My background is in Western Medicine and I qualified as a doctor in 2000 from University College London also gaining a BSc in Physiology. I worked as a junior doctor covering a wide range of specialities, including Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Emergency Medicine, for many years before training as a GP. The last eight years of my NHS career were spent working as a
GP in the local area.
In 2018, I decided to change careers and embark on my training as an acupuncturist. I qualified with a Licentiate in Acupuncture from the prestigious International College of Oriental Medicine. My training included Classical Chinese Medicine, Five Element theory and Stems and Branches theory as well as extensive practical training in the ICOM clinic.
I also spent two years living in Shanghai with my family where I was able to learn more about Chinese culture and also achieved a qualification in ‘Comprehensive Chinese’ from Donghua University.
My aim is to use my training in acupuncture together with the wealth of knowledge I have from my medical career to bring patients the best care possible.
