Student Testimonial

Dr Sohere Roked
"The Diploma in the Study of Integrative Medicine has altered my practice for the better. I have learned how to really listen to patients, to help them see how physical and mental wellbeing is linked, to encourage people to take responsibility for their health by taking an active role in their nutrition, weight management and in making healthier lifestyle choices."  


A message from our Patron

Hayley Mills
"I am very proud to be a patron of the Health and Wellbeing Trust. I believe that a more integrated medical system is vital. Increasingly people are turning to alternative methods when confronted with their health issues, looking for help and guidance about all the best possible options available to them. People need and deserve medical freedom and choice, and sensitive, intuitive doctors and nurses."
