Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Bsc, LicAc, BAc, DipAc(China), DipCHM, MBAcC, MABP, LCH, MCH, PCH, Cert.ECBS, RSAPH

Jonathan grew up on a farm in Sussex - Jersey cows, Landrace and Wessex pigs, chickens, geese and a horse. So his earliest memory of farming is (apparently aged 3) of steering the tractor while his father and other workers loaded hay onto the trailer behind it. His feet didn't reach the clutch but he could reach the hand-throttle, with very satisfactory results but unexpected repercussions: his next job was spreading cow-pats with a fork.

After that he began to grow up and eventually received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from Edinburgh University before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant.

He trained in London with Mary Austin (then a very prominent acupuncturist and homeopath), at the College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (LicAc), the British College of Acupuncture (BAc), and the College of Chinese Medicine Nanjing in China (DipAc). 

Then he studied homoeopathy at the College of Homeopathy (LCH, MCH) and the Dynamis School for Advanced Homoeopathic Studies (PCH). He also trained at the Northern College of Acupuncture, (DipCHM) and at European College of Bowen Studies (CertECBS).

He has also trained in and practised various other therapies including Bowen Technique, Remedial Massage, Reflexology, and Shiatsu... and continues to attend courses on a range of therapies and techniques.

In recent years he has incorporated Japanese Matsumoto-style acupuncture into his practice with great results. This, together with Unified Acupuncture theory has enabled him to treat many problems he had difficulty with before.

Jonathan now works partly in the Spirit Health Club at the Holiday In Hotel, 132 Corstorphine Road, EH12 6UA, a splendid location for the Edinburgh Natural Health Centre next to Edinburgh's zoo: easy to find, on lots of bus routes and with excellent free parking. See map above.

Regional Co-ordinator

Founder Member of SAPH

Jonathan was a founder member of the Scottish Association for Professional Homeopaths (RSAPH) which, like the Society of Homeopaths, (of which he was formerly a member) has strict criteria and an onerous process for registration, requiring evidence of experience, continuing professional development, and a realistic ability to practise. Jonathan is currently Chair of the Association.

Many people consult Jonathan for homoeopathic treatment. He finds that a knowledge of Chinese medicine enormously enhances his understanding of homeopathic medicine, and vice versa.
