The Consultation

The experience of coming to see a homeopath is very different from a typical doctor’s appointment.

At the first consultation, which lasts for up to an hour and a half, I will spend some time asking you about yours and your family’s medical history. This will help me to see what types of illness you or your children may be prone to, for example conditions such as hayfever, asthma and eczema, which tend to have strong hereditary links.

As well as asking for details about any physical symptoms which you need help with, I will spend time getting to know a bit about you as a person. This includes anything from your sleep patterns and appetite, to what you enjoy in life, or what makes you feel stressed.

I would not expect to spend more than 45 minutes on a first appointment with a baby or small child. However, for older children, teenagers and adults it depends largely on the complexity of the condition which needs treating. Subsequent appointments will, on average, last about 30 minutes for young children and 45 minutes to an hour for older children and adults. I charge per appointment and not per hour, so there is less pressure on time-keeping.

Length of treatment varies a great deal according to the individual patient. However, it is unusual for a course of treatment to require less than 3 or 4 appointments. These will usually be spaced a month apart initially and then, as treatment progresses may be less frequent. Once the initial symptoms have improved it is up to the individual whether to continue with regular ‘top-up’ visits once or twice a year or whether to wait until further treatment may be necessary.

Home visits

I offer home visits within the Ealing area for families with young children. I know how stressful it can be to transport reluctant children around, especially after a day at school and it also means that I have the opportunity to see them in a familiar, more relaxed setting.

Homeopathy is not just about treating illness but achieving and maintaining health. I would encourage you to bring your family along to benefit from this opportunity to built up their natural immunity to infection and chronic disease.

You are welcome to email me any time. I am also available for telephone advice on weekdays from 9 am to 5pm. If I am unable to take your call I will get back to you as soon as I can.
