FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES HOLISTIC MEAN?
Holistic means looking a something in the whole, everything that is going on in a person's life. I look at your whole lifestyle, current stresses and both your physical and your emotional health. Holistic medicine will also tackle the underlying causes not just control the symptoms.
WHAT DOES COMPLEMENTARY MEAN ?
Complementary means along side – so whatever you may be doing to help yourself already, or if you are taking medication, I can work along side that.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST?
Usually an hour, however sometimes it can be a little longer depending on how the session is going.
IS WHAT I TELL YOU CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes the only time I would have to break confidentiality would be if I thought you would hurt yourself or someone else, I believed you had been or were going o be involved in an act of terrorism or I received a court order. I have a confidentiality agreement with all my clients, which we both sign.
