Welcome to The Golden Centre. My name is Ian Hamilton, a qualified homeopath and the founder of the Centre. This site was first set up in 2005 after the death at 52, of my partner Catriona Urquhart, 8 years after her diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer. Its aim was to give advice and information and to offer a network of useful approaches to those who are looking for ways of managing the disease. This will still be part of the site and will be on a special page with its own blog, on the Breast Cancer Support button of the menu.
Now it’s back in a new format and the main point of The Golden Centre is to encourage people to stay creative to stay healthy. There is plenty of evidence to support this and we will guide you to it.
When the Golden Centre was first set up, the social media world was in its infancy. Networks were harder to access. Now thanks to facebook and other channels, linking people is much simpler and more universal.
We aim to set up a network of information, therapies and practitioners which support this view. Taking control of your life, your treatment, your decisions and your outlook is the best way to achieve clarity about all aspects of life. It’s about choice, its about trying to be free from constraints and allowing creative thinking into your decisions and not just be just dealing with the day to day matters. Play and attitudes to work are fundamental to being happier humans.
The other purpose of the site is to promote homeopathy and link this to practitioners who may be able to help in staying healthy and creative. Homeopathy is a therapy with 200 years of experience in helping many people to be well.
Other therapies are suggested as part of a network of support, look at the menu for links to these.
