Osteopathy & Cranial Osteopathy

07789 518356

I have 15 years experience of using gentle, subtle cranial osteopathic techniques alongside other osteopathic techniques (including physical manipulation, stretching and massage) to treat a broad range of individuals, including pregnant women, children and babies.

I first became interested in osteopathy at the age of 14, when I watched my horse enjoy, and respond well to, hands-on physical therapy.
Following my A-levels, I embarked on a four year degree course at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) and graduated with an honours degree in Osteopathic Medicine in 2002.
During my first 18 months of work I continued with my studies within the field of cranial osteopathy by completing the first two modules on the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy Pathway.

I then took a year out to travel through Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand.
On returning home, I decided to combine my hobby of horse riding with my career and completed my MSc in Animal Manipulation (Osteopathic Pathway) in 2008.

I continue to further my interest in Cranial Osteopathy by gradually completing the Sutherland Cranial College Pathway, as I attempt to balance the enjoyment of my career with the amazing demands of motherhood.

I have completed seven postgraduate modules with the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy including ones in Paediatric Osteopathy.

I have recently move to Ceredigion from Staffordshire with my young family to be nearer the sea and closer to my parents who live in Solva.
