Herbal Solutions for Stress and Anxiety
I offer face to face consultation in my clinic with adaptations to comply with COVID 19 regulations. I will continue to offer zoom and telephone consultations. You can then either collect your herbal prescription at your convenience or opt to have them posted out.
The green, vivacious medicine of herbs carries physiologically active constituents as well as the deep energy of the land.
My expertise as a herbal practitioner and dedicated healer enable me to offer you an unique pathway to your good health.
I take any emotional, social, chemical and environmental stressors that may impact the quality of your life into account, as well as making a medical diagnosis upon which I base my recommendations and prescription.
Following a comprehensive consultation, I create a synergistic herbal medicine specific for each of my patients.
Western Herbal Medicine can manage and support a wide range of health concerns including digestive, respiratory and joint problems, hormone imbalances, skin complaints and allergies.
I am especially interested in supporting people with stress, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue and am committed to supporting the wellbeing of the local community.
My onsite dispensary holds a wide palette of sustainable, quality herbs and I will actively engage you in the creation of your bespoke herbal medicine.
My practice is informed by current evidence and grounded in the holistic approach of traditional Western Herbalism. I am happy to work as part of your healthcare team.
I offer nutritional advice where appropriate and have access to a wide variety of quality nutritional supplements at affordable prices.
A first consultation will take around 90 to 120 minutes depending on the complexity of your case. A detailed history of your concerns will be taken along with a screen of your general health, diet and lifestyle. Dietary and lifestyle advice is also available and is key to your ongoing health. Follow up appointments take 30 to 60 minutes.
In discussion with you, I'll then prepare herbal tinctures, teas, capsules or creams specific for your circumstances and needs from my onsite dispensary. This generally takes around 30 minutes.
My clinic overlooks the Somerset levels with views to Glastonbury Tor providing a calm, unique environment for your consultation. I keep a medicinal herb garden where you are welcome to relax whilst your individual herbal prescription is prepared.
I runs walks, talks, practical workshops and courses from my clinic and venues around Glastonbury.

Herbal Medicine can manage and support
Traditional Western Herbalism combines the latest scientific research with traditional knowledge. I create synergistic and unique blends of carefully considered herbs for each of my patients taking into account the diagnosis and your needs in relationship to the energies and constituents of each herb. Here is an exert from my Materia Medica.
"Happy to report I'm feeling much better, in fact unrecognisable from when I met you.
Loads of energy, loads of sleep.
No muscle pains.
Feel stronger physically.
Much more able to process stressful situations.” S.G.
"I just wanted to say thanks for the herb treatment I’ve received over recent months. I finished the herbs a few weeks ago and I can see a definite improvement in my anxiety and stress levels." RS
"Thank you for taking such tender care and time today. I really appreciate it. An excellent service I will recommend." MM
From a clinical student
"It was so valuable spending time with a real herbalist,
I'm in awe of your depth of knowledge.” LC
From a weekend workshop
"Thanks again for such a wonderful weekend with Hecate's Herbs, and for your warm welcome
and hospitality. Every time I taste and smell my tincture, as well as absorbing the green medicine
of the land I'm taken back to the sacred space of divination we created together
in your dispensary and it feels magical.” RP
