Bach Flower Therapy is a talking therapy and is a form of counselling. As you express your concerns, I am able to match up your emotions with the appropriate Bach Flower Remedy to help you balance those emotions. Thereupon  your emotional conflicts are harmonised for you to  obtain and regain a state of calm, relaxation, energy and motivation toward optimum health. The Remedy is taken in droplet form on the tongue, or in hot/cold drinks or even rubbed onto pulse points and can be taken alongside conventional medicine.

At any one time we are all feeling challenged with one emotion or another and can easily become stuck in old un supporting ways. To move forward positively, we need to release those old emotional patterns that hold us back.

Free yourself up, allowing yourself  to maximize opportunities and making your life flow more smoothly. Here below is a list of the 38 flowers and their corresponding moods.  The ultimate aim is for you to learn to self-treat with my guidance. See which remedy you may need at the moment. It is not unusual to need several at any one time. For expert advice please feel free to arrange a consultation now.

Please note, your treatment bottle of Bach Flower Remedies will cost an additional £10 which will last three weeks.

The healing process

The remedy dosage is 4 drops, 4 times a day from your treatment bottle. First thing in the morning, last thing at night and two times during the day. The remedies may be taken in a variety of ways. Via the pipette directly in your mouth – avoid touching the pipette with your mouth to avoid contamination. The drops may be put in a hot or cold drink or may be applied externally by rubbing onto the lips, behind the ears or on the temples.

Each treatment bottle will last about three weeks. During this time it is a good idea to keep a simple journal jotting down your feelings using key words. You may attach a scale of 1 -10 to quantify the range of emotion experienced. In this way you will be able to see the changes in your journal over the three week period. The transition from an imbalanced state to that of a fully balanced state can be so subtle, the point at which the change occurs can be missed if not recorded in some way.

As existing emotions become balanced it is not unusual to experience a new emotion. This is perfectly normal. The body is like an onion with many layers that need peeling away. As one layer is peeled away another layer of emotion becomes exposed until the central core is reached. By this time you will have discovered and learned so much about yourself on this personal journey recognising any imbalances that can soon be corrected.

When a new emotion is experienced as part of the healing process that feels unsettling, it can be helpful to take 4 drops of rescue remedy in addition to the existing remedies. Rescue Remedy need only be taken if the new mood/emotion is perhaps a little more uncomfortable than you would like.

Whatever position you hold in life, make that commitment today and start to live the life you truly desire through the Bach Flower Remedies system. Please feel free to talk to me regarding further information or any queries you may have.

How Bach Flower Remedies were discovered

Bach Flower Remedies were discovered by Dr Bach, a Harley Street Doctor. He felt desperately disappointed with conventional medicine in that he felt it was failing to treat ill patients effectively.

Dr Bach left Conventional Medicine and threw himself into his new work of discovering the healing benefits of 38 different plants. Each of these plants balances a particular emotion or mood, is natural and can be taken by all. Bach flower essences are non toxic. If the wrong remedy type were to be taken it would have no effect at all. On the other hand the correct well matched remedy has the effect of balancing the emotions allowing the body to heal readily.

Dr Bach believed that if we hold a negative thought pattern or mood for a long time, then this will, over time manifest as a physical complaint. As a result Dr Bach successfully treated a great number of wide ranging conditions through Bach Flower therapy.

Just as importantly, Dr Bach believed it essential that people themselves learned how to tune into their moods and treat themselves accordingly with the appropriate remedies. His brief was to help empower the individual to keep well and happy through self reliance.

It is now my brief to continue his work by empowering you to be free of worry, uncertainty, aches and pains, and to live your life to the full. I offer private consultations from Rochester and also offer Zoom consultations.

Treatments for Plants

If a plant becomes diseased use Crab Apple, by adding two drops to a jug of water and spraying it regularly on a daily basis.

When re-potting a plant or moving it to a new position use Walnut. Add two drops of this remedy to the day’s supply of water.

When a plant looks limp and a looking a little sorry for itself use Willow.

Rescue remedy may be appropriate where the plant has been over watered, over scorched by the sun, or damaged in any way.
