Regulation

Regulated practitioners

All of the homeopathic practitioners listed on this website are healthcare professionals who have completed postgraduate training in homeopathy. This means they are regulated by their relevant professional body. For example, doctors are regulated by the General Medical Council.

In addition, practitioners are members of the Faculty of Homeopathy, the only organisation that ensures the highest standards in homeopathic training and practice specifically for doctors and other healthcare professionals.

Practitioners are required to abide by the code of conduct of their professional body. They must keep up-to-date in both their conventional and homeopathic training and practice, in order to retain their membership of the Faculty of Homeopathy.

Unregulated homeopaths

If you decide to see a homeopath who is not medically qualified, you should check that they are registered with a professional body and have insurance.
