What happens in a consultation?

A consultation is a safe, non-judgemental space for you to tell me what is going on for you. No symptoms are unimportant, or “just your imagination”.

My clients tell me that I am easy to talk to and obviously, the more you can tell me about things, the better. But because homeopathy looks at all of you – physical, mental and emotional – the good news is that…

… a lot of the information that helps me to find a remedy for you is easy stuff like: 


Do you love pizza or would you rather eat a curry?


Are you a thirsty person – or not?


Do you sleep on your left side or do you prefer to lie on your back?


Do you love snow and hate the summer, or is it the other way around?


Are you warm-blooded or are you always the one with an extra jumper on?


Are you tidy – or not at all?


Do you dislike crowds, or heights, or insects or mice?


Do you love music and dancing, or would you rather curl up with a book?

Among the thousands of homeopathic remedies, it is often these little details that are the key to choosing the best remedy match for you.

For example, a remedy that will suit an anxious person 
who is generally warm-blooded, thirsty and loves spicy food,  
will absolutely not do for an anxious person
who is chilly, loves ice cream, and likes to cat-nap.

So the characteristics of your organism are vital.

Together with an outline of your medical history and what health issues run in your family, this helps me find the right remedy for you. 

A first consultation lasts about 90 minutes so I can cover what I need to know to find the individual remedy which is the best match for you.

Follow-up consultations last about 40 minutes to give us a chance to explore what has changed since you took your remedy, in order to guide the choice of your next prescription. Follow-up appointments are usually spaced about 5 weeks apart.

It’s amazing. All that grief I felt, it’s all gone … all that anxiety and emotional stress is just not there anymore. Quite incredible.  Kim (grief and anxiety)

Your remedy

When I have a good picture of things, I will look for a remedy which matches you and your symptoms – one that is truly personalised and specific to you in your situation now.

After the consultation I will send you a prescription for your remedy and details of how to take it as well as where you can buy it from, depending on where you are in the world.

Remedies are usually small spherical granules from 2-5mm approximately and are made from a sucrose base, but they can also come in power or liquid form.

The granules are placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve – they are easy to take, and children usually love them because they taste slightly sweet.

The liquid remedies come in a dropper bottle. Liquid remedies are almost tasteless.

The powders and the granules can also be dissolved in water and sipped. They do not change the taste of the water.

What changes can I expect?

Everybody is different, so it’s difficult to predict exactly how you will react, but with the right remedy you are likely to:

feel calmer,

sleep better, and

be better able to move on through with what is bothering you.

Physical symptoms should improve, and depending on the history and how they have been treated in the past, may well go away entirely.

As well as feeling better in yourself, you often feel clearer about your situation and also gain insight into yourself as you go along.

So you can end up gaining increasing perspective on where you are going, and how to move forwards.

People often find this helps the process of change, as well as being quite reassuring because you start to have a better idea of how your system functions and reacts to life.

The pace of change will vary from person to person; it can take from days to weeks to see some change for chronic situations, and as little as minutes for acute situations such as panic attacks.

Moving to better physical and mental health is a process, not a single event.  It can take some time, but the improvements can be very significant.

What to consider

The majority of clients experience change within the first two weeks of taking their remedy, often sooner. 

Although conditions that you have had for a long time can take longer to resolve, you should experience benefits quickly.  

The right remedy can really move things! 

We will be in a better position to judge how you might progress after we have seen how you respond to your remedy, but you should budget for at least four appointments (one initial consultation and three follow-ups) initially. 

We are going to be working on nudging your system so you get better and you can enjoy your life more.

You should make permanent gains

  • without having to suppress symptoms,
  • without having to deal with unpleasant or damaging side effects, and
  • without having to take medication for ever.

You are investing in a better future for yourself, so you can be as free as possible from physical and mental difficulties.

Free to be the person you feel is really you.


After the first couple of weeks of using the homeopathy I noticed a huge difference – the eczema had almost gone … After a couple of months my face and neck were completely eczema-free. … I just love not having to think about it anymore.
