What is a Homeopathic consultation like?

In the initial consultation questions are asked about your physical and emotional conditions so that the Homeopath can build a complete picture of who you are, a particular individual with likes and dislikes and physical conditions.

After the consultation time is spent by the Homeopath in research and analysis to find a suitable treatment plan. In chronic cases, treatment is a process over time; depending upon circumstances, regular follow-ups are made to monitor progress.
Acute conditions usually need less follow ups. The first consultation can take up to an hour and a half with follow ups lasting between 20-45 mins.
