What happens in a consultation?

During the time that we work together, we are in a coaching relationship. I will help you to manage the changes required to create healing by creating a plan and strategies as well as giving you your herbs to take. We will discuss how you are managing these at our follow up appointments. This is a collaborative process, It is important that you are prepared to work towards your desired outcome.

An initial consultation with me will usually take around 90minutes. During this time we will discuss in detail the presenting complaint but also your diet, lifestyle and wider context of your experience of all these aspects. I may also perform some simple investigations such as taking your blood pressure or performing physical examination.

 This enables me to take a holistic view, find the root of and address the particular problem effectively by making a bespoke a herbal prescription and plan for you. 

A course of herbal treatment may be proposed. This may take the form of a tincture (a herbal extract preserved in alcohol), a tea, powdered herbs in capsules or a topical application such as a cream.

I will also suggest dietary and lifestyle changes or a different therapy such as massage.

I may ask you to consult your GP for further tests or arrange to use a private laboratory if certain tests are unavailable from your GP.

Follow up appointments are usually at 4 week intervals although I may ask you to check in after the first fortnight at first. A follow up appointment usually takes 35-45 minutes depending on the complexity of your circumstances.
