Aftercompleting a three-year full-time degree course at the International College of Oriental Medicine in East Grinstead, I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture.
I treat people for a broad range of health issues. These include specific symptoms like muscular and joint pain, poor sleep, headache, digestive and menstrual problems, or ongoing health conditions such as asthma, arthritis, IBS, migraine and eczema. I also treat patients who choose acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution, help with emotional issues, or because they just feel generally unwell.
I am inspired by the holistic approach that acupuncture takes to patient carethrough its emphasis on thorough assessment and diagnosis, followed by therapeutic treatments tailored to support individual needs. I love what I do and always aim to give my clients effective help to improve their health and wellbeing.
My previous public sector career in the field of health and social care gave me lengthy experience of supporting people back to work from illness, injury and emotional distress. In 2003 I completed PhD research into the effective management of work-related psychological trauma in the UK police service. This greatly deepened my understanding of the ways in which the mind-body connection can affect a person’s health and wellbeing.
I am fully committed to continual professional development and I regularly attend acupuncture training events throughout the year to update and deepen my skills and knowledge.
