I’ve been interested in herbs and holistic medicine for nearly as long as I can remember. I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to study Tibetan Medicine between 1994 and 1998 with Professor Khenpo Troru Tsenum at Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Scotland. After that I undertook a Diploma in Botano-Therapy with the International Register of Consultant Herbalists (IRCH) which was at that time based in Swansea. I studied with the IRCH for 6 years, graduating and starting my practice in 2006. It is my dream come true to be a full time medical herbalist and I am passionate about helping people grasp life and live it to the full!
I spend much of my ‘spare time’ foraging for wild medicines, growing a range of medicinal plants and using them to make my own medicines and herbal products. Probably 75% of my extensive herbal dispensary is made with locally sourced plants. I am proud to be a member of the Unified Register of Herbal Practitioners.
