Supervision is a key part of the final years of our homeopathy courses. It is essential to becoming a competent, confident and compassionate homeopath.
During the later half of the Practitioner Diploma course you will choose a supervsior to work with from our Supervison Network. All of our supervisors have had supervison training and are fully trained homeopaths. They work alongside you during your 18 months case receiving under supervision. You will discuss all aspects of your cases and practice with them and they will help you to develop your competence as a homeopath as well as ensure your prescriptions. Supervision is a wonderful and rewarding stage of development where you will learn to take flight as a homeopath. We were one of the first to recognise and develop supervision as a critical part of the course.
The aim is to complete at least ten cases with two follow-ups each over a period of 18 months and during this time you work closely with your supervising practitioner. While you are under clinical supervision you discuss each case-taking with your supervisor before prescribing an agreed remedy for your patient. Together, you will undertake a thorough and progressive evaluation of your skills, an important part of which will be exercising your self-reflective muscle as you learn about case-taking and about your developing skills in case management. These cases, their follow-ups and ongoing prescriptions, will be assessed regularly and then again as a complete case portfolio at the end of the period.
Supervision is an incredible experience where you learn to be a homeopath with the support of your supervisor and the school. So by the time you are ready to graduate you will have already started your practice and have patients!
