What you can expect from me:

Your consultation.

When you first come to see me or I first visit you, I will ask you questions about your illness and how it makes you feel, your general health including questions about your diet and your sleep patterns etc. I will ask about any health problems you may have had in the past and your family medical history. These questions will be aimed at finding out what makes your illness unique to you. I will make notes of what you tell me in case I need to refer to them at a later date. In accordance with the rules and regulations of the Society of homeopaths with whom I am registered, your notes will be stored securely and the information that you have given will remain confidential, unless I feel that you are a danger to yourself or others.

I will either prescribe some medicine at the end of your consultation or I will send you your medicine after further study of the information you have given me. Your medicine will be sent by first class post or you can collect it if you would prefer. You will not be asked to stop taking any of the prescribed medication you are currently taking. However, if you wish to stop taking these medicines and it is safe to do so, I will endeavour to help you after you have discussed this with your doctor.
