My love and fascination with movement has always existed and my former years were spent exploring this fascination. Skateboarding, roller skating , breakdancing, gymnastics, kung-fu, parkour... the list goes on.
I competed successfully on the National and European stages in full contact martial arts and perhaps a blessing in disguise, it wasn't until I suffered a knee injury that I realised I wasn't indestructible. The seed was sown as manual therapeutic intervention guided me to a full recovery. I then went on to win more competitions and gain a World Championship title.
My profession at the time was in Television Post Production and although enjoyable, it kept me too far away from my real passions and interests. So the inevitable happened and I jumped ship from the world of TV into the world of health & fitness, injury prevention, management, treatment and rehabilitation.
From patient to practitioner, my conviction comes from having been on the therapist's table so many times, experiencing first hand what works and what doesn't. I truly believe in what I do and have a deeper rooted understanding in what it means to just be functional or to be at your optimal best. There is a difference.
I completed a 5 year Masters degree in Osteopathy at the British School of Osteopathy and I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). The depth of knowledge that I have attained about the human body, health and disease, has been the perfect marriage to my pre-existing experience and practical skill set. I have been very fortunate to have worked with many elite level athletes from a multitude of disciplines, as well as the more sedentary. I draw upon all these in my treatment approach, aiming to get the best results efficiently with every person.
