Alex Watson BSc (HONS) OST
Lead Osteopath

I founded Osteopathic Consultancy in July 2000 after qualifying from The British School Of Osteopathy. With help from my wife Sharon, Osteopathic Consultancy has grown considerably grown considerably since year 2000. The path of Osteopathy was shown to me when I had a shoulder injury whilst swimming. I swam at National Level for many years until my shoulder injury. I then had mainstream medical treatment to try to help my pain. This ended with an Orthopaedic operation on my shoulder. At this time my swimming coach gave me the somewhat crazy idea of going to see an Osteopath. I was quite negative about having help from what I saw it as a non-mainstream medical practitioner. Although I was in such bad pain my parents and I thought we would give it a go. I was very impressed with the Osteopath I saw, his knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology was impressive and he greatly helped my shoulder, leading me to be pain free.

Through my teenage years I also played Football at county and Golf at district standard. With this obvious background in sports I always assumed that my path in Osteopathy would follow sports injuries. When training at the British School Of Osteopathy my interest in sports was maintained, but I began to realise that the use of general Osteopathic medicine could bring great benefits to all types of people from all walks of life. Within the course at The British School of Osteopathy numerous special clinics were run. I participated in these clinics, which consisted of paediatric (children’s) maternity, geriatric (elderly people) and the sports clinic.

Jeremy Webb BSc (HONS) OST
Osteopath

Jeremy was selected to represent England Basketball and did so for 3 years. He still enjoys sports and regularly plays golf. He also enjoys scuba driving when given the chance.

Jeremy studied a course in sports massage and also trained as a personal trainer. However he found that it was hard to help some of his clients. Although he could help there were was a great number that did not respond to just massage. As a qualified personal trainer he was unable to help many people to fitness.

This lead Jeremy to seek another way helping his clients. He then embarked upon the Osteopathic course and this opened up more answers. He now finds that having a greater understanding and a wide range of techniques allow's him to help his patients far more.

Laura Fishlock (M.Ost).
Osteopath

Laura graduated from the European School of Osteopathy with an integrated Masters degree in Osteopathy (M.Ost).

As a keen sportswoman, playing netball and football in her local community, Laura’s interest in osteopathy began after seeking treatment following sports injury reoccurrence during her adolescent years. This sparked her desire to aid others in their anatomy and physiology to optimise recovery and functional performance. She is currently enrolled on the Osteopathic Sports Care Association mentoring programme to further her knowledge in treatment and management surrounding sports performance osteopathy. This involves working closely with sports. She is currently supporting the players at Newbury Rugby club as an osteopath providing training and match day treatment. She is keen to bring the skills learnt here into general practice with patient education and rehabilitation being a key feature to her holistic approach.

Laura’s interest in general practice allows her to apply a broad application of structural and functional techniques including cranial and visceral osteopathy.

Since graduating she has completed courses in sports taping and kinesiology taping to enhance osteopathic treatment and patient care.

Hayley Austin
Administrator

This is Hayley; she started working here at Osteopathic Consultancy in May 2017 as the clinic administrator.

Before working here at the clinic she was the weekend administrator at DFS for nearly three years. Hayley decided to change her career as her 4 year old son was due to start infant school in September and she wanted to find something part time and during the week so she could maximize her time with him.

She has enjoyed her time at the clinic so far, working closely with Sharon and the Osteopaths. Hayley is a highly motivated and approachable individual who is finding herself becoming close with some of the patients on a one to one basis and is looking forward to her future here at Osteopathic Consultancy.
