She was awarded the Prize for Excellence in TCM studies by the Association of Traditional Chinese medicine.
The five-year course Gisèle attended is respected as one of the highest standing Chinese medicine degrees in Europe and was the first collaborative professional programme in TCM to be validated in the UK.
It was designed as a joint degree in close partnership with Beijing university of Chinese medicine and modeled on the very curriculum used in China.

There, she was tutored by some of the most prominent physicians and learnt their latest techniques and treatment methods. She also gained extensive experience working on the respiratory, cardiology, neurology, dermatology, paediatric, gynaecology and traumatology wards.
Gisèle trained at the Asante Academy of Chinese medicine, the affiliated research and training centre of Chinese medicine at Middlesex university and practiced in the pain management ward of the Whittington Hospital in London.
