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.

Modalities for each Homeopathic Consultation & Follow-up, noting any changes
or differences in Modalities or any new Modalities, as compared to previous
