The Harbord Homeopathic Clinic, a Brookvale-based natural health clinic, will be initiating the first homeopathic Internship program in Australia, beginning in February of 2016.
“We’ve always had students come through the clinic, but this is our first intern” says Linlee Jordan.
Lorena Mattiolo joined the Harbord Clinic as an intern starting Monday, February 5th. She has been involved with the practice through her homeopathy education at Endeavour College in years past, and is very excited to participate as an intern now.
“I feel that I will benefit from being in this supportive environment, with experienced homeopaths. Even though I graduated a couple of years ago, I’ve taken this internship to build confidence and take away different approaches to go out there and treat people myself,” says Lorena.
Lorena is very interested in the journey that clients go on when they are receiving homeopathic treatment, and her corresponding journey as a practitioner. “It’s such a privilege to help people come to their own conclusions – it’s a combined effort (between the practitioner and client) for them to heal,” she says. She is also looking forward to getting a better idea of how a clinic is run – maybe to open her own in the future.
Homeopathy is growing in Australia as a complimentary medicine, accompanied by other CM’s like Naturopathy and Acupuncture. After being around for over 200 years, homeopathy is in regular use by over 200 million people worldwide.
