Why did you want to be an osteopath?

I find the body fascinating and I was always intrigued by the idea of the body as a whole and how you can help it reach its optimum health. Once I was trained as an osteopath I decided to build on my skills by training in paediatric osteopathy because everything we are as children, impacts greatly on the adult we become and I wanted to help children to grow into the best adults they could be.

What do you enjoy about being an osteopath?

I love to help people take control of their own health and guide them in that process. The work involves continuous learning with every new client – it’s like trying to solve a puzzle! I love that journey.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I do a lot of rock climbing! ⛰It’s invigorating, challenging, exhilarating and very sociable. It can be scary, it can make my heart beat faster and when I’m climbing outdoors, there can be real ‘wow’ moments when you reach the top. At the other end of the spectrum, I love yoga! ?‍♀️

What is the best thing about working at the Maris Practice?

Absolutely the people! Both the other practitioners and the clients. It’s a very peaceful place. And I really enjoy the Mums and babies ? drop in mornings – it’s so lovely to be able to give the baby a treatment while Mum is also receiving one!
