Hi. I’ve been working as a medical herbalist since 2003 and through my private practice offer my clients a professional and natural approach to optimum health using herbal medicines, dietary and wellbeing advice. As a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, my training has involved the study of the medical sciences, diagnostic skills and modern pharmacy in addition to the therapeutic use of medicinal plants and nutrition. As a hands-on herbalist, I’m also skilled in making medicines as well as herbal oils, creams and other preparations. All this I feel has well-equipped me to run the workshops and herb walks I am so passionate about and I hope you will be able to join me on one of them. Over the years I have also undertaken consultancy work for various companies in need of a herbal expert ranging from developing and facilitating herbal and wellbeing workshops and herb walks to advising on herbal products.
All the products and packaging in my online shop are sourced from ethical suppliers who share the same commitment to our planet and its inhabitants as I do. Ingredients are fully tested by my herbal suppliers and are organic or cultivated or wild harvested as sensitively as possible. The tinctures, creams and oils are manufactured in the UK by my herb suppliers and then dispensed at my new premises in Holmfirth in the heart of the Holme Valley. My herbal teas are hand-blended with love here in Yorkshire to my own tried and tested recipes. In fact I only dispense and make up products when I’m in a positive state of mind… thankfully this is most of the time... so that I can pack as much love as possible into my Yorkshire Herbalist products… this kind of thing is important to me x
I am also a Yoga therapist (with a 2 year diploma accredited by the British Council of Yoga Therapy) and Meditation teacher at the Dent Meditation Centre. I have completed 200RYT teacher training in both Dru Yoga and Vinyasa flow with further training in Yin Yoga, Backcare and Teen Yoga. I am also a qualified massage therapist, with further training in Ayurvedic treatments.
Please find further info about me below for those of you who are interested. I hope you enjoy exploring the site and please get in touch if you have any queries. Warm wishes, Bel x
