Dip. Phyt. MNIMH
It was as a trainee chef in the early 1990s that I started to learn about the vital role nutrition plays in achieving good health. As my training progressed, I increasingly focused on nutritional science and catering for speciality diets. I also learnt that the herbs and spices that I routinely used in many recipes had their own medicinal effects and in 1994 I undertook a herbal studies course.
In 1996, I decided to broaden my knowledge and trained as a medical herbalist. During my course I studied orthodox medical science, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, pharmacology, clinical and differential diagnosis, nutrition and medical laboratory science.
Whilst training, I worked in a natural health clinic and shop gaining valuable experience working alongside practitioners from various complementary disciplines. I also trained with some of the leading producers of natural cosmetics and health care products in the UK.
Shortly after qualifying and establishing my own practice in 2002, I undertook further training in aromatic medicine and became a registered Foresight practitioner in pre-conceptual care for infertility. In 2008 I became a Koren Specific Technique practitioner. I was personally trained by author and educator Dr. Tedd Koren, the developer of this incredible new technique.
I hold an advanced diploma in rational emotive behaviour therapy, a type of cognitive behavioural therapy. You can read more about my approach here.
I practise in Chippenham, Bath and the South West. See the Clinics page for more details.
