For 25 years, Tanya has been helping patients to get out of pain and return to the activities that are important to them.


She graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (now the University College of Osteopathy) in 1998, laying the foundation for her career in osteopathy. Committed to continuous professional development, she pursued postgraduate training in Cranial Osteopathy, further enhancing her skills and expertise in this specialized field. Additionally, in 2016, Tanya completed a yearlong postgraduate certificate in the Osteopathic Care of the Older Person, demonstrating her dedication to providing comprehensive and tailored care across a diverse range of patient demographics and needs. 


Before establishing her own practice in 2000, Tanya gained valuable experience as an associate in several clinics across Kent. Over the years, her practice has flourished, evolving from its inception to becoming a valuable resource to the Chislehurst Community. In 2004, Tanya’s practice expanded, relocating to The Chislehurst Business Centre. Continuing this success, in 2024, she decided to join Jackie, moving her practice to work alongside Jackie and the rest of the team at the Osteo & Therapy Hub, providing a peaceful and accessible location for her clients.
