I have been working as an acupuncturist for over 20 years. I enjoy working with a range of different people and health problems. I have a lot of positive experience using acupuncture for natural fertility, supporting women through IVF programmes, and in pregnancy. I also like working with muscular and joint pain, particularly long-term pain of the neck and shoulders. I am also a trained masseur, and I think the combination of massage and acupuncture can be very effective to release muscle contraction.
I also have a lot of experience using acupuncture to help people to manage stress, anxiety and depression. I believe that acupuncture can play a valuable role in psychological health. I completed a master’s degree in counselling and psychotherapy 5 years ago, and that knowledge and experience has influenced my acupuncture practice.
I have also worked as an assistant lecturer, teaching massage to students at the University of Westminster. In 2000 I founded a complementary health clinic in Belsize Park, where I worked for 10 years, combining management with a busy acupuncture and herbal medicine practice. In 2017 founded Islington Acupuncture. I split my week between acupuncture and psychotherapy work.
I love that acupuncture is a truly holistic medicine where the treatments are adapted to the individual and their needs. I enjoy meeting different people and working with them to create an individualised treatment to best suit their requirements. My treatments incorporate acupuncture, holistic massage and Chinese dietary therapy.
I achieved a first-class honours degree in Chinese medicine from the University of Westminster. I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council and a qualified massage therapist.
To nurture my learning I regularly attend continual professional development courses and events. This ensures I keep up with the latest research advancements and I consistently develop my skill set, in order to provide the best possible treatment for my patients.
I am a firm believer in integrative healthcare and I welcome collaboration between different healthcare providers. This stems from my clinical experience within an NHS chronic pain clinic where I witnessed first-hand the benefits of combining acupuncture alongside more conventional treatment approaches.
I have been an Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbal Practitioner for over 20 years and I a member of the British Acupuncture Council. My experience over these years includes working in a hospital Kunming China treating both in and out-patients, working alongside GP’s in their surgeries, working in a drug and alcohol centre helping patients recover from their addiction and in a HIV/AIDS clinic.
I specialise in hormonal problems from the start of the menarche to menopause, fertility assisted programs including couples going through IVF and ICSI treatments and regularly treats for pain such as bad backs, migraines and many musculoskeletal problems including Fibromyalgia and M.S.
I have worked with a wide scope of conditions and, with 30 years in the health profession, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in many fields, successfully helping my patients in the best way possible.
I am extremely passionate about health and about maximising the human body’s remarkable potential for self healing from the inside out. I strongly believe that the key to good heath lies in a preventative and holistic approach which takes into account the body as a whole, views each individual as absolutely unique, addresses the root of illness rather than just its symptoms, and in which nutrition plays an essential role.
I trained as a Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and am fully registered with the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am strongly committed to my ongoing professional development, and consistently keep up to date with a fast growing field of research through regular attendance at relevant professional courses and ongoing peer exchanges and discussions.
My aim is to support people achieve their health goals through a holistic approach using food, supplements and life-style changes. I work with people with a range of conditions including autoimmune disorders, stress and fatigue, thyroid conditions and other hormonal imbalances, mental health, irritable bowel syndrome, and varied digestive dysfunctions.
I am committed to embracing and promoting health for myself and anyone else who is keen to improve their wellbeing and feel abundantly vibrant!
