A Typical Session
The first consultation lasts between 1-1½ hours where you will be able to discuss all areas of your health and wellbeing, you will be listened to with empathy in a safe, confidential and non judgmental environment. This includes your physical symptoms, past medical history, diet, lifestyle, personality and sleep patterns. A detailed and accurate case enables a remedy to be chosen that most suitably matches the whole picture of your case.
Follow up appointments are at 4-6 week intervals depending on your individual needs and last 30-45 minutes where you will be able to discuss and reflect on the action of the remedy.
The number of treatments needed varies for each individual depending on the severity of the symptoms and the amount of time they have been experienced for. It is advisable to have a minimum of 3 appointments, unless it is an acute illness, as not many illnesses will be resolved in just 1 appointment. This gives time to assess the action of the remedies and then review the course of treatment.
In between appointments
It is best to note down any symptoms, thoughts and feelings that you experience between your appointments so that you are able to discuss them in full next time.
If you are unable to contact me at any point and you are in need of homeopathic advice you can ring the Homeopathic Helpline on 09065 343404 where you will be able to speak to a registered homeopath. Lines are open 9.00am to 12.00am and calls cost £1.53 per minute plus network extras.
In a medical emergency please immediately call your GP, NHS Direct (111) or the emergency services (999).
Appointments last approximately 1 hour. During the initial appointment you will be able to discuss all areas of your health and wellbeing in a safe and confidential environment in order to establish a treatment plan.
During the treatment you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and then you will be able to relax back into the chair whilst your bare feet are worked on.
You may experience different sensations or emotions during the treatment indicating congestion or imbalance in a corresponding area. These indications show that the body is responding in a positive way.
Following the treatment most people experience a state of wellbeing, feeling energised and relaxed and are able to have a better night sleep. Other people may notice increased urination, runny nose, tiredness, or feel more emotional after treatment; these are all normal reactions and should pass within 24-48 hours.
It is important to keep drinking lots of water following the treatment to help eliminate toxins and waste products from the body and minimise these effects.
