Sue Jennings, BSc (Hons), DO


Sue lives locally to the practice in Lordswood, Chatham and is the owner of the practice. After graduating from the European School of Osteopathy, Sue opened the Lordswood Osteopathic Clinic in 2010 and also began working at the European School of Osteopathy.

At this school Sue was part of the examination team who assess the osteopathic students prior to their graduation as osteopaths.

Sue is particularly interested in clinical neurology which is the assessment of the nervous system of the body and feels that this is a very important part of osteopathy.  Sue is greatly interested in how neurological problems affect people in their everyday lives and is passionate about helping to resolve these difficulties with both her treatment and the rehab exercises that she prescribes.

Within her treatment, Sue uses a variety of techniques designed to suit each individual and prides herself on tailoring her treatment and rehab packages to each patient's personal and specific requirement.



Naomi Bond-Deacon M.Ost


Naomi Graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2023 with a Masters degree in Osteopathy and experience in treating patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Growing up in France with British parents, Naomi dreamed of living in the UK. As a teenager she shadowed her osteopath – and was inspired to care for all who might benefit from treatment, including during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood.

With over a decade of ballet dancing under her belt, Naomi understands the importance of listening to the body, and of taking the time to heal properly. She addresses each individual as a whole, aiming to restore balance and engage with them to reach their highest potential by using various treatment approaches (structural, cranial and visceral techniques) combined with rehabilitation exercises where appropriate.

Simone Baldrich M.Ost.


Originally coming from Germany, Simone found her way via Australia to England to achieve an M.Ost in Osteopathy at the European School of Osteopathy and she also holds a certificate for modern acupuncture needling.

As a practitioner, Simone uses a structural approach but has had the privilege to be trained in different areas such as visceral and cranial osteopathy to allow individual treatment to each patient.

Due to her own interest in sports such as volleyball, cycling and running, she also developed further skills for appropriate taping after sports injuries to support recovery or prevention of injury in the first place.

Simone enjoys seeing patients of all ages to support with short or longterm issues with the aim to restore the best possible health to their body.
