I have always had an interest in shape and form, which I must have inherited from my creative parents; my father is an inventor and my mother a painter. So when I was working as a General Practitioner and came across an introductory course in Aesthetic Medicine 14 years ago, I knew instinctively that this was my calling. Since founding my clinic, I have performed over 25,000 procedures and have become the largest single user of Botox and Juvederm fillers in the U.K.
I pride myself on working with care and dedication to help my patients look and feel great. Recently, I have innovated a holistic approach to nonsurgical facial rejuvenation that aims to restore facial shape rather than treat areas in isolation.
I view and assess the face as a whole and use my artistic eye with a ‘less is more’ approach towards restoring shape, balance and symmetry. It has produced consistently pleasing, natural looking results and I’ve had very positive feedback from patients and colleagues.
I feel passionately that all practitioners should have a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation and have shared my expertise in this area in numerous recently published articles. I give free weekly training sessions at my clinic and also presented my approach at the recent CCR (Clinical, Cosmetic and Reconstructive) Expo. I am also registered with the JCCP, which is the recognised regulating body for patient safety.
In 2005 I completed an MSc in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in order to help patients with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). Since then I have worked hard to raise awareness about this disabling condition. I frequently lecture and publish articles to raise awareness and, as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist, am in a unique position to make a difference.
I’m very excited to be launching my Anti-Wrinkle Eye Mask in the near future. I’m working with a great team on this brand new invention that’s already received the 2016 BCAM Research Award.
It’s equally exciting to be launching my skincare range, inspired by the fact that I simply didn’t know what products to recommend to my patients. What I was looking for didn’t exist. I wanted something simple, as natural as possible, but with scientifically proven ingredients that delivered on promises.
