Homeopathy Training Course
Outline Curriculum

The orthodox western medical model contains many limited and false assumptions about what constitutes health, disease and cure, and this is why many people are dissatisfied with the results that it gives. For example, it is assumed that a disease can be treated separately from the person suffering; that mind, emotions and the physical body function independently of one another; that bacteria and viruses cause disease rather than contribute to it; that removal of a diseased organ or tissue constitutes a cure of the underlying disorder.

Since ancient times there has existed a knowledge of health and healing based on what is today termed a holistic approach. This means recognising that humans are much more than flesh and blood, and that there are dimensions to healing that reach beyond the physical.

Our training course is designed to enable you to see and to think holistically, so that you will understand how and why alternative therapies are effective where orthodox medicine fails. This means taking into account the mental, emotional and spiritual factors involved as well as the chemical and physiological. It also means learning to become aware of the human energy system, and the ways in which it may be disturbed to produce disease, and restored to produce health.

"There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind, and inner happiness."
Edward Bach

Homœopathic & Other Remedies
Homœopathy is taught as the primary, but by no means the only technique to enhance your abilities to heal. The main reasons for this is that it is inherently safe to use, widely available, extraordinarily effective and endlessly fascinating to learn. It is effective in treating most health problems be they physical, mental or emotional. Homœopathic remedies are carefully matched to the individual being treated in order to stimulate the body to heal itself and to restore the whole person to a state of well-being.

Herbal medicines have been used in every age and culture and are still the most widely used medicines on the planet. We will teach you how to use a selection of herbal tinctures that are readily obtainable, highly effective and entirely safe.

Flower essences were first developed in the U.K. in the 1930's by Dr. Edward Bach, whose vision was to create a simple, gentle method of healing that anyone could use without needing a complicated medical training.

The flower essences developed by Dr. Bach are now used world-wide to treat mental and emotional imbalances. We will teach you how to use these and also the newer flower essences that have been discovered in recent years. These include the Australian Bush Flower Essences developed by Ian White, and the Bailey Flower Essences developed by Dr. Arthur Bailey in Yorkshire. We have found the flower essences to be powerfully effective as tools for psychological and emotional healing and growth, and they work safely and gently without toxic side-effects.

Throughout the course we aim to strike a balance between providing you with information and skills (the outer work), and facilitating your own development and growth as a healer and as a person (the inner work). Below is an outline of the main areas that will be covered on the Course. Some components may vary to suit the needs of the group, and as the course itself continues to grow and evolve.

Upon successful completion of the course, students are awarded a Licentiateship of The Lakeland College (L.L.C.Hom). We have no formal examinations, but students are assessed on a learning journal which they maintain over their time on our course. Group and individual feedback sessions also form part of our ongoing assessment. We do not set compulsory tasks between college weekends, but have an expectation that students will read, persue their own areas of interest, and maintain their learning journal. Between college weekends students are expected to attend a monthly tutorial group.

Those students who fulfill additional criteria may be awarded our practitioner qualification, Membership of The Lakeland College (M.L.C.Hom). This requires the completion of at least one hundred supervised clinical hours; the submission of five detailed cases which have at least two follow up visits; and a satisfactory personal tutors' report.

The Lakeland College is an approved college with the United Kingdom Homœopathic Medical Association. This means that on completion of our course students may apply to register with this national registering body. We are also an active participant in the process of creating National Occupational Standards for homeopathy within the U.K.
