The Coach House, Gloucester Street, Newent
Gloucestershire GL18 1AF
I qualified in 1989, after 4 years training in London at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine .
I moved back to my home town of Newent in Gloucestershire and opened Newent Osteopaths.
I choose osteopathy as a career after suffering from a chronic back problem as a child that continued through my adult life ,after going through the hospital NHS system the only relief was with osteopathic treatment .
This is when I decided this was my vocation.
I feel that my back pain experience has formed me as an osteopath and enables me connect and empathise with patients.
I have three children ,two step children and five grandchildren ,which gives me first hand understanding how a busy life, juggling home, work life can have a very real physicological effect on your body . Osteopathy really does work .
