Emma is the practice principal and business owner and director, specialising in pregnancy related conditions, and the treatment of babies and children.

Emma trained at the British School of Osteopathy; which has led the development of osteopathic education and practice in the UK since 1917. It has the largest osteopathic clinic in Europe and was amongst the first establishments to gain accreditation by the General Osteopathic Council.

She graduated in 1997 and since then Emma has worked in practices in London and Winchester, and in 2005 set up her own practice in Stockbridge. During this time she has broadened and developed her experiences by treating a wide range of conditions and ages.

Since 2009, Emma has also been working in Kenya, providing humanitarian Osteopathic and medical healthcare to some of the very poorest communities living in slums or remote locations. She says 'this has encouraged me to explore my capabilities professionally and personally; and my understanding of the importance of treating health, not disease has developed profoundly'.

Emma is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy (iO) and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) which is responsible for regulating the profession. Osteopaths must comply with the regulations of the council, which includes a code of conduct and CPD requirements, in order to be accepted and maintained on the register. This process was started in May 2000, ensuring only those entered on the register can call themselves an Osteopath.

Alongside her work with adults, Emma increasingly enjoys working with pregnancy related conditions, babies and children. She undertook two post-graduate Cranial Osteopathy courses to improve her skills and confidence in using cranial techniques, and is a qualified Antenatal Teacher with a higher education teaching diploma.

With these skills and being Mum to three children herself, this complements her specialism in Obstetrics and Paediatrics and she can now offer exceptional care and experience to her patients in these areas.

Above all, Emma enjoys building a relationship with her patients, seeing the beneficial effects of her treatment, and the diversity her work brings her.
