About Me

About Me

Keeping super-healthy has always been my passion and I want it to be yours too! 

 

A lifetime passion for healthy living

I left university with a science degree in Psychology. My working career began in pharmaceuticals and orthopaedics, but the majority has been happily spent working as an registered osteopath. For over 20 years, I have helped people with all sorts of everyday aches and pains. It has been both a privilege and an important lesson… not to take our bodies and good health, for granted.

I qualified with a diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the acclaimed and highly respected Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London, a 3-year full-time course in 2016. To further extend my knowledge, I also hold a certificate in Functional Medicine, one of the main principles of which, is to find root causes of underlying health issues. Combining these disciplines with my osteopathy and hypnotherapy, allows me to work in a very unique way.

Unique service - three disciplines

We are all different, inside and out. Your unique thoughts affect your behaviours and your behaviours, over time, significantly influence your health. Understanding this is key to helping you change old unwanted habits into healthier new ones.

I draw upon 30 years experience of working with people's structural, physiological and psychological needs. Osteopathy supports the body’s structure via manual treatment and exercises. Without good structure, our body's function will be compromised. Nutritional Therapy supports the body’s physiology through diet and lifestyle improvements. Poor diets and lifestyles, compromise our energy, quality of health and longevity. Hypnotherapy supports the body’s unconscious drive to maintain mental heath, a fundamentally important aspect of our whole health.  

I hope that I will get the opportunity to teach you how to listen to your body’s messages, motivate you to change for the better and become the best that you can be.
