How can herbs help You?
Herbs are amazing multi-taskers and teachers. Rather than taking over your body and doing things for you, they are more like patient driving instructors that are gently showing your body what to do in a very supportive environment. We know they have a lot of physical effects (thank you scientists for all the research on that), but they are so much more than the individual components that have been researched. They help you to help yourself in a gentle and fascinating way.

I have given a number of talks on stress, digestion, keeping your skin healthy from within and the menopause. I hope to give more talks in the future when current restrictions are lifted.

A little about me
I worked as a solicitor in London for many years before deciding to retrain as a herbalist. The catalyst for change was a book on herbal medicine that I saw in the window of a second-hand book shop. I found it so fascinating that I decided to study herbs. Having seen firsthand how stress and lifestyle can affect health and well-being, I decided to re-focus all my attention and studies on supporting people in optimising their health with natural products. You can read about herbalism here.
I have diplomas in herbal medicine, naturopathy and iridology. I have also completed courses on the female microbiome, balancing hormones, holistic herbal evaluation and clinical strategies and holistic therapeutics for herbal mastery. I am currently studying endobiogenic medicine, alchemical herbalism and aromatherapy.
