As Principal Practitioner, Philip set up the House and still works as an Osteopath full time there and at his sister clinic, Breeze Health in Pinner. Having graduated from The British School of Osteopathy, he spent 1993/ 4 in New Zealand, working with Richard Robertson DO, the ex-president of the New Zealand Register. More recently in 2009 Philip finished an NLP practitioner course specializing in listening to his patient’s needs. Combining multi-continent techniques and thoughts he is confident that whatever the problem he can look at it from any angle and find a solution.
He was a senior tutor at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in Clinic (2004-2011) and has lectured at the British School of Osteopathy from 1995 to 2004. His topics include the History of Western Medicine, Osteopathic manual techniques and clinical skills. He is involved with the John Wernham school of Classical Osteopathy and continues professional development whenever he can.
His latest CPD includes running and the adaptations behind it. You may have seen him on running courses, barefoot and by 2022 back in trainers. His latest interest is in Thyroid related matters, sleep and breathing patterns. In the last twelve months he has already attended CPD updates on knee surgery and shoulder joint changes and 2023/2024 will mean working with more chronic pain patients and helping make their life flourish.

Lastly, he is qualified to practise Medical Needling, a western form of acupuncture. Eventually he hopes to get his 10-metre swimming badge!
As well as various papers ranging from Osteopathic History to Vaccination, he has supervised over five dissertations investigating the benefits and history of Osteopathy. Lastly, he is involved in Workplace preventive practice working with Muscular Injury teams to stop injuries occurring.
For fun he runs, scuba dives and spends as much time as possible with his wife Hannah, dogs Pasha and Gino and his two children Joshua and Poppy. Each year he chooses an adventure to raise money for charity, 2009 was dedicated to the London Marathon and raising money for Kith and Kids, 2010 was Barnardos and the 4 Peaks challenge, while 2011 was The Ridgeway bike challenge. 2012 and 2013 saw the South Peaks Challenge by bike. (because it was very hard and he ran out of daylight the first time he went back for the 90 mile off-road attempt in 2014 to complete it).
