The Mindful Osteopath

Let me introduce myself as I am new to the island. I have moved here in August 2018 and started my new practice at Gurnard Pines in Cowes in January 2019 in the beautiful Island Wellbeing Centre.

I graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a Masters in Osteopathy and a diploma in Naturopathy. This extensive training enables me to not only look at a patient’s musculoskeletal health but also assess lifestyle and external factors that could slow down or impinge recovery.

I treat a wide range of people from newborns to the elderly, including pregnant ladies and athletes in a friendly and approachable manner. I am wholly committed to the highest standards of patient care; your wellbeing really matters to me.

From my experience working with people suffering from a number of degenerative diseases, dementia and having volunteered at the Peace Hospice in Watford, I really believe that osteopathy can help the elderly live a better and more comfortable life.

Pregnancy can be challenging and being a new mum can also be a difficult time if you have had a difficult labour or if your baby doesn’t settle. Having undergone postgraduate training for the treatment of pregnant and post-partum women as well as newborns and children, I am able to provide support and treatment for these stages of life. Don’t suffer, just contact me, I might be able to help.

In my free time, my children being grown up, I look after my three dogs and two horses. I am a keen outdoor person and enjoy walking, riding, swimming and plan to start sailing again. Being very active and having had a few injuries myself, I have a good understanding of sports injuries and how to help people go back to their favourite activities.

Each patient is unique and is treated as such. I will always take the time to explain findings, treatment, recovery plan and consider the possible mind and body link to your pain presentation.

My treatments are preceded by a thorough biomechanical assessment and include structural osteopathy (massage, mobilisation, manipulation), cranial, visceral osteopathy, Kinesiotape and medical acupuncture where appropriate.

I am also a trained Pilates instructor and can offer one to one Pilates sessions to help patients improve their posture, get stronger and more mobile.

Prevention being better than cure, you don’t need to be in pain to benefit from osteopathic treatment.

I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and the Institute of Osteopathy. I am fully insured.
