Acupuncturist, supervisor and mentor for acupuncture practitioners

During 34 years as an acupuncturist, Isobel has acted as Director of Licentiate in Acupuncture Studies (Lic Ac) at The College of Traditional Acupuncture, and in the last few years has been a consultant in the development of Practitioner Support and Continuing Professional Development programmes.  In 2013 she was elected a Fellow of the British Acupuncture Council.


Between 1964 and 1980, Isobel taught Human Sciences in North America and at Newcastle and Oxford Universities. During a sabbatical year in Canada in 1978 she began studying Chinese Medicine and completed her studies at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in 1981. She has practised continuously since then. From 1983 to 1993, she taught and directed programmes at the CTA and in Canada.For the past 18 years, she has run clinics in Wales while also offering Training in Supervision to acupuncturists in the UK. In 2010, Isobel and Tim Davis opened an acupuncture and Chinese herbal practice at Spectrum where Isobel has been running groups and training for many years. Isobel has participated in professional training at Spectrum and is in the formative psychology clinical study group there.

How Isobel works

One of Isobel’s areas of professional interest is supporting her clients’ health at times of transition. During periods of change, symptoms occur (for example, during adolescence, leaving home, during pregnancy, after childbirth, at retirement, during menopause, following redundancy or after bereavement). Isobel also works with fertility and other gynaecological issues. In the last fifteen years she has brought a humanistic and formative perspective into her practice with acupuncture and supervision clients.
