The current Bach Centre team


Judy Ramsell Howard is head of the Bach Centre. A trained nurse, health visitor and midwife, she has been here since the mid-eighties, when her father John Ramsell asked her to come and help run the Centre.

Judy pioneered the first practitioner courses in the early 1990s and has been involved in just about every aspect of the Centre's work. She is a trustee of the Dr Edward Bach Healing Trust and was personally trained by John in the making of mother tinctures.

Judy has written several books on the remedies. She has two children, Sam and Fay, and lives in Warborough, about two miles from the Centre.


Stefan Ball started full time work at the Centre in 1996 - although before that he helped occasionally with translation work and other bits and pieces.

Stefan has written several books on the remedies. He oversees educational and assessment standards for all Bach Centre-approved courses and runs the Bach Foundation International Register. He also runs the computers - including writing and HTML-ing these web pages.

Stefan lives a mile away in Wallingford, and has three children: Alexandra, Madeleine, and Ethan.


Emma Broad is the Bach Centre gardener, responsible for keeping the garden tidy and not at all neat.

Emma has a keen interest in wildlife gardening. Before coming to Mount Vernon in 2003 she worked for the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust, one of the main wildlife and nature conservation organizations in this part of England.

She is a fund of knowledge about the flowers and the garden, and always willing to show a visitor around and point out the remedy plants.


For many years in the 1980s and 1990s Keith Howard was the main remedy maker at the Centre, having been trained to do this by John and Judy.

These days Keith is involved in planning and carrying out conservation work in the garden.
