My passion for Acupuncture began with wanting to be part of a process to facilitate healing and build peace within individuals. This awareness came about after almost ten years of working in several countries in the field of political and conflict analysis where I worked towards mitigating poverty and conflict. Consequently I felt, rather than working in the spheres of national and international politics, working on inner harmony for outward wellbeing was a much more rewarding and fulfilling life path.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture (Bsc) from the International College of Oriental Medicine and a diploma in acupuncture (DipAcu) from the Devi Clinic in Colombo, Sri Lanka. I also hold qualifications in teaching yoga and reiki from the Sivananda ashram in India.
I am a fully accredited and insured member of the British Acupuncture Council.
My working style is to combine the skills from my previous career of professionally engaging with people from diverse walks of life, with the care, sensitivity and kindness that I believe are essential for a conducive healing environment. As a practitioner, this ancient art of healing never ceases to amaze me with its potential. It is so rewarding to witness how people (sometimes with chronic ailments) benefit so dramatically both physically and emotionally from acupuncture which is why I love what I do!
