The Bristol/Cornwall Practice

Belle Benfield: Sensory Herb Practitioner

Health and Wellness Coach and Creative Arts Specialist

Belle Benfield is a sensory herbalist and practicing artist.  She is a Sensory Solutions Apprenticeship graduate and has been working closely with Karen and Fiona since 2011.  Since 2009, she has lived in Cornwall, working with plants on the coast paths, in the hedges and on the moors.  She approaches herbal medicine as an art - working creatively with plants and her patients to find solutions to health and lifestyle issues.  She is currently working in Cornwall and Bristol and can be booked to run workshops on integrating herbal medicine into your life, herb foraging walks or for one to one health consultations.
Belle’s art practice explores ways in which we can build resilience to austerity and the ongoing assault on our natural environment by developing the relationship between the plants that grow around us (or that we cultivate), our bodies and well‐being. She has a background in delivering creative community-based projects and is happy to discuss ideas you might have about creative events, installations or residencies that aim to get people engaged with plants and growing food and medicine.


One to one health consultation : £40

The consultation fee does not include the cost of the herbs which will usually be £7-£10 per week.


Creative events, artist residencies or workshops can be tailored to individual needs from £150-450 per day.
