About Fiona

Hello, I'm Fiona Morris. 

I'm known as The Natural Healing Guide. I guide folk to heal themselves and others through creative connection with the healing power of nature. 

I do this for individuals and groups, through my clinical practice offering natural healthcare as a herbalist and holistic therapist, and as a foraging walk leader and natural health workshop facilitator.

As a Medical Herbalist, I'm registered with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) - a professional body of herbal medicine practitioners, established since 1864, that demands a high level of herbal knowledge, clinical medicine & diagnostic training, over 500 hours apprenticeship at student training clinics, a strong code of ethics and accountability. 

I enjoy enhancing my training through continued professional development at herbal, nutritional, clinical medicine and heart-centered business seminars and conferences, and further trainings in mind and body therapies to complement my herbal practice.

As well as providing holistic herbal health care, I am a qualified to offer: Holistic Massage, Indian Head Massage & 
Holistic Facials. I'm currently also completing my training in Traditional Thai Massage.

I share my passion for natural healthcare with clients of all ages - from babies to elders - as part of a team of skilled complementary therapists. My special interests are in travel health, emotional & mental health, optimal well being, creative approaches to healing and wild medicine 
foraging.

Initially, I became inspired by herbal medicine through an evening class I took while studying for an MA in Philosophy at Edinburgh University. I decided some years later to train in herbal medicine after travelling in Asia, North & Central America and Europe meeting traditional herbalists, experiencing herbal practice, and working with herbs in various locations.

I gained my first class BSc Honours degree in Herbal Medicine at Edinburgh Napier University, doing my dissertation research project on Herbal Medicine to Support Grief in Life-Threatening Illness
I was accepted as a NIMH member in 2009, when I was also awarded the Michael Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement. 

While completing my qualification, I worked at Napiers Herbal Clinics for 8 years working in various roles and gaining practical experience as a shop assistant, herbal medicine dispenser and receptionist advising patients on complementary therapies and natural healthcare products. 

Currently I offer Herbal Wellness Consultations, Indian Head Massage, Holistic Body Massage & Holistic Facial Treatments for Neal's Yard Remedies and The Salisbury Centre in Edinburgh. 

I work seasonally as a Foraging & Natural Remedy Making Tutor of for Outlook Project and Edinburgh City Council Adult Education Programme - offering courses and workshops for users of mental health services in Edinburgh.

I also support my clients on their personal development and healing journeys as an Tarot & Astrology reader with over 19 years experience. I have now combined this with my herbal skills to offer a new service called Tea & Tarot.

In my free time, I love to spend time creating nature art, camping and travelling.
 I enjoy cooking, yoga, meditation, writing and long walks in nature. I am a volunteer group facilitator and enthusiastic promoter of the Alternatives to Violence Project, an organisation that helps people reduce conflict in their lives and explore creative ways to improve relationships.

I host frequent herbal events and am available for talks, walks and workshops on request. Feel free to get in touch to discuss how I may be of support to you on your healing journey.
