The Yorkshire College of Classical Homeopathy is completely independent and offers training like no other College. Our Training is intellectually challenging, engaging and fun. We promote critical and creative thinking in an environment of deep respect, inquiry, debate and understanding. We believe that simply amassing knowledge and memorizing a great number of remedies is not enough. Our students learn to really understand what Classical Homeopathy is all about, what makes people diseased and how to return them to health.
We offer a Three year professional training course in Classical Homeopathy that is structured in a logical, integrated, yet flexible manner providing progressive learning in the principles and practice of Classical Homeopathy. We also offer a three month foundation course (attendance), a home study foundation course as well as short introductory courses
We keep our classes small so that every voice is heard and that every student feels valued. We understand that each student learns at their own pace and we ensure that every student receives the very best teaching and personal guidance we can give, based on over 20 years experience of teaching and helping people to better health through Classical Homeopathy.
The YCCH teaches from only the most proven material on the art and science of homeopathy. It is from the leaders of modern classical homeopathic thinking, referring often to the teachings of Dr Paul Herscu (Analysis using Cycles and segments) and George Vithoulkas, along with the works of the ‘Old Masters’ such as Kent, Bonninghausen and especially Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, Hahnemann’s Organon of medicine underpins all our teaching and provides the foundation from which we build.
The three year professional training course is at the very heart of the YCCH. It is here that students are inspired to explore the principles and practice of Classical Homeopathy. It is a rich and dynamic training course that provides a firm foundation and opens the door to a future of fascinating discovery and meaningful work. The course is offered on a part-time basis, in order to accommodate working adults. Throughout the three years, students follow a carefully crafted yet flexible syllabus of academic and clinical study, designed to thoroughly prepare them for registration and practice.
In the first two years of training, the time is equally divided between studying the homoeopathic remedies (Materia Medica), and the principles and methods of homeopathic practice. These two areas of study form an integrated whole. The remedies are taught in their depth and range, and in the invaluable context of the relationship to other remedies. The principles and methods are taught in the inspiring context of Hahnemann’s Organon of Medicine, which students learn to use as a practical guide, enhanced and elucidated by modern sources. This develops the strength of thinking homoeopathically. First and Second year students observe and contribute in live clinic cases, learning the skill of case-taking, which takes homoeopathic thinking into the realm of practice.
In the third year, active clinical casetaking is added to the curriculum. The time is divided between clinical training and advanced application of the principles and practice of homeopathy, along with additional study of the homeopathic medicine. During this year students are encouraged and assisted to prepare their own portfolio of cases for registration with an awarding body of their choice. At the end of the third year, final assessment takes place with an optional fourth year offered to students who may need more time to complete their studies and/or portfolio of cases
Classes are normally held from September through to June. They are scheduled on one weekend a month. Individual assessment (through assignments, class participation and personal reflection) is ongoing throughout the course and tutorials are held on a regular basis.
