(FOUNDER OF TAP)
Sue Armstrong qualified from Cambridge Veterinary School, England in 1984 and worked first in Oxford and then in a partnership in Leeds for twelve years. She set up Balanced Being based in Wetherby in 2003, which was one of the first practices in the UK to offer truly integrative healthcare for animals with homeopathy as its core philosophy underpinning the individualised therapeutic approach when using all modalities including conventional mainstream veterinary medicine and surgery, homeopathy, acupuncture, laser therapy, nutraceuticals and nutritional therapy. Sue sold Balanced Being in February 2018 and now runs a referral only veterinary clinic in Boroughbridge, UK; Sue Armstrong Consultancy Ltd.
Sue studied homeopathy at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and with the Homeopathic Professionals Teaching Group (HPTG) in Oxford. She obtained VetMFHom status in 1996. After further study with Jeremy Sherr, Rajan Sankaran and others she gained her RSHom status in 2007 and currently has a human homeopathic practice in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire. Sue went through teacher training with the Homeopathic Professionals Teaching Group (HPTG) and then became a partner of HPTG and Director of Education of the British Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (BAVH). She is past president of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons (BAHVS) and The Canadian College of Animal Homeopathic Medicine (CAHM).
Sue has worked as a veterinary consultant to the raw pet food industry for many years and champions the use of biologically appropriate feeding for pet animals in the UK with the emphasis on education for the safe use of this type of feeding.
Sue lectures extensively internationally and has presented in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Switzerland and the USA. Sue has published the Little Book of Thinking Dog and The Veterinary Homeopathy Oncology Series: Cancer in Animals. She is a contributor to the books Foundations of Health and Social Care (Adams, 2007) and Canine Nutrigenomics: The New Science of Feeding Your Dog for Optimum Health (Dodds, 2015).
