Professional background

Qualified in Medicine from Charing Cross Hospital and underwent surgical training. I subsequently qualified in Osteopathic Medicine in 1989 and have been involved in Musculoskeletal Medicine since then. I am a tutor at the London College of Osteopathic Medicine and  BIMM (British Institute for Musculoskeletal Medicine).

My main physical method of treatment is by osteopathy or acupuncture although in certain circumstances I use injections for some musculoskeletal conditions.I am particularly interested in Mind Body Medicine and the treatment of stress related  symptoms.
