When the first signs of perimenopause arrived I knew that I should do something to help myself. My Mum had a really rough time with her transition to menopause and ended up taking HRT which has never been on my list of acceptable treatments for many reasons. My first port of call was always going to be Andrea, who is the gentlest, kindest and most generous of medical practitioners that I have ever come across. Within two weeks of starting to take my herbal medicine my symptoms were r… Read more
Autoimmune Diet for Rheumatoid Arthritis
I am currently on day 6 of the Diet and it’s working! Unbelievably for me I am sticking to it, especially given my inner rebel and sceptic! I had a rocky start but then really knuckled down and have 100% stuck to it and the pains in my fingers and toes have almost totally gone! My body no longer feels like i have permanently been hit by a bus, full of aches and pains. The mornings are most significant in that normally, before the diet I had to lever myself out of bed as if I was a lump of le… Read more

Integral to my Motherhood Journey
I first met Andrea a few years ago during one of her herbal walks at Culberry Nursery. I immediately felt her light, joy and kindness – making herbalism sound so effective and magical, yet accessible. I’ve taken some of her wonderful workshops, and she has been an extremely integral part of my motherhood journey – from the very beginning right through to the present…and my daughter is now almost four years old! She has also been a wonderful, generous and supportive friend. I cannot recomme… Read more
I want to shout from the roof tops – I am SO MUCH BETTER I have worked with Andrea for a few years on fibroids, adrenal weakness and for the past 3 years on an autoimmune thyroid condition, from which point I embarked on both a huge change to my diet as well as taking herbs and supplements. I was VERY debilitated, unable to work at all, pacing myself through the day with a lot of rest alongside feeling utterly dreadful for days on end.I have made slow progress and improvements as well as s… Read more
First Aid Kit Workshop, Fiona - Worthing
A fabulous workshop with handouts of relevant information. Andrea makes the session fun, whilst sharing her love and knowledge of herbalism in an interactive way. Being able to make products to bring home was just superb, I look forward to the next one!
I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia, and on another endoscopy , they found a pool of bile in the stomach. Both endoscopes were due to symptoms of pain, discomfort and reflux . I was given Omeprazole 20-40 mgs over several years. Reading on the Internet the problems encountered from long term proton pump inhibitors, I was delighted when I started Herbal Treatment with Andrea which included balancing my whole digestion. The reflux has now resolved and I am symptom free and off the Omeprazole. I … Read more
The Herbalist who saved Christmas
I have never written a testimonial as I am not one for sharing on computers but today I realised there must be many mums, wives,people going through the same pre christmas franticness that I am. After many years of working together wonderful Andrea has helped me get better by being not just a herbalist but an amazing teacher of life. Breathe through christmas and bathe in epsom salts thank you Andrea for reminding me life is so simple if you let it be.
Solving recurrent ear infections
Location: West Sussex I’ve attended Andrea’s brilliant and insightful workshops for a while now. Having used herbal medicine myself a while ago to overcome fertility issues I had no hesitation to look to Andrea when my 6 year old kept suffering from recurrent ear infections. She’d had three lots of antibiotics to “cure” these over a six month period and every 8 weeks she would seem to get another ear infection. We met with Andrea and were prescribed not only herbs but knowledge about the … Read more

Thanks again; it was inspiring and a spring tonic in every way! Hope to see you again soon.
