consultations

The initial consultation will take one hour.   You will bring along a completed questionnaire sent prior to the consultation, any medications that you are currently taking and any recent medical/blood test results.

People are often surprised at the opportunity they are given in a consultation to discuss in depth their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

We will discuss in detail the reasons for your appointment.  Then we will look in detail at your health history, lifestyle, general diet, emotions, sleep patterns, family health history, and all the various bodily systems.

The detailed questioning in your initial consultation will enable me to determine your constitution, to understand your health concerns and evaluate your total health.

I use Ayurvedic diagnostic tools, such as tongue and pulse examination, plus diagnostics your GP would use, such as blood pressure measurement. I will also use a special iridology torch to examine your iris.

After the consultation I will reflect upon what we have discussed and put together a bespoke herbal prescription and wellness plan.  The wellness plan will contain advice on diet, lifestyle and any necessary referrals to specialists or recommendations of other therapies that would be beneficial to you.

Your bespoke herbal prescription will be prepared personally by me in my dispensary and sent to you by post. This prescription will last for 4 weeks.

After 4 weeks I recommend a follow-up appointment to review how you are responding to the herbal medicine and if any changes to your prescription or treatment plan need to be made. This appointment will last 30 minutes.

All herbs are sourced from sustainable sources and are of the highest quality.  All herbal medicines are plant based, do not contain any animal products and have not been involved in animal testing.

Herbal medicines can be prescribed in tincture, powder, teas and creams.  The best method for you will be discussed during your consultation.

Appointments are available in Central London and Winchmore Hill, North London.

Cancellation Policy

I would appreciate 24 hours notice prior to your appointment to inform me if you would like to cancel or reschedule.  Failure to do so may mean I have to charge 50% of the full price due to costs involved.
