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 incur an additional cost.
Telephone and Skype consultations are available if travelling a distance would otherwise prevent attendance.
The First Appointment
The first appointment may last up to 90 minutes in order to 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 doesn't 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 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 after the consultation with directions for taking follow up advice.
You will be advised to note any changes you experience after taking the remedy and to discuss them at the next follow up appointment. Telephone or 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 follow up.
Follow Up Appointments
Arranged follow up appointments will be in 2 - 4 weeks after, depending on the case and the remedy given.
They usually last 30 minutes to 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 chronic people needing another 6 - 10 visits to get the maximum benefit from the therapy.
Advice regarding diet and lifestyle
Homeopathy is a miracle cure but 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 and make recommendations to see other professionals where necessary. If there are deep seated issues homeopathy may work best in conjunction with counselling.
What about seeing my GP?
It is recommended that you maintain your relationship with your GP or specialist. When necessary homeopathic and conventional approaches can be used alongside one another to give the most effective and appropriate medical care. In many cases homeopathic treatment can gradually reduced or remove the need for conventional drugs. Any changes in use of conventional medication should be discussed with your prescribing doctor as treatment progress.
