At your first appointment, a comprehensive medical history is taken, including about your lifestyle and diet.  Where appropriate, a physical examination is carried out, which may confirm or complement the diagnosis of your General Practitioner (GP). 

Please bring with you any prescribed medication, herbal supplements or results of any available medical exam, which assist in evaluating pharmacological interactions and contraindications, particularly if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. A suitable treatment plan is agreed with you to suit your health priorities and lifestyle choices.

Follow-up appointments may be required after a fortnight and subsequent visits may be every four, six or eight weeks, depending on your needs.  If your health is stable, you will be posted repeat prescriptions for up to two months.

Your prescription herbal medicine will consist of the best quality extracts available in terms of purity, concentration of active ingredients, knowledge of traditional use and scientific data.  You may be supplied with tablets, capsules, tinctures, fluid extracts, herbal teas, juices, distilled waters, aromatherapy essential oils or creams.

All patients who have been receiving regular treatment for every six months of full compliance may request a FREE consultation for exceptional motivational support in the form of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Results' coaching for balanced and customised health and wellbeing objectives, particularly in cases of bereavement, divorce or other important life changing experience. After completing a course of reflective counseling or analytical psycotherapy, a consultation in NLP and Results' Coaching may prove crucial in boosting self confidence.
