A homeopathic consultation offers an opportunity to talk in detail about how you are feeling physically and emotionally. I will ask you for information regarding your family medical history, your own medical history, lifestyle and the type of person you are. This is important because homeopathy focuses on the whole person and not just the symptoms that they are experiencing. The initial consultation is expected to take 1-1½ hours. After studying the information given, I will prescribe the remedy that is most appropriate for you. The remedy, in tablet or liquid form, will usually be sent to you with clear instructions on how to take it. The remedy may, however be given at the time of the consultation.
You will be usually be invited to attend a follow-up appointment within a month, when any changes in your physical and emotional well-being will be assessed. There may be a shorter or longer time period before the next consultation, depending on your needs. If you have any queries you will be able to discuss these between appointments.
As everyone is unique, the number of consultations required varies considerably. This can be discussed after the effect of the initial remedy has been assessed. At this time you may wish to ask how homeopathy can be used to maintain well-being.
I aim to establish a cooperative way of working with people; information given during consultations will be treated respectfully and confidentially within the confines of the law.
Homeopathic medicine can be taken alongside conventional medicine without interfering with it. You are encouraged to maintain contact with your GP, particularly if you are currently taking medication.
