My professional training to become a General Practioner, awakened my interest in naturopathy. In addition to my qualifications to practise as a General Practitioner and a Doctor of Naturopathy, I trained and qualified in Traditional Chinese Medicine wtih some of the world's leading Medical Societies. 

I have been running my own practice with a focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 25 years.
