Our Members

Each of the 1200 registered members of the Society of Homeopaths has an individual story to tell, a story about illness, and a journey to health – a life-changing inspiration that led them to train as homeopathic practitioners.

For most, it was either their own ill health or that of someone close that led them to try homeopathy, which led to a growing interest and eventually a desire to train as a homeopath, often giving up other careers to do so.

Although our members come from all walks of life, with a wide variety of professional backgrounds and experience, what they share is a passion for homeopathy and a commitment to their patients that they will do their very best to help them regain good health.

What follows is a glimpse of some of our members so that you might gain a little understanding of who we are and where we have come from.

Previous careers of our members featured here are : nurse, solicitor and journalist.
