About Jo

I am a mother of three kidults. I also used to be an osteopath but I am now, after 31 years of practise, retired.  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 was a registered osteopath from 1990 to 2022 so have skills in a range of techniques learnt and practised over the many years I worked and attended professional development courses. I still attend courses for personal learning but I am no longer registered with the General Osteopathic Council. 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.  In my retirement, I continue to attend to babies in the capacity of a Cranial Sacral Paediatric Specialist.

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 Sacral therapy, 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.
