The importance of patient feedback (its not just about us…)

Having been terrified of dentists for a large part of my life I was very reluctant to find a dentist for a recent tooth issue (caused by another dentists poor treatment). As a result I began to ask around for recommendations of dentists instead of assuming they are all the same (hoping to not be…

One week in and I’m elated!

So this year is only 7 days in and I've got two amazing new clinics to add to the list (obviously including the current amazing clinic in Streatham). This week has seen my own clinic open at Anytime Fitness in Dorking and today I had the pleasure of meeting my new associate Sally Wade, principal…

Reflections and resolutions…

Having been taught the beauty of reflection while studying, I've started to use this practice not only in clinic but in personal life too. Allowing me to look at the pros and cons of decisions, measure the outcomes and adjust accordingly to improve myself and my life. 2017 has been a hell of a year…

Osteopathy, the gift that keeps giving…

I love my job. As with all types of work osteopath has its ups and downs but this line of work has rewards far more uplifting than any other industry I have worked in.  I think I've mentioned previously how its therapeutic but further to this the past month I have had such lovely recognition…

Yesterday I took a healthy plunge and joined the Anytime Fitness gym in Dorking (if you live…

Aches and pains may easily be treated with osteopathy but where many believe this to be a quick fix, a personal effort is advised to maintain the effects of treatment. Having treated a multitude of patients and complaints I have observed the effects resulting from a lack of maintenance between treatments and the disappointment resulting…

The Importance of Breathing Correctly.

The title may seem a tad patronising but a large number of patients I've treated have presented with an incorrect upper (or accessory respiratory muscle) breathing pattern. The upper breathing pattern is often associated with patients who suffer with respiratory diseases such as asthma, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and hyperventilation through panic or anxiety…

Gynaecological health and nutrition.

So, this morning I went and finally got myself some professional website profile shots done with good friend, photographer and author of the Bare Reality series Laura Dodsworth. We had amazingly in depth conversations about the books, photography, relationships, sexuality and health. While discussing my interest in female health and fertility I was told about…
