Consultation - The Homeopathic Treatment Process

This section provides details of what to expect from an initial consultation and/or a follow-up appointment.

 

Initial Consultation

The first appointment will take up to 1½ hour (this may be shorter for a child - approx. one hour). The purpose of this assessment is to allow me to form a holistic picture of you and your health needs. 

 

What preparation is required?

Come with an open mind and let yourself be led by the moment. To help establish a good overview I will ask you about any prescribed medication you are currently taking and about your own and your family's medical history.

Before the first consultation, I will ask you to complete a patient information and history form and to send it back to me before we meet.

My advice: don't hold back and fill it in thoroughly. Take it as an opportunity to reflect on/clarify things for yourself. 

 

Subsequent Appointments

Generally it is recommended that the initial consultation is followed up by two further sessions in order to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. The second appointment will take between 30 to 45 minutes and is usually scheduled within 4 to 6 weeks of the previous appointment.

 

After the appointment

I will work on my case notes and prescribe a homeopathic medicine for you. It will be sent by post within the next few days with instructions on how to take your remedy and additional information.
