Here are some FAQ for your information.
Q – How long have you been in practice?
A – I qualified at the end of 2000 and have been in full time practice ever since.
Q – Who are my patients exactly?
A – I treat a wide variety of people, of all ages, with any condition, be it physical, emotional or mental. I also treat animals. Many of my patients are women with hormonal issues. I am currently experimenting with treating my own plants with homeopathy, with very promising results.
Q – What experience do you have for my condition?
A – Homeopaths don’t treat diseases or conditions. We treat people who happen to have a condition. Although subtle, this makes a world of difference. To be honest, I don’t remember people (or animals) by their conditions; I remember them by their treatment, or the name of the remedy, that is working well for them.
Q – What happens if I have a condition that you have never treated before?
A – As with the above question, this makes no difference to the outcome you can expect, as I work with you as a person, not your condition or disease.
Q – How are you different from other health practitioners?
A – I spend time, listening to your story and asking you about key areas. I invest heavily in my on-going education, far more than I am obliged to. I love homeopathy and I love to help make the world a better place, one person (or animal) at a time.
Q – What type of personality do you work best with?
A – I find that the people who get the best results from working with me are those who are committed to finding a lasting and natural solution to their health problems. Often these people are on a journey themselves. I consider true health care to be a journey towards transformation.
Q – What about treating children?
A – I love working with babies and small children as they are usually so co-operative and are strongly intuitive. But working with teenagers, especially those who are reluctant to come, can be challenging for everyone! So more time would be needed.
Q – What about animals?
A – Again, I love treating animals as they are also mostly co-operative. However, our animals often help shoulder our burdens, so getting help for the human family can go a long way in helping your pets/animals.
Q – What is expected of me?
A – Homeopathy is a hands-off modality of treatment, so the only thing that is needed is for you to be as open and honest as you can when telling your story and when answering my questions.
Q – What type of personality is this not going to work for?
A – I have discovered that those people who don’t get good results from working with me tend to want instant results and don’t have the patience to work through problems as they arise. If you consider yourself to be like this, then I may not be the best person to help you. Although homeopathic treatment can be extremely fast in acute cases, more time is needed for chronic cases, so if you want a silver bullet, you may be disappointed!
Q – What exactly is homeopathy?
A – Homoeopathy is a complete system of natural health care that uses energy as the treatment (you are an energy being, so energy medicine makes perfect sense). It is a natural discipline of health care which restores health gently, rapidly and permanently, in the shortest possible time, in the most reliable way and in the most harmless way. The restoration of health occurs not only on the outside (on the pathology), but also in the inside. For more information, check out my article What is Homoeopathy?
Q – Does this really work?
A – Yes. Homeopathy has an enviable track record going back over 200 years, with people and animals being successfully treated of their complaint, even when every other modality failed. (The principle is actually much older than 200 years.) You can also find some research details here.
Q – What results can I expect?
A – The results I am always aiming for is your complete recovery from your complaints with the tapering off of the treatment.
Q – How quickly can I expect to get results?
A – Often, you can get immediate results, especially in acute situations such as colds and fevers. But for chronic, or long standing conditions, it may take longer to get there, although improvements will happen along the way. If you don’t find any improvement at all after about three months, then we may need to consider a change.
Q – How long will we need to work together?
A – This depends on many factors, such as how long you have had your chief complaint, what other treatments you have had for it, what other complaints you have, what your past health issues have been, how they were treated, and so on. See my consultation details for more information. However, if you work with me regularly, you should see significant improvement within six months, for chronic or long standing problems.
Q – Can you guarantee results?
A – Sadly no. Health is complicated and no professional health therapist is able to offer a guarantee. But I can say I have rarely given up on anyone, and will only do so when I feel we are wasting each others time. With homeopathy, there are so many options we can explore to achieve the results you want.
Q – What will it cost? Do you offer discounts?
A – Please read working with me first to understand what you need to do in order to achieve great health.
Q – How do we get started?
A – Check out my help options to make a mutually convenient time for your first consultation.
Q – I’m not sure I am ready to get started, but would like to stay in contact.
A – In the top right corner of this webpage is a free offer for an educational downloadable report. By getting that, you will receive information emails from me from time to time.
Q – I have a couple of other questions. Can I call you?
A – Yes, you can. I have a space for such calls between 8 and 8.30 am. Or take pot luck anytime. If you have to leave a message, I will get back to you as soon as I can.
