Hi, I'm Helen and have been passionate about herbal medicine since I was in my early teens. It began with a visit to a herb garden in the middle of winter - nothing was growing but the names of the plants and their use as medicines captured my imagination.....and I was hooked!!!!
I went on to train to be a Medical Herbalist and, since qualifying have practised in Edinburgh and West Yorkshire, worked with the NHS, and as Clinical Supervisor for BSc degree students of Herbal Medicine.
I like to grow herbs, and enjoy making medicines from plants growing wild in the hedgerow.
I am currently in my second year of an MSc degree in Herbal Medicine.
