My name is Emma and I’m a hagetisse. That’s an old-fashioned word for wise woman, healer, cunning woman, leech, the herbwife at the edge of the village.

I help them see the stories, taught through upbringing and cultural frameworks, for what they are, recognise the voice of their own intuition and find the strength to follow it, on their way to health and happiness.
