About Me

Miriam Walker BSc (Hons) LicAc MBAcC

During a varied career in HR, running a Management Consultancy, and volunteering for a local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, obtaining a Psychology degree from the Open University along the way, I became fascinated by acupuncture after it proved very successful in helping my children cope with and recover from various childhood illnesses. This eventually led me to train professionally at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine where I undertook a 3.5 year course covering both Western and Eastern medicine, graduating in 2005 with an Honours Degree in Acupuncture from Portsmouth University. My dissertation was based on research into the efficacy of acupuncture in the alleviation of hot flushes.

I regularly attend conferences and courses to continue my professional development, such as ‘acupuncture in palliative care’, ‘acupuncture in fertility / IVF / pregnancy and childbirth’,  and cancer education programmes.

I am a qualified First Aider and counsellor.

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council – the governing  and regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK – I operate according to their set standards for safe practice professional conduct.

In addition to running my acupuncture clinic in Camberley, for 12 years until 2018, I did voluntary work at The Fountain Centre for cancer patients at The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. The Fountain Centre is an independent charity for cancer patients and their families located in the St. Luke’s Cancer Centre. The Centre offers advice, counselling and a range of complementary therapies including acupuncture in a relaxed atmosphere and I consider it a real privilege to have worked there.
