    [post_content] => Recognising the importance of both practitioners and their patients feeling completely safe during treatment is an essential requirement of all homeopaths, says Maggie Dixon.

In an opinion on this website, Maggie, a director of the Society, describes how her safeguarding practice for children and vulnerable people has been underpinned by her NHS nursing background.

“Gaining the trust of young people by providing a safe and confidential space is essential to the case taking,” she writes.

Maggie says she addresses all aspects of homeopathic treatment including issues around confidentiality at the first consultation and that she likes to plan together with patients to discuss any concerns about personal safety.

“I add that if serious enough, I would have to share my concerns with other professionals, with or without consent.”

Society chief executive Emily Buttrum said: “The Society is here to offer support and advice for a range of safeguarding queries and to signpost members and patients to external agencies for further support and information.”
