    Somerset Homeopathy

    Homeopathy is a safe and effective method of supporting the body to heal itself and can be used for all ages including at sensitive times of life such as pregnancy, for babies and for the elderly.

     

    The homeopathic approach is holistic : it recognises that symptoms of ill-health are expressions of imbalance in the body and we use those symptoms to find what needs addressing within the person rather than treating particular diseases.

     

    The homeopathic approach is individual : people with the same ‘disease’ will express individual symptoms e.g two people with ‘hayfever’ may express different symptoms – one having a runny nose, streaming eyes and lots of sneezing, the other being blocked up with gloopy eyes. These require different homeopathic remedies. So in order to match a remedy to the person, the homeopath needs to have a complete picture of the patient, their symptoms and how they experience them.

     

  • Homeopathy for You

    Families

    Health and Wellbeing

    Homeopathy pays particular attention to familial tendencies such as allergic conditions or susceptibility to particular chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart problems or mental health issues.

    I am increasingly being consulted by people with allergies and over-sensitivity to allergens, food etc. Having suffered allergies myself, I am delighted to help.

    Often, over time, I work with different members of a family, with the benefit that the whole family’s health, energy and well-being improve. I provide support between consultations so that you know what to expect as you become more familiar with homeopathy.

    If you take care of a family, you could learn to manage day to day health issues at home and discover the wonders of homeopathy in my Homeopathy at Home course.

  • Consultations

    What happens during a consultation?

    The aim of the consultation is to enable me to understand you and the unique way in which you relate to your symptoms. Most patients find this an interesting and gentle discussion regarding personal and family medical history, your likes/dislikes, lifestyle, environment and relationships. The conversation is geared to your needs and is appropriate for children if they are the patient – play and drawings can provide lots of information! All interaction between us is confidential.

    The first consultation will take around one and a half hours with subsequent appointments taking around 45 minutes. Sometimes it is possible for me to supply a remedy immediately but mostly I post out remedies within a few days.

    I advise monthly appointments for the first few visits although this may vary according to the severity and length of your health issues. Once improvement is established, appointments will be required less often and then some patients have a consultation once or twice a year to maintain their improved health or to discuss other health issues. As part of the consultation, I set out how your treatment might progress so that we can agree this together.

    Consultation Fees

    My consultation fee is £50 per appointment. This fee covers the consultation plus time for me to work on finding the best remedy for you. Remedies are also included - unless it is a remedy bottle to be used specifically by you in which case I will advise you how to buy this from a homeopathic pharmacy. Payment can be by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer prior to the appointment.

    Home visits can be provided locally, with an additional £5 charge to cover time and travel.

    Posting remedies abroad: I am happy to do this with an additional £5 charge to cover postage, time etc.

    Family discounts can be arranged, please discuss directly with me.

     

    Acute prescriptions:

    Consultation fees cover acutes arising within 4 weeks and I encourage patients to contact me if anything arises in this time.

    I am always happy to speak with people between appointments to answer any queries they may have regarding their treatment.

    At any other time, acute prescriptions cost £15 - I try to keep the cost low to encourage use of homeopathy for acute issues by those patients not in active treatment but reasonable enough to cover my time and work in selecting the remedy.

     

    Cancelled appointments:

    Please give at least 24 hours notice if you are unable to attend for any reason. If such notice is not given, a cancellation fee of £25 may apply.

    Professional conduct:

    I am registered with the Society of Homeopaths and work to a professional code of ethics and guidelines including confidentiality. My aim is to help you regain the best level of health possible. Should you feel uncertain about any aspect of your treatment, please feel free to contact me for further information or explanation, as communication is an important part of homeopathic treatment.

    I am registered with the Data Protection Registrar and handle your data securely and in confidence. I will never pass on any of your details.

     

    Homeopathic emergencies:

    Please leave a message on my mobile: 07957 881325 and I will contact you as soon as possible.

    It is useful to have a homeopathic remedy kit for emergency use.

     

    If you cannot get hold of me and require an acute homeopathic prescription or you have an emergency, you can call The Homeopathic Helpline on 09065 343 404.

    The lines are open 9am-midnight, 7 days a week.

    Calls are charged to the caller’s telephone bill at £1.55 per minute + network access rates – calls are usually completed within 10 minutes.

     

  • Testimonials

    My home kit has been really useful and I always keep it to hand. I like the fact that you can top up the remedies you use most, without having to buy a whole kit, too. Thanks Sue!

    SarahG (Somerset)

    Having a remedy kit at University is really helpful – if only to help me get over the big nights out! I also used it for a recurrent eye problem and it saved me going to the medical centre.

    Tom (Swansea)

    Learning about Homeopathy from Sue has enabled me to become confident in prescribing for myself and although initially cautious, I have been amazed at how quickly the remedies can work.

  • About Me

    Sue Pilkington, Somerset Homeopath, BSc(Hons) Comp. Sci. RS Hom

    Many people are drawn to Homeopathy for their children’s health and I am no exception. When my son was about 2, every night at 11pm on the dot he would cough and then throw up. The GP had no idea why and we tried everything, but one dose of a homeopathic remedy called Bryonia and he didn’t throw up again – astonishing!

    Who wouldn’t want to know more after that?

    Unable to find a short evening or weekend course to learn basic Homeopathy, I enrolled at Purton House School of Homeopathy on a 1 year acute prescribing course. From day one I was hooked and stayed on for the full 4 year professional Homeopathy course.

    I love working with people to improve their health. Since graduating in 2004 I have run clinics in Wells, Street and now Wellington (gradually heading south!) although I also now work via Skype and Facetime for people living further away or abroad.

    Remember those courses that I couldn't find? I now run them!

    My Homeopathy at Home course runs over 2 evenings giving you enough information so that you can take care of your family's day to day health issues without actually becoming a homeopath (although one person who attended a course has!).

     

    Prior to Homeopathy, my early career started with an Honours Degree in Computer Science leading to work in IT technical support and recruitment. I then spent over 10 years in the NHS as a GP Practice Manager and as a freelance manager after that.

    My experience in the NHS increased my passion about fostering a return to self-reliance for acute health conditions. Using a homeopathic approach can raise our levels of health, reduce dependence on medication and alleviate the pressure on the NHS which is a precious resource that we cannot afford to lose.

     

    I take part in regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD). and in 2013 I qualified in Homeopathic Supervision which I offer to students and practitioners.
