Herbal Enthusiasts at New Vitality

The ‘Discovering Herbal Medicine’ Course was developed at the College of Phytotherapy, which was, for many years, the UK’s leading centre for the training of Medical Herbalists. The Course was ‘rescued’ by Dr Ann Walker and her husband Dr Alan Lakin, when the College suffered financial collapse in December 2004. On taking it over, they completely revised and updated the course materials.

Continuity was maintained initially for on-going students and for many years after, because Pam Bull (Course Registrar) and Deborah Sweetman (Course Tutor), who held these responsibilities at the College, continued in their positions. Pam has now retired and her place has been taken by Sylvie Marusic, but Deborah continues to act as Course Tutor.

We are all passionate about Herbal Medicine and its benefits, and are delighted to have this opportunity to introduce others to this fascinating subject.
