I am an Osteopath and Cranial Osteopath who integrates Movement Medicine into my work as an Osteopath. I have been in osteopathic practice since 1989 when I graduated from the European School Of Osteopathy - I have now been practicing for half my life! (2013) I have taught at the European School Of Osteopathy at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels. I trained with the Franklin Institute in London and Uster, Switzerland and am one of the first English speakers to graduate from the 3 year Advanced Diploma program as a Franklin Method Educator. Since graduating as a Franklin Method Teacher I have continued to study in the related field of Ideokinesis. I completed the Apprenticeship Training with the School Of Movement Medicine in January 2011. I completed the Professional Training with the School of Movement Medicine in 2012. I graduated as a Movement Medicine Facilitator within the feild of Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy in February 2014.
I love my work! Since I was a small child I have always wanted to know how the body works, what makes us ill, what makes us healthy. Osteopathy, Franklin Method, medical science, psychotherapy and Movement Medicine have all helped me to get a deeper and deeper understanding of the nature of health and ill-heath. My work is all about taking what I have learned and using it to help and support others to find a happier, healthier relationship between their body, heart and mind. It is an ongoing process where I bring all the experiences from the various trainings that I have received and all the experiences of living my life together so that I can give the best I can give whether in osteopathic treatments or Workshops. My next steps, now that i have graduated as a Movement Medicine Facilitator, will be about making the shamanic, healing element of my work more open and obvious. I'm very excited about this next phase in the development of my practice.
I practice in Hitchin, Hertfordshire (my home town) and in Northwood, Middlesex which is on the edge of north west London - on the Metropolitan underground line. The telephone for that practice is 01923 827833. The other contact information is in the contact bit of this website.
I work with people of all ages and backgrounds - from babies to the elderly. As I work with the whole person the range of "problems" that my work may be able to help you with is enormous - if you are not sure that I could help you then you could always email me first so that we can discuss your situation before making an appointment. It would be a good idea to contact me by email first if you feel drawn to the more shamanic, healing side of my work.
