The Herbal Practice

aims to provide you with help and resources for managing

your physical and mental health, restoring health naturally.

The Herbal Practice is a health care service for people in and around Bristol, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire who want to find alternative and natural ways

to manage their primary health care issues. 


Good lasting health is about balance: a balanced mind, balanced diet, balanced activities, balanced values, balanced relationships and a balanced flow of energy through your entire being. These are what enable you to make good choices and

reach your fullest potential in life.

If you have chronic health issues, have low energy and motivation, or are struggling with a sense of being 'stuck' with a condition that won't shift, then herbal medicine together with stress management can help put things back in balance for you, supporting you with natural botanical medicines and enabling you to move through the issues positively and empowering you to find solutions that break through the blocks whether physical or mental.


Addressing health issues in isolation is a slow way to regain balance. Each client is an inter-connected 'whole' and each problem area impacts on other problem areas. Getting to the root cause of our problems, the point where things began to go wrong, is the surest way to get a lasting positive result, restoring balance in mind and body. Medical Herbalism combines ancient traditional knowledge of medicinal plants with scientific research and modern applications for today's health issues, and its holistic and naturopathic approach treats the person as a whole, and not just specific illnesses and symptoms.


Education is a vital part of the natural medicine practitioner's role, replacing learnt behaviours and habits that are unhelpful or even destructive, with beneficial, supportive ones.


Learning to care for and take responsibility for your own health and well being, is ultimately about finding a happier and more productive life!
