The course has made a HUGE difference in my life! I never looked back and 4 years later I had my practitioner’s diploma and now I work in a clinic part time. I love it all so much that I spend a lot of my free time writing about homeopathy whenever I can.

David Feakes on the Homeopathy Course

I took an interesting route into homeopathy - although I was already a nurse and now work in adult and child protection. I was working full time and decided to do a Master’s degree in health and social care and then I got a place at the Interfaith Seminary for the 2 year course. At that point I met someone who said they thought I should be a homeopath and so I looked into it carefully and also had homeopathic treatment myself which made me feel well for the first time since I had chemotherapy as a child of 4 years old. I discovered your home-study course which suited me really well as it is flexible. Also, because of the nature of the learning and philosophy in the course, it allowed me to develop as a person. Because I travel a lot with my work I didn’t want to spend time travelling to-and-fro a college at weekends, so the home study course suited me perfectly. And so I never looked back and 4 years later I had my practitioner’s diploma and now I work in a clinic part time. I love it all so much that I spend a lot of my free time writing about homeopathy whenever I can. I absolutely loved every moment of the course and I knew I was in it long term. I attended 2 international summer schools which were wonderful and I did lots of CPD and sitting-in to get the best possible experience. A true test of homeopathy occurred a couple of years ago when I came home early and discovered my partner had all the signs of a heart attack. I managed to give him Carbo veg - the corpse reviver - and got him to hospital. Later we discovered that one of the coronary arteries was 99% occluded. I believe the intervention with Carbo veg saved his life so that he could be operated on and have a stent inserted. We always take that remedy with us on holiday now!

I enjoyed everything about the course content but especially the in-depth case analysis using the Four Elements. For me the real light bulb moment was doing the ‘Pathology & Disease course for Homeopaths’ which tied all the homeopathy learning together and allowed me to switch from being in the mind-set of a nurse to being a homeopath. I had an external supervisor for my own cases and that was also a wonderful experience and I expanded my knowledge enormously with practice.

The course has made a HUGE difference in my life! Yes. Big Time! I also find now that it is very useful in my day job with some patients who use homeopathy and visit with the list of remedies they have been prescribed by their homeopath. Another important thing I learned from experiencing homeopathy was that it is OK to cry! When I had Hodgkin’s lymphoma at 4 years old we were told not to cry but to wave to our parents and smile when we said goodbye to them after visiting hours at the children's hospital and now I know the enormous importance of being able to release true emotions and feelings.

I loved holding the course file with its School logo and its little ribbon tie as well as having all the text books. They are somehow something wonderful to hold and keep - and be able to refer to when I need to. I always had very useful and supportive interaction with my tutors and I really felt that my tutor brought out my creative side. Historically I have had a very academic approach to learning and to be able to submit answers in more creative ways such as poetry was wonderful.

So if you are thinking of doing this course I would definitely encourage you to set off on your own self-learning journey - especially if you are sceptical about homeopathy or doing allopathic work. You will be encouraged to be the best homeopath you can and get great support from the tutors and supervisors!
