I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in 1992 and have always included the care of horses and dogs in my work. From 1995 I worked at the Osteopathic Centre for Children treating babies and expectant mothers, gaining valuable experience in caring for patients with more serious illness and disability. I also taught at the BSO and set up a multi-disciplinary clinic in London. In 1999 I moved to Devon to work in a hospice providing osteopathic palliative care and also worked for Sure Start looking after pre-school children and their families. In 2005 my partner and I moved to beautiful Wiltshire where I work at the Church Street Practice in Bradford on Avon and Marlborough House in Taunton. I teach paediatric osteopathy at the Daisy Clinic in Clonmel, Ireland and I have special interest in teaching about teenage brain development. I recently completed a training in animal communication, adding another dimension to my work with animals.
I graduated from the BSO in 1999, winning the Silver Medal as best student in my year. I have post-graduate qualifications in cranial osteopathy and a Masters degree in Paediatric Osteopathy. I am a Fellow of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, Member of the Institute of Osteopathy and Member of the Royal Society of Medicine. As well as treating people at the Church Street Practice, I do some post-graduate teaching in cranial osteopathy. I enjoy treating horses and dogs using these gentle and subtle techniques. I have lifelong experience of caring for and riding horses, from Pony Club and hunting in my youth to riding point-to-point horses more recently.
