Bach Flower Consultation: method, duration, cost and booking
Edward Bach was born on September 24, 1886 in a small village in Wales. From an early age he was passionate about nature. His life was characterized by the investigation of innovative treatments, a long illness brought him closer to nature and experimentation. Dr. Edward Bach developed 38 flower remedies, useful for rebalancing the various moods, as well as a mixture of 5 flowers called Rescue, an emergency remedy, for fears and anxiety states.
According to Edward Bach, diseases represent an imbalance of our soul “vibrations”. When we move away from our balance, we disconnect from our vital energy and enter negative states of mind, then we get sick. Bach flowers, thanks to their energy, help us rebalancing these states, restoring harmony.
A Bach flower consultation is aimed at encouraging emotional balance. Not a psychology session, but an interview based on Edward Bach method, handed down for over a hundred years. Following the interview, the consultant identifies the synergy of the most appropriate Bach flowers, and describes which effects and emotional changes the person can expect.
The consultation method
There are many different methodologies. At our herbal shop we use the direct interview; in some cases we associate the method of intuitive choice, for example with children, who can hardly do a thorough self-analysis.
The method of intuitive choice was used by Edward Bach. It is truly fascinating to take the first step towards well-being and awareness. It is possible to identify, through the images of the flowers, those that among the 38 are best suited to us at that precise time. Through a bouquet of Bach Flower photographs, you will choose your favorite images instinctively, and this will be enough to start the consultation.
Another method, from our point of view more complete than the first, is the direct interview. During the interview the consultant and the person discuss the issues of interest, they try to identify the root of the problem. This method is excellent for helping the person to “pull out” what they cannot express with others, or that they cannot accept for themselves.
Edward Bach said that human emotions are layered like an onion peel. “Peeling” all layers we can reach what holds us back and prevents us from being in harmony. Facing the problem with the “energetic” support of Bach flowers, we can reach serenity and well-being, day after day.
Duration and frequency of consultations
A session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. In case the person fails to fully open up, Water Violet could be chosen to promote openness and dialogue.
Normally the same Bach Flower preparation should be taken for about 3-4 weeks, in order to evaluate changes, and eventually repeat or replace it. For this reason we recommend at least one meeting a month with the flower therapist. In every case, the person can always ask to anticipate or posticipate the meeting.
Those who use Bach Flowers must observe themselves as much as possible, this will favor a clearer consultation and a better evaluation of next steps.
Cost of Bach Flower consultations
The consultation costs € 60 per session. For those who wish, it is possible to buy a package of 5 sessions, at a cost of € 300 (€ 245.90 + VAT), which includes the Bach flower preparations for free (5 bottles of 30ml).
Bach flowers for children
There are various methods used by Bach flowers therapists: intuitive choice, interview, muscle test, etc. The choice of images is a very good method for children who are attracted to flower shapes and colors.
