The below FAQ’s are for those enquiring about booking or having made a booking.
Thanks for booking a consultation with me. This document aims to answer FAQ’s.
All consultations in October will be remote, via zoom or phone. This may change in the following months, and you will be informed by email should there be any changes. Upon booking you will be sent a zoom and google calendar link.
The consultation takes 60 minutes. Prior to the consultation you are required to fill in this health questionnaire: https://forms.gle/m4ZzUrSbbAxBNd9S7.
The cost of the consultation is £80.
This is a single payment and covers ONLY this consultation, nothing else is included.
You can have ONLY a consultation (you get a lot just out of that time to process all of your health information under my guidance/facilitation), otherwise it will be assumed that a herbal prescription will follow the consultation.
All patients are required to have a follow up appointment and they are chargeable at the following cost: 60 minutes £80, 30 minutes £50.
Any other future consultations bear their own cost and are charged at the same rates. I charge by time so a first consult is the same cost as any subsequent 60 minute consultation.
The cost of your herbs is separate and typically costs about £40/month. You will pay for your herbs electronically via PayPal or BACS after you have been emailed an invoice.
Just to reiterate: THE CONSULTATION FEE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE COST OF YOUR HERBAL MEDICINE OR ANY OTHER FUTURE CONSULTATION.
During the consultation we will discuss your main health issues, as well as your whole health – how you got to where you are now and also where you would like to be, in terms of your health.
The aim of the consultation is to get a broad overview of who you are and what’s going on. I will consider your whole self. I will also help you to understand what is happening and how things are connected.
I am passionate about health autonomy and body sovereignty and I can help you have these through a collaborative and educational relationship between patient and practitioner.
At the end of the consultation we will agree on a suitable date and time to have a follow up consultation. Your follow up consultation will be 3-4 weeks following your first consultation.
Following the consultation your medicine will be prescribed by me, based on what you told me and the 3 clear health goals YOU will set during the consultation.
Medicines are dispensed weekly, on a Wednesday and will be sent to you via courier. Your medicine should be with you within 7 days (apart from those living outside the UK).
All medicines are clearly labelled with instructions so you can begin them immediately, following the instructions on the labels.
Within 7 days following your consultation I will email you with feedback and verification of what you’re taking and how to take it. I will also provide you with clear recommendations on diet and supplements, and with links on where to buy these from.
How many follow up consultations you have will be discussed and agreed to between us as we go along. Typical minimum length of treatment is 3-6 months but could be longer. Again, this will be discussed and agreed, depending on how you respond to treatment, what you want and how much support you need. It may also depend on your financial circumstances and I encourage transparency around this to make the treatment work for you, long-term.
– If you have had any medical investigations or biochemical testing carried out and have a hard copy of the results, I may request a copy. I am trained to interpret biochemical test results and they can provide another form of information about what’s going on in your body
– I may recommend you invest in specific private biochemical testing if you cannot get that through your GP. I work with a private biochemical testing company called Genova Diagnostics, that provide an extensive range of diagnostics. This comes at your own cost and is not included in my fee or cost of herbs. It is entirely optional.
I have a strict 48hr cancellation (except for personal/family illness or emergencies).
Consultations are chargeable at the FULL FEE should you fail to notify me within 48 hours (unless an emergency/family illness).
You are most welcome to reschedule an advance booking by getting in touch with me – please email us to rearrange at firstname.lastname@example.org.
