I trained at the British School of Osteopathy from 1980-1984. Since graduating I have gained experience by working with more senior osteopaths, and by working from my own practice, which I opened in 1986. From 1992 – 2002 for part of each week I taught students of osteopathy at The British College of Osteopathy and Naturopathy, now called The British College of Osteopathic Medicine. I taught osteopathic technique, which is the day-to-day hands-on work that osteopaths use in their practices. I also worked as a tutor in the BCNO outpatients clinic, where I supervised small groups of students as they individually treated patients. Patients of all ages with problems in many different parts of their structure would come seeking help at the Clinic.
