Specialisms

My specialism is women and their health: The beauty and complexity of the female’s physical journey through life.

The effect of hormones in the body, lie at the heart of many presentations I see in clinic. I support women in understanding the interplay of hormones at different phases of their life and their relationship to stress.

I help women to feel how they want to feel.

Hormones

Do you feel tired and depressed? Do you have skin irritations and aches and pains? Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you have unwanted hair growth or hair loss or are putting on too much weight? If so then hormones may well be at the heart of it.

Hormones can affect ‘how we feel,’ but did you know, ‘how we feel’ can affect our hormones?

Herbal therapy can help to bring your hormones into balance by providing herbal remedies and the space to talk leaving you with freedom from pain and irritations, improved sleep and more energy and motivation.

Under the trained guidance of a medical herbalist certain herbs can also work safely alongside orthodox medication for diabetes and thyroid problems to support your overall health.

Menopause

Menopause can be a disorienting time bringing with it debilitating symptoms such as moodswings, hot flushes, irregular periods, vaginal dryness, aches and pains and weight gain. It can come at a time when social changes, such as children becoming more independent or leaving home, can be devastating and leave us feeling as though the rug has been pulled out from underneath our feet.
But the menopause does not have to be like this. The menopause can be a time of positive transition, free of symptoms. It can be a time of change and personal development with increased energy and clarity of purpose and a time for coming home to yourself. This is your journey. Come and explore in a safe and healing space, what the menopause could mean for you.

Peri-Menopause

This is the time in your life where we are approaching the menopause. This can happen at different times in women’s lives. You may find that your periods are changing or you are experiencing mood swings and more tiredness. You may still be wanting to try for a baby but these symptoms are making it more difficult for you to conceive. It may coincide with other physical issues occurring such as digestive upset, skin outbreaks, headaches etc.

These are all signs that the hormones are starting to change. However at this stage of your hormonal journey hormones can be regulated. If you are burning on all cylinders, you may need to address how you are using your energy. You may already know that there are changes you want to make but don’t know how. Don’t take your mood swings for granted. You don’t have to feel exhausted. It’s also not too late to have a baby if this is what you want.

Fertility

Is it taking you a long time to conceive with no medical reason to show for it? If so you are not alone.

Fertility is a very delicate balance and the smallest of changes can help improve your fertility. With herbal therapy this is done through investigating all the possible elements that could be affecting your fertility and making appropriate changes to your diet, exercise, lifestyle, and of course appropriate use of herbs and supplements to optimize your chances for conception.

Dealing with the anguish and stress of trying for a baby is also very difficult and working with herbal therapy will offer the support and space you need to deal with this.

Post Natal and Motherhood

Being a mother myself and having my children later in life, I know some of the difficulties of both recovering physically and bringing up young children.

Often our immune and hormonal systems take some time to recover after child birth. There may be some physical and emotional trauma left behind and sleep deprivation can have a big impact, making us feel emotionally volatile and physical rundown and more prone to infections.

Herbal therapy can help to regulate the hormonal system and ease the stress and emotional strain that child birth, and later child rearing can bring. Bringing up children can be challenging and confrontational. I provide a safe and nurturing space to talk about this time of life, bring healing using herbs that sooth and tone, support your immune system and most importantly allow you the emotional space to enjoy this special time of your life.

Skin

Skin irritation can be very distressing. It can affect the quality of your life, disrupt sleep and can make us self-conscious. However the skin also provides us with a lot of information about what is going on in the body and can provide insight into your overall health.

If the skin is showing symptoms then this tells us that the other systems in the body are also under-stress. Being a herbalist is like being a detective and together we can work out what is the underlying cause of your skin complaint. Being free of skin complaints that have dominated your life can be hugely liberating and what’s more shows that the whole body is working in balance and with greater vitality.

Immunity

If you are experiencing recurring infections or allergies then it suggests that your immune system is under stress.

You may not even be able to remember what life was like without these symptoms.

Your immune system is affected by all of the other systems in the body including gut health, your nervous system and the hormones. In fact improvement of your immune system and your bodies capacity to protect itself and keep itself healthy is the by product of balancing your whole life with the support of herbal therapy.

You will be amazed at what life can be like with a strong immune system.

Stress

Do you want to know what it feels like to not be stressed and anxious all the time?
Do you want to experience for yourself the effect of stress on your health and what it might feel like if you reduce this stress?

Are you not sure what causes you stress and how to balance it more in your life?

Stress is an unavoidable part of everyday life, but it doesn’t have to control you. By becoming more aware of what you want in your life and how you want to feel, you can start to affect your stress positively so that you feel more in control of your life.

Sometimes this means making changes. I believe change is not something you can force on yourself but is more like a timid cat that you need to usher in gently and kindly. I also believe that change can only come by first accepting and loving yourself and this in itself can bring a revolution to your stress levels.
