With a GP and a teacher as parents, I was in many ways bound to end up educating and helping patients achieve optimum health.
Having had a fair few injuries myself over the years I have learnt (occasionally the hard way) the importance of fixing and rehabilitating the root issue and not just patching up the symptoms. To this end I have trained extensively in paediatrics, pregnancy, western acupuncture, treatment of the athlete and Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT).
I enjoy treating all ages, from newborn to great grandparents, and writing up individual treatment programs for everyone. At a previous practice I headed up the Sports Injury Clinic and love tracking down the cause, no matter how complicated.

During my teens I suffered from severe headaches and general ill health I decided enough was enough. I decided to take my health into my own hands and became passionate about healthy living.
Having seen how complementary therapies work hand in hand with mainstream medicine during my childhood in Asia I decided to go into chiropractic to help others that were in my position.
After studying for 5 years at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic I moved to Brighton and Hove. Since moving here I have work hard to help those who need it, becoming invested in each patient.
I have undertaken extra training since graduation in the care of both pregnant mothers and babies becoming certified in the Webster technique. I have found my sessions with these groups some of the most joyful and interesting I have had.
I find medical dry needling alongside chiropractic and many other techniques useful to get patients back on track and keep them improving in their health and happiness.
Growing up I was always fascinated with healthcare and when I realised the therapeutic potential of manual therapy I was sold! Soon after, I packed up my bags and studied for 4 years at the AECC University College in Bournemouth and have never looked back. After struggling with hip pain for years as a teenager, the relief I experienced from getting chiropractic treatment only reassured me that I had chosen the right path. During my clinical year at university, I immensely enjoyed working with a broad range of ages and characters, the challenges they presented with and learning how to create individual treatment programs. I have always found it fulfilling to watch my patients get back into enjoying the things they love and continue to improve on their health journey.
Upon the completion of my degree, I am now a registered chiropractor with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and a member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA). My range of treatment techniques include spinal manipulative therapy, soft tissue techniques, creating individualised home exercise programmes and advising patients on adjusting their lifestyle to benefit their health.
I'm thrilled to have returned back home and I serving my community here in Southwick!
I’ve always wanted to make a difference with whatever career I took and with an uncle who also practices as a chiropractor; seeing what a difference chiropractic care made to his patients, I knew I wanted to follow in his footsteps.
4 years at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic has given me a real appreciation for holistic healthcare and I’m very passionate about helping my patients not only get out of pain but getting back into the things they love.
I have specific interests in sports injuries and rehabilitation (having picked up my fair share of injuries in both hockey and the gym) but I enjoy meeting and treating everyone.
