WHAT TO EXPECT

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY INITIAL CONSULTATION?

According to Ayurveda, all disease is caused by an imbalance of the dosha / constitution. At your initial consultation, my first priority is for you to feel relaxed and comfortable so that I can see and understand the real you and you can be open and honest. We will spend around 90 minutes, talking about you! 
Be prepared to answer questions about all areas of your life. This will help me to understand enough about you to understand the root causes of the imbalance, rather than simply focussing on treating the symptoms. I'll use a variety of diagnostic methods including observation and taking an extensive personal and medical history.  We will discuss your diet, professional life, relationships, mental health and exercise routines.
This is to enable me to identify the potential causes of imbalance, in the mind or body, so that I can provide a bespoke treatment plan that will include dietary advice, lifestyle recommendations and Ayurvedic herbal products. We will agree a Treatment Plan and I will help you to understand the cause of your dis-ease and how you can take ownership to improve your health and resolve your symptoms. Most importantly just be yourself.

Following this I will spend 3-4hrs developing unique Treatment Guidance for you.  In a few days we will meet again, so that I can talk you through this, and modify it to suit your needs. This second consultation takes about 45 minutes. 

HOW WILL YOU DIAGNOSE AND DETERMINE MY TREATMENT?

An Ayurvedic diagnosis and guidance differs from modern, Western processes. In Ayurveda the diagnosis is made at both the disease level and also the patient level. I will combine disease analysis with a deep examination of each individual. This means that your treatment is tailored to your individual needs, not generic to a disease.
The human body and mind are already equipped with the required intelligence and energy to restore balance. I will identify the cause of the imbalance and then focus on treatment that will strengthen the healthy elements inherent in every body and support the body’s self healing. This is done to restore patients to their unique balance where the three elements of body, mind and soul are aligned. Your Treatment Guidance will include lifestyle, diet and nutrition advice and herbal remedies to help restore your health.

ARE CONSULTATIONS IN PERSON OR ONLINE?

It's your choice! I have a private and  comfortable consultation room at my home in Nairn, Scottish Highlands. If you prefer, or do not live nearby we can meet via zoom. I have patients locally and online in Western Isles, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Sidney and California. If you are unsure you can go to the booking page and have a FREE Discovery Session so that we can meet via Zoom and you can find out more.

WILL I HAVE ANY SUPPORT AFTERWARDS?

Yes. As part of your Treatment you will receive a detailed, written Treatment Guidance which clearly explains the causes of your imbalance and the recommended treatment. This is a unique, holistic, 5-8 page document with  detailed information on diet and nutrition, lifestyle changes and herbal remedies. After the initial consultation, we will spend 45 minutes walking through this, to ensure you understand the approach and are happy with the speed at which you want to progress. I recommend a 30 or 60min Follow Up in 2wks (depending on complexity) to tweak your plan and ensure you are fully supported. Follow Ups of 30 or 60 mins monthly with a detailed session to fully assess progress and modify your plan as required at 3 mths. Treatment will generally last for 3-6 months depending on complexity. I provide regular recipes and information to support you and other patients via my weekly blog and also specific information for you as required. I am available to answer any questions via email at tish@highlandayurveda.com throughout your treatment.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE TREATMENT?

Herbal remedies are not included in the cost of the consultation and will be determined following your initial consultation. A basic package of 6 herbal products for about 3wks supply is approx. £65. This will vary depending on the symptoms. Treatment is generally for 3-6 mths with monthly sessions recommended to review progress and mody for 30 mins at £30. I will guide you to transition to home remedies as soon as possible and once you are free of symptoms and your balance is restored, there is no need to continue taking herbal remedies.

I AM ON LOW INCOME BUT STILL NEED HELP

I currently gift 10% of my time to provide free of charge follow up sessions for those who would be unable to afford such personalised treatment and support. Herbal remedies are at a RRP from our supplier to ensure fairness across different practioners ad cannot be discounted. If you are struggling financially, please get in touch and we can discuss payment options.
