All women are seen by conventionally trained clinicians who specialise in complementary medicine. All the treatments provided can be used safely alongside conventional treatments.
At the initial consultation we explore the presenting problem and physical and emotional responses to it.
A full medical history is also taken, including past medical history, family history and history of other concurrent problems. This approach informs the decision to prescribe the appropriate individualised medicines.
In the course of treatment we try to address both physical and mental well-being.
General examination will be carried out where appropriate, but cervical smears and routine internal examinations are not provided in clinic.
These are available through the patient’s GP or Well Woman Clinic.
The initial consultation will take 45 minutes with follow-up appointments usually lasting 15 minutes.
As we practise and promote an integrated approach to health and medicine, patients taking conventional medication are advised to continue taking these alongside the treatment offered at the clinic as appropriate.
