Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you train to be a chiropractor and where did you train?

I knew from a young age that I wanted to study to become a chiropractor. Having been treated by one myself as a junior rower I was amazed what a difference it made. After visiting the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) I was certain this was the place for me. The AECC is known world-wide to deliver a pioneering, evidence based course, with an emphasis on integrated and clinically relevant learning. And - it is right by the beach! I had a fantastic time studying there and felt like it gave me the best possible start in the profession.

Tell us about your career so far

After completing my degree I moved to the Netherlands with my (now) husband where I worked for ten years. The first five of these I spent working at two fantastic practices with experienced colleagues who I continued to learn a lot from. I then had the opportunity to run my own busy practice where I worked for the next five years. I loved living and working in the Netherlands, however in 2019 we made the big decision to move back to the UK to be nearer to family. We moved back to Henley (my hometown) whilst I was on maternity leave for our second child. I was thrilled when Amy O'Connor mentioned she had an opening for me in her practice and jumped at the opportunity to work with such a great team.

What is your favourite type of patient?

I enjoy treating patients of all ages and abilities and work hard to understand the underlying causes for their complaints so that I can alleviate their symptoms. I have a special passion for treating pregnant patients to enable them to have the most comfortable pregnancy and delivery possible.

What is your style of practice?

I aim to help my patients feel in control of their health and think it is incredibly important that they understand their complaint so that we can work together for the best possible outcome. I use a range of hands on treatment techniques, combined with exercises and advice on lifestyle and habits that patients can work on at home.

What will we find you doing outside of the clinic?

Outside of the clinic you will find me running after our two children and energetic Labrador and enjoying time with my family after being away from them all for so long! I hope to be a part of the team at Back In Line for a long time, helping patients to the best of my ability to enable them to achieve their goals and enjoy their lives to the fullest.
