Appointments and treatment

Appointments are held in central Stroud, Gloucestershire; parking is available. Directions are provided when arranging the first visit.

The first appointment typically takes 1-1½ hours. During this time you will be asked to describe your health problems and talk more broadly about yourself.

Based on this information, a homeopathic remedy will be selected and sent by post a few days after the appointment. Remedies are normally given as a “single dose” (several tablets taken together as a one-off treatment) or “split dose” (two lots of tablets taken around 12 hours apart). Instructions are provided.

Follow-up appointments typically occur between 3 and 5 weeks after a remedy has been taken. They tend to last up to 1 hour and are an opportunity to hear about and consider any responses or changes there may have been, as well as discuss other issues which may have arisen. If the remedy tried has not produced any clear benefit a further remedy will be selected and sent. There is a suggested maximum of four follow-up appointments followed by a review of how things are going.

The first consultation, especially for younger patients, may be in two steps, the first one being with the parent(s)/guardian on their own, the second with both the parent/guardian and the young person.
