Your first consultation will take about 1 ½ hours (one hour for children) in the clinic’s peaceful and comfortable room. It is an opportunity and space in your life to talk about what is troubling you and to be listened to without judgement. You will have plenty of time to tell me about your problem and how you feel – and give me the information I need. Talking further about how your symptoms affect your life will create a full health picture for me to prescribe on. Consultations are confidential.
I will assess your health on all levels including:-
- Your health history
- Any medication you are taking
- How you experience day to day stress
- Events that have affected your life
- Likes and dislikes,
- Food preferences
- Fears and aversions
- Your sleep and dreams
We will talk about the aim and desired outcome of treatment and I will make a first prescription either at the end of the consultation or later by post: it will be tailored to your specific needs. Remedies are given as sugar pills or drops and are easy and pleasant to take.
Further appointments and keeping in touch
Follow-up appointments take up to 45 minutes (½ hour for children) and are arranged initially at 2 -4 week’s time with intervals becoming greater as you progress. They are important in evaluating how symptoms have changed and what is happening in your life to determine the next step in treatment. Clients tell me they value appointments for the opportunity to reflect and gain self-knowledge.
Because, typically, there is a gap of a few weeks between appointments, I encourage you to keep in touch with me so that the best outcome is achieved: I find that the people who progress best are those who are fully committed and involved in their treatment. You may telephone, text, or email me. Please especially let me know if you have any concerns about your health. (This service is included as part of your treatment).
The length of time treatment will take very much depends on how long you have been ill, your general health and vitality and your lifestyle (amongst other factors). A rough guide is that the longer you have built up illness to this point in your life and the more serious it is, the longer it will take for you to be in best health, but you should start and continue to feel the benefits from the outset! Children often respond quickly because they have a shorter history of illness.
Because health is something that is constantly adjusting and affected by lifestyle and events, I recommend that you continue to maintain your health with homeopathy, perhaps once or twice a year once you feel on top form.
