Our health and well-being are our most valuable asset...

In practice I love treating people of all ages, newborn to the aged, and relish working with a variety of conditions. As a mother of two children with a background in education, I strive to provide a child-friendly space and be as adaptable as possible with the treatment process. I use the treatment model of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) because I believe it is not only effective, but also gentle and non-invasive and suitable for all. I have gained diverse experience as a practitioner at Stillpoint Osteopathic Medicine Centre. I am committed to learning, participating in ongoing professional development and I am continuing to grow a supportive network of multi-disciplinary practitioners.

I will develop individualised treatment and management plans. My goals for treatment can be varied and may range from pain relief through to adjunct therapy for chronic conditions. Osteopathy is a holistic therapy so, where appropriate, I may prescribe exercises and lifestyle recommendations. I am ACC approved and can determine your eligibility.

My passion for osteopathy is grounded in my own treatment experiences and those of my family. My aim is to improve people's quality of life of people, promoting natural healing, where the body is encouraged to stimulate and restore itself. My approach is to facilitate balance and harmony in all aspects of our lives.

As for myself, I love art, literature and travel. I replenish myself with yoga, craft and cooking. I find sanctuary in my garden.

My philosophy on life is to look at the healing power of nature. The human body is inspirational in its ability to heal.

“Osteopathy is based on the perfection of Nature’s work. When all parts of the human body are in line we have health. When they are not the effect is disease. When the parts are readjusted disease gives place to health.

The work of the osteopath is to adjust the body from the abnormal to the normal; then the abnormal condition gives place to the normal and health is the result of the normal condition.” A.T. Still (Father of Osteopathy)
