What happens during a consultation?

The consultation focuses on you as a unique person. You will have plenty of time to tell me about your health issues and how the symptoms affect you personally, and so that I can get to know you as a person, we’ll also talk about aspects of your life such as what you enjoy, your dislikes, temperament, how you react to stress, sleep patterns and energy levels. This will help me choose the most appropriate homeopathic medicine for you and your general vitality, as well as for your symptoms.

This first consultation will last around an hour and a half.

There will usually be a follow-up consultation in around 4 weeks. I’ll ask you about any changes that have occurred since you began treatment and make adjustments to your prescription if necessary.

Follow-up consultations are shorter, typically between 30 and 45 minutes but may last up to an hour if required.

Your prescription

If your need is urgent I will of course give you support remedies straightaway, but generally I need time to examine your case in depth after the consultation so that I can decide on the best prescription for you. Being thorough and precise, this may take me several hours, depending on the complexity. Once it is ready, I will send your remedy to you by first class post with clear written instructions on how to take it.

What should I expect after taking the remedy?

The nature of your illness and your own individual vitality will influence the rate of your recovery. Even so, you can expect some change quite quickly, especially in acute ailments, where relief can be swift indeed.

How many consultations will I need?

Just as homeopathy treats each individual person as unique, each individual will react uniquely to the remedy.

Keep in mind that homeopathy is a process rather than a ‘quick fix’. For some people one or two consultations are sufficient, whereas others may require more. The number of consultations you need will depend on a number of factors, and will take into account the nature and severity of your illness, how long you have had it and what else is going on in your life. Consultations tend to take place at longer intervals as your health improves.

I do offer a free 10 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and help you decide whether homeopathy is for you.

Fees

My fee includes the consultation, homeopathic remedies and brief phone calls or emails for advice in between consultations.

Initial consultation                    £60                              Child 15 and under           £45

Follow-up consultations          £40                              Child 15 and under           £30

Fees payable by cash or cheque at the consultation.

Though I would always prefer to meet you for consultations, if that is not possible for some reason, I can offer a telephone consultation. The fee would be the same as for a face to face consultation, payable in advance by bank transfer.

In addition, I may be able to visit you at home, though there would be an additional charge for this dependent on the distance and journey time.

Some health insurance companies will reimburse the full or partial cost of your homeopathic treatment.  For a list of companies see here: http://www.a-r-h.org/help-with-treatment-costs/

Note: If the fee is genuinely preventing you from making an appointment and benefiting from homeopathic treatment, then please contact me to see if we can find a solution.
