"My fascination with medicine and plants began early, coming from a family of nurses and spending much of my childhood surrounded by nature. My interest in using plants for healing lead me to study aromatherapy and reflexology, followed by a BSc in herbal medicine. Studying Herbal Medicine over many years has given me a deep respect of plants and how we're able to use them as traditional, pharmacological and energetic medicines. As a medical herbalist I combine clinical health practice with plant medicine, working closely with each client and their individual treatment plan. Herbalism is a complementary and holistic practice focused on restoring function and wellbeing using our wonderful plant medicines"
