About me

I work with many conditions and my aim is to support patients on their journey to better health, balance and ultimately peace within themselves.

In Chinese Medicine (to which acupuncture belongs) physical, emotional and mental symptoms are the manifestation of an internal imbalance. Somewhere along the line (usually rooted in the past and often relating to stressful events), the body and mind moved away from a more balanced/aligned state and into one of illness, disharmony and disease.

We see the symptom/s as the result of this imbalance and therefore not the underlying problem. The symptom is the sign or the impression of a deeper disharmony.

Through the lens of Chinese Medicine (including its thorough means of diagnosis) and with the use of acupuncture needles, we guide the underlying imbalance back into healthy flow and function which leads to the treatment of the manifested symptom/s be it headaches, digestive complaints, sleep disorders, lower back pain or pain in general, anxiety, depression and many conditions relating to the physical, emotional and psychological spheres.

It goes without saying that conditions and illnesses of a more chronic nature will take longer to treat as they are more deeply embedded within the individual.

Chinese Medicine acknowledges the uniqueness of each person - insomnia in one person can be completely different in another and how it is treated can vary greatly as well. This illustrates the importance of seeing each person as a unique individual and therefore treatment follows suit.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been practicing from The International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) since 2016. I spent two years practising in Croydon at The Wellness Therapy Centre however decided to move closer to home and am now practising from The Forest Row Osteopath Clinic in Forest Row.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
