I was born and raised in New Zealand and have lived in the UK more than 20 years
I love travelling and started at a young age, ending up working in Taiwan teaching English. There I learned to speak Chinese and developed a knowledge of and interest in Chinese culture. This led to me to travel around China learning more about the people and how they think. I was and still am fascinated by the ideas in ancient China especially as they relate to nature and health.
I live in the lovely village of Freshford with my wife who is a homeopath and counsellor. We often treat people together who then benefit from our range of skills especially in issues such as male and female infertility, and feel a male/female perspective really complements each other.
How I found acupuncture
I was inspired to study Acupuncture when I was successfully treated as I recovered from a bout of malaria in South America. I carried on having Acupuncture when I returned to the UK and felt very nourished and enriched by the 5 Element treatment that I received. This inspired me to train as an acupuncturist in order to be able to help others to feel more in balance and achieve their potential.
I studied at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading graduating in 1996. It was a fascinating and comprehensive training covering Chinese Medicine and Philosophy as well as Anatomy, Physiology and Western Medicine that took 3 years.
As soon as I started the course I felt very much at home and really loved learning about this amazing medicine. Since then I have worked with clients with a wide range of conditions ranging from fertility to sciatica. I feel very privileged to be able to help people live a healthier and happier life.
I work at a GP clinic in Corsham and believe that acupuncture works well with the NHS ana as a stand alone treatment. There are conditions that we are trained to be aware will need GP/ hospital diagnosis and treatment and many clients come to me while being treated by their doctor and on the doctors’ recommendation.
I see acupuncture as a complementary therapy and it is great to have the opportunity to share knowledge and learn from each other I also work in multi-practice clinics at Neal’s Yard in Bath and The Porch Surgery Corsham.
