Abby is a Medical Herbalist, Naturopath and (former) Psychiatric Nurse, currently based in Sheffield, UK.
I believe that each person is wonderfully unique and deserves to be listened to, heard and supported in a way that honours them as an individual, with a healthcare package specifically designed to suit their own, distinct needs and circumstances. I feel that there is currently a huge gap in women’s health care in particular and that a holistic approach is imperative in bridging this gap, supporting women to feel empowered while moving through the many stages, phases and roles in their lives with greater balance and ease.
I feel a deep calling to support women as they journey towards their own optimal level of wellbeing and vitality. I love supporting my clients through a holistic, plant based approach to health, helping them reconnect with nature and their own potential to live the life they choose. I have seen first hand the ways in which herbs truly shine as powerful facilitators along this journey and connecting people with herbal medicine brings me incredible joy in carrying out my work. As a Medical Herbalist and Naturopath, my mission is to help my clients discover the resources and tools they need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life and to be able to sustain this going forward in the long-term.
Training and Education
I am predominantly trained as a Western Herbalist, however my education and practice also encompasses elements of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Iridology, all of which build a deeper understanding of an individual’s constitution, helping to create a clearer picture and to shape our course of action. I also work with flower essences to help further facilitate the emotional journey and often add these to herbal tinctures to provide additional support where this may be indicated.
I spend time taking a detailed health history and discussing my clients personal goals with them. My approach involves working collaboratively together with you throughout your journey and I endeavour to provide clients with sustainable action plans and education that will support their long-term health for years to come.
I am fully insured and a member of three professional bodies; The Association of Master Herbalists, The Association of Naturopathic Practitioners and The General Naturopathic Council. These associations are committed to upholding high standards and ethics which all members abide by in order to provide excellent care and best practice for all clients. I am dynamically engaged in and committed to attending CPD (Continuing Professional Development) seminars, lectures and workshops on a frequent basis to continuously update and inform my practice to maintain exceptional standards of care.
