The teacher of this course was amazing. She has thorough learned and integrated into her field of specialty information from quite a number of sources and her own experience and is willing and extremely able to convey it to us in the course. Her pacing and thoroughness are greatly appreciated. I look forward very much to taking another of her offerings.

Presenter: 

Dr. Farrell has been involved in helping others to restore balance in their lives for 24 years. In 1996, she graduated from Emperor’s College with a Master’s in Chinese Medicine. She has been in private practice since 1997. She was a member of the faculty at Emperor’s College for 13 years. In addition to her faculty duties at Emperor’s, Yvonne was also a clinical supervisor.

Specializing in the use of the Secondary Vessels in treatment, Yvonne has been teaching channel theory to students for many years. She has developed proficiency with these systems because she feels they are very effective in the treatment of psycho-emotional and psycho-spiritual disorders.

Yvonne directs her teaching towards the empowerment of students with the hope that they will embody the spiritual aspects of Chinese Medicine and make them their own. She believes that self-cultivation & self-knowledge are essential in developing capacity as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine. To that end, she has also been on the leadership teams of many spiritual retreats and self-empowerment workshops.

In addition to teaching in the master’s programs of two schools, Dr. Farrell has been teaching CEU courses for several years. Her courses are lively¸ informative and clinically relevant. She is very passionate about the medicine and that is apparent in her teaching.

Yvonne received her doctoral degree (DAOM) from Emperor’s College in 2007. In 2009-2010 Yvonne was the Director of a team that was responsible for getting Yo San University’s first DAOM program up and running.

Although she has a general practice, her specialties include the treatment of psycho-emotional disorders or stress induced illness.
