I graduated in 2002 with an honours degree in phytotherapy (herbal medicine). I have a private practice in Oakham, Rutland. Where I offer face to face consultations by appointment only.
Most of my clients are suffering from chronic diseases or conditions. I work with my clients to discover the underlying root causes of their health concerns and I specialise in offering them personalised treatment protocols with step by step instructions.
During our first consultation I will explain how and why the underlying factors may contribute to my client's ill health. Then we will discuss the possible solutions I offer.
As a qualified medical herbalist I can provide individually formulated herbal prescriptions that treat you, not just your symptoms. Your herbal prescription is designed to treat the underlying causes and promote your body's own healing processes. Your body knows how to heal, it just needs a little help.
