I have over twenty years experience working as a Medical Herbalist. In addition to on-going professional development training in Herbalism, I have taken a strong interest in Nutrition and have been teaching nutrition courses to adults and working as a Nutritional Therapist for several years.
I completed a four year BSc (Hons) Herbal Medicine at Middlesex University in 2000. I have been trained in the same diagnostic skills as orthodox doctors, but I take a holistic approach to illness.
The degree course included extensive training to a high standard in the medical sciences: pathology, diagnostic skills, pharmacology and pharmacy, as well as botany, herbal therapeutics, nutrition and clinical skills.
I have also had two years of clinical training at the Archway Clinic of Herbal Medicine in the Whittington Hospital, North London. Since qualifying in 2000 I have worked continuously seeing patients privately and gone on to teach the subjects I am most experienced in: Herbalism, Diet and Nutrition, Anatomy and Physiology.
I currently teach the nutrition module on the Heartwood professional herbal medicine three year programme, and teach one day courses in nutrition at The City Lit in Covent Garden.
As a member of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy, I am fully insured and bound by a strict code of ethics.
I am passionate about supporting patients in their path back to good health. Please feel free to telephone or email me for a no obligation chat about your health and to find out whether Herbal medicine or Nutrition would help you.
