About me

My name is Jane Ward and I am the Suburban Herbalist.


I qualified as an medical herbalist in 2015 with a BSc Hons. I completed the 4 year course at the University of East London in Stratford.

This included 500 clinical hours in the Stratford Herbal Medicine clinic and placements in the Dermatology  Department in Whipps Cross Hospital.

I have over 25 years experience as a nurse. I’ve worked as a general nurse at a hospital and as a practice nurse at a GP surgery, specialising in respiratory medicine. I have a Diploma from the National Association of Respiratory Care.

I aim to provide integrated health care for my clients, helping them to optimise their health needs through a combination of

  • herbs
  • diet
  • exercise
  • lifestyle advice
  • relaxation

My clients safety and wellbeing is extremely important to me. I will refer to other health care practitioners for advice if required.

I am also a qualified aroma therapist and massage therapist.
