Back to school is just around the corner!
As your child prepares to head back to school, you might find yourself experiencing a range of emotions, from excitement to anxiety. And guess what? Your child might be feeling the same way too!
For the most part, the transition is usually painless and children are full of enthusiasm and excitement as they start or return to school. But for others, this change can be overwhelming as the child struggles with change.
The good news is whether your concern relates to physical or emotional worries, Homeopathy offers a range of excellent supports to help your child march through their school years, healthy, happy and confidently.
Here are some of ways Homeopathy can help not only your child, but you too:
Coping with these emotional struggles can also put pressure on the physical body so there can often be accompanying symptoms such as bedwetting, nightmares, sleep problems, stomach aches, skin rashes, or ear, nose and throat infections that keep recurring. It is always important to be vigilant and first ensure your child has been medically examined to rule out serious illnesses.
Children are constantly exposed to bacteria and viruses, but a child with a strong immune system tends to “bounce back” and recover quickly after an illness. Conversely, a child with a weakened immune system can be more vulnerable to colds, flu or more serious illnesses.
If you notice that your child is always sick and is stuck in a cycle of recurrent illnesses, such as colds and coughs, throat and ear infections, consider turning to Homeopathy. It can help strengthen your child’s immune response. Boosting your child’s immune system and striving for “prevention rather than cure” is a great way to build up your child’s natural resistance.
At times I see parents and guardians who have been hugely impacted emotionally as they come to terms with their child’s absence from the home and what it means for them. While it is not surprising to feel emotional at this time, when the feelings become prolonged, overwhelming or “stuck”, Homeopathy can be very successful in gently helping a person move forward.
As one mum shares her experience here.
“I was so anxious about my five children at school and worrying will they be alright, will they cope, will anyone bully them and the anxiety has taken over my life. It is relentless, it’s affecting my health and it can go on for months.
I especially dread their first day back at school. Not this time! After seeing Eileen for a few sessions and taking my remedy the change has been amazing. Instead of getting myself in a state I have been absolutely fine and I have been able to separate my experience from theirs. With a little anticipation which only lasted a few minutes I was able to see them off and I’m enjoying watching them grow without the prolonged upset and worry.
I am so impressed with Homeopathy I wish I had known about it years ago!”

I see many parents in my practice who are dealing with behavioral difficulties and temper tantrums in their children. They find it challenging, overwhelming and disruptive and are often at a loss as to how to help them. In such moments, the gentle and holistic approach of homeopathy can offer remarkable support, not only for the children but also for parents who are navigating these concerns.
Here’s a very honest and heartfelt testimonial from a mum I worked with, who shares her transformative journey with homeopathy.
“My daughter’s behaviour had been really bad for about 2 years with temper tantrums and we had already attended a child psychologist. Our first consultation with Eileen took over 2 hours and I felt that the consultations whilst for my daughter also helped me greatly as I got everything off my chest and Eileen was a great listener. I noticed a change in my daughter’s behaviour straight away after the remedies and my family commented that she “was like a different child”.
My daughter also had asthma since she was 2½ years old but she no longer suffers from any symptoms.
It is now 2 years since we first attended Eileen and we do go back now and again if we have any bad patches but things are definitely 100 times better in our house.”

Another mum shares her experience of dealing not only with temper tantrums, but anxiety and chest infections.
“I also bring my 6 year old son. … Along with the tantrums he suffered from recurrent chest infections and congestion, he was also always very hard on himself and got very frustrated very easily. Now, although we have the sniffles and all the normal childhood ailments, he has settled and grown into himself and life at home is a lot calmer .“
