About Tatiana Tesker

Let me introduce myself. I’m a Registered Homeopath with College of Homeopaths of Ontario with more then 10 years of professional experience. I help people to reach their best potential and restore their health using natural and homeopathic remedies.

How I became a Homeopath: After immigrating to Canada in 2001 I was debating which profession to choose – I had my Medical Psychology degree and experience working at Fertility Clinic as a psychologist in Kiev, Ukraine as well as teaching psychology at Kiev Linguistic University. I thought about the possibility to continue in the same field here in Canada, but I was so intrigued by Homeopathy – my almost constant headaches disappeared after а consultation with professional homeopath and taking prescribed homeopathic remedy. Also our paediatrician was helping my children with their health exclusively with natural and homeopathic remedies. I saw results, I started to read books to understand this method of treatment, I became passionate about it. I always was interested in psychosomatic aspects of health and psychophysiology – how our emotional state can affect physical health and vice versa (my PhD project was on Psychosomatic Aspects of Infertility). Homeopathy allows to address that totality and heal the whole. In 2003 I went to Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine to study Medical Science and Homeopathic Medicine and graduated in 2006 as a Homeopathic Doctor and have practiced homeopathy since. I run my private practice from my home office in Ancaster, Ontario and work as a Teaching Clinic Supervisor at Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine.
