Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in osteopathy at the London School of Osteopathy for five years, at first studying anatomy and physiology, in depth.  Later subjects included pharmacology, radiology, patho-physiology, psychology, clinical methods and differential diagnosis.  Osteopathy itself, both theoretical and practical was studied alongside these, including many hours of clinical practice. 

I qualified as a registered osteopath in 1996 and now work both in my own home practice and in another osteopathic practice, treating a wide range of problems.  I use various techniques which include massage, articulation, muscle energy techniques, manipulation, craniopathy and functional technique.  I occasionally work as an examiner in practical osteopathy at the LSO.

I became interested in reflexology later on, feeling it would enhance my osteopathic treatments.  I attended classes at Southchurch Adult Education College (part of the Anglia South Open College Network).  I was taught both the theory and practice of reflexology, which involved extensive coursework and case histories, which provided excellent hands-on experience.

Reiki followed more recently, providing a natural progression in my learning.  I believe we never stop learning and enjoy exploring other therapies which might enhance my patients' experience.

I am fully insured to practice all the above therapies and I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council.  Only registered osteopaths are recognised in law and entitled to practise osteopathy and call themselves an osteopath.
