“Colette has been such a positive influence in my life throughout my fertility journey. My husband and I were very close to starting IVF. We had been trying to convince for a while and I began seeing Colette during my journey. As a Teacher my job is very stressful and this had totally impacted on my body. Colette worked with me to help me relax and conceive naturally. She was so encouraging, positive, caring and kind. Just before we were going to start IVF I conceived naturally. I was over the moon! Fast forward 12 months and I began trying for baby number 2. I just saw Colette once before conceiving naturally again. Now at 7 months pregnant with my second baby Colette is always checking up on me. I cannot recommend Colette enough. She has done so much for me and more. It isn't just about being another patient for her. She really goes above and beyond and every experience is so personal. I will never forget the positive impact Colette has had on me. Thank you so much!“

    Colette has a calm and relaxing approach. She explains everything she does beforehand and puts you at ease. She has helped me so much with my shoulder pain due to scoliosis that I wouldn’t be able to carry on my everyday life in the same manner without her. I would highly recommend using her as an Accupuncturist.

    Colette is a kind and compassionate practitioner, who works in a holistic manner. She supported me throughout IVF cycles and was willing to be flexible with appointments to help me fit them around work. I am an NHS consultant and what I really appreciate about Colette is that she works in an evidence-based manner and works ethically. I am now pregnant naturally and I am sure that Colette’s contribution helped me positively in achieving this.

    I decided to start acupuncture as I discovered I was suffering from endometriosis and required IVF in order to get pregnant. I found Colette to be extremely knowledgeable and supportive throughout the process. She was able to provide me with advice on my diet and lifestyle choices which I think really benefited me. I found the acupuncture to be really relaxing and wholeheartedly believe it contributed towards my successful first round of IVF.

    I received acupuncture treatment for my IVF treatment which was needed due to suffering from endometriosis. I found the treatment to be extremely beneficial both mentally and physically. Colette was really helpful in providing me with advice and support for improving my diet and lifestyle choices which I don’t doubt contributed along with the acupuncture to my success in IVF treatment first round. I would not hesitate in seeing Colette again in the future.

    I started seeing Colette to help with my diagnosis of PCOS and support my fertility journey. The acupuncture was relaxing, and I am sure supported my medical treatment which resulted in becoming pregnant. Mostly I really believe the acupuncture calmed down my nervous system and helped me deal with the stress of infertility and in general have a more relaxed and happy outlook. Colette's calm nature, kind reassuring words, steady approach, years of fertility experience, advice on diet & your overall well being with methods in dealing with anxiety and stress, combined with my doctor was the perfect combination to assist with a pregnancy. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Colette to anyone.

    I initially went to see Colette, as I was interested in the holistic approach to boosting fertility. A close family member recommended her and it was important to me that she was a trusted and approved acupuncturist. Colette supported me both physically and emotionally through many months of tests, which finally led to a successful cycle of IVF. I left her sessions feeling relaxed, calm and with a positive outlook on my upcoming treatments. I feel she went above and beyond her duty of care, messaging me in between sessions checking to see how I was doing. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone embarking on trying to get pregnant either naturally or through assisted fertility. As a GP myself I will definitely be referring patients to Colette. I am very grateful for all that she has done for me.

    Just three months after seeing Colette, my wish came true, I fell pregnant! I was so shocked to see that positive test, I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. To any of you considering having acupuncture, I would fully recommend Colette. Her service is professional, personal and successful! It’s not just the acupuncture that helps, it’s the person behind the treatment that makes all the difference. Thank you again Colette for all you have done for me and my family, you helped make my dreams a reality. At the age of 37, and after nearly two years of trying to conceive a second baby, during which I had two miscarriages, I had started to lose hope altogether in being able to fall pregnant again. I was at a real low point. During this dark time, a good friend recommended Colette to me, as she had been seeing her. I heard such positive things that I just had to get in touch. I held out for Colette to have availability, and I am so glad that I did! When my treatment commenced, I was so stressed at work and my diet was poor. I was at a complete loss. Colette chose the right time to discuss a diet plan with me, which I fully took on board (plus I managed to lose a stone in weight and felt great). The acupuncture began taking effect after a couple of sessions, as I would always come out feeling calm and at ease. I felt far more able to handle stressful situations both at work and in my personal life. She became a true friend to me and I felt like I could tell her anything. She checked in on me between appointments and was always prepared to offer a helping hand. I felt genuinely cared for.

    Colette treated me in preparation for a cycle of IVF after a few failed attempts. Taking this holistic approach and embracing a complimentary diet and lifestyle, I am delighted to say that it worked and I am a proud mum of a healthy baby boy! Colette’s approach is professional and thorough, but she listens carefully with genuine care and compassion. I always felt so relaxed after my sessions. Would highly recommend.

    I went to see Colette because I wanted to have another baby and felt very stressed and overwhelmed that it hadn’t happened yet. I saw her only a few times before I was lucky enough to share the lovely news with her. The sessions really helped me to relax and feel less stressed about it all.
