I am an experienced herbalist and plant spirit medicine healer, a writer and a teacher. I live in North Wales UK, near the beautiful Afon Dyfrdwy – River Dee – in the Vale of Llangollen
In 1987 I began to practice therapeutic massage, then I qualified as a Medical Herbalist after a four year training, and joined the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1989. Over the years since then I have studied Reiki healing (First degree 1994, Second 1995 and Master’s in 2000), soul retrieval and shamanic healing (with Leo Rutherford and Howard Charing 1998), and Plant Spirit Medicine (with Eliot Cowan 2004).
I have found Plant Spirit Medicine to be so amazing that it now accounts for around 90% of my practice, although I still quite often give people herbal medicines to take as well, and also may incorporate other healing techniques in my work.
I am an experienced teacher of adults, having introduced many people over the years to the joys of herbal medicine, to anatomy and physiology, and to household shamanism and other forms of healing.
I am the author of two books – Holistic Anatomy (2010) and The Domestic Alchemist (2015):
