The Consultation

This is one of the clinics counselling rooms which I use for homeopathic consultations. The rooms at the clinic are clean, comfortable and private, making them ideal for healing work. A homeopathic consultation with me lasts for approximately 40 minutes.

The Presenting Complaint

The consultation begins with me asking the client a series of questions relating to their presenting complaint. This is the central issue of the case and the reason the client has sought homeopathic treatment. Therefore a significant amount of time is taken to understand this aspect of the case. To ensure that I get a sufficient understanding of the clients presenting complaint I use a system of symptom analysis known as 'CLAMS'.

Usually a client will spontaneously tell me one or two aspects of their complaint e.g. 'I have a splitting (sensation) headache (location)'. I will then use the CLAMS system to complete the symptom picture.

Treating the Whole Person

Perhaps the most important aspect of taking the case is being able to truly understand the person seeking my help. Homeopathy treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease. It is crucial that I have an understanding of how the client’s problem affects them as a whole person before I can prescribe a curative remedy. Therefore I ask the client a broad range of questions which can include any of the following:

  • Personality
  • Relationships
  • Medical history
  • Family medical history
  • Allergies
  • Dreams and sleeping patterns
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Hobbies and interests
  • Motivators and stressors
  • Fears and phobias
  • Reaction to the environment
  • General health and life style

I don’t cover all of these areas in a single 40 minute consultation. I am guided by the needs of the client and focus on the issues that are relevant at that time.

Receiving the Remedy

Often the appropriate remedy becomes obvious to me during the consultation. In which case the client receives the remedy directly after the consultation finishes. Occasionally the case requires further analysis (most frequently when I see a client for the first time) and the client receives the remedy a couple of days later.

The Next Consultation

Another appointment is usually arranged in a month’s time. This gives the remedy plenty of time to work and allows me to assess its effect on the client’s health. Sometimes follow up consultations are made more frequently depending on the individual needs of the client and the nature of their condition.
