Upcoming Herb Walks
I believe herbal medicine is the medicine of the people and this is what inspires me to run regular workshops, talks and herb walks, to help put this information back into your hands. I aim to encourage you to make your own remedies for simple ailments and also know when to contact a herbalist.
No planned dates currently. Please email to register your interest, thank you.

Herbal Allies for Menstrual Irregularities. Date TBC
As a Medical Herbalist I aim to treat the whole person and the underlying reason behind the symptoms. That can take time, and symptom relief is an important part of my treatment plans.
In this talk I will focus on heavy bleeding and pain which are major symptoms of several disorders. You will learn a select group of common herbs that can make a difference for people experiencing these symptoms. This information may provide all the help some people need, others it will give them a chance to decide whether to commit to a series of consultations.
This talk will run for approximately 45 minutes. Please email to register your interest.

Would you like an event tailored to your group?
I am constantly looking for new groups to present talks or workshops to. Please contact me if this is of interest to you. I try to make my talks interactive and/or they have an element of demonstration involved.
I have a number of talks to chose from including:
'A Herbal Home Medicine Chest'
'Introduction to Local Herbs - this can be a herb walk or herb talk with fresh herbs'
'Herbs during the wars 1660, World War I & II'
'Herbs for the digestive system'
'Herbs for the skin'
'Roman gardens and herbs'
When to consult the herbalist:
If you are taking any medications, if you have other health issues you would like to address, if you want something tailored to your individual needs or if the above remedies are not suiting you. The herbalist will take a full case history including past medical history, drug history and family history and from this will devise a regime suitable for you.
