What Does Treatment Involve?

I allow two hours for the initial consultation, providing an opportunity to discuss your full physical and emotional health in detail and to explore any concerns you might have. This length of time focused on you can often have a beneficial effect in itself. I encourage you to tell me as much as possible about yourself so that I can fully understand your personal case, as this provides the best means of getting to the root of your problems and healing them. You will have the chance to ask questions about your health and homeopathy.

Following your appointment, I will generally prescribe a homeopathic remedy to suit you, in tablet or liquid form. I may also give you one or more poems, and/or I may prescribe flower essences, and occasionally I may use other techniques such as EFT/tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique).

A follow-up consultation is arranged, usually a month later. This takes about 45–60 minutes, and allows your response to treatment to be reviewed. Further follow-ups are arranged as required. Telephone and email advice are also available between consultations if you have any concerns. Appointments for children are shorter and depend on the age of the child.
