Dr. Elke Browne was born in Germany and migrated to Australia in 1983.
It was here, she studied Yoga, Eastern Philosophies, biological sciences such as Anatomy & Physiology, Biochemistry, Nutrition, Homeopathy as well as Quantum Physics and Metaphysical Sciences, the scientific study of consciousness, existence and reality.
Dr. Browne has a Bachelor Degree in Human Health Science and Human Biology, Masters and a PhD in Metaphysical Science (Summa Cum Laude), specialising in Hypnotherapy and Transpersonal Counselling, and is a qualified classical Homeopath.
After 20 years of practicing in her field of expertise, and holding senior positions within the Public Sector in areas such as Human Resources, employee relations, staff development and Aboriginal Affairs, Dr Browne has made the tree change from Perth to the South West and opened her practice focusing on understanding, empowering and enhancing the human condition.
Dr. Browne is a certified behavioural Counsellor and offers in her practice;
Homeopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that concentrates on whole-patient wellness, while emphasizing prevention and the process of self-healing through the use of specifically prepared remedies that have their origins in nature.
Homeopathy attempts to find the underlying causative factors of any condition rather than solely focusing on symptomatic treatment.
It can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction or alongside allopathic approaches.
Homeopathic medicine is a vibrational medicine or energy medicine based on the scientific principles that all matter vibrates to a precise frequency and wavelength, and that by using resonant vibration, balance of matter (cellular molecules) can be restored.
It gently invites stuck energy to move or vibrate appropriately again, and over-stimulated energy to explore more stillness.
Over time, the bodily system finds balance between the two by being able to move through the entire range of possibilities dynamically, fluidly and easily.
As a classically trained Homoeopath, Dr Browne firmly believes Homeopathy has treatments for many if not most ailments human beings can encounter.
Homeopathy arose from herbal lore and early medical praxis in 1796, when a very clever German chemist and physician named Samuel Hahnemann developed a new and ground-breaking method to preserve and extract energy signatures of plants, herbs and minerals, and use these as medical remedies.
Hahnemann was disillusioned with the medical system of the time and its barbaric approaches to healing.
He developed a system that is based on ‘Similia Similibus Curentur’ or like cures like, which essentially means that a remedy that produces a unique symptomatology in a healthy individual, will in fact treat the exact same symptoms in a person that is ill and displays those symptoms.
According to this system, the choice of the medicine is fundamentally based on the principle that the medicine must have the capability of producing most similar symptoms of the disease to be cured in healthy persons.
Homeopathic remedies mirror resonance of the trauma or dis-ease to the body so that it can self-correct. In other words, vibration and resonance create an environment for self-healing.
Homeopathy stresses the existence and operation of energy (electromagnetic) in a living organism, and recognizes that the human organism is a triune entity consisting of body, mind, and consciousness. This energy, which is responsible for different manifestations of life, was termed by Hahnemann the ‘Vital Force’.
The vital force has to respond and adjust to every stimulus it is exposed to. To most minor stimuli we are exposed to in daily life, the vital force can respond and adjust easily and unnoticeably. If however, the strength of the stimulus is stronger than the vital force itself, it is forced to adjust in such a way, that the consequences are now perceivable by the body, mind or consciousness.
Homeopathy believes disease to be a disturbance in the vital force or resonance of the system, which may be expressed initially as constitutional (character) traits, and then as signs and symptoms of disease.
Homeopathic patient pictures involve not only taking the current and obvious symptoms a patient presents with, but involve a very thorough investigation into family history, previous ailments, previous drugs taken and their side effects if any, mental idiosyncrasies that might indicate strong believes and thought patterns that may have contributed to the current symptoms, life-style, alcohol intake, any recreational drug intake, food preferences, patterns of waste elimination, smell and colour of urine and feces, sleeping patterns and quality of sleep, dream cycles, and any ameliorations or worsening effects of the present symptoms.
The first consultation with Dr Browne can take up to two hours, depending on the severity of the drug picture.
After that, Dr Browne will undertake a thorough reading or repertory of the main points of the consultation and find the most appropriate similimum, i.e. the remedy that has the best picture fitting the patient’s symptoms, all of them.
In this, Homeopathy takes the whole person into account, a holistic look at all of the indicators that energy is not at ease. The individual comes before the disease, it is largely a matter of understanding the symptoms of the person (his or her physical, mental, general and constitutional symptoms) beyond just his or her disease symptoms that helps in individualizing two individuals suffering from a similar disease, and thus finding the appropriate remedy.
Homeopathy works with acute and chronic symptomatology, with adults as much as with children and babies as well as with animals.
Transpersonal counselling differs in its approach to other forms of psychology, psychoanalysis or psychiatry in that the counselor concentrates not only on the mental health aspect of a client, but takes into account the whole person.
Transpersonal counselling is a holistic system of addressing the mental, physical, intellectual and emotional aspect of the person, ascertaining the core initiating event that brought about the problems such as anxiety, fear, low self-esteem, addictions, phobias and such.
Transpersonal counselling is not a clinical system of counselling, but a guiding system that assists the client to recognise the trigger event, the underlying belief and bias system and the reactions caused by the unhelpful way the subconscious or unconscious mind influences choices and decisions.
Transpersonal counselling is based on the idea that humans are more than mind and body but are also composed of intangible, or transcendent factors that make up the whole person.
Just as your mind and body sometimes require treatment, your spirituality or energy and other intangible aspects of yourself often require healing.
Dr Browne is a licensed transpersonal counsellor who uses various methodologies such as the Event-Action Sequence Remodeling or Reframing technique and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) as well as a number of behavioural or character identification tools that can assist the client in understanding his or her behaviours in a more holistic way.
Please note, Dr Browne does not provide consultations to anyone currently under the care of a psychiatrist, mental health facility or under the influence of psychiatric prescription medication, or has a history of medically diagnosed mental health conditions unless referred by a medical practitioner.
Dr Browne does not treat anybody currently under the influence of or addicted to recreational drugs such as methamphetamines, cocaine, ice or similar.
Hypnotherapy is based on metaphysical science, meta meaning beyond Newtonian physics.
Hypnotherapy takes into account that human beings are programmed from the time of conception to the early adulthood, and these programs or beliefs are driving a person’s decision making and the way they perceive the world and their place within it.
Hypnotherapy, similar to transpersonal counselling, takes into account that the client is more than the physical body, even more than the mind.
Every person is a consciousness that experiences a physical existence and is subject to events and environmental influences that will program the subconscious or the unconscious mind in ways that has unhelpful effects on the personality, behaviour or decision making.
Under hypnosis, which is a deep meditative state where the client is deeply relaxed but fully aware, Dr Browne takes the client into his or her subconscious mind where programs that have been introduced within the formative years or programs instilled through trauma or deep emotional events later in life are apparent.
Here the client is able to recognise triggers or events that influence his or her behaviour, personality and choices, and where the client is able to reframe or override beliefs that are unhelpful with programs or beliefs that will improve the life of the person.
A client under Hypnosis is not able to be influenced to do anything that does not align with his or her core personality, morals or ethics.
Dr Browne will always ensure that the client feels safe, secure and comfortable with the agreed consultation approach.
Dr Browne is a certified Hypnotherapist and focuses on issues such as anxiety, phobias, emotional realignment, giving up habits such as smoking and other soft addictive behaviour, improving self-confidence, improving healthy choices and reframing unhelpful beliefs, biases and conditionings.
