Hazel balances her teaching commitments alongside running her homeopathy practice and offering postgraduate supervision to other practitioners. Her interest in practice and practitioner development inspired her research for her MSc where she investigated the factors which can influence the development of homeopathy practice after graduation. This theme was later revisited in a project with colleague Jean Duckworth, interviewing practitioners who were thriving in practice. Hazel is currently studying for a doctorate in education, with a focus on the influence of online masters level study on the professional lives of Complementary and Alternative Medicine practitioners.
