The initial consultation takes approximately 1-1.15 hours during which a comprehensive case history is taken. Follow up consultations take place 4-6 weeks later and last approximately 30-45 minutes.
The homeopath is interested in you as an individual and will require as much detail as possible about your symptoms. For example, when did they start, how do they affect you in your daily life, possible triggers and what makes the condition better or worse.
In addition we look at aspects such as your medical and family history, energy levels, sleep patterns, how you are affected by environmental factors such as weather and temperature, appetite, mood changes, anxieties and how you react to stress. Symptoms you may think of as unusual or unimportant may be of great value.
The aim of the consultation is to get an overview, not only of your presenting complaint, but also of you as a person.
How many consultations are required?
This depends on the individual. Homeopathy is a process of treatment. First aid and acute complaints generally respond quickly while chronic illness may require prolonged treatment.
Confidentiality in homeopathic consultations conforms to Irish Law.
