D.O. Registered Osteopath

Jeremy graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1984 and initially worked in a practice in Haywards Heath with Osteopath Anthony Pusey. He set up The Drive Osteopaths in The Drive, Hove in1985 and has worked here since.

For the past 10 years Jeremy has organised the Central Sussex Osteopaths, a professional development group where local osteopaths can gain post graduate training and clinical technique experience. He is actively involved with the General Osteopathic Council in the development and furtherance of the profession. Jeremy is also a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.

‘Having watched my four (now grown) children search their hearts for a choice of career I now realise how lucky I am. I always wanted to be an osteopath and now 30 years after qualifying I am still fascinated by osteopathy and how I can use it to treat a whole myriad of symptoms. It continues to be my passion. Helping people to regain their health is so fulfilling, if you don’t have your health you don’t have anything.’

The Drive Osteopaths is a family run clinic, Jeremy’s wife Gilly is the Practice Manager.

Using gentle osteopathic techniques to ease pain and muscle spasm and restore normal movement, Amy aims to help people understand their body and how to minimise the impact of everyday stresses and strains. Amy also lectures at the European School of Osteopathy in her favourite subject; anatomy, and runs courses for Osteopaths in Sussex.

Gillian BuckGillian Buck

RSHom LSECH

Gilly’s interest in homeopathy was first awakened when her son was diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes, twenty-three years ago. Homeopathic treatment helped to keep him well balanced and healthy despite his condition. She learnt to use homeopathic remedies for all her family for minor ailments.

The interest became a passion for a form of treatment that helped with her own health and those of her family and friends in a constructive, natural and gentle way.

Finally she studied a four year course and in 2006 qualified from the South East College of Homeopathy in Lewes. Gilly works two days a week as a homeopath at the Clinic. With her other hat on, Gilly manages the running of the Clinic.
