Bel Charlesworth

I am an experienced medical herbalist with a passion for empowering others to embrace their full potential and have successfully worked with clients to improve their health using herbs, nutrition and wellbeing advice since I qualified with a BSc degree in Herbal Medicine from the University of Central Lancashire in 2003. 

I have a special interest in diet and nutrition, not just ‘what to eat’ but ‘how to eat’ for optimum health and vitality, and really enjoy helping others to achieve their goals in this area.  I also have a keen interest in fitness, especially open water swimming, and I find many of my clients further benefit from my knowledge as a Dru Yoga teacher to improve flexibility, core strength, posture, stress release and/or breathing and relaxation techniques whether this be for physical and/or emotional reasons. They’re usually all connected!

Over the years, I have brought all my expertise together to offer what I believe is truly a holistic package to assist my clients to achieve the very best in health and wellbeing.  While many of my clients come for help with existing medical conditions such as hormonal and skin problems, digestive issues and anxiety/stress-related conditions (many of which can be difficult to treat with conventional medications alone), other clients come knowing there’s nothing ‘clinically wrong’ but because they feel ‘something is just not quite right’ and they want some practical, professional help and support in ‘getting back to feeling themselves again’.

Yoga techniques are introduced only as part of the treatment plan if wanted and can be integrated within a regular follow-up consultation or booked as a one to one session. 

The consultation itself is part of your treatment and after exploring all the key issues involved, together we will make a treatment plan for you including tailored dietary advice, initial simple wellbeing and lifestyle changes to consider, vitamins and supplements if necessary and herbal medicines in an easy-to-take tonic. This is then developed further in future consultations according to the individual client’s needs and wishes.

My Optimum Health Plan which includes 3 consultations over 6-8 weeks is my most popular and effective treatment package as it enables the client to really commit to positive change within a set time frame knowing they have my support throughout. 8 weeks also allows sufficient time to find out if herbal medicine and/or my approach are going to be beneficial. I would expect a significant improvement during this time and so you will feel confident in continuing with treatment should you decide to do so.

I am a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists and the Dru Professional Network. I am also a learning tutor at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate and I run regular herbal, yoga and wellbeing courses and workshops there, locally and other venues across the UK.
