Caitlin Covington, Clinical Herbalist

Caitlin is a herbalist, flower essence practitioner, medicine maker, and wildcrafter. She is the founder of Flora Stone Apothecary and has spent the past decade studying with a variety of traditional healers, herbalists, and naturopaths to learn the science and art of using herbs and food as medicine. Her specialities include: women’s hormonal/reproductive health (menarche to menopause), digestion, skin issues, anxiety/depression, adrenal fatigue, allergies, and detoxification. In recent years her work has expanded to include energy work, pulse/tongue diagnosis, flower/stone essences, and deeper work with the unconscious mind and subtle bodies.

A typical session will be guided by the client’s needs focusing on using natural remedies to bring one’s health back into alignment. Caitlin also places an emphasis on educating her clients with lifelong skills and empowering them with useful knowledge so they can heal themselves. Time and time again she is amazed and honoured to support people on their healing journey and connect them with the medicine of the plants.

Josie Penn, fertility and pregnancy nutritionist

Josie has worked as a Nutritional Therapist for many years, graduating from The College of Naturopathic Medicine (London) in 2012. Having spent the early years of her career supporting clients with a broad range of presenting symptoms, Josie chose to specialise in fertility, pregnancy and postpartum recovery following the birth of her twins in early 2017.

Josie’s understanding and firsthand experience of pregnancy, postnatal recovery and caring for children whilst staying optimally nourished, presents immense challenges; at a time of critical nutritional and emotional need. These experiences led Josie to work in support of expectant and postpartum mothers facing similar challenges.

Josie was struck by the lack of quality, up to date, evidenced-based information readily available to the public around pregnancy and postpartum nutrition. Josie offers both private one on one sessions and regular talks to improve awareness of optimal nutrition in this period of our lives.

Josie is a thoughtful and attentive therapist, passionate about the work she does, she aims to empower her clients with knowledge to motivate them on their own health journey.

Vanessa Muradian, Sexologist

Vanessa is the founder of Mia Muse has been working in the sex and wellness industry for close to 10 years. Sexology sessions with Vanessa will focus on identifying blocks that prevent you from being intimate with yourself and others and provide you with techniques to prioritise your sexuality to shift energy and be present with what you are feeling. Vanessa’s sessions may also include meditation and yoga.

"I love doing this work as I believe sexuality and our connection to our sexual selves is imperative in living a full and healthy life. Sexuality, sensuality and our expression of it, whether through dancing, gardening, cooking, sex, or any activity that contributes to greater wellbeing can nurture a woman’s connection to herself and ultimately her desires. I would love to help you connect to yourself deeply, help you shift blockages that get in the way of intimate relationships and generally just provide you a safe space for exploration, so that you can live the most dynamic, passionate and full life that you are capable of."
