Hello, my name is Deanne Greenwood BSc (Hons), MCPP, and I am a medical herbalist, based in Cornwall.
For me, Cornwall is a very special place. I believe it is a natural healing environment, its ever-changing landscapes, seascapes, colours and light imbuing it with a soothing, restorative power. I feel very strongly that this supports the work that I do.

MY RAISON D’ETRE
The words of the Greek physician Hippocrates (460BC), above, sparked my interest in holistic healing over 25 years ago. I consider it a privilege to share my knowledge of herbal medicine and help guide people along the path to good health and wellbeing.
I PRACTICE ON THE LIZARD PENINSULA, IN HELSTON AND FALMOUTH, IN CORNWALL
Whether you live in Cornwall, or further afield, I can support you on your healing journey. The first step is taking the time and space to think about your own health. By visiting this website, I am assuming you have done that. The next step is taking control of your health, by contacting me.
TELEPHONE AND SKYPE CONSULTATIONS
You can see me in person, or we can work together via telephone and Skype. Increasingly, I’m finding that people come to see me face-to-face for the first couple of consultations and then continue on Skype, as this is so convenient. You can see me in your own home, as it were, saving time and travel costs.
I hold a BSc (Hons) in Herbal Medicine – a degree course that included medical sciences as well as herbal therapeutics. I am trained in pharmacology, so will be familiar with any medication you are taking and possible interactions with herbal medicine, and also in conventional diagnostic techniques, ie, those used by medical doctors.
I am fully insured, and regularly participate in Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
