Naturopath

Job Profile Image

Naturopaths believe that the body has the power to heal itself, and that illness can be treated without using drugs or surgery. They look at the body as a whole when prescribing treatment to their patients, taking into account their general health, diet, psychological condition and lifestyle.

The Work

You could be:

Pay

Most naturopaths are self-employed or work on a freelance basis so their earnings will vary. They normally charge a sessional rate of £50 up to £80 for each initial one-hour session and up to £45 to £55 for half-hour follow-up session. Naturopaths who have established a successful reputation sometimes charge more.
