I am an experienced osteopath who graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (B.S.O) in 1999. I have been drawn to body work from an early age. My first ‘patients’ were friends from primary and secondary school who would ask me for massage and advice for various aches and pains. My interest in osteopathy was sparked by receiving a course of treatment in my teens and being fascinated by the complex and holistic nature of the diagnosis and also in the enjoyable aspect of the treatment.
I went on to study English at Oxford University and then became a journalist for The Observer Magazine. However, osteopathy was always in the back of my mind, so I ended up completing a second 4-year honours degree at the British School of Osteopathy. I graduated in 1999 and have been following my passion since.
After completing my training I’ve worked at a number of busy practices both in Berkshire and London and went on to set up two of my own, first in Paddington and then in Belgravia, but I’ve left them behind for a new life in Dorset.
I’ve been teaching at the British School of Osteopathy on the postgraduate Cranial Osteopathy diploma courses since 2002. I continue to develop my skills both for Structural and Cranial Osteopathy and Paediatric Osteopathy with over fourteen post graduate diplomas.
I love treating all age groups including adults who suffer from injuries related to work. I treat arthritic pain, general and acute back and neck pain, headaches arising from neck pain, circulatory and digestive problems, sciatica, muscle spasms, inability to relax, minor sports injuries, tensions, trauma, chronic pain, problems that occur after childbirth and pelvic and abdominal pain. I also treat babies and children.
I’m married with two young daughters and live in Sandley, near Gillingham Dorset. I like dancing, swimming and I dabble in Yoga.
