I am fascinated by the variety of medicinal plants growing in the wild, and organize herb walks in my local area. I also give talks to groups about herbal medicine.
My main area of research is the history of herbal medicine, and ways in which traditional knowledge can be adapted for modern use. I practise mainly at Neal’s Yard in Bath, and also in Bristol, where I have my own dispensary with a wide range of plant tinctures.
I offer private consultations at Neal’s Yard in Bath, and also in Fishponds, Bristol.
I also conduct herb walks looking at local plants, and group talks.
