I established the practice here in 1981 and began assembling a team of like-minded practitioners who shared the same objectives of holistic patient care, generalists who remain committed to the compassionate management of a truly wide range of patients of all ages presenting with an equally wide range of health issues.

The joint commitment to these objectives and the teamwork we attempt to implement continue to inspire all of our practitioners to help create and sustain a supportive and healing atmosphere for the ultimate benefit of all our patients.


I graduated in 1982 and have a particular interest in Specific Adjusting Technique (SAT) which required a skill in spinal manipulation in areas subject to physical trauma especially the neck after a blow to the head or a whiplash.

As the years have gone by I have also integrated the Cranio-Sacral approach with SAT and have formulated a unique blend of the two so that the work has taken on a precision and gentleness not commonly associated with boney manipulation.I have also found a way of using the 'Cranial' approach to help with emotional and psychological matters and teach this approach in conjunction with SAT.

I have been in practice since 1987, and teach undergraduate and postgraduate osteopathic courses in the UK and abroad.  I have a particular interest in the treatment of patients who present with multifaceted problems, and who have already explored many other avenues of treatment.  I often receive referrals from other osteopaths and therapists.

For decades now, I have been treating pregnant women, babies, and young children, as well as mothers with difficulties resulting from childbirth.  It is wonderful for me to treat young children, and then years later be able to support them, now adults, with their own growing families.

In practice since 1989 I have always been fascinated by how the body moves and functions.  I use the Franklin Method to help me to bring my sense of the inner very fine workings of the body that comes from my Osteopathic and Cranial Osteopathy study and practice to bear on the larger movements of the body in terms of posture, sport, dance and movement generally.

I am always concerned with that individual NOT the condition or label that they have been given. I don't offers cures for conditions - what I offer, based on my understanding and experience of osteopathy and healing, is help to harness and boost the body's natural ability to overcome illness in as far as that individual is able at this time.

In practice since 2001  I have continued to learn in post-graduate training, including completing the full course in Biodynamic Osteopathy in 2013, developing my skills in the cranial approach to treatment.

The practice of osteopathy allows me to engage with the art and science of life.  A. T. Still, the originator of osteopathy, spoke of "finding the health" within the patient, rather than focusing on the symptoms or the disease. As a practitioner, my aim is first to understand the tensions and dysfunctions being expressed, and then to find and support the health within the patient, and in this way to facilitate the power of the body's own self-healing mechanism to heal itself.
