For mums to be and new mums and their babies and children
‘Dr Edward Bach was a Physician and Homeopath, who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing.
He believed, as many doctors do today, that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. When he died in 1936 he had developed a complete system of 38 flower remedies, each prepared from the flower of wild plants, trees and bushes. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms.
Today, these safe, gentle remedies are used world-wide by private individuals, medical and complementary health practitioners, psychotherapists, counsellors, dentists, vets and healers. Over the years the Bach Centre at Mount Vernon in Oxfordshire has received thousands of testimonials from patients and practitioners vouching for their effectiveness.
The purpose of the remedies is to support the patient’s fight against illness by addressing the emotional factors like depression, anxiety and trauma that are thought to impede physical healing. They can also be used preventively, at times of anxiety and stress, and are particularly helpful for many people who feel generally tired and unwell without a specific medical diagnosis.
The remedies may be taken on their own or in conjunction with medical or other treatments; they will not conflict with any medication. The remedies are completely safe, have no unwanted side effects and are non-addictive. They are gentle in action and can safely be taken by people of all ages from new-born babies to elderly people.’
Taken from “An introduction and guide to Flower Remedies” (2002) formerly The Work of Dr Edward Bach.
I have used the flower remedies myself for many years and in 2014 started to find out more about them. I started the Level 1 Bach Flower Practitioners course, and then Level 2 in 2015. In 2017 I completed the final stage, Level 3 of becoming a Bach Flower practitioner.
I have a strong interest in women’s health issues from Fertility/Pregnancy/Postnatal and beyond for new-born babies to older children.
What happens in a consultation?
Either at my home in Montpelier or at your home. I will find out what your knowledge is of the flower remedies and then fill in any gaps in your knowledge. Dr Bach was very clear that the practitioner role is to educate and help the patients, so that after two sessions they are able to choose the remedies themselves. I will ask you why you have come to see me and how you are feeling on an emotional level. I will suggest some remedies for you at the end of consultation, and explain how they will work and give you a treatment bottle with the jointly agreed remedies. You are advised to take them four times a day for the next three weeks. During the second consultation we will discuss again if you’ve noticed any changes. We will discuss the remedies that were chosen initially, and then another treatment bottle can be given with either the same remedies or new remedies. Hopefully by the end of the second session you will have enough knowledge to heal yourself.
How much is each session?
I charge £35 for up to an hour for a consultation at my home, please add £10 (if you live within a 10 mile radius of Bristol) if you would prefer the treatment in your home.
