Victoria studied at The British School of Osteopathy, in London, qualifying in 1986, making a permanent return to Devon in 1990 and has worked in the South Hams ever since. Bidwell Cottage was extended in 2000 to add Bidwell Practice onto the house and give it a permanent home. Victoria loves the variety of treatment approaches that Osteopathy offers, and the range of possibilities for the recovery and restoration of balanced health, especially in regard of more complex, longstanding presentations. She has always had a special interest in the treatment and support of expectant mothers and their new-borns, following these children as they grow. More recently she has developed a keen interest in the treatment and management of the performing voice, and hopes to have time to focus on this in the future.
Freddy qualified from The British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London with a combined Masters Degree in Osteopathy and a Diploma in Naturopathy.
He treats a broad range of patients and with each and every one, he tailors treatments to the individual's specific requirements, circumstances and ability. He also uses exercise rehabilitation video software to allow each patient to improve recovery and maintain health after treatment.
He loves horse riding and walking his two dogs. On the days he is not working at Bidwell, Freddy can be found working as an Equine Osteopath, treating horses around the Southwest. For more information on equine osteopathy please visit www.equiost.com.
After qualifying from BCOM in 2007 Chloe spent some time working at the osteopathic centre for children, an experience she found hugely inspiring. She has a specialist interest in treating babies and children but also very much enjoys treating the whole family! Chloe takes a gentle approach to treatment and uses all aspects of osteopathy.
