Overview

I am a dedicated Healthcare Professional with an enthusiastic caring approach. Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strength, however lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.

I am regulated by The General Osteopathic Council and a member of The Institute of Osteopathy and I have been a Perrin practitioner since 2010 and have successfully been treating patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME. I am also a member of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association and have treated sports related conditions for over 15 years.
