A few words about myself
What patients say
Consultations are available on the following days:
Phone messages: As I do not have a receptionist, you will often get my answer-machine. This can be annoying but please do leave a message and I will do my best to phone you back on the same day by practice closing hours at the latest, unless your message tells me otherwise.
Evenings, Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays: In very urgent cases, if you are my patient, you can phone my private phone number. You will receive this number with your first remedy.
Should I not be available soon enough, phone the Homeopathic Helpline on 09065-343404. Calls will be charged at £1.55 per minute but the team is very experienced and fast.

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 over 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
Please note that the statements below are patients’ personal experiences and are not based on any placebo controlled, double-blinded studies, nor approved by any authority of any kind, including the ASA Ltd. (Advertising Standards Agency, a private, self-regulatory body of the marketing industry)
A letter by Yvette Banicevic was taken down from this site because it implied that homeopathy had helped her son who was on the autism spectrum. According to the ASA etc. I am not allowed to say that homeopathy can help children on the autism spectrum to get better because ASA etc. have not seen any scientific evidence. See my Autism page.
Another letter by Misha Bakker was taken down for the same reasons. See my Autism page.
“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”

A testimonial by Sarah Higman has been taken down because it implied that I had helped her son who has Asperger's. See above and see my Autism page.
"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.”
A testimonial by Shashi Ioannides has been taken down because it implied that homeopathy had helped her son who is on the autism spectrum. See my Autism page.
A testimonial by Mohamoud Gurhan has been taken down for the same reasons. See my Autism page.
“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.”
