What happens when you work with me?
When was the last time you really felt listened to?
What if you could experience being fully heard?
What if you felt like your health and well-being was top priority?
That is what it's like to work with a trained Homeopath.
Think about the last time you went to the doctors office/surgery. What happened?
You probably had an appointment, were late being called in, got your allotted 10 minutes (15 if you were lucky) got written a prescription and sent on your way.
Don't get me wrong, I understand that doctors are far too busy to be taking 90 minutes to get to the bottom of your health issue. There just aren't enough of them and in the UK especially, the NHS couldn't pay for it anyway.
But therein lies the problem. Your health issue has a root cause, and taking a pill to treat your current symptoms, does nothing to address that root cause.
When you come to me, we explore every aspect of you, in as much detail as you are willing to share. Very often, the start of a health issue can be pinpointed back to a specific time in life where something occurred that was less than comfortable. That could be a trauma of some kind, an accident or injury, even back to a traumatic birth. Yes, even back that far for some!
YOU are YOU and only YOU are YOU. Everybody goes through traumas from time to time. Everyone will lose someone at some point in their lives, but without doubt, no two people go through their trauma in the same way.
It is through careful questioning, exploration and unpicking that we get to the root of your issue and start the process from there.
And with every day health issues like, colds, flu, PMS, menopause, headaches etc, no two people experience those in the same way either.
After the first consultation
After our first meeting, you will be emailed your prescription with the dosage and potency to take. Once you take the remedy, there is a 4-5 week gap for the remedy to stimulate your body to start the healing process and then we meet again for a follow-up with takes 30 to 45 minutes.
It's important to have a follow-up for many reasons:
Even if you might not feel like the initial prescription has worked, there are subtleties which you may not have noticed at all. It's my job to identify them.
From the changes that have occurred, and how you have adjusted in the time in between, we can decide on the next course of action. In an ideal world, you will not need any further adjustment. In the real world, some fine tuning to match the changes that you go through is needed. That might mean repeating the prescription, changing the potency or doing nothing and waiting some more.
You are very complex! You are amazing and beautiful and so perfectly formed that solving your problems in the space of 90 minutes is sometimes tricky. Depending on how much 'life' you have experienced, has a knock on effect on how deeply the remedy goes. It's also quite common that some trust needs to be built first, before you really let go of some of your deep seated issues. And that's completely normal and good.
And after that?
And after that, really depends on the issue at hand. I have patients who see me once a month, and patients I've seen only twice ever.
Often these issues have been building up over several years and it's not uncommon to hear a patient say, "my doctor says there is nothing wrong with me.", or, "my doctor says there's nothing more they can do."
If you are experiencing symptoms, there is never nothing wrong!
So working with a homeopath is an investment in your life and health. You will be nurtured, helped, educated to help yourself, and listened to.
