ARTICLE 3: GUIDELINES FOR COMPLETING INTAKE FORMS & REPORTING SYMPTOMS
Researched & Written by Carol Anne Rayson, DCHM (Hons),HD (RHom.), RHN,CLASSICAL HOMEOPATH, Certified CEASE Therapist
In order to select the best-suited Remedy, I need to examine not only all the Objective & Subjective, Physiological and Psychological Symptoms which you are experiencing now, but I also must consider any acute or chronic conditions, surgeries, accidents and emotional traumas of your past. Therefore, it is essential that you fill out your Intake Form as completely and as in-depth as is possible. If you have any queries when doing so this, please contact me, or leave that Section blank and we will then discuss during our Consultation. Your First Consultation will take up to 2 hours, in order for me to obtain a complete picture of the Totality of all your symptoms. Follow-ups last approximately 30-45 minutes.

Please be assured that ALL the information you provide, both orally and written, is kept in the strictest confidence-according to the Laws which govern Homeopathic Patient Confidentiality.


Reporting Symptoms to your Homeopath, requires observation and the detailing of the important Modalities involved in individual expressions of altered states of health.

Modalities are the Symptom-Language of each individual body: the factors which make Symptoms
Better or Worse, and those factors usually differ from individual to individual.
