Juniper provides natural health solutions so you can achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Furthermore, by promoting herbal medicine and the healing power of nature to the local community, I aim to increase our connection with the natural world.

I grew up with a love of nature and a feeling that our relationship with it has become obscured through our busy, modern lifestyles. I want to re-establish that connection and inspire others to develop a kinship with nature so that they can appreciate and learn to honour it’s wisdom. Herbal medicine provides me with this opportunity and is as much about re-tuning to the natural world as it is about healing illness.

Plants speak their gentle healing ways and connect with our bodies both physically and spiritually - they provide soul and heart connection.

I graduated from the College of Naturopathic Medicine as a Herbalist and Naturopath in 2015 and I’m currently completing my diploma in Iridology. I am a registered member of the Association of Master Herbalists and the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners.

 
 

 
 

What does a Herbalist do?

As well as having a detailed knowledge of human anatomy, physiology and pathology a herbalist also knows about a plant botany and pharmacology, how to extract the medicinal constituents from plants and create balanced, synergistic formulations. Herbalists often draw on a variety of traditions, treating mind, body and emotions.

After an in-depth initial consultation where many questions are asked about past and current health as well as tongue, pulse and iris examinations, a herbal prescription is dispensed and a treatment plan formulated. Remedies may consist of tinctures (an alcoholic preparation), creams, teas, powders, ointments and more (see the Consultation page for further information).

I use only the highest quality herbs from reputable sources where strength, purity and sustainability are carefully monitored. Herbalism is so much more than just replacing a pharmaceutical drug for a herb, it’s about more than treating an illness, my aim is to help you to achieve vibrant health. I aim to be an empathic and non-judgemental practitioner so we can really get to the heart of your condition.
