Claire originally came to Abacus in 2008 for assistance with her first born baby girl, who was struggling with feeding & sleep. It was then that she was converted to the potential of Chiropractic. Following the birth of her second daughter, she enrolled on the pathway course followed by the Masters degree in Chiropractic at McTimoney college of Chiropractic. Previously a Nursery Nurse of many years, she found Chiropractic exciting and fuelled her understanding of the human potential. Claire shadowed Deirdre Edwards in children’s clinics over 5 years, to ensure depth of learning. During her Chiropractic journey her third daughter arrived, completing her family. A well-adjusted little girl we say! She graduated with a Masters degree in Chiropractic from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in 2017, and became a member of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association (MCA). Since then she has undertaken postgraduate training with the Royal College of Chiropractors to further her knowledge. Claire brings an understanding of child development from her nursery nurse days, and has a special interest in providing chiropractic care for children, and women throughout pregnancy.
