I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 1991 and fell in love with Osteopathy from day one. My passion for the insight passed on by A T Still (the founder of the profession) has never diminished.
I continue to enjoy daily practice life, especially the richness of treating everyone from newborn babies to the very old. My enthusiasm has led into teaching and I am fortunate to be able to travel across Europe hoping to inspire other Osteopaths.
My desire to keep exploring and extending the scope of my Osteopathic practice led me to post graduate training and through this into a committed role with the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, first as student and for the last 15 years as a tutor and lecturer.

I am particularly interested in working with more complex and long term patterns presenting in individuals and the way in which psyche and feelings also express themselves in the body. The current burgeoning of scientific understanding of the inter-relationship between mind, emotion and body is particularly rich and provides lots of evidence to support some of the assertions made by AT Still the Osteopathic founder. I find myself endlessly fascinated by the complexity and intelligence of the body and it's capacity for repair.
Born and brought up in south Devon, I consider myself very fortunate to have found a vocation that I love and that enables me to live in this beautiful part of the world.
