Yasmin graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a Masters in Osteopathy and a Diploma in Naturopathy in 2017. Her Masters research focused on the impact of the mind on acute pain, and for it she achieved a naturopathic research award. She also has an MSc Philosophy degree from the University of Edinburgh specialising in Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition. It gives her a strong insight into human mentality which enables her to appropriately tailor treatment plans and advice to each patient.
She was first attracted to osteopathy because of its holistic nature, and the principles behind this practice. She finds naturopathy to be a really beautiful subject; diet and lifestyle play fundamental roles in our health and she believes it ought to be utilised to a greater extent within healthcare.
Yasmin treats a wide range of patients, from marathon runners to office workers, however, she has a special interest in treating babies, children and pregnant/postnatal women. She developed an interest in cranial osteopathy whilst in Edinburgh where she worked in a clinic where many babies were seen.
She is currently pursuing a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy via the Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy to further her skills in paediatric osteopathy and osteopathy for pregnant/postpartum women, and to develop cranial osteopathy skills. This is the gold standard course for paediatric osteopathic care and involves providing treatments to babies (including those on Barnet General Hospital’s Starlight Neonatal Ward), children and pregnant/postnatal women under the guidance of senior osteopaths with a wealth of experience in this field.
Yasmin fills much of her free time with bouldering and hiking; these hobbies stemmed from time spent in the Scottish Highlands’
