Fully qualified Foot Health Practitioner offering a friendly and professional approach to your foot care.

I have over 35 years’ experience in the care profession.  Since 2003 I have worked as a Qualified Occupational Therapist. After realising that our feet are one of the most important parts of our body which are often neglected, I decided to specialise in treating them.

I studied Foot Care at the College of Foot Health, Southport in Merseyside. This college was founded by The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP).  

It is important that your treatment is provided by a recognised Foot Health Practitioner and I am registered with the IOCP as a Foot Health Practitioner.  

My Occupational Therapy background means I am registered separately with HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council) as an Occupational Therapist for which I studied at the University of East Anglia. Previous studies have also included childhood early learning. 

About the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP)

The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP) is a professional body that serves practitioners throughout the whole of the profession of podiatry and podiatric medicine.

Its members include chiropodists, podiatrists and podiatric surgeons, within the NHS and/or private practice. 

Being granted the Institute certificate of membership is proof that such practitioners undertake to adhere to a strict code of ethics and the highest standards of professional conduct. Members and their clients are protected by what is recognised as the UK podiatry’s most wide-ranging professional indemnity insurance and an exemplary range of academic support.

What is a Foot Health Practitioner?

A Foot Health Practitioner’s primary role is to help people with their foot problems, not just by using treatments but also giving advice on the type of shoes and hosiery they should wear to keep their feet in a healthy condition.

This is a a caring career,  most people will develop foot problems at some stage in their lives often causing pain and discomfort. A Foot Health Practitioner provides services that range from treating relatively minor disorders to major disabling problems.

Foot Health Practitioners are able to alleviate, prevent, or correct foot disorders by non-invasive treatment and are qualified to refer patients for further treatment if required.
