After leaving school Guy trained to be a Mental Health Nurse and after one year as an in-patient nurse at Greenwich Hospital started working in various community mental health teams in London.

Guy’s interest in Acupuncture started when he took a career break and went travelling. He studied Thai massage in Thailand and met an acupuncturist there who had just completed their training. This sparked his interest in acupuncture and on his return to London he started training on a Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic Ac) course at the School of Five Element Acupuncture (SOFEA). He graduated in 2002 and has been practising since then.

After graduating Guy stayed in contact with the School and became a tutor and member of their academic board. He taught at the School until it stopped undergraduate training in 2007 and now works with Nora Franglen (Principle of SOFEA), offering post graduate training to qualified acupuncturists and other therapists that use the five elements.

As well as teaching at SOFEA Guy has also been a tutor at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Warwick and The London Institute of Five Element Acupuncture in London. He currently teaches at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa (TAA), The Academy of Five Element Acupuncture (AFEA) in Norway and at The Nanning Traditional Medical Centre (Tong You San He) in China.

Guy’s passion is Five Element Acupuncture as it treats at the deepest level and can benefit and help everyone. This style of acupuncture treats the person and not the symptoms and aims to get to the root cause of any imbalance or ill health. He has also trained in the technique of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture which can help reduce the signs of the ageing process.

When not treating or teaching Acupuncture, Guy enjoys the relaxing and health benefits of Yoga. He is currently learning the Scaravelli method, which uses gravity, grounding and breath work.
