I was born and raised in South Devon, studied chiropractic at the AECC in Bournemouth, and graduated in 2002 with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic. Then it was back to my roots to start practising!
I was fortunate to be offered a position within Torbay Chiropractic Healthcare Clinics where I worked for 11 years.
I am passionate about creating a place that is accessible to everyone. Being proactive about our health and looking after ourselves is something that should be available to us all, not purely the privileged few or the ones who can’t afford not to.
I’ve developed a busy family practice and thrive on the challenges posed by all different age groups, and in 2004 I was awarded Surestart contracts to offer Chiropractic treatment of newborns in Torbay to be provided via this government-funded initiative. This has helped build my reputation as a successful paediatric chiropractor and I continue to offer treatment for those as young as 5 days old. Referral of these, my youngest and most fragile of patients, often comes from local Health Visitors and Midwives.
My own experience as a busy mother of two has strengthened my passion for seeing children on a healthy path from the very start.
I vary my approach to suit your needs, but predominantly use Diversified Technique (the most widely used amongst chiropractors) and I add to this by using massage and other soft tissue techniques to relax musculature.
I’m qualified in Dry Needling and I have done further post graduate training in Craniosacral techniques.
I am always happy to answer questions, and I want you to feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave, feeling healthy and revived.
Most new patients come to us because they have been referred by existing patients – this is a fact we’re extremely proud of!
As a thank-you for the recommendation, we give the new patient a £5 discount on their first treatment, and the referrer gets £5 discount on their next visit too!
This offer is valid for all therapies offered by us.

As soon as it is safe, we will be re-introducing our other therapies.

Yes, but in order to reduce time spent face-to-face, we are doing the initial consultation using Telehealth (secure video chat).
This gives us the opportunity to take your history, perform a basic examination, and assess your suitability for treatment – all in a safe manner.
Once this has been done, you will be invited in for a thorough examination and hands-on treatment.
We have taken all appropriate measures to ensure that your visit to us will be as safe as we can make it.
We have completed thorough risk-assessments and taken advice from all relevant governing bodies. We have adapted our working methods and changed the way we do things.
That said, any time you leave your home, you are increasing your risk of infection.
Please ensure you:
