    [post_content] => There are a number of significant stages in the making of a homeopath but one of the most crucial is approaching for students in colleges in their final year as they contemplate their entry into practice.

At the Society we are well aware of how tough college work is for students – especially on tight budgets and often with other responsibilities and careers to manage – but this seems like a leap into the unknown. Suddenly, it isn’t about provings, remedies and patients. It is about premises, budgets and marketing.

What is it that the Society can offer to help students move into successful practice with the least possible stress? First, professional reputation is key and that is why students attend courses accredited by the Society and then become RSHoms.

Not only does it give you the credibility and professional standing associated with a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) – a Government agency that protects the public – but it means you become part of a network, a self supporting cohort contributing to, and benefiting from, being part of the Society.

Whoever you are, we aim to provide a welcoming and supportive environment that helps you build and maintain a thriving practice.

Apart from joining the register and one of Europe's largest homeopath organisations, you will have access to the publications, training, events and advice that have all been upgraded in the last few years.

There is help, advice and reference material on all the subjects you need to understand from lobbying, to tax, to GDPR, to advertising to professional conduct, plus a huge range of homeopathic material to which you can refer.

And through our knowledgeable and helpful staff, our members forum and our local meetings you will have the opportunity to learn from and support other members in the same situation as you.

If you are one of our 300 student members and have completed one of our accredited courses, moving on to registered membership is simple with automatic progress to registration.

If you trained on a course not accredited by the Society, join us via our new Independent Route, which is a straightforward and non-bureaucratic process.

A new innovation this year is From Student to Practitioner – taking the leap, a oneday postgrad workshop in London on October 26 exclusively aimed at newly-registered members, offering them advice and support on the exciting but daunting challenges facing new practitioners.

For more details on becoming an RSHom and information about the workshop (£10 including lunch) contact Liz on liz_wootliff@homeopathy-soh.org
