I am a traditional acupuncturist (BSc (Hons) LicAc MBAcC) based in Honor Oak Park, South East London, where I run a general acupuncture practice.
I treat a broad range of conditions and my special interest is in women’s health, fertility and hormonal balance. From experience I know that acupuncture has much to offer to women at every stage of their lives, and I am passionate about supporting women on their journeys from puberty, to pre-conception, throughout the whole of the pregnancy and post-birth, to perimenopause and menopause.
I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM), the leading acupuncture college in the UK. Since qualifying I have undertaken extensive specialist postgraduate training in acupuncture for women’s health, including: fertility support, both natural and assisted (IVF), pregnancy, menstrual issues and the menopause.
In early 2019, I successfully completed a year-long postgraduate Diploma in Gynaecology, Fertility and Obstetric Acupuncture. This course covered both the Western and Chinese medical approaches to women’s health and fertility, focusing on current research, best practice and the exploration of complex cases. The in-depth study has helped deepen and refine my knowledge of women’s health and it was a wholly rewarding experience.
I know that when experiencing a health or fertility issue or going through life’s major changes it can affect us emotionally and we might feel vulnerable. I understand how important it is to feel that you are in safe and supportive hands. Therefore alongside treating symptoms and conditions, I offer emotional support and space for you to discuss your concerns.
Acupuncture is a holistic approach and the focus of all my treatments is on optimising overall vitality and quality of life. I see each person as an individual and each treatment is tailored to your particular circumstances and well-being. Accordingly, I often incorporate lifestyle advice and dietary recommendations based on Chinese nutritional therapy.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the Acupuncture Fertility Network and the Acupuncture Childbirth Team (ACT) London.
My acupuncture practice is supported by my life-long interest in various healing practices, including yoga, qigong and mindfulness meditation, and I am also a qualified yoga teacher.
