I've been a Chiropractor for 22 years, and over that time, I've learnt many different styles and techniques. Having a variety of skills enables me to tailor my work to each individual and their specific needs and preferences. I'm one of a handful of Chiropractors in this country to be qualified in Functional Neurology, and one of 2 clinics that incorporate state of the art technology to measure balance, eye tracking and neuro-cognitive function.
I've always been drawn to the outdoors, so you can sign me up to pretty much anything that gets me out. Walking, sailing and sea kayaking are all favourite pursuits. In more recent years I've discovered the joy of running, completing the Paris Marathon in 2018 to fundraise for Duchenne UK. When time permits, I head off in a sea kayak. The last trip was for a couple of weeks with my son in the Stockholm Archipelago – a special time with my son Joe in one of the world's most beautiful places!
My other great loves are food and cooking, which links nicely to our beautiful allotment at the City Farm – a place of great contemplation and much reward. Good food is a source of nourishment on so many levels and is central to the time I spend with my partner, friends and family.
My early working years were in 3D Design, principally in ceramics, and when time permits (or we run out of mugs) I can be found over in the Black Mountains making mugs, bowls, plates and teapots. There is still a joy to be found in the immersive experience of sitting at a potters wheel and creating, decorating and firing pots. No matter how many times I have done it, unpacking a glaze firing is always a magical experience. I often think that the understanding that I gleaned from those early years about how things work and look in 3D have stood me in good stead for my Chiropractic career.
