Registered with

  1. The General Osteopathic Council
  2. The British Osteopathic Association
  3. The British Acupuncture Council

With over 20 years experience as an Osteopath and Naturopath and over 15 years experience in Acupuncture, I maintain that the body has the ability to try and heal itself if properly cared for and believe in a relaxed approach to my treatments.

I first became interested in Osteopathy when I was 13, after mum hurt her back and she found that Osteopathic Treatment helped her feel better. I graduated in London from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine(BCOM) in 1991 after a four year full time training and returned home to Scotland. After 5 years working at a clinic in Troon treating a wide variety of people and qualifying as an Acupuncturist from the British College Of Acupuncture, in 1996, I took the opportunity to study further in a hospital in China.

In China my time was spent working and observing in the Orthopaedic and Acupuncture departments in a hospital linked to the Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This was then followed by a backpacking adventure around China and New Zealand before returning to Scotland in 1998 after a very interesting and educational few months.

Since 1998 I have been working in the outpatient department of the BMI Carrick Glen Hospital, in Ayr treating a variety of different patients. I am also working in Edinburgh’s City Centre at The Whole Works, a multidisciplinary clinic, near Waverly station.

I enjoy treating people of all ages (the youngest being 5 and the oldest 92).
