I first became interested in osteopathy when I was a child after having osteopathic treatment for knee pain. I was fascinated with how the osteopath relieved the pain with only two or three treatments and without even working on my knee. He explained that the problem was originating from my back.This fascination never wore off and so in 1996 I started a four year full time course at The Maidstone College of Osteopathy. I qualified in 1999 and then went on to complete a course in therapeutic massage, finding that it complements osteopathy perfectly.

Since then I have worked in various clinics around Kent until opening up my own osteopathic treatment rooms at 34 Avebury Avenue in Tonbridge. I divide my time between the clinic and looking after my young family while continuing to keep my skills up to date through study and attending regular training courses.

I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council, or GOsC (membership no. 4172), the registering body which regulates all osteopaths. The GOsC website is a great source of information about osteopathy, including what types of problems it can help and what to expect from a consultation with your osteopath.
