The New Zealand Council of Homeopaths (NZCH) is a professional body that advocates for and represents professionally trained and registered homeopaths. Our members are entitled to carry the nomenclature RC.Hom after their name (meaning Registered Classical Homeopath) and have access to all the benefits of being a member.
Access to mentorship and peer support as required by individuals from our team of dedicated homeopathic mentors and supervisors. Support and assistance through complaints procedures. The NZCH investigates complaints made by the general public and supports their members in reconciling any issues that might arise.
Being part of a proactive, professional and enthusiastic community of homeopaths helps to prevent professional isolation and develops strong networks. The NZCH executive team strongly encourages peer support groups, proving groups and the sharing of information and skills with each other.
News & Research
Quarterly receipt of E News magazine, our online forum to keep you informed and updated of events both nationally and internationally. This also offers our members the opportunity to develop their professional writing by submitting articles for the readership. Advertising of seminars and courses also occurs here in this digital cornucopia of all things homeopathic.
Enhanced visibility to the public looking for homeopathic services through our website. Each member has their own page within the ‘Find a Homeopath’ search tool with the ability to be directly accessed through the website.The ability to showcase their practise through their bio with direct links to their own websites if they have one is well regarded by our members.
Insurance & Privacy
The opportunity to acquire professional statutory and public liability insurance from our partners AON Insurance. A comprehensive package that we have negotiated specifically for the needs of Homeopaths (both human and animal). The NZCH strongly recommends that all our homeopaths should protect themselves with this policy.
Access to our bi-annual conference which facilitates continuing professional development as well as the opportunity to meet your colleagues from all over New Zealand and further afield. We regularly have attendees from our counterparts in Australia and beyond.
The ability to make a difference. The NZCH welcomes new members and encourages becoming part of the executive team. With many sub-committees in operation to benefit our members, we are always grateful and welcoming of those wanting to add their experience and knowledge to our profession.
In addition, student homeopaths may become members through their period of professional clinical training and this streamlines them into full membership and all its benefits upon completion.
We also accommodate an Intern membership program for those homeopaths who are transitioning through our requirements for full registration. These are still professionally trained homeopaths but their qualifications may have been gained overseas and for those members, we offer a period of close support and mentorship to enable them to develop a successful practice in New Zealand.
