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 discovered acupuncture by experiencing its powerful effects first-hand, when I visited an acupuncturist feeling low and out of sorts. Such were the results on my overall health and wellbeing that I decided to retrain and study to become an acupuncture practitioner, so that I could help others to experience the benefits.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and graduate of the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, and am committed to helping each individual achieve their potential in mental, physical and emotional health. I practice an integrated style of Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as I believe that combining the two systems tackles both the symptoms and the root cause of the concern, enabling the body to truly rebalance and repair itself.
I have a particular interest in pain relief, fertility and stress management and have completed further graduate study in fertility acupuncture, IVF, gynaecology, cosmetic acupuncture and acupuncture for emotional wellbeing. I believe that the mental strain of today’s hectic and often stressful lifestyles can often contribute to health issues and I enjoy working with clients to reduce the harmful effects of stress, bringing about balance and a renewed sense of vitality.
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.
I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2008, with a degree in Acupuncture. After graduation I felt that I wanted to develop my understanding of acupuncture before going into practice and spent 4 months as an assistant at the acupuncture clinic in The Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, China before moving to Yangshuo to study Chen-style Taijiquan.
On my travels, I had picked up a book called ‘The Practice of Japanese Acupuncture and Moxibustion’ by Ikeda Masakazu. The contents of the book really resonated with me as it was a step towards understanding how the classics can be applied to clinical practice. It was this knowledge that I was looking to understand and that had led me to travel East. In September 2010 I moved to Tokyo and started working in a busy clinic in central Tokyo continued to practice in Tokyo until 2017, returning to the UK in 2018.
I feel that my work as an acupuncturist is to support and educate patients in understanding how to use their inner wisdom to connect their mind and body in order to access their own innate capacity to heal.
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 received my education at Middlesex University London, a course established by professors from Beijing and Nanjing universities of TCM. I graduated from their 4-year BSc program in TCM, and a year later gained a MSc degree in TCM. Aside from years of practice spent at the University Acupuncture clinic, my degree programme included placements in the pain clinics of Whittington and Royal Free hospitals, as well as working in the community clinic for drug and alcohol addiction patients.
Since graduating, I have been developing my skills and expertise in the field of Fertility. After completing a number of further postgraduate courses, I gained a qualification to join the Acupuncture Fertility Network. I have practiced in private clinics, volunteered for the World Medicine project at the Grenfell site, and I am currently a Maternity Acupuncturist at Whittington Hospital. I offer treatments for male and female infertility and recurrent miscarriages, pregnancy and postpartum conditions, menstrual disorders, and menopausal syndrome. I am also experienced in pain management, insomnia, stress and anxiety disorders, migraines, and aiding smoking cessation.
