My Training

My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the Five Element approach. This means that I will consider your main health problem and any symptoms you are currently experiencing, together with a holistic approach to you as an individual. Treatment then is individual to you and will aim at targeting the root cause, not just your symptoms. I may also give you simple lifestyle and/or nutrition advice based on Chinese Medicine principles if appropriate.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. British Acupuncture Council members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority which is a government body set up to regulate health and social care providers, and is accountable to Parliament.

I work from clinics in Westcott, Rottingdean and East Horsley and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover. I am also registered with the relevant councils.

Last of all, and I think most importantly, I am passionate about what I do. In part because this field is absolutely fascinating but mainly because there is no greater satisfaction than seeing someone feel better.

If you are wondering whether acupuncture could be beneficial for you, feel free to get in touch with any questions, either via email (, or by booking a free 20 mins call (07855835425). I look forward to hearing from you.
