Aidan Spencer BOst MSc(Paed Ost) MICO
After a previous career in film lighting, Aidan trained at the British School of Osteopathy, graduating with a distinction in 2006. Whilst at the BSO he worked in specialist clinic within a school for primary age children with severe behavioural difficulties. This experience sparked an interest in paediatrics. He went on to study for a Masters in paediatric osteopathy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children and was awarded a prize for outstanding achievement whilst on the course. He has also undertaken extensive specialized training in classical and ‘cranial’ osteopathy.
Since graduating Aidan has mainly worked in Brockley and has a strong commitment to the South London area where he has lived for most of his life. He also works as a clinic tutor at the Osteopathic Centre for Children each week, lectures on the sociology of healthcare at the British School of Osteopathy and teaches at post-graduate level in Europe.
Aidan has had a long-standing enthusiasm for the Chinese exercise systems of T’ai-Chi and Qigong which he teaches locally. This experience has informed a deep interest in posture. He has experience in carrying out workplace ergonomic assessments and offers exercise advice to interested patients, seeing osteopathy as working best as a collaboration. He enjoys seeing patients of all ages from newborn to nineties.
Aidan is recognized by all the health insurers who cover osteopathy.
