BSc. Hons. Herbal Medicine. MNIMH

Dedicated expertise

Combining my love of plants and years of accumulated scientific skills with a desire to engage with individual healthcare using herbs, I completed an Honours Degree at the the University of East London in Herbal Medicine in 2015 and am an award winning member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.


I have completed over 500 hours of clinical training and am qualified in clinical anatomy and physiology, pharmacy, clinical diagnosis, 

pathology, nutrition, immunity, botany, pharmacology and phytochemistry as well as the Materia Medica and therapeutics of Traditional Western Herbalism.


I provide a reassuring approach to healthcare with safe and effective medicinal herbs for all the family.


I have enjoyed working in the medicinal sciences for over 35 years;  being involved in pharmaceutical formulation, analytical and clinical research within industrial, medical and university environments.

I have a degree in zoology and worked in pharmacology at University for many years. I am also a qualified horticulturist and garden designer.


I run my own busy medicinal herbal clinic, dispensary and garden in Glastonbury. As a Priestess of Avalon I consider this to be part of my Priestess practice. I am also a Soul Healer, Ceremonialist and organiser with the Glastonbury Goddess Temple.

I share my love of herbs and healing in a wide variety of formats from convivial small 2 hour workshops in my dispensary to tincture and capsule making days, these will restart in 2022 depending on circumstances.


I am student advisor for Heartwood and a clinical tutor for two herbal schools and you may sometimes meet my apprentices if you come for a consultation.
