I qualified from the University College of Osteopathy with a Masters degree in Osteopathy. Prior to this I spent 13 years in the City before undertaking a career change.
My 4 year osteopathy degree included clinical training in a variety of settings, including hospitals, GP surgeries & community outreach centres. This amounted to over 1,000 clinic hours, with exposure to a broad range of patients, problems and injuries.
I feel my past experience of the stresses and strains of a high pressure job with long hours, combined with raising a young child and attempting to stay fit myself, grants some perspective from which to understand a wide range of issues.
I grew up in south-east London and was a keen athlete, representing Great Britain at Judo and my university at rugby. I have had my fair share of injuries along the way, fuelling my interest in effective methods of rehab and injury prevention.
I use a number of treatment techniques, tailored to the patient. These include joint manipulative therapy, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue work, visceral techniques and functional movement approaches.
I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
