What happens when you visit the Homeopath?

The first consultation usually takes between 60 – 90 minutes. Homeopathy focuses on you as an individual so your Homeopath will encourage you to give information about yourself, as well as the condition for which you require treatment.

Homeopaths understand that establishing good health involves treating both physical and emotional symptoms.

In addition to asking you about these symptoms they take time to listen to you and to get to know you as a person, in order to choose the remedy closest to your individual symptom picture. These remedies then stimulate your own body’s healing process to strengthen your health and immune system.

What can Homeopathy treat?

Because Homeopathy treats the person and not just their symptoms it is not limited to certain diseases but can be used in the treatment of most complaints. It can also be used in addition to conventional treatments.
