About me

I'm a West Sussex based fully qualified Medical Herbalist with MSc (Distinction) in Herbal Medicine, a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.

I help women in their 40s to make sense of the seemingly unconnected symptoms, creating havoc in their lives, linked with hormonal changes: like bloating and other GI symptoms, period issues, hormonal imbalances, alterations in mood, memory issues, difficulty sleeping, stress, fatigue.

I have a special training in working with intimate health, genito-urinary issues, such as UTI, hormonal and microbiome changes in the area. I practice very scientific, research-backed clinical Herbal Medicine, integrating traditional medical models with modern evidence-based herbal and nutritional medicine.

During the consultation I will gather the information related to your medical history, relevant life circumstances and review existing data from medical investigations and blood tests. Where necessary she would facilitate obtaining relevant laboratory investigations, e.g. DUTCH test (REGENERUS); GI and Female Intimate health panels (INVIVO). After an individual consultation online or in-person, I will  offer treatment regimes in a form of individual blends of herbs, natural supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice.
