DORE - YOUR HERBALIST
I am a qualified medical herbalist and member of both
the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH)
and the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy (CPP).
I am also an experienced university lecturer in natural
Following disappointments in the ability of conventional
medicine to treat my own medical problems I turned to
complementary therapies. These proved not only beneficial
to my health but the whole ethos of holistic diagnosis
and treatment inspired me to learn more about them.
It was my passion for the natural world and scientific
understanding of that world which led me to study medical
herbalism. I was a student for 4 years at the College
of Phytotherapy, which was founded by the renowned Hein
Zeylstra, one of the prime movers of modern herbal medicine.
Its alumni include Simon Mills and Kerry Bone, leading
practitioners in the field.
I operate out of 3 complementary therapy clinics situated in Girton (near Cambridge), St Ives and Royston(see Consultations
section for details).
Care of the environment and its preservation are important
to me so all the herbs I use come from sustainably managed
sources and 90% are organic. I also grow a number of
the herbs I use in my own garden.
I am very happy to give talks and presentations on the
role of herbal medicine in making our lives healthier.
