Clare trained at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, graduating with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in acupuncture. The college is unique in the UK for teaching two different, but complementary styles of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element.
Clare comes from four generations of medical practitioners and her initial interest in medicine was inspired by her grandfather and father's work as doctors. Her particular interest in acupuncture grew from editing books on Chinese medicine, yoga, meditation and herbal medicine.
She has also been deeply influenced by her experience of having had regular acupuncture as preventative treatment for the past 27 years. In addition to her passion for Chinese medicine, she has practised yoga and meditation for over twenty years. The daily practice of these is a great support for her work as an acupuncturist.
Clare was born and brought up in Hampstead. Her first degree is a Masters in Italian from Edinburgh University. She has lived and worked in France and Italy and speaks Italian and French. She is a mother of two, loves walking in nature, enjoying art, literature, dance and opera.
She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAC), the professional body in the UK who represent acupuncturists and is fully insured to practise.
