I originally studied science in great detail, and have a BSc(hons) in microbiology, and an MSc (distinction) in Environmental Science. I have worked in science research, healthcare journalism, and have also taught science up to A level in secondary education. My Acupuncture qualifications include DipAcu and DipNat and MBAcC - I am also a qualified Naturopath.
Areas of Specialism
I enjoy treating everybody and every condition! If I were to state any particular interest it would be the links between mental and physical health. Our emotional state is very important to our physical health and vice versa. Acupuncture recognises and treats both!
I would like to think my personal approach is friendly and relaxed. I have a very inquisitive mind that helps to get to the root cause of a condition, but also consider myself very empathic. I know from personal experience how difficult life can be. How sometimes it seems as if everything has been thrown at you at the same time, as if the world was trying to see just how much you could cope with at once. But I also know that we can get through these times, that we learn from them, that we change as people and become better. Acupuncture helped me and continues to help me; I know that it can do that for you too.
