About the consultation

and what to expect
 

The consultation

This will feel much like an informal chat as we explore the wider context of your disease and its underlying cause. In order for me to arrive at a clear understanding of your whole state of health, we will veer away from symptoms to discuss your character, the way your condition affects your life, what makes it better or worse, your diet and how you deal with stress. I will consider everything in a non-judgmental way and respect your boundaries. Everything discussed is confidential.

Underlying cause

Homeopathy works from the inside out, often beginning with a change in your mental outlook. This differs to the conventional approach which generally works on the surface, masking the isolated symptoms but not necessarily dealing with the problem as a whole. Although this approach is vital in emergencies, it is also overused. People tend to use conventional medicine as a ‘quick fix’ even though it doesn't necessarily improve overall heath. What tends to happen when you push health or emotional problems down is that they pop up somewhere else. Many doctors recognize that suppressed eczema often turns to asthma later on in life and many people complain of never being well since a particular unresolved trauma or suppressed grief. Homeopathy aims to deal with the cause of our dis-ease, reducing our susceptibility to certain illnesses and building on our own natural immunity. It can be safely integrated with conventional methods and may help with their side effects. Because homeopathy deals with the whole picture, improvements take place on a wider scale, helping energy levels, general wellbeing and the ability to deal with the ups and downs of life.

From the information you give me, I will select a homeopathic remedy that matches your unique pattern of symptoms. If I'm not completely sure I know the correct remedy on the day, I will take the case home and work on it. I will post the remedy out to you within two working days of the consultation.

The follow up

During the follow up appointment, we will discuss the changes that have occurred since the last remedy and explore what needs to be addressed next. I usually see people again within 4 - 6 weeks of taking the remedy however, this may be sooner depending on the problem.

Children

Children respond quickly to homeopathy due to their high vitality. They tend to like homeopathy because the remedies taste nice! I will ask about their sleep patterns, eating likes and dislikes, home, school, friendships and will also need to get an idea of the pregnancy, birth and their medical history.
