What drew me to Acupuncture is its ability to empower a person to find a way to heal. It lets the person take responsibility for their own health and well being. Acupuncture is a beautiful medicine which heals the whole person supporting us to come into balance and harmony. This medicine nourishes our very essence, restoring our vital force, our Qi. It is an effective evidence based medicine.
I have been in practice since 2000 after studying Acupuncture in China and in the UK. I qualified from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou and then did a two year post graduate training in Paediatric Acupuncture with Julian Scott and Dr Gascoigne.
As well as a general practice I also felt drawn to helping those with fertility problems consequently I became an affiliated fertility Acupuncturist with Zita West and was one of the founding affiliates in 2008.
Good health for all! Being a member of ACMAC means I can offer Acupuncture to those on low income and I hold a 'pay according to your means' clinic in Abergavenny.
Prior to training in Acupuncture I was the Director of a children's charity for black and minority ethnic children with chronic illness and disabilities. My first 'job' was as a street performer......... I hold a degree in Drama and post grad MA in social youth and community work (1995) etc. I am a Shamanic Practitioner/ Teacher of 35 years experience.
In my 'spare time', I can be found in woodland, 'wild wooding'. Planting oak trees and sitting around the fire.
