About me

I am a registered Traditional Acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council, having completed a postgraduate degree at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York. I have also completed a diploma in Reflexology and am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.

In addition to my acupuncture degree, I have also undertaken additional training in a variety of related therapies and specialist areas of treatment (see below). This gives me the skills to treat a very wide range of conditions and to tailor your treatment to your own individual needs and preferences. My particular interest is in combining reflexology with auricular acupuncture.

I have also completed a Mental Health First Aid course to enable me to better support those clients seeking treatment for anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions.

Many people feel a little nervous about having acupuncture treatment for the first time. This is perfectly understandable. To help you feel comfortable, I take particular care to listen to your story and your needs and do everything I can to make your acupuncture or reflexology treatment a positive, rewarding experience.
