fbpx Consultations : Allan Pollock

“[Homeopathy] is a practice that will help patients who wish to understand and work through their illnesses to a deeper and subtler level, leading to better health for themselves, our environment and our future.”

Dr David Owen (Principles and Practice of Homeopathy, 2015 Singing Dragon)

The Consultation

The initial consultation lasts around one and a half hours. It can be in-person or online.

In addition to your reason for consulting me, I will ask about your medical history and how life has treated you. This is key to successful homeopathic prescribing. 

A diagnosis from your doctor or specialist provides much valuable information so please seek this. However, to the homeopath this is not your whole story. 

Usually, after the consultation I will take a little time for reflection before prescribing. 

Homeopathy in practice is a little like a game of chess. A well selected remedy (medicine) should alter your symptom picture and guide the next prescription.  

For conditions that are long standing, It will take time for the full picture to emerge. Please allow for at least two follow-up appointments. These are usually of 45-60 minutes duration and typically at an interval of 4-6 weeks. 

A single consultation is not a good use of your hard-earned money.

Gradually, you should see a return to harmony and well-being. This takes some time, as a rule-of-thumb perhaps one third of the duration of your suffering

I will work with you in an honest and non-judgemental manner. My task is to understand the whole person you are, and not just your illness.  I want to hear your story.

All that you share is held in strict confidence and in accordance with my privacy policy.

The Cost

Consultations cost £60 (initial) and £40 (follow-up) to include subsequent analysis and feedback.

Where remedies ordered and sent by post from the homeopathic pharmacy, a small additional charge may apply (around £10-£12). The cost would be less if I have the remedy in stock.

First Steps

Prior to any first consultation, please book a 30-minute discovery call. This is free of charge. This short call allows me to understand your needs, and advise on the suitablility of homeopathy for your condition. It is also an opportunity for you to meet me (WhatsApp or other video option is helpful but not essential).

GP Prescribed Medicines

Ethically, I cannot alter any prescription from your GP or another healthcare professional (e.g. GP). This is solely a matter between yourself and the prescriber.
