The Consultation

 All consultations are conducted according to the code of ethics as laid down by the Society of Homeopaths and as such are confidential.

Private consultations take place by appointment only at the clinic.

Home visits may be available depending on the circumstance and may incur an additional cost for travel.

Skype consultations are available if travelling a distance would otherwise prevent attendance.

The 1st appointment may last up to 90 minutes in order that the homeopath can get as much detail as possible about your health and what you want to gain from treatment.

You will encouraged to talk about why you want homeopathy and to give information about your sleep,energy, appetite, likes and dislikes, and any other family medical history.

The more information you can give the better. It doesnt matter what you choose to talk about but just to be honest and "say it as it is ". I may ask some questions to gain more insight into the real you and make sure your remedy is tailor made to suit you and your exact state as opposed to another persons.

After the consultation, a full analysis of your case is made so that a remedy can be carefully chosen to suit you. This can take some time so that your remedy is sent to you shortly afetr the consulation with directions for taking and follow up advice.

 

Between Appointments

You will be advised to note any changes you experience after taking the remedy and to discuss them at the next follow up. Telephone/email advice is available at no extra cost but if the enquiry lasts more than 5 minutes time then you will be advised to book in for a follow up.

 

Follow up Appointments

Arranged 4-8 weeks after depending on the remedy given.

They usually last 30 minutes -1 hour to review your response to the remedy taken. You may be given the same remedy to repeat, to wait and see or to take a different one. Any decision will be fully explained with you.

Further treatment may be necessary with most people needing 4-6 visits to get the maximum benefit from therapy.

 

Advice re Diet/Lifestyle

Homeopathy is not the miracle cure and  a good diet and a sensible balance between work, rest and exercise play an essential part in building and maintaining better health. I will give advice regarding any obstacles to cure where I see fit and make recommendations to see other professionals where necessary (nutritionist,physio, pilates teacher, counsellor). If there are deep seated issues homeopathy may work best in conjunction with counselling.

As a professional counsellor and CBT therapist you could choose to see me outside the homeopathy sessions or I could refer you on.

 

What about seeing my GP?

 

Homeopathy is about trying to keep you safe during treatment and I can only do this if you maintain your relationship with your GP, especially for routine check ups and emergencies. Your GP can also arrange for blood tests and x-rays to be taken that may be needed or to refer you to a specialist. A doctor is a useful resource so that you can make your own informed choices as to the type of treatment you choose.
