Our Osteopaths at Active Healthcare Clinic have nearly 60 years post-qualification experience between them, so you’re in safe hands! Here’s a little more about them …
Simeon Hempsall (BSc Hons) was born and bred in Sheffield. He went to the British School of Osteopathy in London where he graduated in 2001.
He is a former professional cyclist and has competed in a number of major sports events including the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and 1994 Commonwealth Games. He also won the National Road Racing Championships.
Simeon is now married with three children (all girls!) and maintains a keen interest in sport – treating many varied sports injuries at the Active Healthcare Clinic (which was established in 1987). He is passionate about helping each individual to achieve their optimum health and fitness levels through Osteopathic practice.
Laurence qualified in 1993 and began her work in Kent where she developed an interest in “visceral” Osteopathy which led her to treat conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Gynaecological problems.
She has worked as an instructor at the European School of Osteopathy (which is where she had previously trained) and undertook further studies in Naturopathy (nutrition) – qualifying as a Naturopath in 1996.
Laurence is in demand as a lecturer and has taught at both pre and post-graduate level in Maidstone and in London, and has previously been invited to lecture to over 300 healthcare professionals in Milan. She is currently a lecturer of Visceral Osteopathy, for the Masters Course, at the W.S.O. in Vienna.
Laurence now practices at Active Healthcare Clinic since its recent merger with Bramley Clinic.
Kevin trained at the European School of Osteopathy and qualified in 1993. He established a practice in Horsham, West Sussex and has also practiced in Harley Street, London.
Upon returning to Sheffield in 1999, he established Bramley Clinic with Laurence Fourdrignier which has recently merged with Active Healthcare Clinic.
Kevin uses a range of musculoskeletal treatments learned throughout his career including trigger point acupuncture and applied kinesiology (the application of nutritional supplements to aid physiological balance).
