What can I expect from from my first consultation?
Your first visit with Gillian could be quite lengthy. The average first visit is about one to one and a half hours. The reason for this is to gather as much information about your illness /condition, how long and how it affects you.
Gillian will also ask you about your lifestyle, interests, temperament, attitude and disposition.
For the homeopath to find the most appropriate similimum {remedy that has the best affinity to your symptoms) all this information plays a large part of the consultation.
Follow up consultations are usually shorter depending on the circumstances and progress of the patient.

How is it possible to decide on a remedy young children and babies?
When a consultation for a child or infant is involved, Gillian uses a combination of information from parent/guardian and her own observation of the child in the behaviour and reaction during the time of the consultation. For an older or more articulate child she tries to allow the child to give his/her own events of the situation then asks the parent/ guardian for their input.
