I qualified as an osteopath in 1999 from the British School of Osteopathy (now known as the University College of Osteopathy, UCO) gaining a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Osteopathy, BSc (Hons) Ost.
Since qualifying I have worked consistently as an assistant osteopath in a variety of osteopathic clinics, and I established my own clinic, the Rivermead Osteopaths in 2002.
I am passionate about improving people’s wellbeing through osteopathic treatment. I do this through the hands-on treatment itself, and offering advice and tools for people to better manage their situation.
Obviously osteopathy isn’t the only way to improve a person’s wellbeing. I have built a network of reliable healthcare practitioners over the years to refer to if necessary.
However, alongside the increasing health problems of chronic disease and the consequences for a person’s musculoskeletal system, I felt compelled to train as a Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach (NLC) to better assist people around their general health.
I believe in giving people as much control as they are happy to take on to maintain their own wellness. With this in mind, I have also trained in Pilates for rehabilitation through the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).
I work to maintain and update my knowledge through regular continued professional development activities. This is great for me and also allows me to inform my patients in the best way possible.
I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC). Click below for more information on osteopathy and it’s regulation on the GOSC website:
I look forward to meeting you in the future, should you need my help.
