I am trained in the medical sciences of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology as well as traditional herbal subjects of herbal materia medica and therapeutics, dietetics, pharmacy, botany and photochemistry. I also have in-depth training in vaginal health & ecology and maintain thorough CPD in this area. Training in the Western tradition means that my practice is informed by medical knowledge as well as hundreds of years of traditional, elemental, western herbal wisdom.
I graduated from The University of Westminster, London in 2009 with a first class BSc (Hons) degree in Western Herbal Medicine. Additionally, I am trained in Bach Flower Remedies, Mizan Abdominal Massage, Ceremonial Cacao, and Gong, as well as holding a Batchelor of Arts degree with Honours. I have a deep interest in the psycho-sexual connection, breaking down the taboos of female sexuality, developmental psychology and the spirit of place. I am a member of the British Herbal Medicine Association (BHMA) and of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), the oldest professional body for medical herbalists in the UK.
It is a privilege and joy to do this work!

Speak to me to find out what we could do together.
“Kathie’s talk on herbalism and vulval care was engaging and allowed our members to learn more about herbalism, the different types of products available and the benefit of using natural lubricants. Our members found it comforting to know that there are natural products out there that could help with dryness, irritation and thrush, and discussions on this were well received. Thank you Kathie!” – Lucy, Branch Co-ordinator, Sexpression, Nottingham University Branch
“My consultation with Kathie was warm, thorough and professional. She listened intently to all of my separate conditions and symptoms, and treated each one as its own entity to create the overall bigger picture of how to treat me. She has even considered things my own hospital consultants haven’t given much time to and treated me like a human being, instead of just a number on a list.
I’ve been on the herbal tea programme she’s crafted for me personally for nearly two weeks now. It’s a comfort in itself to drink a cup of tea knowing is made with nothing but love and knowledge to attempt to treat me. And whilst I can’t accurately comment on things just yet, I do feel slightly more energised. I’ve definitely got more things done than normal and managed to “push through”. It’s an interesting ride and I’m really looking forward to seeing where the end result takes me.
Thank you for Kathie for your kindness, professional manners and warm demeanour.” – M Wood
“Kathie is authentic and honest. No airy fairy nonsense – she’s real.” – Sarah
“Back in July 2021 I asked Kathie to be part of a Menopause Master Class Event called (Power, Sex and Identity). Kathie was on the panel with a Life Coach and The M Word Haringey who were the hosts of the event. Kathie’s straight talking and knowledgeable approach was a breath of fresh air! and her directness whilst speaking about anatomy and intimacy were a big hit with the participants of the event. Kathie is enthusiastic and easy to speak to which are key factors when opening up taboo topics. The M Word Haringey have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kathie and hope to continue this working relationship on future events.” – Keesha Sinclair, Local Area Coordinator, Haringey Council
“Kathie was very understanding and kind, made me feel comfortable. Very clear explanation for every question I had, Kathie always got back to me immediately. Kathie really does mean to help! Thank you so much, I’m so grateful to got in touch with you!” – Sara
“Your tinctures and abdominal massage have helped me to get my life back on track again. I was so drained and disempowered when I started coming to you after years of confusing intolerances and sickness, and now my digestive system is back on track and I have the energy to embrace life! Thank you!” – a client
“Kathie shared her skills and knowledge with us at the local moot, she brought along seasonal herbs such as mugwort, linden, nettle, cleavers, yarrow, elder and hawthorn, describing and advising on their safe use with evident expertise. Her time and gentle attention were much appreciated, we all learned so much in the welcoming warm atmosphere she generated. Highly recommended!” – Moot Organiser
“Kathie, The Wylde Herbalist, has been very helpful to me. I came to her with a pretty longstanding post menopausal problem – a sore and uncomfortable vagina and vulva. Kathie is a very warm and approachable young woman and she is clearly a talented and sensitive practitioner.
Kathie prescribed herbs, pessaries and some topical cream which have been very effective. We worked together for 3 sessions over 2/3 months and I can say that her regime has greatly improved my vaginal health and my sexual confidence has begun to bounce back!
I can wholeheartedly recommend Kathie, The Wylde Herbalist.” – A patient, Winter 2020
“I feel so lucky to have come across Kathie’s website and contacted her. I have suffered from endometriosis since my early 20s – after two operations and several other therapies, I was still suffering from severe pains almost every night. Lately, I also started to get thrush but nothing really seemed to help in the long-term. After an initial and extremely thorough consultation with Kathie and actioning her advice, I feel so much better. It sometimes feels too good to be true as I can say that for the first time in over 15 years I am pain-free and managing to keep the thrush under control. Thank you, Kathie, for helping me so much.” – Maria
“Kathie’s Cacao ritual was enriching and unique, with a subtle alchemy Kathie conjures up a unique magical experience using traditional unrefined cacao evoking an ancient power of the past.” – Richard
“GORGEOUS herbs. One dose this afternoon and I feel way better than I did this morning!! Melissa is magic!!” – a patient, April 21
“Easy to use, wonderful natural product which really helps moisturise. Kathie was so helpful on our initial consultation and able to help me with my concerns. Highly recommend this product.” – a patient talking about a hand-blended Fennel Cream for post menopausal dryness
“Kathie has been amazing! She is not only a fantastic herbalist but is also a fountain of natural and alternative heath knowledge! I have been suffering with vaginal ill-health for many years, especially with menstruation and she helped me through it all. What I really love about working with Kathie is that your body and health matters. It isn’t just about symptoms, it’s about you and how you are, the ‘whole’ you. She helps you to get to know yourself and your body and to develop confidence in that. I have a completely different relationship with my body now and I owe it all to Kathie and her practice.” – A client since 2016
“A big thank you for making me feel so much better! It’s not just the teas and tinctures, talking to you really is part of – you understand and can interpret what I’m trying to get at. It really is completely transformative and wonderful!” – a client
