Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen at the consultation?
- Your first consultation lasts for around
one and a half hours where you will tell me about yourself and your
symptoms. Homeopathy recognises that good health comes from treating
the mind and the body together, so equal importance is given to
emotional, psychological and physical symptoms. The questions are not
designed to be invasive but are trying to match a picture of you to the
remedy that is most likely to help you. Homeopaths work to a strict
code of ethics and all consultations are confidential. Registered
members of The Society of Homeopaths are qualified and hold professional
When will I get a remedy?
- After the consultation I may need to
take a little time to carefully choose your remedy and in that case will
send it to you by post within the next couple of days.
Will I need more treatment?
- It is always best to have a second
consultation around 4-6 weeks after the first one for a chronic problem
so that we can assess your progress and consider further treatment if
necessary. The second (and any subsequent sessions) usually lasts
between 30 and 60 minutes. We will decide together what health goals
you wish to achieve and we will work together to achieve them. Remember
that the action of the remedy can continue for several weeks, or even
Can I claim homeopathic treatment from my private health

cover the cost of treatment. Simply Health in particular is very good for this
What about the medication I am currently
taking from my doctor?
- Most medication can be taken alongside
homeopathy as the remedies are non-toxic, non-addictive and have no side
effects. It would be helpful for me if you let me know of any
medication you are currently taking.

How do I take the remedy?
- You will receive a help sheet with your remedy with instructions and advice on what to expect. Homeopathic remedies usually come in
pill form. They are tiny and should be placed under the tongue where
they will dissolve. The remedies are fragile and so you should avoid
handling them. Certain strong foods, substances and odours are thought
to interfere or antidote the action of the remedy so you should avoid
contact with these for 15-30 minutes before and after taking the remedy.
