WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A HERBAL CONSULTATION
A herbal consultation involves a taking of full case history including presenting symptoms, present medication, diet and lifestyle. An iris picture is taken to gain further understanding of the strengths & weaknesses of the patient.
The focus of the healing modality is decided by this information and with this a nutrition plan is provided together with personalised herbal formulas. These herbal formulas can be in the form of tinctures, powders, teas or capsules.
A first consultation lasts approx. 2 hours and herbs are posted or collected within a few days of the consultation. The cost of the herbs are additional to the herbal consultation fee. Outside of consultation times I put in many additional hours on a case preparing personalised reports and designing and mixing formulas in the dispensary. Prices listed for consultation & herbs take this into account. When patients follows advice & takes herbal formulas provided there is a very high success rate. People are generally asked to commit to 3 consultations to see real and lasting change. A short 15 min consultation can be booked for acute infections only. Repeat prescriptions do not require a consultation & can be ordered by phone.

“After 2 weeks treatment with herbal medicine the shoulder stiffness was very much improved and after 3 months treatment I haven’t had chronic pain like before. I also haven’t had pain episodes in my stomach during the treatment and I’ve also, as a pleasant side effect, lost 8kg in 3 months. I’m much more confident that I can get rid of the pain I’ve been going through once and for all.”
“I’m in my 3rd month of attending Siobhán. Her knowledge and overview of the body and it’s metabolism is really unbelievable, and how herbs can make such a difference. The improved results are apparent on my repeat blood tests and the signs are visible. Her interest and advise goes on between visits. Thank you Siobhán, I can only recommend that anyone with ailments that are bothering to give Siobhán a call.”
“I’ve just completed a course of herbal treatment with Siobhan and I feel amazing. I had been struggling with IBS and Rosacea long term and was beginning to loose my joy. I can honestly say I feel amazing glowing from the inside out.”
“Siobhan prepared delicious tea to help to clear my lungs (I’ve always been struggling with chest infections) and a herbal tincture to help my back (not as delicious but super powerful). I am now nearly 100%. Siobhan’s guidance and absolutely amazing herbs have improved my quality of life significantly. I’m so happy our paths crossed Siobhan – thank you!”
