I am a qualified Medical Herbalist (BSc Hons) and Aromatherapist (Dip. ITEC) and am passionate about helping people improve their health via natural healthcare, which is underpinned by the use of plant medicines, foods and extracts. I currently practice both herbal medicine and aromatherapy at Healing Thyme and run walks and workshops from various locations. 

Whether you chose to see me for herbal medicine or aromatherapy, I will ask you about your overall health and what you hope to gain from any treatments.  Your current health, past medical history and lifestyle all provide me with a detailed understanding of your overall constitution and health, this allows for a truly tailored and bespoke treatment, which supports you at all levels. 

I qualified as a Medical Herbalist in 2006 and Aromatherapist in 2004.  I have always been passionate about reconnecting people with the life-enhancing power of plants.  My first degree was a BSc in Botany and Zoology, obtained at Stellenbosch University, South Africa.  I then spent a number of years working in various business sectors and industries, which included the charity sector, public sector and private sector for both large corporates and small privately owned companies.  This has enriched my practice by providing me with an enhanced understanding of different industry sectors and the demands and pressures of modern day working lives.  I now have two young children and hands on experience of what it takes to juggle the demands of a family, work and a busy household! 

I garden and grow as much as I can, love getting out in nature and walking and am the founder of Bee’s Teas ( which are stocked at Healing Thyme.

Do get in touch if you wish to explore how natural healthcare might work for you.
