During his time at the BSO, Stuart gained experience in a variety of specialist clinics including Sports, the Royal Free Hospital, Expectant Mother’s Clinic, Children’s Clinic as well as an external community clinic based at a busy GP practice in London. Stuart was also fortunate to have participated in the NHS funded OsteoMAP project, an innovative system designed to enhance the treatment of patients with persistent pain by combining osteopathic treatment with mindfulness and acceptance based approaches.
Stuart believes osteopathy is a partnership between patient and osteopath to achieve health and understands the value of clear and understandable communication. He is passionate about helping patients reach their goals, using his experience to tailor his treatment to the needs of the individual. He is also an advocate of injury prevention and can advise exercises as part of a treatment regime.
His special interests include the treatment and recovery of sports injuries, chronic pain and helping older patients remain active. Stuart has also recently completed his Masters thesis on the rehabilitation of patients who have experienced stroke.
When he is not treating patients, Stuart can often be found under the bonnet of classic cars, playing guitars or growing chilli peppers! He also enjoys golf and collecting vinyl.

Lee Clarke B. Ost
Lee graduated from the college of osteopaths with 1st class honours in 2019. His literature review gained the highest academic mark across both the London and Staffordshire cohorts and is used as an example for current students.
Lee spent his first year in practice working within a coaching/medical team providing osteopathic care for British and Irish sprinters at Lee Valley Athletics Centre in north London. He has also established his own practice close to his home in Eton Berkshire. In January 2020 he began working with coach Linford Christie, providing performance therapy, injury prevention and rehabilitation for his elite squad of athletes at Brunel university.
Lee enjoys treating a multitude of patients and conditions. He relishes the challenge of detecting the source of his patients pain. “I view each person as an individual and consider their symptoms in association with their unique lifestyle, posture, movements and medical history. Working with different people makes my job interesting, helping them to improve their health gives me job and life satisfaction.” Outside of osteopathy Lee likes to participate in group exercise classes, walking his dogs, cooking for his family, travelling and watching competitive sports.
Lee offers appointments on Mondays 8am-3pm, Wednesday 3-10pm and Fridays 3-10pm

Laura joined the TOMClinic team in 2015. She is an experienced Registered Osteopath who graduated from the British School of Osteopathy with distinction and the silver medal award for achievement.

Laura’s approach is to gain a better understanding of the individual patient as a whole, and therefore identify things in day-to-day life that may have lead to dysfunction.
“I truly believe in treating the root cause of why someone is in pain rather than just the symptoms, which is at the foundation of Osteopathic practice”
Laura enjoys working with a variety of patients of all ages and complaints, her professional and friendly manner has made her popular with TOMClinic patients. We are fortunate to have Laura as part of the TOMClinic team.
