Acupuncture Newcastle under Lyme
My name is Annie and I graduated from Hebei Medical University, China in 1994 with a BSc (Hon) Medicine. My training was in both Chinese and western Medicine and I am a fully qualified registered doctor in China. In the UK I gained a MSc (Distinction) in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
I practised in a University Hospital in China as a Senior Physician from 1994 to 2002 then came to the UK and started my practice in Merrial Street as the first Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Practitioner in Newcastle. I set up another practice in Bridge Street and they merged in 2009.
I have always been interested in the holistic approach to medicine and how the mental stresses of life affect our wellbeing. This lead me to taking a course in Counselling and I furthered my studies at Staffordshire University from 2008 – 2012. I gained an MSc in Psychotherapy and Counselling and became a qualified Counsellor and a member of BACP and ATCM (UK). I have undertaken voluntary work for a local charity as a counsellor, particularly helping people with mental health problems.
In total, I have 19 years experience, with 11 years practice in uk. Over the years I have successfully treated thousands of patients with a wide variety of health problems. Because of my high levels of professional expertise , and caring supportive attitude I have earned a very good reputation within the community. At this moment, the majority of my clients come from recommendation and "word of mouth".
