In my late teens, an osteopath helped me to recover from chronic low back pain and the depression that accompanied it. He soon became a friend and mentor. It was his limitless enthusiasm for his vocation that inspired me to study osteopathy.
I believe that osteopathy is for everyone but I have a special interest in working with pregnant women, babies and children. I studied at the Osteopathic Centre for Children, where I worked for a total of nine years.
I believe it’s important to give something back. I served as a Council Member at the Institute of Osteopathy from 2011 to 2020, including two years as President. I have taught at the University College of Osteopathy, the Institute of Classical Osteopathy and the Osteopathic Centre for Children. I am a Tutor for the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy and I was a lead author of the Osteopathic Development Group’s ‘Guidance for osteopaths who work with children and young people’.
