Welcome! I am Lynn Shore, a British born Natural Therapist and Foraging teacher, based in Amsterdam since 2004. My work is about living in harmony with nature, and is especially focused on traditional western herbalism and ethical urban foraging; sharing information about how growing, foraging and using local herbs can help improve our lives. I offer:

The natural world has always deeply fascinated me – we are part of it and need to respect it. I express this through working with clients to improve their health, teaching, writing and being in green spaces. I specialise in helping people with mental health needs and women struggling with aspects of their menopause.

I was raised in the 1970’s and 80’s in a farm house on the edge of Bristol, surrounded by rosehips, rabbits, birds and moon daisies. My love of nature led me to become a geneticist and then a biology teacher. Alongside that, I dived into the world of natural therapies, studying everything I could, and speaking to everyone possible, with knowledge to share about traditional herbalism and other natural ways to health. I became a qualified Herbalist, BWY Yoga teacher and Precision Reflexologist around 25 years ago, and a special educational needs coordinator 5 years ago. I have studied in the UK (non-clinical herbal medicine) and am currently working towards my Medical Herbalist degree. I hold a Netherlands Kruidengeneeskunde (hbo) diploma, trained in Wise Woman herbalism with Susun Weed and Glennie Kindred, Permaculture with Patrick Whitefield and Permaculture Visions (PDC) and also Horticultural Therapy with Thrive (Univ. Coventry).

I am a member of BATC, Herbalists Without Borders, The Herb Society, Association of Foragers, Association of Reflexologists (MAR), British Psychological Society (BPS), and the Complementary Medical Association.

Healing through herbs, movement and massage is in my blood. It was not a conscious choice to follow this path, the plants made me do it!
