The room here at The Sheffield Health & Wellbeing Clinic has been developing continuously since it was opened in April. More therapists have come on board and we now have a 2nd herbalist starting their new career here after completing the degree course in Lincoln.
Patient numbers are growing steadily but there is plenty of room for improvement. Due to the nature of the business it is clear that most people find me as a herbalist through either meeting me or seeing a family member or friend go through treatment. This means that standard avenues of advertising tend to not work as well as planned. A healthy instagram account along with facebook followers is great for awareness but it doesn’t necessarily mean i get patients. A recent successful herb walk at the Hulme Community garden project in Manchester was a reminder that i need to get out more to showcase what i and herbal medicine can do. A new patient signed up the following week which felt like a gentle nudge i need to get out more.
I have also moved my large and ever-growing plant collection here to the clinic. The total now stands at 53 the last time i checked. This is slowly turning into a bit of an obsession but i really believe it makes a huge difference to the energy, quality and experience of sitting here with me and talking. Being surrounded by nature reminds us that it is nature that is healing us. The time and energy that goes into caring for them so we can enjoy their presence together is hopefully a reminder of the care and tenderness that goes into deciding what prescription a patient should be given.
Please have a look at the gallery below. Thanks again to all the people who put their faith and money into a project that i was unsure would be as successful at it has. Look at what you helped blossom!
