About me

I specialise in acupuncture for fertility, IVF support, chronic pain and stress related illness. Acupuncture has grown in popularity and more people are experiencing the health benefits for themselves. The press have reported on the many positive aspects of acupuncture especially in the treatment of fertility and back pain.

Covent Garden Acupuncture is situated in the Friends Meeting House next door to Saint Martins Lane Hotel and just 3 minutes walk from Leicester Square tube. Here you will find a peaceful, relaxing treatment clinic at the hub of Covent Garden.

I have been a practising complementary health therapist for 20 years. Prior to this I worked in the City for a large oil company for over 10 years. My experience in complementary healthcare has given me the opportunity to work with many high profile organisations and charities. I have worked with the Complementary Health Trust at various hospitals, hospices and clinics in and around central London. Most of this time was spent working alongside patients with cancer and immune related illnesses. For a number of years I was a therapist at London Lighthouse, now part of the Terence Higgins Trust in West London. I have also worked for two 5 star Spa's The Mandarin Oriental, Knightsbridge and The Dorchester, Park Lane.

In 2007 I set up private practice in Central London, I have a keen interest in how acupuncture can help with stress related illness in the workplace and the integration of acupuncture for the treatment of infertility. I continue to attend regular workshops and courses to keep me updated on current trends within complementary health care.
