I trained and qualified as an acupuncturist at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, receiving a BSc from one of the largest and most well respected institutions for acupuncture training in Europe. I am a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council, the UK’s main regulatory body for the safe practice of traditional acupuncture.
I am continually developing my professional practise through further study, acupuncture skills practise and personal supervision. I have undertaken additional training in Facial Acupuncture, Fertility, Gynaecology and Obstetrics. This year (2018) I qualified as an Advanced Fertility Practitioner. I am have a Level 1 certificate in Counselling Skills and Practice.
Although I treat a broad range of conditions my particular interest is in fertility and gynaecology. It was during my first pregnancy I discovered the benefits of acupuncture and have used it ever since. Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat many of the side effects of hormonal imbalances, in conception, pregnancy, birth, menstrual cycles and menopause. Instead of treating just the symptoms it can effectively get to to the root of the imbalance. For me acupuncture is natural and effective way to stay well and survive the challenges of a busy life with three young children. I also lived and worked in China for three years, where I learned first-hand about the day-to-day benefits of regular acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
