Practice Owner & Clinical Director
Sarah qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in London over 20 years ago. Subsequently Sarah brings a wealth of in-depth diagnostic expertise, experience and wisdom to Breckland Osteopaths. Her background as an Orthopaedics and A&E nurse at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and wide ranging experience within the hospital setting presents a supportive and confident environment for her patients.
Sarah found nursing deeply rewarding and became an osteopath to broaden her anatomical knowledge and practice a more holistic branch of medicine that could be tailored to the patient’s individual needs. Since qualifying Sarah has travelled widely and established practices both here and abroad – in Scotland, Canada and France before opening Breckland Osteopaths in Swaffham, Norfolk in 2010.
Sarah enjoys all areas of osteopathy but has a special interest in pregnancy, sports injuries and shoulder problems and also uses acupuncture as a useful addition to her treatments. Sarah has treated a wide variety of patients ranging from new born babies, Olympic sports people to centenarians!
