    [post_content] => Many people return from their summer holiday refreshed and with a determination to make a few changes in their lives – including finding a new, more fulfilling career.

Training to become a homeopath can be an attractive option for several reasons, such as the opportunity to become self-employed, adopt more flexible working hours, and join an ethical profession that works to improve people’s health and wellbeing.

The Society’s accredited course providers offer a range of higher education courses at Level 6 – equivalent to a first degree. Most last four years and part-time study – usually one weekend a month – is the norm so students can fit their training around an existing job or other commitments.

Homeopaths who train with a Society accredited course provider know they are on a course which maintains robust standards and prepares them thoroughly for work as a homeopath.

Kiran Grover, a practising homeopath based in a clinic in London, switched from working as a civil servant in Whitehall to retrain.

“I enjoyed my job very much . . . however I didn’t  feel that I was using the skills that I have within communication, empathy and the ‘warmer’ skills. I wanted to communicate at a one-to-one level,” she says. “When I started training in homeopathy, it was amazing. I was in a community of like-minded people into the green agenda, sustainability, clean living.”

Kiran’s fellow students were a diverse group including career changers, people returning to work after having a family as well as younger people.

“Knowing that I was going to college to be with these like-minded people energised me. We had wonderful teaching staff. To be in these great lectures and soak up all of that energy – it was great fun!”

Anyone contemplating pursuing homeopathy as a career will learn “a whole new way of looking at things and also helping people,” she adds.

Students who qualify from a Society accredited course are automatically eligible to join the Society’s Register of Homeopaths, the first to become accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Membership of the Society is free while you are studying.
