Originally from the Vale of Belvoir in Leicestershire, I studied languages at Newcastle University before spending a few years working abroad in Canada. Osteopathy was a career that had always appealed to me as I appreciated the logic of treating a patient as a whole person, rather than a collection of symptoms. In 2011, I made the move back to the UK and undertook my Master’s Degree at the College of Osteopaths as a mature student.
I have a special interest in headaches, paediatric patients and in musculoskeletal problems that can be experienced during and after pregnancy, I completed studies in cranial osteopathy at Master’s level and use these gentle techniques to help with aches and pains in patients of all ages.
One of the things I love most about being an osteopath is that the appointments are nice and long so I can take time to really get to know patients, to understand how their lives and their families are affected, and to know what it means for them to be able to get some relief from discomfort. For this reason, I’ll never tire of watching patients improve, and helping people to regain independence through better understanding and management of their condition.
We love to travel, so weekends are often spent exploring new places or planning the next adventure. Otherwise, you’ll find me at the gym, curled up in a comfy chair with a new book or my knitting, or at an ice hockey game (when we can get tickets!).
