Homeopathy is again gaining popularity, like other therapeutic alternative medications like herbal treatments and psychotherapy. This is why, more and more people have been joining this field. You can see, there is a wide variety of homeopathic treatments in Mississauga and some good homeopathic clinics as well. Among them http://www.homeopathicpluscentre.com/ is the most prominent one.
Before you opt for this profession, here are few things you should know:
- Why become a homeopath
Many people spend time creating a career and family and then come to a point where they feel they have unanswered questions about their life. Maybe they are at a ‘crossroads’ and they fancy a change of direction? Maybe they want to find more balance in life and want to work for themselves? Many people are drawn to studying homeopathy through positive personal experiences, and just know that it seems to make sense. Whatever your reason for taking our course, our aim is to listen fully and to provide you with sound information. This will enable you to make a well informed and good decision about your future.
- Do you know what you’re getting into?
We highly recommend that you have received homeopathic treatment from a professional homeopath, so that you understand this system of medicine from personal experience. This will give you an insight into the role of a practitioner as well as gaining empathy from the patient’s perspective. It might also be helpful to read a good introductory book to homeopathy, such as the one we suggest as a starter book.
- Do you have the required skills?
You do need to be willing to study and if you like researching and pulling together ideas, this is right up your street! Being self-motivated and organized is also pretty vital. But most important of all are general ‘life skills’ as a level of maturity is needed, and this is rarely an appropriate training for anyone who has just left school.
- Have you got the time and commitment?
To become a fully qualified professional homeopath and establish your homeopathic clinic Mississauga, takes three to four years of training. Having said this, you can simply take it as far as you wish to, and some people just want to prescribe for family and friends, in which case you can go as far as Year One or Two. You will receive a lot of input from teachers and mentors, but you must also be prepared to devote time to studying and, in later stages of the course, seeing patients. Study time varies from individual to individual and from course to course, but as a guide, the requirement is roughly equivalent to that of an Open University course, at about 15 hours per week.
- What will it cost?
Each course provider sets their own fees and we always ensure that our courses are competitively and fairly priced. In the first stages, you should allow for course fees and book lists, and later on for the addition of clinical supervision and perhaps also remedies.
