As an osteopath, my goal is to help patients towards their best state of wellbeing and maintain it. I work with a truly wide range of patients of all ages, presenting with an equally wide range of health concerns.
With this in mind, I use a variety of osteopathic, rehabilitative and movement-based techniques, including Cranial Osteopathy. I also recommend and refer to other disciplines and practitioners where appropriate.
I have always had a particular interest in the treatment of patients who present with multifaceted problems, and who may have already explored other avenues of treatment.
My journey with osteopathy
I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2000 and worked in London and Kent in multidisciplinary practices as well as my own practice. I completed the Animal Osteopathy Certification in 2003 and worked with animals including horses, cats, dogs and racing greyhounds all over Surrey, Kent, Essex and East Sussex.
I took a career break between 2005 and 2011, during which I moved from Kent to Edinburgh and started a family. I wanted to have lots of different experiences and expand my perspectives on life out with being a practitioner. For a while, I worked in the music industry and for an eco-friendly disinfectant company. I’m also the co-author of several non-fiction books on the universal themes of human emotions and experiences.
When I re-registered as an osteopath in 2011, I took over Blackhall Osteopaths in Edinburgh and then went on to start my mobile osteopathy practice in the Lothians, treating people in the comfort of their own homes. I have often worked with the whole family, including treating babies, children, and those who are pregnant.
Putting down roots
In 2020, I started building my practice at the Dalhousie Wellness Hub in Midlothian. I work alongside Nicola Paton, Massage Therapist, next door to Venus Fitness and downstairs from Mind Body Midlothian. We are separate but collaborative businesses, bringing different skill sets to support our local community towards better health and wellbeing.
I believe my varied work experience has allowed me to become a well-rounded practitioner who always treats the person as a whole instead of looking at health concerns in isolation.
Please know that I run an inclusive practice, welcoming people regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or national origin.
I am, of course, fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
Please, get in touch with me if you’d like to discuss how I may be able to help you.
