Mary Wyatt - Chair

Mary is Course Director of the Southern College of Homeopathy (SCOH), including the Iceland School. She started SCOH in 2009, and the Iceland School in 2016, because she is passionate about homeopathy and wanted to be instrumental in helping others to practice homeopathy in a professional and practical way. She is committed to bringing the very best and inspiring tutors to the colleges who have a diverse range of skills and knowledge who can help the students to develop their own practice and become competent and confident prescribers. 

 

Mary has been a trustee of the Homeopathy Action Trust since 2016, and became Chair in 2023. She is on the panel of 4Homeopathy, and a member and Chair of Homeopathy Training (HT). She was a panel member in QAVS, the HT Quality and validation scheme, which merged with the Society of Homeopaths (SoH) accreditation scheme to become the Institute of Homeopathic Accreditation (IHA).  

 

Mary has qualified in Homeopathy, Homeopathic Biopuncture, and Mesotherapy, and she has successful and busy practices in Surrey and Tunbridge Wells, as well as running student clinics for the college. She is also one of the co-founders of Homeopaths Support refugees, working in the refugee camps in Northern France, and beyond. 

 

Before becoming a homeopath, Mary worked within sales and marketing, and had her own recruitment business, so has first-hand knowledge of setting up and marketing, networking and promoting small businesses.

Kate has an extensive background in complementary therapies including Reflexology, Holistic massage, Reiki, Chakra work and Acupuncture, and is passionate about helping all who are interested in Homeopathy to access this amazing medicine. She wants to support students and newly qualified graduates, through HAT, to be the best they can be, so they can be part of the move towards a progressive natural medicine that changes lives for the better.  

 

Kate’s interest in homeopathy started way back in her early 20’s when she started using it both with her family and animals.
