Abby is a Clinical Herbalist, Naturopath and (former) Psychiatric Nurse, currently based in Sheffield, UK.
Abby believes 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. Abby feels 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.

As a Clinical Herbalist and Naturopath, Abby's mission is to help her clients discover the resources and tools they need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
