeping the milk down and we were told it was just a reflux and will soon go away on its own. But it never did until after almost 1 year of vomiting everything, we found a homeopath and her remedy magically made it all go away for good. Our son was growing and eating healthily and was never really ill, breastfed until 14 months old. In general, he was a happy baby boy.
This all changed in a matter of days just after he received MMR vaccine. He started to cry more than usual, had spasms, he did not respond to us calling his name, he never really looked in our eyes anymore and often ran in circles, screaming, panicking and turning literally purple. This really concerned us. There was hardly any eye contact, hardly any physical or other interest in us as his parents, no language, his previous baby babbling disappeared, he had no interest in toys or world around him and in comparison with his peers, he was mentally not at their level at all. More behavioural problems, panicking, screaming, sensitivities to everything, fussy eating, frequent diarrhoea, eczema, ear infections, asthma and many, many more problems started appearing out of the blue and nothing helped.
By the age of 2-3 he was fully in autism and by 5 he was diagnosed with severe Autism.
At that time, we stared to look for possible treatments. We found a Dutch homeopath, Dr. Smits, who treated autism with homeopathy. We decided to try anything. Dr. Smits used CEASE to treat autism with homeopathy and first started to detox all vaccines our son had. After this treatment was done we continued with our current homeopath, Ursula, who lives much closer and also treats autistic people with the same therapy system. Ursula is now treating our son for almost 6 years. Looking back, we've done so many treatments for our son over the last 9 years that I can write a whole book about it but no treatment was as successful as homeopathy.
Homeopathy really does work and can treat autism, it needs a lot of patience, determination and dedication because it takes time to work but the end result is amazing.
Thanks to homeopathy our son is now completely free from autism. He lost his diagnosis last year and he now has a bright future in front of him, getting good grades and preparing for GCSEs because he plans to go to university and study ICT. We are extremely grateful to Ursula and all homeopathy and we are now treating absolutely everything else mainly with homeopathy.
Dear Ursula, thank you so much for giving us back our long lost son!”

“I feel that Ursula is very ‘in tune’ with me, she is kind, empathetic and a good listener. I feel nurtured by my visits to her.”
“I first went to see Ursula with my baby daughter after a recommendation from a friend, and I will always be grateful to them and glad that I did.
Ursula is not only an excellent and highly qualified and skilled practitioner in homeopathy but she is also a wonderful person: kind, caring and generous. She is intuitive, a good listener, and she is always intelligent and clear in the way that she explains her practice.
She has tenaciously helped me through homeopathy with a persistent problem and always offered alternative ideas about nutrition and other therapies that may also help.
Homeopathy has always been successful for my children, and they adore her.”
“I am very privileged to be a patient of Ursula. After years of seeking answers and remedies to help me out with my problems one of my best friend mentioned Ursula. All I could do was trying, I had nothing to lose. The changes and happiness Ursula brought in my life thanks to Homeopathy are tremendous. Her diagnoses and remedies work because they are tailor made to me. We have a profound and genuine dialogue that enables Ursula to go to the heart of the problem and therefore helps with finding the best remedies. I am astonished at the power of homeopathy, it works wonders for me. Ursula is also a very kind person, it only takes a few minutes with her to be at ease and understand she will do her utmost to help you.
All I can say is genuinely “thank you Ursula for being such a wonderful person and Homeopath”

“I cannot recommend Ursula and her holistic approach to healing highly enough. She has been treating my son who has Asperger’s/ADHD for just 3 months, but the difference in his behaviour has already been considerable. His aggression has almost disappeared, and he himself has expressed how much calmer he feels since using the homeopathic remedies. I have every confidence that as Ursula goes on to treat his hyperactivity and other symptoms, we will see similar success!”
"I just finished talking to a good friend of mine about my experience of receiving homeopathic treatment from you. If you had just overheard that conversation …. that in itself would have been the most rave review of your wonderful remedies!
I shared with my friend how for instance it has been the first winter in 18 years that my son Saif (who has Downs Syndrome) didn't even need a flu shot.. where previously he used to sink into a deep bronchitis every other month and would even cough up blood, as the worst of his symptoms. Now after your treatment he is able to fight the common cold and flu as if he has the immunity of Hercules and I have never seen his worst symptoms in the last 4 months :)
My own experience has been that your remedies have greatly benefitted me and have reduced recovery times from months to days at least in my personal case.
So this is coming as heartfelt thanks from me and my family."
“We have found Ursula to be a most experienced and caring homeopath; we have seen a number of others in the field but none did we find to be as professional or sincerely committed in helping the less fortunate and sick. Indeed we travel over three hours one way to see Ursula and trust her healing insight for all our family. We are very lucky to have found this rare and precious gem of a homeopath.”
“Ursula is an extremely knowledgeable homeopath, who is also one of the kindest people I have met. She has in-depth knowledge of all aspects of homeopathy and is wonderful with children and helping them heal. Because of her extensive knowledge, she helped by daughter enormously with the difficult task of healing her gut, and I wholeheartedly recommend her. Thank you Ursula.”
“In my experience, Ursula Kraus-Harper is a truly wonderful homeopath. At my first and every subsequent consultation, she has been very welcoming, putting me at ease with her kindness. She is an expert in her field and I benefitted greatly from her selection of remedies and wise advice. Ursula also treated my husband, my sister and her family all of whom hold her in great regard.”
“I undertook homeopathic treatment with Ursula for myself and my 7 year old daughter. We were always treated with the utmost care and kindness, and Ursula was always a great listener too! I was very happy with our therapy/remedies, and would highly recommend Ursula to others.”
“We found Ursula via a recommendation and were so happy we did. We didn't really know a lot about homeopathy but really wanted to try it as an alternative therapy for our autistic son. He responded to the treatment really well and his on edge behaviour was minimised from the very first visit. Ursula was very accommodating to us and helped us to understand how the process would work and also how it could help my husband who was suffering with alopecia. Thank you very much Ursula for all your help and we will definitely be back when we are ready for the next treatment.”
It's Mohamoud Gurhan, Y.'s father. I would like to give you an update about Y. Since we stopped the Sulphur, which he only took three days, his hyperactivity has decreased and he became calmer, than he was before the medication. He is listening more and his attention is much better. He used to fight his brother a lot, and that has changed as well.
He is using more vocabulary that I never thought he knew. I don't know what to say but, this was amazing, if I didn't believe the effect of Homeopathy remedy before, I believe now .
Thank you very much for your help.”
“When I came to Ursula, I had severe asthma and breathing difficulties. I was on pumps regularly and on steroids occasionally. I had severe eczema, stress and depression. I started with Ursula without much expectations. Her treatment has been nothing short of miracle. I have recovered 80% from my health issues. I really appreciate Ursula's selflessness and passion for care for patients. Ursula is my life line today.”
“Homeopathy and Ursula have been amazing life savers for me and my family. The effect of the remedies given to me was often instantaneous. It is incredible that so little granules are capable of making such a life changing shift, but they are! I wouldn’t have believed it myself, if it hadn’t actually happen to me.
I was suffering from stress and fatigue; I wasn’t the vital, dynamic woman who once ago was in control of her life. I did not want to put chemicals into my body but I did not know what else I could do.
Since I went to my first appointment with Ursula it has been an amazing journey. I gained confidence and health. I am now waking up at 5 a.m. every day to exercise and train for my first five kilometre run. My whole thinking has shifted and I have converted my whole family to the benefits of Homeopathy.
Thank you one million times for your help.”
