Born in Zimbabwe, she has lived in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Mozambique and Botswana where she began offering emergency medical support to remote communities where the need arose due to a lack of medical centres in these areas. Gillian’s journey in alternative medicine and therapies was born out of the need to support these communities and started with many books, research and amazing support and guidance from both a GP and a Homeopath/Naturopath. Gillian qualified as a Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist in the UK and continues to study in the alternative and holistic medical field to better her skills and knowledge.

Outside of the clinic, Gillian is a mother to 3 boys, loves the outdoors from the mountains to the sea, plays field hockey, enjoys paddle boarding, swims, and runs.
