Wendy Kelly, Herbalist

BSc(Hons) in Phytotherapy, MNIMH. Medical Herbalist.

Wendy qualified in 2002 with a BSc(Hons) in Phytotherapy. Since then she has practiced in Fife, Angus and the Lothians. She is a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.

Wendy began her interest in herbal medicine in her early twenties when a persistent health problem just wasn't going away with conventional medicine. She walked into Napiers Herbal Dispensary in Edinburgh to ask for help and was given a bottle of blended herbs to take - and never looked back!

Wendy was so impressed with the power of this herbal remedy, that she decided to find out more and soon began her training as part of the Napiers Dispensary team and studying at the Sussex College of Phytotherapy. Over 5 years she studied hard and worked as a dispensary assistant, deputy manager and finally shop manager in Napiers until she qualified in 2002 with a BSc(Hons) in Phytotherapy. Since then Wendy has practiced in Fife, Angus and the Lothians.

Wendy is a fully qualified member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH). This indicates that she is fully trained and works within the ethical guidelines set out by NIMH. We study the philosophy, principles and practice of herbal medicine and medical science and take a holistic view of health and illness.

As well as seeing patients in clinic for one to one consultations, Wendy loves to spread the herbal joy by running herb walks and workshops as well as doing regular talks on all aspects of herbal medicine. She is a mum of two boys, and an enthusiastic member of her local choir, enjoying the social aspect as much as the singing. Her love of crochet has extended to Wendy teaching beginner crochet lessons online and she really loves to bake!


Wendy sees the relationship between herbalist and patient as a partnership. Together you will look at whatever brought you to Wendy in the first place, working out where well-being and health has gone wrong and how it can be improved. Wendy takes into account lifestyle, medical history, diet and anything else that could help with bringing things into balance.

Quite often, Wendy finds that her patients know themselves what needs done, but just need a bit of herbal support and a nudge in the right direction. Wendy is there to provide the herbal knowhow and to champion you and give some accountability to encourage positive change in your life. Nothing is more satisfying than getting a patient better as a result of the team work between the herbs, the herbalist and the patient.

Wendy practices from Napiers Edinburgh Clinic.
