My background in health and social care and academic research underpins the way I work as an acupuncturist. This includes a keen interest in keeping up to date with acupuncture and associated health and wellbeing research developments for the benefit of my patients.
After three years’ full-time degree level study at the International College of Oriental Medicine, I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture. The course provided a thorough grounding in all aspects of acupuncture and its associated philosophy, together with their practical application on patients in the college acupuncture clinic. The study of Western anatomy, physiology and pathology was also a compulsory part of the course.
The ability to relax and achieve regular, restful sleep plays an essential role in helping us all to maintain good health and wellbeing. In today's busy, often stressful world many people are unable to unwind properly and do not get enough good quality sleep. Over time this can lead to a variety of health issues. I have a strong interest in using acupuncture to help people reduce their stress and anxiety levels, achieve better sleep and enjoy greater daytime energy.
As well as my private acupuncture work I treat cancer patients on a voluntary basis each week at two busy Cancer Support Centres in Brighton and Crawley. I find this aspect of my work deeply rewarding and it has helped to broaden my professional experience.
When you receive treatment from me as a fully qualified and insured member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and a practitioner approved by Anxiety UK, you can be assured that your wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything I do.
