Herbalist in Brighton and Hove
I am a herbalist and naturopath offering consultations in Brighton and Hove. I am easily accessible from Shoreham, Worthing and other areas of East Sussex. Consultations in London may be possible at a higher cost. Please get in touch at [email protected]
if you are based outside of my local area and I will try to accommodate where possible.
I recently gave a talk on the menopause at Arches Health & Beauty in Hove with the owner, Sarah Best. Many thanks to Sarah for hosting this event and everyone who contributed to the discussion. Symptoms are so varied and I think it is helpful for people to know what others are going through. My next talk on the menopause will take place at 6.30 pm on 22nd April at Purely Pilates. Due to the current circumstances this talk has been deferred and will be re-arranged at a later date.
I have recently completed a course on the female microbiome and have read extensively on the female endocrine system and the menopause. It is clear that some women suffer terribly, often in silence, with menopausal symptoms. I am keen to open up a discussion about this and let women know what steps they might be able to take themselves to address some of these symptoms and also what naturopathic and herbal treatments are available to support them.
Contact me if you would like to know about future events.
A little about me
I worked as a solicitor in London for many years before deciding to retrain as a herbalist. The catalyst for me was a book I saw in the window of a second hand bookshop on Herbal Medicine. It captured my imagination, and the more I read the more fascinated I became. You can read about herbalism here.
My interest led to six years of study and clinical experience to qualify as a herbalist, naturopath and iridologist. I am always continuing my learning in herbalism and naturopathy. I am currently studying endobiogenic medicine to gain a greater understanding of the endocrine system and how to address imbalances in this system that contribute to many illnesses.
