I qualified with a First Class Degree in BSc (Hons) Acupuncture following 3 years of studying at the Northern College of Acupuncture.
I have a passion for learning & since graduating I have expanded my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCM) & learnt Japanese Acupuncture, Dr Tan's Balance Method & Paediatric Acupuncture, along with Bio-resonance therapy and Nutrition.
My personal journey with endometriosis, fertility issues &
recurrent miscarriage, led me to acupuncture. It helped me to regain my health when things looked bleak, supported me through two successful pregnancies & helped me to get through severe post natal anxiety after the birth of my second child.
Now as a parent of two, I am always looking for alternative ways to manage our health, which has introduced me to other holistic therapies such as homeopathy and Ayurveda. My children are my greatest teachers & the inspiration behind learning Paediatric Acupuncture.
I am presently advancing my Nutritional training by studying for a Diploma in Nutritional Healing and I am excited to share this new information.
This wide knowledge base enables me to look at health from multiple angles & to create a truly bespoke treatment approach.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP).

It uses natural therapies such as Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Hydrotherapy, Physical Manipulations, Colonic Irrigation, Fasting, Exercise and others, following Naturopathic principles. These principles are kept in mind when a Naturopath takes a case, develops treatment plans and offers maintenance for long term term good health.
