I believe that herbal medicine is a natural and sustainable way to support your health. To see the positive outcomes in my patients is very rewarding and motivates me, day after day.
On this page I hand over to my patients and provide space for them to share their experiences.
“Interstitial cystitis can be difficult to eradicate even when you are doing everything right, but the tincture and tea I was prescribed by Alice worked well towards easing symptoms and resulted in a very significant improvement.”
I was referred to Alice by my previous herbalist who unfortunately couldn’t see me at the time. I was suffering from acute interstitial cystitis (IC) and knew from previous occasions that herbal treatment could be effective in improving this condition.
I found Alice to be welcoming, warm and very engaged; her passion for and knowledge of medical herbalism was evident. She was interested in me as a whole person and considered other wellbeing aspects in the assessment/treatment of my problem. At each step she showed to have a deep scientific knowledge of my condition and sought out further advice and information in order to provide me with the best care.
I completely trusted Alice’s treatment, advice and reassurance. IC can be difficult to eradicate even when you are doing “everything right”, but the tincture and tea I was prescribed by Alice worked well towards easing symptoms and resulted in a very significant improvement.
I can be quite sensitive to any kind of treatment, herbal or otherwise – Alice took this into consideration and as a result I was able to tolerate the herbs well, as they worked gently but effectively.
No doubt I will consult Alice in the future to address any conditions that are amenable to herbal treatment and would strongly recommend her as a medical herbalist.

“I have felt much better since taking the herbal medicine, with no further flare ups.”
In May 2022 I suffered a gallbladder colic. It was a first time experience and I was very ill. The ultrasound showed small stones and ‘sludge’. On advice from my consultant, I was to stick to a low-fat diet. I joined Slimming World and started to carefully monitor my diet. I had previously been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and felt down and concerned about my health.
In early October, I consulted Alice and explained that I had not been keeping well. She prescribed a tea and a tincture to help my digestion and gallbladder issues. I have felt much better since taking the herbal medicine, with no further flare ups.
I have had a couple of follow-up appointments and at the most recent one we discussed that I am in a good place. I feel well inside and out, and positive for the future. Alice had a gentle and caring manner and I am grateful to have met her.

“The herbs Alice prescribed me have been amazing, the painful periods have gone which has given me such peace of mind.”
For a few years I had been experiencing very painful periods that were affecting my day to day life. After being told by my doctor that there was nothing they could do to help I looked into herbal medicine.
Alice was caring, sensitive and professional and I felt heard at every stage. The herbs Alice prescribed me have been amazing, the painful periods have gone which has given me such peace of mind.
The herbs also have addressed PMS symptoms I had previously accepted couldn’t be helped, such as low moods, and made them much more manageable or got rid of them. All this with no side effects!
My experience with the herbs and Alice’s holistic approach to health has shown me how powerful herbs are and I cannot recommend Alice or herbal medicine highly enough!

I consulted Alice recently to treat a hormone imbalance. The prescription she prescribed worked straight away and I experienced remarkable results, I have had fewer flushes and a more even mood.
Alice is very passionate about what she does and it is evident she knows her subject well. She diligently diagnoses your symptoms, and puts you at ease with her kindness and expertise. I would have no hesitation to use her services again.

“I’ve been amazed at the difference herbal medicine has made to my health since Alice started treating me earlier this year.”
By looking at my problems holistically, and understanding the interconnected nature of my issues with underactive thyroid, anaemia and menstrual cycle irregularities, I’ve seen a remarkable difference in a short time. It’s shown me the amazing power of herbs when combined with traditional medicine.
I’d highly recommend Alice to anyone who is struggling with their health. Her caring and sensitive approach to treatment makes you feel at ease and confident that she will do her best for you as a patient.’

“The tincture Alice prescribed worked wonders. It settled my nervous system and allowed me to regain good nights’ sleep without any unpleasant side effects.”
It was my first encounter with herbal medicine, and it gave me a lot of confidence in its efficacy. Alice is a great diagnostician, and takes a lot of care in the assessment and prescribing of any medication. She is also very knowledgeable about the herbs, and how they can support the person back into health in a holistic way. I can highly recommend her.

“Alice prepared a tincture which I use twice daily. Incredibly for me, this tincture has reduced the irregularity of my heartbeat to virtually nil.”
During 2018 I experienced an erratic heartbeat, something I had never suffered from before. After consultation with my GP I was referred to the cardiology department at the local hospital.
Consequently, I was given a monitoring device to read my heart function over a 24 hour period. The result showed I did indeed have an irregular heartbeat several times during the recorded period. This was diagnosed as atrial ectopic beats, something the NHS does not treat and is regarded by them as ‘normal’.
Over the next months this worsened and became more frequent and ‘heavier’ in feel. I found this more disconcerting and was not entirely happy I was just ‘left to get on with it’.
I considered seeking alternative treatment and contacted Alice accordingly.
She assessed me, and the problem carefully, in a friendly and extremely professional manner. It is obvious she is a very kind and caring practitioner.
Alice prepared a tincture which I use twice daily. Incredibly for me, this tincture has reduced the irregularity of my heartbeat to virtually nil.
I now only experience a “hiccup” very occasionally, which has given me such confidence and peace of mind.
I can recommend Alice in the highest regard and would suggest you contact her for a different opinion and way of working if, like me, you do not receive a satisfactory outcome from the NHS.
