About Me

Claire qualified in the summer of 2008 and is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), the regulating body for Osteopaths.  In addition to working within a busy practice she also lectures at the Irish College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Claire treats patients of all ages, from babies to the older patient.  At each appointment you can be sure the treatment is specific and tailored to you, the patient, the individual. When treating she considers posture, bio-mechanics, exercise and rehabilitation as well as giving life-style and nutritional advice.

Since qualifying she has set up two practices in Harpenden, worked with a number of sports teams (from local amateur to elite national) and is qualified in various therapeutic modalities including Dry Needling, Strapping and Kinesiology Taping (K-taping).

Claire is always developing her knowledge and experitise and is currently studying for a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy, at the highly prestigious Osteopathic Centre for Children (OCC).  The specialist training has taught her the skills necessary to treat children and babies with varied presentations from the very common to the complex.  Treating in two London hospitals has also allowed her to successfully treat children suffering with complications surrounding prematurty and severe disability. 

Whilst many people claim to have studied cranial, few osteopaths have studied at the OCC, where by the hours of hands on practice and 2 years of studying at a post-graduate level allows for a complex understanding of newborns and children up until the age of 16. To find our more about the OCC visit; www.OCC.uk.com.

With a keen involvement in Athletics and Gymnastics in her younger years and after 14 years of playing Women's Rugby, Claire has developed a strong interest in sports injuries and believe that whether you're an enthusiastic amateur or elite professional; osteopathy can help as a form of effective treatment, rehabilitation and as a means for injury prevention.
