Medical Herbalist

BSc (Herbal Medicine) 2012

Diploma in Reflexology 2000 and Reiki Master 2006

I love being a herbalist and helping people to resolve even long-standing health problems gently and safely. 

II have been a practising medical herbalist since 2012 after graduating from Lincoln University with a BSc Hons in Herbal Medicine.

The course covered all the medical sciences, such as physiology, anatomy, pathology, pharmacology, diagnosis and physical examination, as well as how to use herbs as medicines.

This understanding of orthodox medicine -both treatment and diagnosis - is especially important when I'm helping people who are taking medicines prescribed by their doctor.  I need to be sure that the herbs I am giving people are safe to take alongside their pharmaceutical drugs.


Each herbal blend is unique to the individual and aims to reduce symptoms while working to resolve the root cause by addressing any imbalances within the body, mind and soul. I also provide advice on diet, exercise and relaxation as part of the consultation as they are integral to health and wellness.

I am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) which is the United Kingdom’s leading professional body representing herbal practitioners.

The organisation was first established in 1864 and has a long and illustrious history. 

By choosing an NIMH member as your herbal medicine practitioner, you can be confident of their high standards of training and professional conduct.

I am also a fully trained Reflexologist, Crystal Therapist and Reiki Master.  These additional skills mean that I can offer a wide range of help, according to what you feel you need help with and how you wish to move forward. I am always guided by you and treatment strategies are planned together.
