Medical Herbalist

Annabel Todd BA BSc MNIMH

BSc (Herbal Medicine) 2007

Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling 2010

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

I studied herbal medicine for five years at the University of Central Lancashire.


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.

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 Clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor.  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.
