Osteopathy – North London
Osteopathic practice is a safe and effective form of prevention, diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of health issues.
Osteopaths are highly trained healthcare professionals who are experts in the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and associated tissues) and its relationship to other systems of the body, to keep you as healthy as you can be.
Osteopathic care is based on the individual needs of the patient and so varies depending on your age, fitness levels and diagnosis. We use a wide range of gentle hands-on techniques that focus on releasing tension, stretching muscles and mobilising joints. These are often used together with exercise and helpful advice designed to help you relieve or manage your pain, keep active and maintain the best of health.

I have been in practice for 15 years, after an initial career as a management consultant. I trained as an osteopath and naturopath at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, ran a busy private practice in the City for 6 years before returning to BCOM as Head of Clinic.
In addition to supervising trainees and lecturing, I am actively involved in clinical research aimed at supporting the evidence base for osteopathy.
I take a holistic approach to health and aim to support patients to achieve optimal health. As well as hands-on treatment, which includes Western medical acupuncture, I offer nutritional advice and exercise prescription.
I am registered with The General Osteopathic Council, have a Certificate of Competence from the British Medical Acupuncture Society and a PGCert in Medical Education.
