I began studying Osteopathy in 1998 after some earlier studies in Mathematics and Finance at the University of Technology Sydney and created Bankstown Health in 2013 after purchasing Bankstown Natural Therapies Centre.
My interests include biomechanical pain and dysfunction and the integration of manual therapy within the current medical model. Further interests include low back pain, sports injuries and biomechanics of the foot leading to postural syndromes. I have a particular interest in human behaviour and integrate manual therapy with behavioural work to health outcomes for patients.
I always consider how your symptoms may be caused by something structurally involved above or below the area of complaint. This is why my treatment almost always involves a whole body approach.
My strong science/evidence-based emphasis ensures I provide the most accurate and relevant information possible at the time of consultation. I also try to remain as open-minded and integrative when approaching a problem to ensures better patient outcomes and holistic management.
In 2013 I created a world first exercise platform that has revolutionised the way exercises are prescribed to patients. PracTx is now being used by healthcare practitioners worldwide and is something I am very proud of. It simply allows health practitioners to send exercises to their patients via email in HD-Video.

My interest in foot mechanics and the effect they have on the rest of the body lead to my training in the prescription of custom orthotics using the gaitscan system. Gait scan is a revolutionary way to accurately measure the foot whilst moving and create exact inner-soles (Orthotics) for shoes if necessary. This has allowed me to better control the environment to suit individual needs and to get to the bottom of some forms of general pain and more complicated structural/chronic problems.

In 2013 I completed my training in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and deep state repatterning. This technique really has opened the door to so much potential in my clinical practice. In it’s simplest terms NLP allows me to quickly understand where you might sit in belief systems/limitations around health values and other behavioural choices. It then gives me the tools in language to create fast and effective change in behavioural patterns. I use NLP with every patient, both informally (during my Osteopathy consultations) and formally by the way of specific consults in NLP. This allows the greatest potential for positive impact on your health is my priority, and improving your health and mindset is my ultimate goal.

My most recent studies in Clinical hypnosis have added another tool in being able to change behaviour quickly.
