About the Therapist
I have worked almost all my adult life within the caring profession and get an immense amount of satisfaction and pleasure 'looking after' people. My career started as a Registered Nurse in the early 1980s moving into midwifery soon after.
I became aware of 'complementary medicine' about 20 years ago when I found that conventional 'western' medicine struggled to resolve the problem of a 'bad back', and I turned to an osteopath.
That was the start of a long journey exploring complementary therapies and culminated in an application to study acupuncture! My interest in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture was kindled after experiencing the benefits of this ancient therapy. I was astonished to feel so much better without conventional medication: the concept of treating the whole person rather than symptoms alone making perfect sense. I graduated from the Northern College of Acupuncture in York in 2010, following a three year full time course.
In 2011 myself and fellow acupuncturist Jane Marsh, started Hull and East Yorkshire Community Acupuncture (HEY Community Acupuncture), a clinic designed to provide high quality low cost acupuncture; making acupuncture available to a wide spectrum of people.
I decided to leave to leave my Community Midwifery post (in East Yorkshire) in 2012 to work exclusively as an acupuncturist, continuing to work with HEY Community Acupuncture but working additional days at The Wellbeing Centre, in Market Weighton .
I offer both Community acupuncture sessions and private one to one sessions at The Wellbeing Centre in Market Weighton.
