Homeopathy is a safe and scientific system of healing, which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It has been well established now for almost 200 years. It recognises that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the client who needs treatment, not the disease. The remedies used by Homeopaths are derived from natural sources, including plants, minerals and metals. They are dispensed in the form of small pills, which dissolve easily in the mouth. Homeopathic remedies do not have side effects and are not addictive, this makes them safe for the youngest of babies through to the elderly and are also safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
What will happen during a consultation?
At your first appointment Dawn will take a medical and family history along with any information of events occurring
around your illness developing. She will then ascertain (either at the appointment or after the appointment) which remedy best suits your needs and decide on a course of treatment for you.
How long will my consultation last?
Your first appointment will last for 1 hour (up to 45 minutes for children) and follow up appointments will last 45 minutes
(up to 30 minutes for children).
Do I need to bring anything with me?
If you take any medication or supplements it is a good idea to bring these along with you. Also it is often helpful to make a few notes (if you wish) of things you want to tell me about, your health history and and family health history tendencies. For children it is also helpful to bring their health record book if you have it.
What will happen at the end of my consultation?
At the end of your consultation you will be able to ask any questions that have not already been covered or you wish to clarify. Dawn will also chat to you about the next step of your treatment plan. (Please note, some clients find that one appointment may be enough to bring about the change in well-being that they were seeking, whilst others may find there is a longer journey to their goal - it is important that to help you on your goal you do your best to follow the treatment plan where possible, and to not have pre-conceived ideas of how long your journey will take).
What if I am unable to travel to the clinic?
Sometimes clients (for a wide range of reasons) are unable to travel to the clinic. If this is the case for you, please contact me about either a possible home visit or telephone and email consultations. We can also make an appropriate plan for follow up treatments (these may either be home visits or telephone consultations).
How much is my health investment?
When investing in your health, it is important to be aware that the rates charged cover time spent with you at your appointment and also time work undertaken both before and after your appointment.

Emergency Mini Consultations?
I feel it is an asset for all my clients to study my natural first aid course, and to have a remedy kit (also available from myself) at home.
Sometimes we need a little help, but are not well enough to make a full appointment. A mini consultation may be a way for you to receive that help. If you would like a mini consultation, these last up to 15 minutes and cost £15.00 . Ideally they will be via Skype or telephone, but where needs be, email and text can also be used. These are suitable for acute situations (such as injuries, emergencies, colds, childhood ailments, sudden rashes, stomach bugs, ear aches etc). I usually recommend a full appointment to follow up the reason why you have picked up the ailment once you have started your recovery. A full appointment should usually be with in about2- 3 weeks.
This help is open to existing clients, however, a convenient time must be pre-arranged - I will do my best to fit you in as soon as possible.
