I’ve been in practice since 2009 and have experience supporting people with a wide range of health conditions. I have a special interest in endocrine disorders (i.e. thyroid, diabetes and adrenal fatigue), and am skilled at supporting people with stress and women going through the menopause. I believe in trying to make herbal medicine as accessible as possible and I am keen to educate people about what they can do themselves (for example growing their own herbs in their garden).

‘I was off work for two months with severe menopause symptoms. I had visited my GP on a number of occasions but unfortunately, none of the conventional medications prescribed provided any relief whatsoever.

Still feeling really ill and unable to cope, I booked a consultation with Veda. She was extremely thorough and professional as well as patient, considerate and genuinely caring. She made up a herbal mixture to address and alleviate my (list) of symptoms and within a remarkably short space of time I felt remarkably improved.

 I would recommend anyone to go and see Veda. My only regret is that I didn’t consult her sooner.’ (J.L. 2015)

I am an experienced lecturer, course developer, and writer for the Advanced Herbal Medicine Course at the Herbal Academy of New England. I hold both an MSc with distinction, and a first class BSc (hons) in Herbal Medicine. I was awarded The Phyto Products Award for Pharmacology for the year 2008-9 by the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (N.I.M.H.) for my work analysing the role, and mechanisms of action, of phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens found in plants such as Red Clover and Soya) in breast cancer.

 ‘I have an acknowledged, long term health problem affecting my immune system and consulted Veda when frankly I was feeling a sense of desperation with conventional medicine.  It was a healing experience, Veda took the time to listen carefully and thoughtfully to the background on the condition and how it was affecting me, produced medicinal herbs and creams which have definitely improved my situation and she continues to be extremely supportive.  Well recommended!’ (M.C. 2015).
