Homeopathy works by stimulating the body's own natural defenses to heal itself, although gentle, the results can be powerful and long lasting. Each prescription from your homeopath is individualised based on the totality of your symptoms, which will include your physical, emotional and mental state. Homeopathic remedies can be used at the same time as other prescribed medication.
"The long term benefit of Homeopathy to the patient is that it not only alleviates the presenting symptoms but it re-establishes internal order at the deepest levels and thereby provides a lasting cure".
What Homeopathy offers your child.
Are you a parent looking for a natural option to support the health of your children?
Homeopathy has a long history of successfully supporting health during childhood. Today, it is the preferred choice of a growing number of parents who want a safe, gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive way of treating their children's health problems.
Children are quick to respond to homeopathy and it offers them a safe, non-toxic health support. In my practice I see many children with physical and emotional problems. Homeopathy can boost their immunity and wellbeing. I love working with children because they are so honest and straightforward about their struggles.
Tailor made medicine..
Each child is an individual and has their own way of seeing things and expressing themselves. Because Homeopathy treats people based on individuality, children experiencing similar symptoms may receive different remedies. For example one child may find fresh air eases their cough while another may find movement makes it worse. Some children love to play alone, some are fearful alone. We match the best remedy to the child.
What to expect - the first visit..
consultation generally takes 1 hour. Review appointments take 30-40 minutes. Children are asked
some simple, age appropriate questions about favourite foods, colours, toys
etc. Observation of your child's behaviour and play during the visit, coupled
with information from the accompanying parent will help decide the most helpful remedy for your
"Siobhán's focus always impressed me, it’s quite unique, and you can see it during a consultation. It is a lovely thing to experience. Nine years later, I still use some of the tips that she gave me. I found her very professional, especially in the way she always returned a call or text."

What happens after the first visit?
During the first visit I will select the remedy best suited to helping them. One or more Homeopathic medicines may be prescribed with instructions for taking them. Remedies come in sucrose, lactose or liquid form. You may then need to return in 4-6 weeks for a review.
How many appointments will we need?
This depends very much on the nature of the complaint and how long the problem is going on. We usually start with one visit every 4-6 weeks for the first 3 visits and then we can assess this depending how well your child responds. Many complaints clear up rapidly, long term problems usually take more time. A few well timed visits over the school year may help maintain optimum health.
