Developed and refined for thousands of years

I am a UK registered nurse and midwife . I have a BSc (hons) in traditional acupuncture from the Northern College of Acupuncture in York and have trained in medical acupuncture with the British Medical Acupuncture Society. 

Acupuncture has benefits for a wide range of conditions with numerous approaches. 

I predominantly see clients for conditions relating to fertility, pregnancy and women’s health. This includes, optimising natural fertility, support during assisted conception, IUI, IVF and ICSI. Throughout pregnancy I can help with threatened miscarriage, nausea and vomiting, anxiety and depression, pelvic girdle pain, restless legs, reflux, birth preparation, breech presentation and an unstable lie. Acupuncture can help to reduce the chance of post dates pregnancies and may be suitable for clients facing a planned induction of labour. 

I have completed additional training relating to menopause with the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) and in managing the menopause with acupuncture.

Acupuncture can help  to support women throughout the menopause transition and beyond.

Studies have found acupuncture may relieve hot flashes, depression and anxiety, sleep disturbances, osteoporosis, and cognitive decline. ( It can also help headaches and migraines.

Relief & healing

Acupuncture treatment affects your whole being as well as your symptoms. So, as the condition being treated improves you may notice other health problems resolving too and an increased feeling of well-being everywhere.

Acupuncture results in the body producing natural substances (such as pain-relieving endorphins). It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture. It has been found that numerous conditions can be successfully treated with Acupuncture, including Chronic Back Pain, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Knee Pain, IBS, Sinusitis, Sports Injuries, Menstrual Problems, Migraine and Anxiety, and the studies into Acupuncture continue.  


There’s no better evidence than other people’s experience.

I had 4 sessions of acupuncture with Anne and cannot recommend highly enough. I had zero expectations of any help but decided to try acupuncture due to perimenapause symptoms- hot flushes and a chaotic cycle. After the first treatment I noticed a reduction in hotness and after all four treatments my cycle was back to a 4 weekly pattern which helped me manage my expectations e.g not drinking alcohol when my period was happening. The effects have lasted and I feel much better 6 months later, not least because I managed to find help without using hormone treatments. Anne is really professional and calm and confident in the treatments she offers. Her lengthy experience as a nurse is really reassuring, and her Christian faith is clear through all the healing she offers.
I went to Anne because I had long standing pain in both my knees which was impacting on my day to day living. Anne treated me with acupuncture and over a period of four weeks she managed to get me almost pain free! My sleeping has improved and I can enjoy walking the dogs again. I would not hesitate to recommend Anne, she is kind, professional, caring and goes above and beyond to help find the right combination of treatments. Nothing is too much trouble and you will leave feeling that you have had the best care possible!
