I am a fully qualified, traditional acupuncturist. I work from a quiet, relaxing acupuncture clinic just outside of Cobham, Surrey. I am a passionate believer in acupuncture and treat all age groups with a wide variety of conditions and symptoms.
Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture from The Acupuncture Academy: a three and half year degree level course accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board.

I have a special interest in treating fertility, pregnancy, babies, children and teenagers. I have completed a post-graduate specialist diploma in Paediatric Acupuncture. I offer acupuncture as an effective, gentle and safe treatment for babies and children of all ages. I offer both child-friendly needle and needle-free techniques. It can be used in cases of both acute and chronic illness.
As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. British Acupuncture Council members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority which is a government body set up to regulate health and social care providers and is accountable to Parliament.
My clinic is licensed by Guildford Borough Council and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.
Many children are concerned that acupuncture maybe painful but as the needles are flexible and about as thick as two human hairs there is usually only a very slight sensation as it enters the skin.
Your child may be happy to try needles once I have gained their trust. However, there are a number of alternative treatment methods which are effective and do not involve the insertion of needles. This means that I will be able to provide the treatment that your child needs, in a way which is acceptable to them. The methods I might use include:
Each child who comes to the clinic will need a slightly different approach and different method of treatment. Each treatment is tailored to suit the nature and needs of your child. Treatment needs to be both effective and a positive experience for the child.
