Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Infertility Support and Acupuncture
My experience of Acupuncture began 20 years ago in Berkeley, California. I was suffering from severe abdominal pain due to pelvic surgery, and was treated by a Dr. Weiss, a nice Jewish doctor who had studied for many years in China. Dr. Weiss successfully treated my condition using a combination of Acupuncture and herbal medicine. On my return home to Chicago, the western Doctors were amazed at the results.
When I returned to live in England, I discovered that one of the best Acupuncture Colleges in the World was actually on my doorstep, - 'The Traditional College Of Five Element Acupuncture', founded by Professor J.R. Worsley. Being so inspired, I studied and attained my BA Hon's in Acupuncture and I am now a Member of the British Acupuncture Council. I am also a Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and member of the B.A.C.P.
My particular area of interests are in fertility treatment and pregnancy support, pain management and depression. I like to see results pretty quickly and find that when treating pain the effects are almost immediate.
I will make house visits if it is difficult for someone to make it into the practice. I also offer varying rates for students and OAP's.
My greatest achievement has been in the treatment of back pain.
Counselling & Psychotherapy
I would describe my approach to counselling as integrated, using a combination of theories. My original training was in person centred counselling and I find this ethos underpinning all of my work, especially when working on an emotional level with my clients, I went on to train in CBT and Humanistic approach. I practice both short and long term counselling regularly reviewing goals along the way, often with short term work I have found that solution based theory is most beneficial .I have worked for over 5 years with Cruse bereavement care at the Earlsdon Coventry Branch, and i am an accredited bereavement counsellor, I have also worked with D.A.C.S which deals with domestic abuse and violence so have specialist training in this area along with anger management training.
I am also a fully qualified Acupuncturist for over 10 years and am very aware of Mindfulness a practice that is now being used frequently in counselling and was originally a Buddhist concept. I find this concept tremendously beneficial when working with depression and Addiction. My aims are to help clients attain their chosen goals and provide a safe place for them to explore options and test new found self confidence.
