Professional Practitioner who is focused on providing treatments to people from all walks of life. Empathic individual practicing since 1997. Predominately maintains the central London practices as well as joining the Eastgate House team to serve the local community of Leicester. Since graduation, I have completed numerous postgraduate courses in areas of Osteopathic studies and the Naturopathic field. As an Osteopathic Practitioner, my focus is on how the body functions, and recognising why signs of joint restriction arise, or how pathology presents problems of dysfunction. Hence “ the structure governs the function” As a Naturopath, the role is similar to a general practitioner in modern medicine. Naturopaths are equivalent to nature’s healthcare GP of holistic medicine. Naturopaths utilise all the tools at their disposal in all-natural therapies to help the patients back to recovery. Prescribing various remedies and following lifestyle adjustments with treatment protocols. Naturopaths educate patients to be responsible for their own wellness. Over the years my studies have involved me in participating in interest groups, using treatments to integrate allopathic medical approaches with holistic medicine. Combining an integrated approach to health as enabled me to explore knowledge and bring it to the forefront in finding the root cause behind ailments. Thus treatments are far-reaching than just resolving the symptoms. I strongly believe that everyone deserves the best healthcare, for their long-term happiness and wellbeing for a good quality of life. I am here to help you!
