I am a naturopath, trainer/facilitator, supervisor and lover of teas & tisanes.  In addition to being committed to fabulous, ‘real’ food and the effectiveness of herbal medicine, I am also a registered nurse and I use a combination of strategies and broad experience to help you achieve lasting good health.  I am passionate about helping people to achieve their health goals through sensible, realistic means – no crazy regimes or extreme diets here!
