My journey into the health field began over 15 years ago. Firstly as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist where I trained with Trainer and Author Trevor Silvester of The Quest Institute.

Why I chose Acupuncture

Then a trapped nerve took me to try Traditional Acupuncture. The thought of needles being poked into me terrified me. However, having tried various other modalities to no avail this was my last hope. The outcome was that I become hooked and decided straight away that I wanted to help as many people as possible to feel the benefits of Traditional Acupuncture too.

And I soon found out that the needles are super fine and don’t bother me at all.

4 Years Degree Training

So then I signed up to train for four years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. Every class that I attended absolutely blew my mind and resulted in gaining a BSc (Hons) degree in Integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Acupuncture. As a mature student  that was one big achievement that still brings a smile to my face.

Continuing Professional Development

In addition, I continue to embark on regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) delving further into various acupuncture and health related protocols. So in a quest to learn more about what was going on in my body and why it “behaved” the way it did with my environment I enrolled on a course with The Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM). Here I was lucky to be trained by some of the worlds top Functional Medicine Practitioners. This then led me to learning about Genetic/Nutrigenomic Testing.


As a result my experience as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist and Wellbeing Practitioner  entails a broad knowledge of western medicine coupled with Functional Medicine, Cognitive hypnotherapy and Genetic testing. Combined these all enable me to help people for a wide range of conditions to restore and preserve physical and emotional health and wellbeing using a combination of therapeutic skills.

Who Can I Help?

I see people of all ages and from all walks of life in my clinics and have a passion to delve deep into any condition. I will work tirelessly in and out of the treatment room to unearth the root cause of your condition to help you to achieve long term health and wellbeing.
