During the homeopathic consultation I will take time to listen carefully to everything you have to say. I will aim at understanding the causes of your illness, thereby not treating just your symptoms but also addressing the root of the problem.
A homeopath asks many questions, not only about the symptoms which are bothering you but also about your reaction to them, as well as general health and lifestyle.
How you are affected by environmental factors like temperature and weather, the kinds of food that you like or dislike, your moods and feelings - all these will help to establish a complete picture of you as a person. On the basis of this picture the appropriate remedy can then be selected for you.
The initial consultation will last about 1.5 hours, follow-up consultations are usually shorter.
Like any other health treatment, homeopathic treatment is a process. You will be given a follow-up appointment approx. one month after your initial consultation to assess your response to the treatment. Further appointments (usually 1-2 months apart) may be scheduled for you, depending on your illness or condition. Naturally, ailments that have persisted for a long time will take longer to resolve than recent ailments, which tend to resolve more quickly.
My wish as your homeopath is to support you during times of illness or crisis until you have reached a state of well-being again.
Skype consultations are available for those living abroad or too far away.
I went to Gerti as I was desperate to try to cure my Urticaria which I had developed about a year after my father died. I had also experienced a trauma which I had definitely not dealt with. I knew that the Urticaria was a result of the trauma I'd experienced as confirmed by my G.P. I was not keen on going down the route of relying on very strong antihistamines as I knew they did not deal with the underlying symptoms... Gerti was incredibly sensitive, kind and empathetic in her approach. Her methods connect the dots and you start to make sense of why you feel as you do. The treatment had a dramatic effect on both my emotional and physical well-being. I'm delighted to say that I have not had any symptoms of Urticaria and my general health has improved greatly since. I feel much happier in myself and have never felt better.
