My first introduction to Osteopathy came after sustaining an injury in a water skiing accident whilst living in Hong Kong. It went untreated at the time and it was only when walking became increasingly difficult and my ability to run even more so that I sought treatment. It meant having some significant rehabilitation. This made me realise the importance of addressing these issues as soon as possible and led me to an interest in human mechanics. I then embarked on a career change and came back to the UK to train as an Osteopath at the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in London.
I graduated from the BSO in 2001 with an Honours degree in Osteopathy. Since then I have worked at various clinics in the Midlands and South West and at a busy Doctors surgery in Gibraltar. I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and a member of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association (OSCA) and the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) and continue to further my education.
As an Osteopath I found both myself and my colleagues were encouraging patients to go to Pilates as we could see the benefits. I went on to train in Pilates in 2008 to enable me to give prescriptive exercises to patients which has led me into teaching classes locally at venues in Cheltenham and Gloucester. I am trained to REPS Level 3 Pilates. I feel that exercise is a very important adjunct to manual therapy.
