Back to School – Autumn Blog from our Principal, Annie Batchelor

Is it me or does the new term come around earlier each year?  For those of us with little ones starting nursery or Primary School, or older children going ‘up to big school’ this time of year is full of expectation and anticipation.  At SHC we are sharing your feelings as we prepare for our new academic year and all our activities planned for 2017/18.

As Autumn approaches the smells in the air change; the light begins to fade as sunset creeps in earlier each day.   These seasonal reminders of change are music to a homeopath’s ear.  It is the seasons that beg us to yield to change.  We might still long for lazy beach days, or mornings without the alarm but sure as eggs are laid the time is here to start again.

The emotional flow in Autumn can sometimes catch us out, as we drop off the kids at school with that well known mix of relief and regret.  The gardeners among us are busy gathering in the harvest, tut tutting over a poor crop or a glut of beans.  All the while knowing that as soon as we get used to wearing socks and jumpers we will delight in frosty mornings again.

So what has all this to do with homeopathy?  Simply put we practice the gentle art of supporting reactions to change.  Some children relish going back to school, some don’t.  Some undergraduates, accustomed to the easy living at home, haver over their courses and flat and friends.  New terms also herald a raft of new inoculations for some that bring anxiety and dread.  Many a parent will contact me this week and this month with a lump in their throat as the drift to school and university continues.  Some of us deal well with parting and separation and some don’t.  Homeopathy offers a subtle and gentle tool for helping us over the humps in the road.  Having emotions is great and it’s normal, but occasionally we need help as the partings resonate with a painful memory that we simply cannot shift.

Studying homeopathy  at SHC ,whether to become a professional or to enjoy using homeopathy at home with a short course, gives you an understanding of human nature and suffering.  Being able to put experiences into an individual’s context and see how you can help is a key to developing your homeopathic thinking.

Anything is possible!

Guided by experienced professionals you will learn how our body and mind works, what’s normal and what’s an important symptom that needs attention.  We offer an integrated view of all things human and a holistic approach to health and illness.  Helping someone through a difficult new term can be to avoid getting sick later. So a little help at the beginning of a new season can help us ‘prime the pump’ as the demands of the week increases and we all adapt to the end of the year, which as we all know is really the beginning!

We would love to meet you! Do browse our website to find out more.
