Philosophy of practice
I believe that you, the patient, are the expert in how you feel and my job is to listen carefully so that I can begin to piece together what is going on, then apply my knowledge and experience to help you. Everyone is different, so this means people need individualised bespoke treatments for best outcomes.
Wellness is more than the absence of ill-health, it is a personal journey and state of mind which must be cultivated from within. To do this, I share my knowledge and experience, offering guidelines, enabling tools and advice. Together, with some willingness and commitment, positive changes will happen!
To treat someone holistically, I need to take into account the whole picture of what makes up a person. In order words, I need to take into account what is going on physically as well as unique needs, circumstances, goals and support that are already in place. Then I can give the best advice and support to you on your journey to optimum health and a balanced lifestyle.
I use the best quality and medical-grade herbal medicines. Sustainability is also of crucial importance therefore I source my herbal medicines and supplements from reputable manufacturers who maintain consistent quality standards.
As a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Practice. This is a detailed code to ensure best practice and proper standards within the profession.
