Homeopathic Consultation

As your homeopath, I am not only  interested in your physical symptoms but also take into consideration other aspects of your life, such as stress, relationships, traumas, reactions to environmental changes, diet, quality of sleep, personal traits, your past medical history, etc.


This is your time and space to explore and discuss your health concerns, thoughts and feelings. My aim is to listen and to seek to understand you as an individual, both in health and disease in order to prescribe a remedy tailored to you.


All the information provided is treated with respect and in strict confidence.


New consultations may last up to 90  minutes. Follow-up appointments may last for up to 45 minutes. They are scheduled according to individual needs but are usually spaced at 6-8 weeks intervals until you feel an improvement in your health.  Remedies and homeopathic treatment can act fast in some conditions whilst others require more consistent treatment, such as in conditions that  are chronic and long standing conditions. The same fee system applies to consultations via Skype.  Skype consultations must be paid for in advance of the appointment's start by following here.


I provide a 10-15 minutes initial  introduction on Homeopathy  to answer your queries.  You are welcome to contact me if you wish to discuss your homeopathic treatment.  I do not have a secretary. I rely on my answering machine.  I will do my best to contact you back on the same day.

What happens during a homeopathic consultation?

When you first make contact I will ask your reasons for seeking my help, any medical test results and treatments. This enables me to assess if it is appropriate for you to start homeopathy. If not, I refer you back to your doctor or suggest you seek assistance from another health professional.

 
During your homeopathic consultations I encourage you to continue ongoing treatment with a medical professional. Your first consultation gives you the opportunity to discuss all aspects of your health in privacy and confidence. I take a holistic view of your health to select a homeopathic remedy that best matches you as an individual. I supply the homeopathic prescription, at the end of the consultation or a few days later in the post.

 
In most instances I supply a single named remedy which you take as a one off dose or on a repeated basis for a limited period. I provide lifestyle and dietary advice if appropriate. We agree a plan and arrange follow-up consultations at time intervals appropriate for you, usually 6-8 weeks apart, or sooner for acute or very painful conditions.

 
To monitor your progress, I normally ask you to report (by phone/email) between appointments. At follow-up consultations (usually about 45 minutes) we discuss changes you have experienced, and I provide homeopathic prescriptions as required. The time you will need to see a homeopath and number of consultations depends on the reason why you sought help and how you respond. Timing of return visits is determined by individual need. For long term conditions, once you are making good progress, I monitor your progress by phone or email, I supply remedies by post and you return for consultations as needed.

 
Many patients have been registered for a number of years and consult me as and when the need arises. Homeopathy is tailored to the individual’s needs. It is important that you have sufficient information to make an informed choice about your healthcare. I encourage you to have medical tests offered by your doctor and to take opportunities to discuss options.
