Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science), Bachelor of Osteopathic Science,  Member of AOA.

When I was young I was keen to study medicine – until I discovered osteopathy. Osteopathy perfectly combined my interests in:

  • human biology
  • the laws of nature
  • helping people through natural and positive approaches to health

I have been treating patients since 1999 and continue to do yearly courses, including Biodynamic Osteopathy and Paediatrics. I completed my double degree in osteopathic medicine at RMIT in 1998.

Work history

Since graduation, I have been in private practice working in and around the Brisbane area. In 2004, Shayne Day and I established the Brisbane Osteopathic Centre in Wilston.

Special interests

  • back and neck pain
  • all joint pain both acute and chronic
  • spinal injury
  • sports injury and pain from trauma
  • headaches
  • TMJ or jaw
  • musculoskeletal issues associated with children

Osteopathy Australia

I have also spent 5 years on the board of directors for Osteopathy Australia, the professional peak body for osteopaths in Australia. Firstly as the Queensland State President and then the National President.

Professional development

I have completed over 400 hours of additional training in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field. This included courses with the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation and completing the Biodynamics of Osteopathy in the cranial field phase program twice over many years. I had the privilege to be taught by Dr James Jealous from America and other experienced osteopaths trained in Europe. These courses included: treatment of children, clinical neurology, embryology and the osteopathic approach to dental problems.

Doctors Referral (Medicare CDM) and DVA

I regularly receive referrals from Medical practitioners (G.P’s) as part of Medicare’s chronic disease management plan. As a government registered practitioner I am also able to accept both Gold and White card holders for the DVA.
