Meet your osteopaths
B.App.Sc (Osteo), Grad.Dip (Osteo.Paed)
Having been in practice since 1992 after graduating from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and completing a Graduate Diploma in Osteopathic Paediatrics in 1996, I have had a lengthy and very passionate journey with osteopathy. This has been an integral part of my life for over 20 years in NZ and with Stillpoint. I have continued throughout my career to do postgraduate studies in OCF and since 1998 I have been involved as a faculty member of the SCTF of ANZ.

I trained in New Zealand graduating with a Masters of Osteopathy and a Bachelors of Applied Human Sciences from Unitec. My passion for osteopathy began after experiencing the benefits of osteopathic treatment in my own life.
What I enjoy the most about osteopathy is the diversity of practice that it offers, and the continual inspiration provided by the human body’s ability to adapt and heal. I am particularly interested in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) and enjoy using this approach to treat people of all ages.

I graduated from Unitec, Auckland, in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Osteopathy.
Health and wellbeing have always been my keen interests, and I was attracted to osteopathy because of its holistic considerations, comprehensive training, and the fundamental anatomy and physiology on which it is based.
As an osteopath, I enjoy using gentle manual palpation to facilitate a positive change in patient health. I appreciate the continuing personal growth in each of my working days as I listen to my patients and assist them to alleviate pain and find better health.
I graduated from Unitec in 2011 with a Master’s degree in osteopathy. I have always been fascinated by the human body and how it works – and it was through my own wellbeing journey that I discovered osteopathy. I was immediately hooked! I loved that it had a strong anatomical basis underpinning the philosophy, and the idea that the body is an inherently self healing mechanism deeply resonated with me. I enjoy using this knowledge to help patients gain better health and
Originally from Northern Ireland, I moved to New Zealand in 2006 via London, where I worked for a successful organic retail business. I joined the Stillpoint team shortly after arriving in the country, and they have since become my New Zealand family.
I take great pleasure in my role in reception, and in being the welcoming face that greets each and every client. I believe your treatment starts as soon as you walk through our door!
Outside of work, my passions include literature, cooking, travel, and exploring my creative side. And if I’m surrounded by friends, with a glass of New Zealand wine in my hand, I’m a happy woman!
