Most of the people who visit my website do so because they are suffering pain. They want relief or wish to manage their condition better. Others wish to improve their general health through a regular maintenance programme.

If they are considering treatment they will wish to know if I am experienced and competent.

Professionally, I am qualified to practice Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Manipulative therapy. I also hold an Acupuncture Masters qualification with the College of Traditional Acupuncture, Warwick, that followed 5 years postgraduate study and research. I am registered with the Health Professions Council and the British Medical Acupuncture Society. I have been practicing since 1990.

During my career in healthcare, I have worked in hospitals, health centres, physical rehabilitation centres, and NHS practices. I have a special interest in pain management and spinal conditions.

For those who are statistically minded I estimate I have carried out over 90,000 acupuncture needling procedures.

Between 2004 and 2006 I was employed as an acupuncturist by HRH the Prince of Wales.

I have also taught in the U.K and abroad. I am an associate teacher with Oxford Brookes University. In 2005 I became a faculty member of the College of Traditional Acupuncture, Warwick, where I lectured in clinical skills and worked as an assessor.

In 2005 I set up the charity Physiotherapy Volunteers Overseas. The aim of the charity is to teach local health care professionals, in a number of countries, simple rehabilitation and pain relief programmes. I have practiced in China, Mongolia, Indonesia, Honduras, Burma and Thailand.

Presently, I divide my time between my practice in Suffolk and volunteering work.

I hope you enjoy my website and if I can answer any questions about your condition, or about my work, please do not hesitate to contact me.
