I trained for 4 years at the British School of Osteopathy in central London, gaining a BSc in Osteopathy, before going into practice in Hampshire and West Sussex. I then set up my own in Southsea in 1993.
Five years later I relocated the clinic to Collins Road, Southsea, where I still work alongside osteopath Jon Butterworth.
We now have an established patient base, some of whom have been with us from the beginning, and bring their children and grandchildren.
I see many different types of problems, such as sports injuries, low back pain, migraines and trapped nerves to name a few. I treat all ages from children (the youngest was 2) through to pregnant ladies and the elderly (the oldest so far is 91).
Every patient is seen as an individual, and treatment is tailored to their specific needs. I use gentle structural techniques, taking care to ensure that the patient is happy and comfortable with the treatment.
I am a member of the Osteopathic Institute (OI) and registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) which means that I undertake continuing professional development throughout the year, to remain fully up to date with my skills and knowledge.
Outside of work, I enjoy running, Pilates and mountain biking, as well as walking my dog with my husband and three children.
