C-19 statement


I am sure you are all aware, that given the current conditions and authority guidelines, it is neither  possible nor prudent to conduct face-to-face consultation and hands-on treatment and remain compliant with authority guidelines. 

I do continue to be  available for my patients, however,  so if you do have any queries or concerns, please feel free in the first instance to pop me an email on . I will aim to get back to you within 24 hrs. We can discuss symptoms and I can recommend home treatment, gentle movement and exercise, as appropriate.
In the meantime, please stay safe and stay well. 


I graduated in Naturopathy and Osteopathy in 1985. Back in the day, as it was an independent college, the awards were Diplomas, so in 2008, I completed the newly created Conversion course to BSc(hons) Ost, and in 2018 added an MSc in Animal Osteopathy. I am currently a part-time PGR (post graduate researcher) at the University of Northampton. 

Over the years, I have worked as an associate, a practice owner, and a clinical lead in a residential Naturopathic clinic. I currently see all my human patients at The Broad Street Practice, and also have a Small Animal practice separately. 

I love gardening, weight training, exploring the great outdoors with my dog and a tent, and reading for pleasure ( a nice change from research papers and textbooks when I can get round to it), and spending time with my now grown-up children and all our animals. 

Education : British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy 1985 British College of Osteopathic Medicine 2008 European School of Osteopathy (University of Greenwich) 2018 Currently PGR at University of Northampton ( Canine Biomechanics and Morphology).
