The Victorian College of Classical Homeopathy

Written by Louise Barton

The Victorian College of Classical Homeopathy

VCCH was formed in 1989 by then principal Denise Carrington-Smith (original founder and member of the Australian Federation of Homeopaths). The college curriculum was developed along traditional classical lines – teaching Hahnemann, Kent, Boenninghausen, Hering, Allen, Roberts etc. Grant Bentley took over as principal and senior lecturer in 1994.

The college only taught homeopathy, unlike many other colleges in Australia which teach other modalities (naturopathy, Chinese medicine, herbalism etc). In 1999 the miasm project began and by 2001 facial features were incorporated into clinical prescribing. The work was applied in both the private and student clinics associated with the college. In 2003 Grant Bentley published his first book Appearance and Circumstance, which detailed his observations regarding miasms and facial analysis. A further book (a companion guide to Appearance and Circumstance – Homeopathic Facial Analysis) was published in 2006.

In 2008 VCCH finalized its undergraduate study program to focus solely on the development of Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA) at a post graduate level. The college holds open clinics, workshops and seminars teaching homeopathy to students and practitioners who want to learn more about Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA). The college is planning an online course in 2009.
