About Jo

I am a mother of three children.  I am also an osteopath.  I started my adult life with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology which prompted me to specialise further via the four year osteopathic course taught at British School of Osteopathy.

I have been a qualified registered osteopath since 1990 and have skills in a range of techniques learnt and practised over the many years I have been in working and attending professional development courses. My special interest remains, however, in treating babies, children and their mothers. I have studied paediatric osteopathy for many years. In 2009, I completed a Masters Degree in Paediatric Osteopathy.  This was a wonderful experience (and hard work!) which included weekly visits to London to work at the Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy, a charity which houses the Osteopathic Centre for Children.

Babies are exciting to treat because they often respond so quickly. Each one is a unique and beautiful creation and the awe I feel over pregnancy and childbirth has never tarnished. It is such an utterly amazing process it is hardly surprising that it is referred to as  the ‘miracle’ of birth.

I believe in women. I believe in their ability to be natural birthers and natural mothers. ‘Natural’ comes in many forms. It is the innate intelligence that a mother has about her body and her baby that I love to see expressed. By calming a baby or mother through Cranial Osteopathy, mother is more able to access the innate knowledge she carries about her baby.


From 1991 until 2010, I worked as a self-employed osteopath at The Redgrave Clinic which is now closed.  The Pinder Room has been open since February 2010.
