After an accomplished and successful career in the Civil Service, I trained in Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine graduating with degree level Licentiate Diplomas in Acupuncture (2002) and Oriental Herbal Medicine (2004) and I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine. More recently I qualified in Hypnotherapy, attaining a Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (2010) and I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Council. I am a full member of all these leading self-regulatory bodies and comply with their codes of conduct and safe practice.
I have also attended numerous postgraduate courses in acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine given by highly respected figures in the world of TCM medicine, including Giovanni Maciocia, Peter Deadman, Jane Lyttleton and Zita West. Whilst my special interest lies in women's health and assisting couples to conceive, I have also acquired significant experience in the treatment of pain, anxiety and depression, headaches and migraines and digestive problems.

I aim to provide the best level of treatment and care for my patients and offer support and understanding.
