About Wendy

wendy2Acupuncture

I love the work that I do and have been a fully qualified acupuncture practitioner for over fifteen years having graduated from the College of Traditional Acupuncture in 1998. Prior to that I was a nurse for over twenty years and I have always loved offering care and support to my patients. It was my desire to ‘be there for them’ which led me into complementary medicine. Having felt the benefits of acupuncture myself I decided to undertake a comprehensive three year period of study in order to graduate as a Traditional Acupuncturist and work full time in my own practice. I have always found acupuncture to be a wonderful, non-invasive and safe form of medicine which allows me to care for each patient as a unique individual that I can help on the road to increased health and well being. It is a system of medicine to which I am totally committed and which has changed my life.

A note about professional standards…..

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). The BAcC maintains standards of education, ethics and practice to ensure the health and safety of the public. All BAcC members are bound by the Code of Ethics and the Code of Practice and are committed to providing the highest standards of care. The Code of practice, compiled in consultation with the Department of Health, provides guidelines on clinical facilities and hygiene; the Code of Ethics is concerned with issues of professional conduct. The BAcC provides Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance for its members, and it is a requirement that I hold a current First Aid certificate..

I am committed to my work and continue to seek opportunities to further my knowledge and professional expertise. I have undertaken a course of post-graduate study, leading to an Advanced Certificate in Five Element Acupuncture. I continue to attend regular post graduate study covering all aspects of acupuncture treatment and have also attended courses with Zita West in the speciality of fertility & pregnancy.
