Sophie began her career in nursing, gaining a Batchelor of Nursing Honours degree in 2000. She has worked in many fields including trauma orthopaedics and general surgery. It was after a period of being unwell Sophie discovered Acupuncture and after successful treatment she was fascinated to find out more about this ancient form of medicine.

She is classically trained in 5 Element Stems and Branches and TCM( Traditional Chinese Medicine).

She has a special interest in women’s health including the sometimes difficult journey through menstruation, fertility, childbirth and menopause. Sophie has worked with many women who have been through the trauma of miscarriage and uses acupuncture and massage to assist the body, mind and spirit to heal.
Sophie also has a keen interest in mental health issues such as depression and anxiety and has helped many clients improve their quality of life through the balancing properties of Acupuncture.

Sophie lives in East Sussex and really enjoys walking with her family and 2 dogs in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
