I have been in practice for 45 years and I’m still enthusiastic about the help for health that osteopathy can provide.
I gained my undergraduate Diploma (DO) from the British School of Osteopathy.
The undergraduate course is fulltime 4 year training, with extensive anatomy and clinical medical content, as well as osteopathic techniques and practical clinical work under supervision.
In 2010 I was awarded a Master of Science (MSc) from the University of Greenwich.
As part of the MSc, I studied osteopathic care in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and that has informed my special interest in women’s health, in care around pregnancy and care for older women.
I was fortunate to be introduced to what is popularly known as ‘cranial osteopathy’, a way of working that applies to the whole body as well as the head, by some of the great teachers of our time in the 1980’s.
I am listed on the Biodynamics in Osteopathy International Physicians website. (jamesjealous.com) and I am a Fellow of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy (FSCCO)
I continue to keep my skills and knowledge fresh with continuing learning in accordance with the General Osteopathic Council guidelines.
I like to see my patients as the whole person with a health problem, rather than as a condition with a person attached!
It’s not unusual for shock and stress to be part of the mix and I have taken training in supporting emotional trauma as an aspect of osteopathy.
I love the challenge of resolving complex health problems and if needed and with permission, I will communicate with your other healthcare professionals to do our best to get you a good outcome.
I enjoy living and working in the countryside and meeting people from many different backgrounds who come through my door.
I like to keep fit too – going to the gym and walking in the open air in the countryside around us.
