The initial homeopathic consultation consists of a lengthy dialogue between you and me, Leisha. which includes your medical history, details of current ailments, and all about your nature (e.g. energy level, appetite, sleep, personality, temperament, etc.).
The average consultation takes approximately 2 hours for most adults and 1-1½ hours for children. (The intake with Children will also include interviewing the parents/caregivers).
While the focus of the consultation is to find a suitable homeopathic remedy in a classical fashion, you will be given a set of lengthy questionnaires to complete.
