Consultations and Fees

Herbal Medicine is not just a job, it is my passion and life’s work. My ultimate goal is to support my patients, educate and empower people in the community and improve lives generally.

I will work with you to achieve your personal goals for better health, help you gain insights into the underlying root causes, as well as discuss herbal, dietary and lifestyle options. Sometimes, people don’t really have anything wrong but choose to have a consultation just as a general check-up, to ensure that all is well.

Every client receives a detailed therapeutic plan with the agreed health goals, life style advice, dietary suggestions and prescribed herbs.

Telephone and video consultations are available from my home practice in Sunnyside Road, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, where I also keep a fully stocked herbal dispensary with fresh plant tinctures, teas, creams and much more.

At this time I am trying to protect the vulnerable in my patient group and family, so telephone, Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime consultations are the way forward. Please do give me a call or send me an email to find out how this works practically.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday:  10am to 5.30pm

What happens during a consultation?

During your first consultation, I will build up a picture of you and your health by:

• Taking your full case history
• Asking about your family’s medical history
• Discussing your diet and lifestyle
• Finding out about any medication or supplements you use

This allows me to assess the underlying causes of your illness and formulate a mixture of herbs tailored to your individual needs.

Your individual treatment plan will include herbal remedies and, where appropriate, dietary changes or nutritional supplements. Most herbal medicines are given in the form of a liquid tincture that is taken in 5ml doses two or three times daily. You may also be prescribed a herbal tea, tablets, ointment, cream or lotion.

After the initial consultation, three or four shorter consultations are usually necessary to assess your progress, followed by check-ups every three to six months, depending on the nature of your condition. This protocol may vary, as each individual is unique and will respond differently to herbal treatment. Because herbal medicines work in a gentle and subtle way, they can take longer to work than orthodox drugs, but their effects are long lasting and there should be no side effects.
