I’ve been working as an acupuncturist for over 20 years. I love the versatility of acupuncture. It’s an ancient medicine, but it feels modern. And it finds connections between physical and mental health.
I’m trained in massage and I often use Chinese dietary therapy in my practice. I enjoy working with musculoskeletal problems particularly chronic back, neck and shoulder tension.
I have extensive post graduate training and clinical experience in women’s reproductive health, fertility, and IVF/ART support. I am a member of an international group of fertility acupuncturists having completed Naava Carmen’s advanced level diploma in fertility support. I am also a member of the London based ACT network, a group of specialist acupuncturists working with fertility, IVF, pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care.
I completed a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2013, and now divide my working time between acupuncture and psychotherapy. I believe that acupuncture plays a positive role in the management of stress, anxiety, and depression.
I am the founder and managing director of Islington Acupuncture.
I love being able to apply my expertise to help people whatever their situation. For some conditions, Chinese herbs may be of benefit alongside acupuncture or indeed as a stand-alone therapy. There are many aspects to acupuncture treatments and as such interaction between client and practitioner is pivotal. Do contact me to see if I am the right practitioner for you and to discuss how acupuncture and Chinese herbs may be of benefit.
It is very rewarding now treating the grown-up children of patients who initially came to me for help with fertility issues, and I often act as the first port of call for the whole families health issues. Through teaching and supervising Master’s level Chinese medicine students alongside reflective practice I ensure that I continue learning and continue to be inspired by what Chinese medicine can do.
It was my own experience that drew me to acupuncture and to retrain as a practitioner. Having suffered from debilitating migraines since my teenage years, I began having treatment and have enjoyed the benefits ever since. I see acupuncture as a natural and effective approach to keep the mind and body in balance, restore health and optimise vitality.
My practice integrates Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of acupuncture. Whilst Five Element treats the client’s deepest constitutional imbalance, TCM can help a range of health concerns. This combination allows me to support clients with conditions such as pain management, digestive complaints, headaches and migraine, stress related issues such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, auto immune conditions and long Covid symptoms.
My post graduate training and experience has led to a special interest in treating women’s health, fertility, ART/IVF support, pregnancy conditions and post-natal care.
I am a graduate of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and a member of the Acupuncture for Childbirth Team. I hold a diploma in acupuncture for gynaecology, fertility and obstetrics and am currently carrying out further study with The Fertility Support Company with Naava Carmen. I am also qualified in cosmetic acupuncture and LED
I am a qualified acupuncturist and a full member of The British Acupuncture Council, which requires practitioners to adhere to a high standard of codes of safety and conduct.
I hold a BSc in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the University of Westminster in London.
I work as an acupuncturist for an NHS Foundation Trust (Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital) and also at St Joseph’s Hospice. I have treated a large number of patients referred for pain management and various symptoms with complex conditions (cancer, fibromyalgia and many with undiagnosed disorders).
I have found acupuncture to be an effective treatment for many conditions such as: musculoskeletal pains (stiffness, spinal disorders, sciatica, chronic inflammation, tendinopathy, neuropathy, etc), internal pain, chronic fatigue, digestive issues (heartburn, reflux, nausea, discomfort, IBS, etc), menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, etc), menstrual problems (pain, irregularity, premenstrual tension, hormonal imbalances, migraines, etc), anxiety, insomnia, emotional instability, nocturia, palpitations, breathing issues and blood pressure imbalances.
I have trained in women’s health and have treated numerous clients for assisted (IVF) and natural pregnancy. It has been a joy to continue to work with these clients to help minimising symptoms such as oedema, morning sickness and nausea, back pain and sciatica, carpal tunnel, etc., or for relaxation, general wellbeing and labour induction.
I also have a diploma in Ayurveda from the School of Ayurveda and Panchakarma in India and have been providing consultation for the clients regarding diet and lifestyle based on Ayurvedic medicine since 2013. I integrate the knowledge and insight of different schools of medicines to achieve the best result possible for each individual.
For me, the answer to complex health problems is to be found in a simple and gentle approach. I also believe that many chronic issues have their roots in the psyche, and that a course of treatments is effective when it enables the patient to feel more able to confront issues in their life that were previously avoiding. I treat the acupuncture meridians as communication channels and I believe that better communication is the answer to most problems of life. It therefore follows that working with meridians not only improves circulation but also communication amongst the body parts and organs. In turn this resolves symptoms and conditions in the most natural way.
I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Traditional Chinese medicine from Middlesex University London (2008) and a diploma in Shiatsu. I am also a member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (ATCM). I’ve had the opportunity to train with some excellent practitioners in my field in my postgraduate studies. I have extensive experience in treating patients with a wide variety of conditions in different settings and countries as well as for preventative measures.
I particularly love its focus on the mind, body connection and ability to help conditions that have an emotional imbalance at their foundation. Experiencing stress is part of everyday life, but when prolonged or repressed it can have a negative impact on our mental and physical wellbeing, showing up in seemingly unrelated signs and symptoms.
I was drawn to acupuncture after experiencing the benefits myself. I originally sought treatment after a period of insomnia and not only did I see an improvement in my sleep, but also noticed a huge shift in my overall wellbeing, a reduction in stress, and improvements in my digestion. Needless to say I was hooked and decided to retrain myself.
I hold a professional licentiate in acupuncture which is a degree level qualification, and am a member of the British Acupuncture Council. I have also completed further CPD training in male and female fertility with fertility expert Kirsten Wolfe.
I’ve completed extensive postgraduate training, particularly in women’s health, fertility and obstetrics and am experienced in working with individuals at all stages of their fertility journey (including pre-conception and IVF preparation) and beyond. I really enjoy working with complex fertility cases, and am currently studying towards an Advanced Diploma in Fertility with Naava Carmen.
My keen interest in the mind / body connection led me to Dr Gabor Maté and I graduated as a Compassionate Inquiry counsellor in 2019. I believe that the mental strain of today’s hectic and often stressful lifestyles can contribute to health issues – from muscle tension to more complex conditions – and I enjoy working with clients to help alleviate the harmful effects of stress and the toll that this can take on our bodies.
I’ve also carried out additional training in Chinese Therapeutic Massage and I enjoy working with a range of musculoskeletal conditions, I also have an interest in nutrition and I enjoy and may incorporate dietary and lifestyle advice when appropriate, and tailor treatments to the individual, in order to maximise health and wellbeing.
I am also fully trained in cosmetic acupuncture, gua sha and facial massage
As a member of both the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), I’m committed to staying up to date with the latest research (relating to both Chinese & Western medicine) to ensure my knowledge is current and relevant.
