I have been in practice since 1997, setting up my own private practice specialising in pregnancy, post delivery care and paediatrics in 2005. I was Director at Whole Child Therapy until 2018 working in an interedisiplinary team and running multidisciplinary CPD events. I have previously worked as a paediatric clinical tutor, lecturer and examiner in paediatric osteopathy in the UK and Europe.
I am a Council member at the Institute of Osteopathy (iO) which is focused to unite, promote, develop and support the osteopathic profession, for the improvement of public health and patient care.
I was very fortunate in doing my postgraduate paediatric training at the Osteopathic Centre for Children. The diversity of patients seen at the Centre brings a wealth of experience that is unique. It is a centre of excellence in paediatric osteopathic health care. A place where experienced paediatric osteopaths are working and treating together – pushing each other to a challenge their practice and broaden their osteopathic approach.
I have worked at the osteopathic centre for children since 2005. I am a clinical tutor and lecture in post-graduate pregnancy and paediatrics diploma programme. I examine in the diploma final osteopathic paediatric clinical competence examination and have experience working with the Barnet Hospital neonatal unit osteopathic outreach programme.
Alongside my professional experience, I have considerable personal experience of the challenges faced by parents dealing with their children’s health conditions. I feel genuinely that my children have benefited from a rounded approach to their ongoing sight and hearing issues, which has included NHS care and osteopathic treatment. I believe there can be a balance within any medical management team and a potential preventative and supportive osteopathic role.
