I qualified in 1981 and went back to the British School of Osteopathy (as it was then called) UCO and taught there 1 day a week for 27 years; the last 5 years as head of 4th year technique.
I have also taught abroad and did 5 years of lecturing to qualified Osteopaths as part of their Continued Professional Development. I set up the Fareham Osteopathic Centre in 1981 and only recently sold this to Cain Sedgwick, and I still work there 1 day a week.
The Petersfield practise started in the front room at home seeing those who could not make it down to Fareham.
Now it is my main place of practice and I am there 2 days of the week, supported on other days by Lyndsy Mills Osteopath and Louise Hammond Physiotherapist.
I work structurally but with gentle techniques and have always had a keen interest in sports related problems.
After 6 weeks of osteopathic treatment, amazingly, most of the intense pain I’d been suffering 24/7 disappeared. I continued treatment and after some months I was able to take up non-contact sports again.
After numerous rounds of painkillers and physio, my latest bout of unbearable pain and discomfort was the final straw and finally sought help from the Fareham Osteopathic centre after recommendation from my sister. I cannot thank Cain from the centre enough.
