Consultations

2020 PLEASE NOTE UNDER CURRENT RESTRICTIONS DUE TO COVID 19 – The clinic will operate remotely.  Existing patients can order repeat prescroptions and have remote consultations.  New patiens welcome – Skype, Whats App and telephone consultations available.   Medicines dispensed with due diligence for hygiene.  Remdies can be collected or posted – currently some delays with Postal Service.

Private consultations are available by appointment, either at the clinic or I can do home visits by special arrangement for those with limited mobility.

Consultations are a collaborative process where time and space is given to you and the totality of your needs. Herbal remedies are specially tailored to your individual requirements, and appropriate advice is offered to help you resource and support your greatest asset – your well-being!

Herbs are used with all ages from the very young to old, and can be appropriate for acute to chronic conditions.  In the dispensing of your remedies, should you be on orthodox medicines, all contra-indications are addressed and where agreed with you, and if appropriate, I am happy to liaise with other health professionals, such as your G.P.
