WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE CONSULTATION
The first appointment usually lasts ninety minutes (one hour for children), and subsequent appointments are sixty minutes (thirty minutes for children).
You will be asked about your ‘presenting complaint’ (the reason you are consulting a homeopath), and also about your health history and factors that may have contributed to this, your family health history, and information about you as an individual. All this contributes to gaining an understanding of you as a whole person, which is an essential part of the homeopathic treatment process. The process is a collaboration between you and the homeopath and allows you to take control of your own health and recovery whilst benefitting from the experience and expertise of the homeopath.
Homeopathic treatment is a process. Generally, the longer you have had a condition the longer it will take to treat, though usually, you will feel some benefits quite quickly. The number of appointments you need will vary but it is usual to need three appointments initially, a month apart, after which time your progress will be reviewed. It may be beneficial to undertake further treatment after this, either at monthly intervals or less frequently.
Adult, first appointment (ninety minutes) : £75

Child, first appointment (sixty minutes) : £50

Payment is by cash, cheque or BACS on the day of the appointment.
