I have started doing drop-in sessions at Briar House Resources, attached to The Healing Clinic, York, involving quick 15 minute consultations costing £5 for minor ailments. (Normal consultation fee £50 for an hour) The drop-ins take place the 3rd Saturday of the month between 10am and 2pm. Herbs prescribed cost the same as usual, £7 for a week of tincture, £3.50 for a pot of cream.
Today was the first. Not well attended as a bit rushed and last minute with publicity but hopefully word will spread.
The idea is to be more accessible to anyone with a minor complaint who doesn’t have money or time for a full one hour consultation. Briar House Resources is a relaxing, chilled out space and I provide free herbal tea.
In the course of the quick consultation, if I think your complaint too complex to deal with in such a short time, we can make an appointment for a full length consultation which would usually be on a Tuesday, but I can be a bit more flexible now being a York resident.
Upcoming dates for Herbal Drop-Ins:
17 September, 15 October, 19 November, 17 December 2016.
