Mani Norland is Principal at the School of Homeopathy. He is Misha Norland's eldest son and grew up with homeopathy all around him. He trained with the School, and practices from his clinic in Stroud. He develops and manages the School in conjunction with members of the core team. Other responsibilities include interviewing students, the teaching timetable, preparation of teaching materials, hiring teachers and staff, running the School clinic. In addition, he is responsible for the School brand, marketing and promotion. Mani is also the Managing Director of The School of Health, a business that manages home study courses and books.

Mani is a founding member of Homeopathy Course Providers Forum and a founding member of the 4Homeopathy (the pro homeopathy group of 11 organsations in the UK). With this group Mani has been instrumental in the re-branding of homeopathy in the UK with the development of a new logo, the findahomeopath website, celebrity campaigns and media intervention. Mani also teaches students in the 4th year about setting up in practice. In his ‘other life’ Mani worked in London as a brand and business consultant for over 10 years. He advised board level directors on business creation, vision and image. Mani is passionate about the positive promotion of homeopathy to the general public and has written many consumer facing articles on homeopathy, lectured internationally and been interviewed on BBC radio several times.

Amanda originally trained in graphic design, qualifying with an honours degree in 1990 and she enjoyed fifteen years in the creative world, growing from magazine designer, art director, interior designer to design director. Her natural ability and love of coaching and nurturing people culminated in her becoming ‘Head of Talent’ at the design consultancy 20/20, where should looked after the extensive design team’s wellbeing.

Luke Norland

Luke Norland, RSHom
Luke has a homeopathy practice in Frome and Bristol, combining this with his role as the UK coordinator for RadarOpus and his teaching work at the School of Homeopathy. He has already gained valuable experience working with the school’s provings, compiling rubrics for the new remedies; Carbo fullerenum, Passer domesticus, Fulgurite, Galium aparine, Clupea harengus & Meles meles. This grounding in the repertory and provings has become an essential facet in Luke’s process of finding a similimum for a diverse range of patients.

Janet Taylor

Janet Taylor, RSHom
As a graduate of the School of Homeopathy, Janet practices as a homeopath in Plymouth and in Cornwall where she lives. She is also a tutor on the attendance and home study programmes and a clinical supervisor for students moving into supervised practice. From her background in education she loves the fact that her role with the School brings together her homeopathy and mentoring experience. She uses a synergy of different ‘tools’ to prescribe for her clients drawing on her study at the School and continuing CPD, particularly benefitting from 3 years in a study group with Graz Baran on the Joshis’ approach to Sensation Method.


Jenny Stickland

She provide students with information and electronic versions of school documents, she also sets up meetings, organises agendas, takes minutes and circulates information after meetings.


When I embarked on this field of study, I had no idea of the profound effect it would have on my life in every regard. I have learned so much in a completely holistic sense and in so doing I have learned about myself and my own values. This course is not only about studying the fine art of homeopathy, it is about life. This course has led me to places I could never have imagined for myself, plus I have had a lot of fun in going there!

Susan Price, Graduate
Homeopathy is simple. All you have to do in your consultation is perceive something from nature in your patient. You can hear it in their story, see it in their actions, and sometimes you witness it appearing in the space between you and them. That is the remedy they need, and if it is the right one, wonderful things can occur after you give it. This extraordinary phenomena is something a homeopath can witness every day. Homeopathy not only connects you to your patient, but to nature too.
