Introducing Herbal Medicine

Most cultures have used plants as their main source of health care since history began with many cultures continuing to do so today. Our Western culture still maintains a robust tradition of herbal medicine use.

Holistic Western Herbal Medicine is the considered use of plants to aid health and wellbeing.

How you can benefit from Herbal Medicine:

  • herbs deal with illness by helping restore health balance
  • herbs improve a sense of wellbeing by dealing with anxiety, stress, depression and low energy
  • herbs empower vital capacity providing you and your body with a more relaxed and comfortable vitality* with which to heal.

*Vitality is the natural energy present and available in life; over time, this decreases due to illness, stress, malnourishment, organs failing to work effectively etc.

Benn’s practice focuses on encouraging a sense of wellbeing and calmness in the face of life stresses. And, a return to a healthy balance, that’s effective and normal for you.

Symptoms, illness and depression, anxiety, tension and a lack of personal clarity, can create confusion and show a need for new perspectives and finding a capacity to shift.

Herbal medicines, combined with personal practitioner skills, are a powerful combination for people requiring help with their health and wellbeing.

I’ve had a very positive experience working with Benn. His very professional approach was he listened to everything I had to say and put together a holistic plan for getting to the bottom of the issues that I was having using herbal medicines and a Food Intolerance Test. I experienced great results from the off-set of seeing Benn. My energy levels increased, bloating levels reduced significantly, I experienced less headaches and my muscular tension reduced. After trying many different routes to get to the bottom of the issues I was having, I was delighted to find Benn who put together a holistic approach to resolve my issues. I would definitely recommend Benn to anyone seeking holistic therapy.

Being 35 – 65 [in midlife] is a potent time of challenge when you become increasingly aware of mortality and death – of parents, of family – even your own… Parents age, children grow, things change and life demands so much…

End of Life & Living Funerals

Each individual is unique and deserves their opportunity to celebrate their life whilst hale of mind, if not hale in body. To lift a glass with loved ones, to smile, to touch, to hug, to have one last dance. To laugh; to cry.

Potential solution: Living funerals or “awake wakes” are special, well-held spaces for one at end of life to say their farewells in person. For family and friends to make memories; share love; to remember the beauty of life, even as life is fading.

You get to celebrate your life together unrestricted by chapel times and death getting in the way. Click here for more information.

Dealing with Death

At death, the person we knew is no more. Losing their personality changes everything and forms much of the grief you may face – you may longer hold them, care for them, or experience their presence for they are silent. But your love is not.

Cultural beliefs may include don’t discuss “it” for it may be contagious; ignore it; fear it; don’t acknowledge it. If you follow these ideas, then death can’t overwhelm you…

These old customs encourage keeping silent  about the painful, frightening things of life. Whilst no one may listen to how you feel, they will tell you should deal with your emotions, to fix your mind, thoughts and feelings. Question is: how would you like to feel?

Potential solution: When you choose to release bottled up emotions without judgement, you’ll feel cared for and released from the darkness of pain.

This can be achieved by regaining perspective of your life through airing what you’re thinking and feeling about your grief. With a person detached from the rest of your world in a safe, confidential environment. Click here for more information.


There are many ways to design or host a funeral. For some people, tradition is essential; for others, a service without the sombre, formalised rituals suits them as a preference.

Many modern funerals are personalised with a blend of tradition with modern ritual that fits the one who has died, and their family. Whether this is religious, secular, with or without spirituality.

Potential solution: You require a completely different way of doing a funeral. One that encompasses the one who has died;  their and your beliefs and rituals; one that fulfils your needs as you say farewell in whatever way works for you. For you have designed and created a funeral you’ll cherish and value by working with a professional. Click here for more information.

Grief & Bereavement

Grief – the experience of loss and how you deal with it – is very individual to you.

Loss comes in many forms; the end of a life, the end of a relationship, the end of a role at work, significant life changes such as moving home or a health crisis…

One description of grief is “heartbreak”, a devastation that may influence an entire life, to be invisibly ingrained with far-reaching effects.

How you respond to these knocks and heartbreaks depends upon your resilience and perspective.

Potential solution: When you gain a fresh perspective, you arrive at a place you can deal with something that [invisibly] traps you. On release, you can regain your inner strength to face life. Click here for more information.
