I have a background in both Eastern and Western medical systems having completed post-graduate studies in mental health nursing within the NHS and observed first hand how acupuncture is practised in a hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou, China.  

With oer 20 years' experience as an acupuncturist and a mental health nurse I have developed a deep understanding of emotional health and pharmacology. This allows me to offer support and guidance to patients with emotional difficulties. 

I also have a personal interest in women’s health and nutrition and have been supporting women through the difficulties of fertility issues over the years. I have carried out research on acupuncture for mental health and currently teach and supervise acupuncture students in their new careers.

I continue to develop my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and nutrition attending seminars and keeping up to date with new research and ideas.

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), and the Nursing and Midwifery Council, I am obliged to follow a strict Code of Conduct and Practice.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding your condition and how Chinese medicine may help.

I look forward to hear from you.

What I love most about being an acupuncturist is the variety it brings in understanding human emotions and its causes. Ever since I started practising I have found that each patient brings a new puzzle to solve and I’m always looking for new approaches and ideas to treatment that can be beneficial to my patients.

My clinical and personal experience of acupuncture treatment and the effect it has on emotional wellbeing has led me to research its potential to treat mental health and emotional wellbeing.

I am currently undertaking a MSc research study at City University London to understand how acupuncture helps with emotional wellbeing from the patient’s perspective.

The mechanism of acupuncture is still not well understood and although new research comes out every year, not all the studies are published in the media. The British Acupuncture Council has a section dedicated to research where you can find information for a variety of conditions:
