Barry Williams and Liza Wilmot have worked together for several years and have developed a unique way of working. They treat their own patients individually however they occasionally collaborate if someone has a difficult problem.

My background is quite conventional, purchasing and logistics when I was employed by German companies.
In about 1992 Barry Williams developed severe arthritis in his hands, this he controlled by diet which arrested any further progression of the disease.
A friend suggested Barry Williams try acupuncture and after 5 or 6 treatments he returned home, sat in the chair then felt a tingling down his arms, in his hands and in ankles together with a sensation that can only be described as if crystals were breaking up in his hands and ankles. The pain went.
His consultant told him that he had gone into remission. He has been in remission for 20 years and is happy with that. This made such an impression on him that he decided to change his career and retrain as an acupuncturist. He qualified in 1997 and is a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council.
For 3 years Barry Williams and Liza Wilmot operated a Chronic Pain Clinic within the Birmingham NHS. Unfortunately due to Government spending cuts funding was withdrawn.
Initially he practiced in the clinic of the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington and Warwick as a resident practitioner

Liza Wilmot was for many years a consultant psychiatrist working in the NHS. She became interested in traditional acupuncture after gaining much personal benefit from treatment and began recommending it to her patients. On retirement she trained at The College of Traditional Acupuncture, Warwick out of interest with no real plan to go into practice. However she found it all so fascinating that she have continued.
She enjoys teaching medical students at Warwick University about acupuncture and complementary therapies. I am Head of Biomedicine at the Acupuncture Academy.
I am a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council.
