The Bach Flower Remedies are gentle, natural and non-addicting remedies that help balance mental and emotional imbalances. The system for using them is relatively simple and straightforward. In fact, they were created by Dr. Bach specifically for people to easily learn how to identify what they need and then safely treat themselves.
There are 38 flower remedies in this system and they address the full array of mental and emotional concerns. They are gentle enough to use with children, pets, and even plants. I have used them with all of these and had great results, which is why I decided to become a practitioner!
Dr Bach intended for the Bach flowers to be folded into our daily life - if we wake up feeling tired or groggy, we can take a couple of drops of a flower remedy; if we have a headache, we reach for a flower remedy; if we are sad, we sip a flower remedy. Or, in Dr. Bach's words: "I want to make it as simple as this: I am hungry, I will go and pull a lettuce from the garden for my tea; I am frightened and ill, I will take a dose of Mimulus." In each case, the flower remedy helps us to return to our more balanced state of being. They were meant to be a gentle helper in our life. If we can bring ourselves back to balance gently, when we are feeling out of balance, then we do not carry that feeling with us throughout our day, affecting our experiences and that of others with whom we interact.
The remedies do not change who we are, they simply help address that which is interfering with, or affecting our ability to express our true, balanced, self.
Dr. Bach's background:
Dr. Bach was a trained medical doctor who had a successful Harley Street practice in London. When he started to feel disillusioned with the medical system and its limitations in healing, he became a bacteriologist and pathologist, conducting original research into vaccines. He decided that true healing needed to be gentle and found in nature, which led him to discovering and experimenting with the flower remedies. He was an experienced scientific researcher and applied these principles to his search for remedies in nature. He would first study what he could about them, and, if they met his criteria, experimented on himself to see their effects. If he was pleased with these effects, he would offer them to patients who came to him, for free, and record their effects before he approved them for wider use. Once he found how effective they were, they became the main treatments he gave to anybody who came to him.
I have been using the Bach Flower remedies since 2004, initially on myself and family, then on friends and, later, on clients. I was so impressed with their effectiveness that I studied and became a Bach Flower Registered Practitioner! I have seen the remedies effectively help children recover from grief, increase their self confidence, feel more calm in a wide range of situations, address exam anxiety and other fears, and, overcome night terrors. I have seen adults overcome all kinds of fears, decrease their levels of anxiety, become less critical of themselves and others, come to terms with past trauma, more easily adapt to new situations, strengthen their decision making abilities and self confidence, improve their level of satisfaction in life, and increase their focus. I've seen dogs overcome many fears, including their fear of thunderstorms; cats and dogs overcome past trauma and stay more calm during moves and transitions.
A Bach Flower consultation-what to expect:
A Bach Flower consultation is a collaborative process. We will discuss what you are feeling right now and the emotions and/or mindset you would like to address with the remedies. It is not a counseling session. My role, as a Bach flower expert, is to help you clarify what you are feeling and then describe the remedies so that you can decide which ones would be the best fit for your needs. Then, you will make up your own bottle of the flower remedies, based on the remedies you have identified. The bottle is included in the session price.
I do also offer a service where I will make up individualised bottles for people who have identified the flowers they need (if you wish to do this, check out the official Bach Centre website www.bachcentre.com) . This offers a more economical alternative to your buying each individual bottle yourself, especially if it is to meet a temporary need.

I started my studies in 2004 through distance education and completed the next levels at the Bach Centre in the UK becoming a Bach Flower Registered Practitioner in 2009.
