When you come for an appointment, I’ll ensure you understand what is happening throughout, as we work together. The process starts with a comprehensive investigative diagnosis to help any underlying issues to be identified so they can be addressed and not just the symptoms.
All registered acupuncturists are professionally trained and are required to meet and maintain strict professional standards in their work in order to practice, while following ethical conduct rules. Ongoing programmes of continuing professional development (CPD) must be followed to ensure they are currently up-to-date with developments in treatment protocols. For more information about acupuncture and other registered acupuncturists in your area, please refer to the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) website. I have been a Member of the BAcC since its inception and was a member of the Register of Traditional Chinese Medicine before that, one of the original constituent professional bodies forming the BAcC.
I am also a Member of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM), which ensures the highest professional and ethical standards in the provision and prescription of herbal remedies. For more information about the RCHM, please visit their website.
I offer the range of Peridot Essences to clients in addition to my acupuncture and herbal prescriptions and as an integral part of the work I carry out. Flower essences are made in a careful process to capture their energetic imprint, which can have a balancing effect to help with emotional and spiritual issues that might arise before, during, and after pregnancy and other times of transition.
Should you require more information on the Peridot Essences I offer, then please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am always on hand to provide advice about the Peridot Essences that I have available.
I am a Member of the British Acupuncture Council and the UK Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioners. I sought acupuncture treatment and herbal medicine while living in Hong Kong which showed excellent results, so I developed a real passion for this area of traditional Chinese medicine and decided to become qualified as a practitioner. I became an Apprentice to a Chinese Doctor in Hong Kong, which lasted for two years, I then moved to London and continued training for 3 more years where I joined the Register of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Since then I have completed further training and studies in Japanese Kampo Herbal Medicine, which is practised in Japanese hospitals and taught in UK by Gretchen De Soriano, as well as in Japanese Acupuncture taught by Kiiko Matsumoto and Andy Harrop. I have also attended further intensive acupuncture training in the ancient tradition of acupuncture of the Tung family, as taught by Susan Johnson, and Russian medicine with Professor Revenko and Galina Subbotina.
In addition to the above, I have studied in Gynaecology and Obstetrics with Professor Shulan Tang and Professor Zhang Yifang in their gynaecology herbal practice methods as well as training with Giovanni Macioca. I also studied Obstetrics for Acupuncturists at the Royal College of Physicians in 2006 and 2007.
I continue with undertaking training to help with my professional development and incorporate this into my work, ensuring I keep up to date with the latest developments.
Helping women – Over the years, through my work I have been able to help women to stay well and covering all ages from puberty, fertility, menopause and beyond. There have been over 100 babies birthed as a result of my treatments, whether it’s being alone or alongside IVF. This has been a huge privilege for me, to have supported many women.
