Testimonial

"I always seemed to be suffering from viral infections and felt run down and tired. Cold sores were also a constant problem and made my life miserable. I was prescribed herbal medicine – a tincture and a course of tablets; after a few weeks I began to get my energy back and now hardly ever get infections or cold sores since taking the herbs.

Experience

I am a Medical Herbalist and gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Herbal Medicine from Middlesex University in 2008. During five years of study all the medical disciplines were covered including anatomy and physiology, clinical science, diagnostic skills and herb-drug interactions. Before graduating I worked as an Aromatherapist and am also a professional horticulturalist. With 20 years’ experience treating patients - using plant medicines to treat a variety of conditions – I tailor every herbal prescription to meet each person’s unique needs.

Professional Approach

I work with people affected by acute or chronic illness; giving patients time to explain their health issues during the initial 60-minute consultation. I take a detailed medical and lifestyle history focusing on the person and the underlying causes - not just symptoms of disease. I combine orthodox medical knowledge with my experience of using medicinal plants and supplements when considering treatment strategies - to support my patient’s and manage their health issues. I also focus on nutrition and strategies to assist people to age well.

Areas of expertise

I worked as an Aromatherapist with older people in Day Care Centres, providing calming treatments for people also living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Once I had graduated as a Medical Herbalist I developed areas of expertise and an interest in treating neurological conditions including migraine, stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression and conditions related to aging – such as high blood pressure and diminishing immune response.
