Amanda qualified as a Medical Herbalist in 2000, from the College of Phytotherapy in Sussex, UK. The in-depth, 4 year professional training included 500 hours of clinical practice. Since 2001 she have been a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, the UK's leading professional body for herbal practitioners.


Amanda is the tutor on our Herbal Medicine courses here at CAT.

Amanda is also an experienced teacher and workshop facilitator and has led workshops both in the UK and internationally.

Her teaching focuses both on the practicalities of learning to use plants as medicine, (particularly common, native medicinal plants) and, more broadly, on developing a more healthy and resilient human culture. She believe that herbalists have a unique perspective on the interdependence between the natural and human worlds.
