Passionate about supporting people to find solutions to improve well-being
I’m Deborah and I’ve worked as an osteopath since 2002 in several different clinics. I use a biopsychosocial approach– this means not simply looking for physical causes for pain but considering the whole person including mental and social well-being. As a result, we may discuss sleep, exercise, diet, mental health, relationships, work, spiritual concerns, as guided by you, to find the strategies that will help you. My osteopathic knowledge and skills enable me to help you understand your pain and provide hands-on treatment, exercise, movement and general well-being coaching tailored to achieving your goals.
Starting the Pain Puzzle clinic is an opportunity to provide pain solutions to people who are in despair with chronic or persistent pain. Persistent pain is an increasing problem in society today. I believe people must be provided with the best we can offer based on current research and understanding. Supportive care and solutions are essential to help people in pain return to living a better life with meaning and purpose.
Beyond the clinic..
I have a few other responsibilities in the osteopathic world – I run a business called Mint Practice which provides compliance advice and clinic leaflets to osteopaths, I’m a trustee of the General Osteopathic Council which is the regulator for osteopaths, and I help run the local networking group for Osteopaths in Bedfordshire.
You could say I’m a committed osteopath!
In my spare time you will most often find me at church – listening, chatting, singing, teaching children or playing the piano, or otherwise running, swinging a kettle bell or visiting family and friends. Being a committed Christian affects every aspect of my life including how I run the clinic and treat my patients with honesty, kindness and integrity. Combining my two greatest passions I’ve recently had a Christian booklet published ‘Help I’m in Pain’.
