Homeopathy Questionnaire for Children


What is your child’s name?

What is your child’s date of birth?

What is your mailing address?


What are your phone numbers?


What is your Skype address?


Please answer as many of the following questions as you can in preparation for your initial consultation.  If you find this difficult to do, don’t worry about it, we will explore further during your child’s session, and I will help you tell me the story of your child’s illness.  If there is anything you feel uncomfortable discussing in front of your child, you may  write it here or e-mail it to me.


Please tell me about the genetic background of the family:  diseases of parents, grandparents and siblings.
