I graduated from Westmister University in 2002, then fell into teaching and have taught herbal medicine since 2004.
I started practising in London then moved up to Lincolnshire in 2007. Currently I am now a senior lecturer at Lincoln college and teach herbal medicine and nutrition on the Degree programme ( yes we still have a degree in herbal medicine). It’s a wonderful feeling seeing these students train for three years and then graduate and go out and make a success in their chosen career. I feel fortunate to meet up with some of these herbalists that I have taught and hear about how they take herbal medicine to the wider community
I also have a busy practice and see a wide range of patients, never daunted by a new challenging condition and recognising that as a herbalist, I treat people and not diseases.
I have been very successful with fertility issues and helping women sail through the menopause and also help men to feel more comfortable with the andropause.
I do see a variety of patients from emotional issues to digestive issues and have had great success. I also feel that your Gut is extremely important so always work with my patients on addressing their diet and lifestyle.
Herbal Medicine is amazing and the future is bright for herbalists. More and more people are turning to a healthier way of living and this can be the only way forward to become a healthier nation. As a Medical Herbalist, I feel I have a debt to society to teach them how to be healthier and lead a more natural life. I feel blessed and want to share my knowledge, so also run small workshops when I can.
