“Where possible, I like to teach clients about why I would choose one treatment over another and this helps to give them the autonomy they deserve. I usually treat clients who are 30+ years old and am known for the ‘natural look’, I enjoy being able to make small tweaks to enhance the face and profile, ensuring that the results look natural. I have always enjoyed teaching, and took part in peer-teaching sessions at university and throughout my junior career as a doctor.
