From Suhaila "It was in 2006, when a personal experience urged me to join and train with Macmillan cancer support to find out more about cancer and how it affects patients and families dealing with cancer. This training covered various treatments such as; chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, palliative care, as well as the importance of diet and fitness.
After completing and gaining much knowledge surrounding cancer, the increase risks of cancer were apparent, as growing amounts of patients experiencing issues surrounding cancer began to attend counselling. I then decided to join Sue’s House in 2010. For the last 11 years I have been providing empathetic, non-judgemental, safe and confidential counselling to patients and carers to help them process and express their issues and enable them to cope better with life’s troubles".
I have been in practice for 26 years and I am a member of British Acupuncture Council which is our regulatory professional body.
Acupuncture is a thousands of years old medical system and its diagnostic method is based on detailed observation of the human body. The needles we use are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted. Normally a dull ache or mild tingling can be experienced.
Acupuncture is considered beneficial for a wide range of conditions and ages.
As a practitioner I can say that I try to keep myself fit by practising Tai Chi, and going to the gym or cycling.

Sharon provides healing to patients with a wide range of conditions including cancer, end of life care, depression, insomnia, bereavement, for pain and stress relief and to aid overall well being and deep relaxation.
