Flower Essence Society
The FES Practitioner Certification Program is offered as a post-course option for all participants who complete the FES Professional Course. This program is intended to add depth, documentation skills and objective professionalism to your flower essence practice. It also contributes to the important research and clinical documentation that is essential to the recognition of flower essence therapy as a valid holistic practice.
We offer two options for meeting the FES Practitioner Certification requirements.
1. Clinical Case Study option, a well-established pathway to FES Certification for many decades. With this option, you will be submitting three model case studies profiling individuals, using a structured format for documentation developed by Flower Essence Society. Be sure to read about the requirements for clinical case studies submitted for certification, which will guide you through the process. You can read summaries of sample case studies, previously submitted for certification. We also have an option for animal case studies submitted for certification, with different procedures and documentation appropriate for these cases.
2. Independent Study Option for Social Service Work: This is an independently designed program, with populations in need or with a particular therapeutic issue in a social context. To participate in this option you must prepare a detailed proposal for your research program and its documentation and submit it to the Flower Essence Society for approval. Please see full details of the Independent Study Social Service Requirement.
Your cases will be submitted through our on-line case-study procedure, which makes reporting user-friendly for all parties involved. It also allows us to readily enter your valuable research into our database. Read about the technical details for data entry with links to on-line forms.
Additional requirements for certification: Please note that in addition to the option you choose above, all candidates for certification must also submit the following:

We are pleased to provide a second level of certification for certified practitioners in the Flower Essence Society. Our goal is to move to a further level of proficiency in flower essence therapy, recognizing those certified practitioners who wish to deepen their study with FES, or who are working in their communities in an area of specialty.
This program also recognizes independent study from those practitioners who may wish to contribute to our body of research through presentations of healing work they have done in their own communities, such as social service projects using flower essence therapy. To make proposals for such study, please contact FES directly.
