About me:

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.
