About Jacqueline

Photo of Jacqueline

Since 1992, more than 4000 people have sought my help in achieving optimum health.

Herbalism is unique among alternative therapies in requiring an orthodox medical training on a par with that of General Practitioners in the NHS. This training makes us very safe practitioners and enables us to work with all degrees of ill health, from minor ailment to serious chronic illness. However, we are also exemplary holistic practitioners. We look at health in terms of whole body vitality, sound nutrition and physical and emotional well-being.

While my first perspective on a patient's condition is based on Western clinical medicine, I have studied diverse cultural medicine systems and draw on Chinese, Ayurvedic and European folk medicine traditions when considering the significance of symptoms and potential treatments. Through training, experience and aptitude, I know which herbal remedy to use when, and what to expect from it.

I share my knowledge and experience with patients and aim to make each consultation an opportunity for learning more about aspects of themselves and their health and for gaining the motivation to be well.

It is important to me to provide a comfortable, relaxed, unhurried environment where patients can fully express their health concerns, in confidence, and know that they are respectfully and intelligently heard.
