Colleen grew up in Westport, Co. Mayo, where her love of nature was nurtured by beautiful beaches and a wonderful landscape.
She travelled to many countries to gain experience in different healing modalities. It was in India and Nepal where she felt a great calling to work with people on a deeper level, and trained with several teachers in massage therapy.
When she returned to Ireland, she studied Herbal Medicine, Naturopathy and Nutritional Therapy with College of Naturopathic Medicine for 7 years. Colleen runs her practice from the Body and Mind Health Centre, Westport. She holds short courses in Herbal medicine and Naturopathic Health, and lectures with CNM in Galway and Dublin over the Academic year.
“My aim as a Naturopath and Herbalist is to engage with and educate my patients, to stimulate the vital force that is within us all, and to encourage the capacity to take responsibility for our own healing”
Colleen is a registered and fully insured practitioner who regularly undertakes Continuous Professional Development. She is a member of the Irish Register of Herbalists, who are actively involved in promoting Herbal Medicine and safe practice in Ireland.
