I worked with Jessie as my Herbalist last year after a really stressful time in my life and she worked wonders using the herbs supporting my wellbeing and growing rejuvenation. I highly recommend her as a practitioner to anyone! Working with her and the herbs restored a deep sense of wellbeing and balance in my body and mind. She thoroughly knows her stuff, was always really professional and knowledgeable and I felt completely safe in her hands with her wisdom and supportive presence.

Jessie combines her practical lived experience of working with herbs, alongside her technical understanding and passion for healing. I found Jessie to be a great listener; sensitive and interested in all aspects of my life. I feel safe and confident in her care, and love the bespoke and adaptive flow of my treatment plan, according to my changing needs.
