Bsc (Hon), Lic Ac, MBAcC, DipS, I.I.H.H.T, I.I.S.T, Reiki Master

I have been in private practice since 2004 and run clinics in Bath, Corsham and Tetbury. I feel very lucky to be in the position to help people get well and stay well; it is very rewarding work seeing people benefiting from treatment and improving their quality of life.

I trained in Acupuncture at theĀ College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. My training encompassed both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element styles of acupuncture. This integration of styles enables me to treat specific problems as well as aiding your well-being on a deeper constitutional level. I hold a Licentiate (LicAc) and a BSc(Hons) degree in Acupuncture.

I studied a three-year Shiatsu diploma with the Shiatsu College in Bristol. In addition, I have undertaken a number of specialist courses, including a workshop focusing on working with people with cancer. I have studied Usui Reiki to Master level and beyond with teachers in England and India. I have also trained in other forms of bodywork: Thai, Swedish and Holistic massage, and I practice yoga, Qi Gong and Tai Chi every day.

I may also incorporate sound healing, crystals and guided visualisations into our healing sessions, depending what is relevant and required at the time.

Professional standards

My extensive training in both Shiatsu and Traditional Acupuncture and ongoing professional post-graduate courses has included substantial elements of Western anatomy, physiology and pathology in addition to indepth tuition in Chinese and Japanese medicine.

I am covered by professional indemnity insurance and adhere to a strict code of professional standards and safe practice laid down by the Association of Acupuncture Clinicians


I first became interested in holistic therapies while living in Thailand in the mid-90s; I was drawn to the idea of receiving regular treatment to help maintain my health. I realised how much better it made me feel.

After returning to England I trained in Reiki because I felt I needed something to level out my then stressful office job working on a newspaper. Shortly afterwards I trained in Shiatsu and gave up journalism to focus on holistic therapy. I later completed the three-and-a-half-year Acupuncture degree course. This training gave me an indepth understanding of many common illnesses, enabling me to treat a wide range of conditions tailored to each individual.
