Claire Goulding

Claire Goulding is a Western Medical Herbalist (BSc) and member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH).

Her own menstrual cycles, and being diagnosed with endometriosis, led Claire to explore different ways to manage her symptoms. She found herbs and dietary changes to be the most impactful. Claire’s love for nature, foraging with the seasons, and her passion to pass on this precious knowledge led her to delve deeper into herbalism.

Prior to training in clinical herbalism, she worked as a Forest School leader, and in community engagement roles for charities. She then moved into complementary health because of her interest in women’s health. She has 14 years’ experience working as a massage therapist having trained in Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Holistic Massage. 

Her three-year degree in Clinical Herbalism involved training in botany, biochemistry, patho-physiology and herb drug interactions.

Claire sees a range of patients as part of her general practice. She now also specialises in women’s health, prescribing herbs and dietary and lifestyle advice for issues such as hormonal imbalances, skin complaints, mental health, stress, digestion issues and sleep disturbance.

Claire works with each of her patients with care, integrity and a commitment to help unlock the root cause of symptoms to achieve long-lasting changes to their health. She strongly believes that herbal medicine should be accessible and empowering for all. 

You can find out more on Claire’s website, and on her social media pages on Instagram and Facebook.

Outside of work, Claire enjoys wild swimming, and singing with a community choir.

“I’m so grateful for Claire’s focused support – I’ve gone from a very weakened version of myself to being fully back in my physical and mental strength in less than two months. I’m now so much more equipped to carry on my health journey. I can highly recommended booking in.”


I was immediately put at ease by Claire’s patient and calming nature and from that first meeting I felt a confidence that she wanted to explore and investigate my presenting complaints. Claire listened extensively and was very thorough when exploring possible contributing causes to my ill health. My conditions have much improved since being treated by Claire and I’m grateful for the opportunity. I don’t know what I would have done without her, it’s been a remarkable journey – I can’t thank her enough!”
