A gentle, holistic approach to enhance your wellbeing, suitable for the whole family.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF.
My name is Vicky Wilson and I first became interested in Homeopathy and natural medicine in 2002 as an alternative to orthodox treatments for my eczema and hayfever. I have a particular interest in treating women and young children.
In 2010, I completed four years of training and clinical experience at the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London to attain a BSc (Hons.) in Homeopathy and Licentiate (LCHE). Since then I have specialised in supporting women and young children take a more holistic approach to enhance their wellbeing.
I am a registered member of the Society of Homeopaths and abide by their code of ethics and practice.

Homeopathy focuses on you as an individual, concentrating on your specific physical and emotional symptoms, to give long lasting benefits:
Homeopathy is a well-regulated and safe form of medicine with little or no side effects.
Patients are treated as individuals, not as a collection of disease labels.
Homeopathy doesn't separate the physical, emotional and mental symptoms, but takes the view that they are all interconnected. This is what makes homeopathy a truly holistic and refined art.
It was developed over 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann (a German doctor). It is based on the principle of "like cures like", i.e. a substance that will produce symptoms in a healthy individual cures these symptoms in a sick person. The remedies are derived from plant, animal and mineral sources and are heavily diluted.
Who would benefit from homeopathy?
Homeopathy can be used with people of all ages, from babies to the elderly and both men and women (including pregnant women).
What are the most common conditions presented to me by patients?
An audit of my practice shows patients that have sought a homeopathic approach over the last 2 years have come to me with a diagnosis from their doctor of conditions including;
Recurrent ear infections;
Skin conditions, such as eczema or acne;
Stress related symptoms; and
What happens during a homeopathic consultation?
During the first consultation you will be asked questions around your presenting symptoms, as well as questions to develop and understanding of you as an individual. This can take up to 90 minutes.
Other questions include your energy levels, past medical history and family medical history to obtain a full picture. Anything you say will be treated in the strictest confidence.
This information is then used to assess you holistically, looking at the whole picture. Remedies may be prescribed following the consultation and will be sent a few days later.
A follow-up meeting is usually arranged for 4-5 weeks time to monitor your progress. This lasts around 45 minutes.
Why do you need to know my family medical history?
A family medical history can be helpful to see any trends to certain illnesses. This may indicate a susceptibility to particular types of disease.
How long does treatment take?
Much as with conventional medicine, every individual and case is different and difficult to predict.
Is homeopathy safe?
All remedies are highly diluted and are safe with no danger of addiction or toxicity. Homeopathy can be used safely during pregnancy and for children.
Can I use homeopathy at the same time as conventional medicine?
Please advise me of any regular medication at the initial consultation and update me of any new prescription. That way your treatment can be adapted to complement any existing medication.
What research supports a homeopathic approach?
Please see the information on the society of homeopaths website.
Where can I get help to fund my treatment?
