Urban Herbology is:
Horticultural therapist and herbology teacher

I have always had a deep fascination for the natural world. I express this through teaching, writing and horticultural therapy.
My professional background is in teaching, complementary therapies, permaculture and nature education. Outside of paid work I am involved in creating urban foraging sites and increasing food sovereignty. I enjoy yoga, meditation and walking.
Currently, I lead ecotherapy (green time) sessions in Amsterdam for people who want to connect deeply with nature. I also run a herbology course, open workshops and foraging walks.
My style of eco therapy combines mindfulness, gentle coaching and hands on herb gardening and crafting.
I was raised in a farm house on the edge of Bristol, surrounded by brambles, rosehips, rabbits, birds, cows and moon daisies. My love of life led me to become a geneticist and then a biology teacher. Alongside, I dived into the world of herbs, studying everything I could find and speaking to everyone I could, who had knowledge to share. During the past 25 years I have studied herbalism (non-clinical) with Susun Weed and Glennie Kindred, Permaculture with Patrick Whitefield and Permaculture Visions, Horticultural Therapy with Thrive and Life Coaching with Civas. I am a member of the Dutch Gilde van Wildplukkers.
