I graduated with honours from the British School of Osteopathy and have worked at a number of clinics in London and the South East, treating a great variety of injuries and other problems. I particularly enjoy working with pre and post natal women and babies, especially after having three children of my own! I also have a special interest in working with children with additional needs and will be training as a Portage worker in 2016.
I was drawn to osteopathy after a fall left me unable to work. It was when an osteopath explained the mechanics of what had happened that I was able to understand what my body had gone through, and was finally able to recover. After five years of Osteopathic training and many years of work in various clinics I am now passing on this inspiration to others. I am particularly interested in the power of the mind over pain and our relationship with our pain, and try to explore this within treatment, often combining mindfulness exercises with hands on osteopathy. I use a gentle and integrated approach to treatment, promoting the osteopathic principle of encouraging the body to heal itself, whilst working closely with patients to find out the best way to get well again.
I am also a keen runner, cyclist, swimmer and yogi, and thus very aware of the demands we put on our bodies. As a result I value the importance of exercise and body awareness alongside her treatment – and am a big fan of Pilates, often incorporating this into the treatment plan.
