Nicky qualified with a BSc honours degree in herbal medicine from the University of Westminster in 2001. She has subsequently gained a master’s degree in research. She practises from a wooden building, formerly part of a Victorian cricket pavilion, in the garden of her home in Hampton, Middlesex. She belongs to the herbalist’s professional body - the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy. She is able to write about the herbalist’s approach to ill-health and the benefits it may have over orthodox medical treatment. She can discuss its scope, the nature of the consultation, the type of treament, its likely outcome, and the suitability of treatment of particular conditions by herbs. She is a member of the Medicinal Receipts Research Group, an academic group which is involved in researching medicinal and culinary recipes from the past. Her research skills enable her to read old manuscripts and historical texts
