If you are unsure whether homeopathy is for you, simply wish to explore what is involved, or would like to get a feel for the clinic and to meet a practitioner, we offer a free thirty minute pre-consultation.
Take the opportunity to experience what happens in a homeopathic consultation, and to explore whether homeopathy is suitable for you.
You can book a free pre-consultation by telephone during working hours or by email. Just let Reception know your preferred practitioner, if you have one. If you don’t, a practitioner can be agreed upon based on your particular requirements and your availablilty.
Payments for consultations can be made by cash or card.
Monday to Thursday : 9:30 – 14:00
Fridays : 9:30 – 14:00
Please call 01628 476200 for details of individual homeopaths’ or other therapists’ availability.
We take time to listen and understand thoroughly what is happening to each patient. First appointments are therefore an hour-and-a-half long, so that a full health history can be taken. This is normally followed up with hour long appointments every four to six weeks, until the patient is well. You can then come as frequently (or infrequently) as you like.
We encourage you to talk to your practitioner between appointments to report on progress, or raise any queries you may have. We are dedicated to providing an outstanding service to our patients, and it is important to us that you can feel safe in the knowledge that support is on hand at all times.
To complete our service to patients an out-of-hours homeopathic service is available. There is a nominal £10 fee charged for this service. Ring the clinic where you will be given the number and name of the practitioner on the answerphone.
We encourage you to have a supply of remedies at home. The clinic sells first aid homeopathic kits, which can be tailored to suit particular needs. Please speak to your practitioner if you would like to obtain one.
Appointments are available during the day, evenings and weekends (Saturdays only) to fit in with your commitments. You can book an appointment by contacting the practice by telephone or email. For telephone bookings, remember to leave your name and telephone number (and when you are able to receive return calls if you have to leave a message). For email bookings, please provide a telephone number and times of availability, should we need to contact you directly. The receptionist will also need to know your preferred choice of practitioner if you have one, or your preferred day of the week and time of day.
How long is my treatment likely to last? / When will I see some improvement in my symptoms? / Are my symptoms likely to recur?
These are questions you should raise with your practitioner. To give you an opportunity to do so, we encourage you to have a free Pre-Consultation appointment, as we want you to be completely happy with what we offer before you book your first appointment.
How do I contact my practitioner in between appointments?
If you have a query regarding your treatment, please contact your practitioner by phoning the clinic, where you can either leave a message with the receptionist, or on the answerphone. Please speak slowly and clearly and give your name, the name of your practitioner and your telephone number. We will try to return your call the same day if it is left before 14.00.
How do I take the remedy?
Potentised pills are best taken under the tongue. They should be allowed to dissolve for two minutes and then they may be crunched up and swallowed. Do not swallow them down with a drink, and if possible avoid eating, drinking, smoking or cleaning your teeth for five to ten minutes before or after taking the remedy.
I forgot to take my remedy at the allotted time, what should I do?
Basically, you needn’t worry. Just continue with the remedies as advised by your practitioner.
How should I store my remedies?
Somewhere cool, dry and dark, and away from strong smells and electronic devices.
