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.
