Personal and Family: £200/day
Take advantage of my skills with a home visit evenings, weekends or daytime. The choice of what I can help you with is yours. I charge by time so 4hours (half day £140) and 7hours (whole day £200). I generally do less planning for this with herbal medicine consultations and massage the normal activities with perhaps garden design included.
Organisations: £400/ day
I charge by time so 4hours (half day £140) and 7hours (whole day £200). However with groups some planning is needed, maybe a visit to you beforehand and as a rule I double the fee to reflect planning. This works well for workshops. I can discuss price when multiple days/ regular bookings made and charities without money please still get in touch.
Corporate Days: £600/day
Whole day workshops, massage, outdoor walks, consultations as well as facilitating Corporate Social Responsibility Days Out. As well as all this I write a report, take photos and include a celebration element to the day. Ideal for team morale. Based on 10 people but final quote on application.
Herbaculture Butler Rate £10,000/ year
With an annual fee paid up front, you get regular massage, herbal healthcare, mental support, family welfare, garden services as well as PA, DIY or whatever you need help with. Ideal for time poor, cash rich clients. I can also support you on holidays and business trips, based on 1 day/ week.
HALF DAY: Herbal Medicine consultation 1 hour, dispensing herbs 15mins, Massage 1 hour, gardening 1 hour 45 mins.
Please Note: Medicines up to £50 are included in the deal. Paperwork, dispensing and posting/ bagging all takes time. I only account 15 mins for this.
Cup of tea and introductory chat, Travel time and petrol are all extras that take up my time. I allow for all of this on the initial visit and like a relaxed atmosphere but expect any future visits to have a clear plan for the time taken
WHOLE DAY AT WEEKEND: Herbal Medicine for 2 adults and 2 children and dispensing (3.5 hours) Odd jobs about the house (1.5 hours) Garden redesign and 3 hour gardens with possible plant identification and activities for the kids about nature.
I can design a plan for your garden, for your lifestyle, diet and overall health so consider this and make the most of my time. I hope that it helps to get things on an upward spiral for you.
Being a medical herbalist is fun, Who else gets to go for a walk, pick some weeds, make medicines, listen to people and be able to help, see the benefits of the herbs and then go for a walk again.
I have been asked to do workshops in schools, on allotments, at conferences and in museums. I love getting phone calls asking if I can do something fun, I nearly always say yes. When considering payment, please bear in mind that preparation can take a few hours, travel, materials used and if required a report can be written.
Planning Time may be added on top of price.
1 hour £75
Half Day £140
1 Day £200
