In 1998, Doug graduated with First Class Honours from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy (now known as the British College of Osteopathic Medicine) in London.
Doug is primarily attracted to the holistic nature of osteopathy and considers all aspects of the patient’s life to create a bespoke approach to their care across:
After working in London for a year, Doug decided to move to Yorkshire in 1999 for a better quality of life, and he started to work with Amittai Sevi at the Good Health Centre in Leeds. Since that time Doug has helped develop the practice and has enjoyed working with a wide variety of patients.
Doug has worked with musicians and singers and administrative staff from Opera North. He has treated dancers from dance companies based in Leeds such as Phoenix Dance and RJC, in addition to independent professional dancers and students from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
Over the course of 19 years at the Good Health Centre, Doug has worked with patients of all ages, from babies to the not-so-young, specialising in musculoskeletal pain and postural problems, employing structural and cranial osteopathic techniques, dry needling and appropriate exercise prescription to facilitate recovery from injury and optimise the health of his patients.
Doug is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council, and as such is committed to undertaking Continuing Professional Development courses to further his knowledge and skills. Doug is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and he is a specialist provider for most health insurers.
In his spare time, Doug likes to relax with his family, cycle, walk the dog, and play the guitar.
