Your first consultation may take between 1 and 2 hours, with follow-up consultations lasting around 45 minutes. I will need to build up a complete picture of your condition, including your past medical history.

To be sure to prescribe the best medicine for your particular problem, I need to understand your individual needs. You will be asked about many aspects of your life, such as your emotional state, your sleep patterns and how you cope with stress. I will then choose a remedy for you that most closely matches your unique pattern of symptoms. Prescriptions for acute illnesses, such as fever, vomiting or flu, are usually assessed much more quickly.

Patients often feel a sense of wellbeing, optimism and relaxation after taking their homeopathic medicine. The speed with which you feel relief will depend on the condition being treated. In acute ailments, this can be very fast indeed. In more chronic conditions, your recovery rate will depend on the nature and duration of the illness and on your individual vitality. I will always let you know what kind of improvement you should expect to see in the following few weeks after treatment.
