About Fiona

Hello, I'm Fiona Morris, 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 Herbal Healthcare Consultations*, I also offer: 

Holistic Massage, Indian Head Massage, Holistic Facials, Tarot & Astrology Readings* at my clinics in Edinburgh & Peebles, Scotland.

(*also available internationally by online video call) 

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, 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 training and qualifying as a Medical Herbalist, I worked at Napiers Herbal Clinics in Edinburgh, Scotland 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, Edinburgh, Space108 Holistic Therapy Centre, Peebles & from Nourish and Flourish, Peebles. 

I have worked seasonally as a Foraging & Natural Remedy Making Tutor for Outlook Projectoffering courses and workshops for users of mental health services in Edinburgh, and for Edinburgh City Council Adult Education Programme.

I am also able to support my clients on their personal development and healing journeys as an Tarot & Astrology reader with over 20 years experience. I have now combined this with my herbal skills to offer a new service called Tea & Tarot.

For the past 3 years, I have become increasingly passionate about supporting my fellow creatives & holistic business owners by offering bespoke Holistic Business Readings, and providing space to connect and share with like minds at the Divine Business Circle communities online internationally and in person in Peebles & Edinburgh, Scotland.

In my free time, I love to spend time in nature, 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, both myself and as a host for guest teachers, and available for retreats, talks, walks and workshops on request

Feel free to get in touch to book an appointment or complimentary 10min call to explore how I may be of support to you on your healing journey.
