Introducing myself: Patricia Worby

Hello. My name is Patricia Worby and I am a health researcher and therapist specialising in holistic health and wellbeing, as well as a gardener/ designer and writer.

A holistic vision

I have many strings to my bow but what unites them all is a quest for knowledge and a need to understand the complexity of the body, mind and the natural world as a holistic entity. I am fascinated by so many areas; the structure and function of the body, the nature of mind and consciousness, emotional health, natural plant medicine and healing, art and design. Being a passionate advocate of education I have devoted my life to learning as much as possible about the underlying processes of what makes us human, and how we can maximise our joy, health and creativity . As a former health scientist I love what science has to say about this and you will find many articles I have written based on my research and some articles are available for download.


Recently I have written a book on stress, the body and unresolved emotions in the creation of disease. I am just about to complete a PhD on mindbody approaches to resolving chronic pain and emotional trauma. Please do get in contact if you find anything on here of interest to you – I love to make contact with like-minded people.

A portfolio career

The pages on this website give you more information on what I do but here are some quick links to my gardening/ garden design, mindbody therapy and specialist ME/Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia websites for the 2 businesses I run: Alchemy Therapies and The Outdoor Room.

Please take a look around and get in contact if you are interested in what I have to say. Happy reading!
