I am a Registered Osteopath with over 20 years experience, and have worked in Stroud since 2004. I specialise in Cranial Osteopathy & Biodynamic Cranial Osteopathy, which are gentle & effective approaches to Osteopathic Treatment ideally suited to treating all patients; from Adults to New Born Babies & Children, During Pregnancy and As We Get Older.
It was my interest in yoga and meditation that lead me to become an Osteopath, and for me meditation in particular plays a central role in being a health care practitioner. I make the time to go away on a meditation retreat every year which I find very rewarding both on a personal and professional level. Walking is one of my favourite forms of exercise, and the beauty of the hills and valleys around Stroud never tire on me.
Post graduate I have completed several modules with the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, and more recently I have completed the full 9 year program of ‘Biodynamic Cranial Osteopathy’ (Traditional Osteopathic Studies) with Christian Sullivan in the UK. I have also been a tutor on the BioBasics course held in London for several years now.
Initially I worked both in Stroud and at Churchdown Osteopaths. As my Stroud practice became more busy I devoted more time to it, until eventually I stopped going up to Churchdown Osteopaths altogether.
The aim of treatment is to help patients help themselves, and this is done while maintaining a high social, ethical and environmental ethos. I attend post graduate osteopathic courses and conferences regularly in order to provide patients with the best possible care.
After 10 years working in the Stroud town centre, I moved my practice to a lovely location in Springhill, just 5 minutes walk from the high street. I also live in Springhill my wife and two children, in a house further down from the clinic by the park. For more information use this link Springhill Co-Housing.
