She is a Master Practitioner of Animal Osteopathy and a postgraduate and international lecturer (and examiner) of human and animal osteopathy. She also holds a PG Cert in Higher Education and has lectured at conferences and many international schools.
Politically, Eleanor has been actively involved with the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) – as a Council member and its President (2021). She is also on the Board for the Association of Animal Osteopaths and works closely with the Institute of Osteopathy.
Clinically, Eleanor works in private animal and human practice, incorporating an extensive equine background. She has further developed her equine and canine anatomy, biomechanics, neurology, pathology, orthopaedics, and rehabilitation through research and self study, attending seminars and carrying out dissections, post-mortems, and paraprofessional observations.
Eleanor works with a wide variety of mammals, breeds and disciplines across all levels, rehabilitating animals post-injury, and working with young animals to ensure they are ready for working life.She supports those who are changing career or discipline, and works with older animals to keep them happy and active.
She enjoys looking at osteopathic concepts as related to animals, and encompasses all aspects of health in her consultations. Eleanor believes that practitioners should treat in harmony with their animal patients, working toward optimal function. She has an innate ability to be in-tune with patient needs and find/treat the cause – not just the symptoms. Often removing long-standing compensation patterns and facilitating profound change, using flow and rhythm, enhances her treatments. She understands the importance of a strong focus on the day to day environment, and owner empowerment in supporting their animal’s quality of life.
