I have worked in health care for over 40 years; as a theatre nurse and health visitor, and solely as a herbalist since 2000. I spent 6 years teaching herbal medicine on the Bsc course at the University of Lincoln, leaving in 2011 to work part-time here at Healing Thyme.
Herbal medicine is my preferred method of treatment for myself, my family and friends, many of whom contact me before anyone else with their health problems. I believe that herbs can provide us with the means to assist the body's natural healing mechanisms, and combine them with healthy dietary and lifestyle advice to offer my patients a truly holistic and individual service.
I grow many herbs in my own garden, and make of lot of my own medicines using plants that I have grown or harvested from the wild, picking only those which have not been subjected to chemical spraying or other pollution. I regularly meet with other herbalists to extend my knowledge and improve my understanding of this fascinating profession.
I am registered with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, the oldest and largest professional association for qualified herbalists, which sets standards of training, practice and conduct, requiring all its members to be fully insured and undertake continuing professional development on a regular basis.
I hold a clinic at Healing Thyme on a monthly basis.
