Samantha Fennell

We are delighted to welcome Sam to Rise Osteopathy in Forest Hill. She has been working locally in South East London for over 10 years and has acquired a long list of loyal patients.

Samantha graduated with an honours degree from the University College of Osteopathy (previously known as the British School of Osteopathy) in 2008. She went on to study at the Osteopathic Centre for Children where she gained a Masters in Paediatric Osteopathy.

As well as working in private practice, Sam also teaches on both the undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses at the University College of Osteopathy in the UK and Europe.

Sam uses a mix of osteopathic techniques which she tailors to benefit each patient individually. She works with patients of all ages, but has a keen interest in treating babies and children and in particular children with special physical and educational needs. Her passion is to see osteopathy recognised in remote areas of the world so she regularly works alongside a UK medical team in Burma with displaced indigenous people.

When not working as an osteopath Sam heads up The Jamii Project, a social enterprise working with young people not in education, employment or training. She set up the Jamii Cafe, a community based non-for-profit cafe in Honor Oak, South East London. Here, marginalised young people can work and gain skills and become part of their local community. Sam also made it her mission to sell “the best artisan coffee this side of the river”!

Sam works at Rise Osteopathy Forest Hill on Garlies Road SE23.
