Our Story

Green Goddess incorporates modern day plant medicine into its products, practices and philosophy. We heal with plants, drawing on the rich pharmacy of herbal medicine and  plant based nutrition.

We are a female lead team of medical herbalists, health coaches, nutrition experts and therapists. 

We believe in natural, evidence based solutions to our shared health problems and that prevention is always better than cure.  

For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature. Rudolph Steiner 

Wellness is really about:

  • Mind, body & soul
  • Balance
  • Meaning and purpose
  • Play
  • Connection
  • Nature and adventure
  • Movement and the moment
  • Nourishing self

Meet our founder

 

Hello I'm Angelina I have a love for people, plants and the planet.  I suppose Green Goddess is a reflection of that. We all have a story to tell and mine began a million miles away from those things.

18 years ago I was working as a steel buyer, developing property and managing my family, life was fast and exhausting.  I constantly ignored the mental and physical signs of stress and extreme fatigue. Eventually, two big life events blew the lid from the pot.  Anxiety, panic and chronic insomnia. Welcome to burn out.

The interesting part of that chapter was arriving at the GP surgery and expecting to be fixed. The only solution that day was a pill or two that I knew I didn’t want to take. It was the start of a difficult journey but an epiphany and turning point as I  set about fixing myself.

Many years on I work within our private practice in Bedfordshire and specialise in anxiety. I work with a combination of therapeutic practices tailored to the individual including cognitive therapy, mindfulness, health coaching, nutrition and herbal medicine.     

What else? A self confessed life long learner. I drive an electric car, am self building an Eco-house, love to forage for healing plants, walk my frenchie, practise kundalini yoga and cook. 

My passion and purpose is to empower others to improve their mental and physical health. Our products, plant cultivation, practice and retreats stem from this motivation.
