I have over twenty years' experience working with children of all ages. As a mother of two, I understand the pressures that children and parents face. I believe that all people have potential; sometimes they just need some assistance in realising this.

I work with children, teenagers, adults and families and have special interests in working with children with ADHD and separated families. I am currently reading towards my PhD through UCT.

Dr Yeshantha Padayachee

Homeopathic Doctor

M-Tech Hom (UJ)

Practice no.0543039

My passion for health and natural medicine was sparked from childhood and this led me to study a Master’s degree in Homeopathy through the University of Johannesburg. I have always preferred a natural treatment for illness, and truly trust that in changing one’s lifestyle, one can greatly improve quality of life.  I believe the human body is capable of healing itself, and with the right nutrition and supplementation, any of your personal wellness goals can be achieved! I have a special interest in children, stress management and thyroid disorders.
