Frequently Asked Questions - My Services

What happens in a consultation?

An initial consultation lasts approximately 90 minutes.

This time is yours to express how you feel, what you would like some help with, what symptoms you experience and how life is for you.  Confidentiality is always paramount and information shared is viewed objectively.

A full medical history is taken, along with a lot of information which may at first seem irrelevant to your current problem. These include your preferences for food, weather, environment etc. as these are fundamental expressions of you they help to build up a comprehensive picture.

After the consultation I will work on your case to find the remedy I feel is
the closest match to your whole profile.  Your remedy will usually be sent to you through the post.

Follow-up consultations last approximately 45 minutes.  These are usually at 4 - 6 weekly intervals.

It is useful to make a note of any changes, no matter how slight, which occur between appointments.

If I feel it would be for your benefit I may direct you to seek advice from other therapists or to consult your doctor for tests or further investigations.

What's my background?

Homeopathy was my first big discovery when I stumbled across it over 20 years ago as a way to solve a long term health problem of my own.  I was suffering with excruciating headaches that no doctor could find any explanation for.  There was nothing they could offer me except painkillers which weren’t even working.  Finding a Homeopath was a huge relief.  Not only did she really listen to how I felt but she said she was the first person who said she could help and help she did.  Within a matter of months these horrific and debilitating headaches were at thing of the past. 

This experience led me to have a keen interest in Homeopathy.  I decided to train in it myself and qualified in 1999, becoming a Registered Member of the Society of Homeopaths in 2001.  I constantly strive to update my knowledge studying with such great Homeopaths as Jeremy Sherr at his Dynamis School and developing my own style of practise influenced by the Rajan Sankaran’s Sensation Method.
