Helen studied Osteopathy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children and the London School of Osteopathy and gained her first Paediatric Qualifications (MD) from the Second Moscow State Medical School.
She is particularly interested in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and as part of her neuromuscular rehabilitation work (in conjunction with educationalists in Teach First, CCCU), Helen has conducted a number of studies on motor-dysgraphia in secondary and primary school children.
She enjoys her role as an educator and having the opportunity to be guest-lecturer in paediatrics to post-graduate osteopaths within SCCO. Together with colleagues, she is currently developing more postgraduate and public courses in postural development, and writing a book on baby handling skills for optimal postural development.
