SOH awards SHC re-recognition

We're Delighted! (1)SHC is delighted to be re-recognised by the Society of Homeopaths for another 5 years. This is a rigorous check on the course and the college to ensure it delivers a professional course for students. It has also been ratified by the Professional Standards Agency.

The report says “Your collaborative and collegiate approach to the education of homeopaths shines throughout your application for re-recognition.” And “This application describes the provision of a course that has sound foundations and a mature quality, despite its relatively short existence. The Salisbury team are clearly not only experienced, but totally dedicated to the education of competent, professional homeopaths.”


The end of the academic year!

What a fabulous weekend we’ve just had!  Our teachingSHC Cream tea jul 2016 compressed year culminated in our annual July cream tea, held in our beautiful central-Salisbury garden, where we got to say goodbye to our wonderful 4th years as their last teaching weekend came to an end.  They have worked hard and learned a huge amount about homeopathy, themselves and each other over the many teaching weekends spent together. They have a little more to do to finish off before they graduate next year.  We’re looking forward to the graduation and seeing them again soon at our busy programme of beginner and advanced events for both homeopaths and non-homeopaths which start again in September (see our talks page to register for our email list)

We celebrated our last weekend with a ‘Desert Island Discs’ afternoon where all years worked together to present chosen remedies with great humour and passion. There were songs and even film clips to represent each remedy with some great acting from students being memorably in character as different remedies! A busy weekend with an Open Day and mini-SHC lecture Jul 2016introductory homeopathy course too.

A full programme for next year is already on its way. We start in September with ‘fours’ – our four year licentiate course and our four day ‘Homeopathy at Home’ Course suitable for beginners and those with some knowledge of homeopathy!  We will also be bringing back our one day ‘Introduction to Homeopathy Course’ soon.

Continuing interest prompts extra Open Day

An extra Open Day has been scheduled as interest continues to come in. Feedback from the last one included that there was some surprise that the welcome was so warm and that it didn’t include a pushy sales. To us, this is normal. We are passionate about homeopathy, enjoy the smallness of our college which allows us all to know each other, and genuinely want to help people make the right decision for them. Why not come along?
