The Guild is the leading professional body for qualified iridologists in the UK. It was established in 1992. Subsequently, the Secretary of State gave the Guild the right to use the term ‘International’ in its title.
If you are considering embarking on training as an Iridologist, you will find a list of accredited courses by clicking on the Courses page of this website – no other courses are accredited by the Guild. All courses require attendance/face-to-face contact with tutors or lecturers. This requirement excludes contact with tutors by phone, webinars etc. Neither the Guild nor its insurers recognise Iridology courses that are conducted only by distance/e-learning.
- Setting professional standards
The Guild strives to maintain the highest possible professional standards for clinical and naturopathic iridology. Working closely with the leading colleges and professional iridologists in the UK and abroad, the Guild has developed and agreed a common core curriculum to set minimum training standards. If you are interested in training to become an iridologist, please contact one of our list of approved colleges.
- Code of ethics and practice
All Guild members are subject to a strict professional code of conduct, ethics and practice. All full members hold appropriate professional qualifications and professional indemnity insurance.All members are fully qualified naturopathic iridologists. Most of our members are listed on the website list but if you are unable to find an Iridologist in your area, please phone us.
If you are a trainee/student or qualified Iridologist, including an Equine Iridologist, and would like to join the Guild, please click here to contact us. As a member of the General Naturopathic Council (GNC), the Guild has been working towards the establishment of a two-tier GNC register. The upper level will be for full Naturopaths and the lower level will provide a unique opportunity for already multi-qualified practitioners to become Naturopaths. Please refer to the ‘News’ page of the website for more details.
The Guild has a number of affiliated colleges all of whom run courses which abide by the Guild’s Educational Guidelines. Successful graduates are eligible to apply to join as a practitioner member of the Guild. For full course information and guidelines click here
