Ms Clare McSharry
Job Title: Practice Director
Specialisations: Acupuncture, Herbalism, Traditional Chinese Medicine
My background is in IT. It may seem a strange career change to go from IT to acupuncture. I suppose it is! The major upside of my background is that I fully understand the real issues and problems facing the ordinary person in the ‘real’ world. I came into acupuncture with a knowledge of the issues and a desire to help people with the day to day problems they face. I hope the logic of my computing background, the natural empathy I possess and my fresh approach to training in acupuncture will lead me to help you find your solution to your problem.
I trained in The Lansdowne School of Acupuncture under the excellent tutelage of Dr. Vincent Carroll. I graduated with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Certificate in Clinical medicine.
I have done additional training in Auricular acupuncture and Cosmetic acupuncture. More details are in those sections.
