I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1988 and I am a member of the General Osteopathic Council (GOC), the regulatory body for osteopaths. The title of osteopath is protected and all osteopaths must be registered with the GOC. I am also a member of the Institute of Osteopathy. Having practised for over 25 years not only in the private sector but also in the NHS, I am a London osteopath who has built up a wealth of knowledge and experience in treating patients with a multitude of musculo-skeletal problems. These problems may be related to poor posture, “wear and tear”, repetitive strain, sport, trauma or very often stress. I like to think that my approach to helping my patients is a holistic one. It is important to try to find out why a patient is presenting with a particular problem at a particular time. I also place great emphasis on a patient’s participation in their own recovery, what the patient can do to help themselves. I believe that the road to recovery is really a team effort.
