Meet The Team
The clinical team:
DC, MChiro, PGCert Chiro, mRCC
Doctor Of Chiropractic & Clinic Director
I have been raised with a chiropractic ‘natural first’ philosophy and whilst growing up was shown how important nutrition, sleep, exercise and the outdoors was.
Following in my family tradition, I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth with a Masters degree in Chiropractic before moving back to my home town and first love, Brighton. I have undertaken a post-graduate certificate in paediatrics and take a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy. I have since completed qualifications to use dry needling and Activator techniques, plus the Webster technique and cranial and visceral techniques which really help support the baby and pregnant mother.
I believe that prevention is always better than the cure. I especially like to remind the younger population to not dismiss their problems but get them looked at, preventing many ongoing health issues later in life.
I acquired the Clinic during 2007 and continue to treat my mother’s, Cornelia Nicholas’ patients, having since retired.
I grew up riding horses, I had a horse with back problems and after getting an osteopath out to see her I was so inspired that I knew straight away I wanted to be an osteopath. I felt the holistic approach to care osteopathy offers to both humans and animals is invaluable. I gained my Master’s degree at the University College of Osteopathy in London.
Being an osteopath has helped me realised the importance of trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. This guided me to eat healthily and enjoy exercise which led to an improved overall feeling of wellbeing. I like to encourage my clients to make these changes in their life through supporting them with osteopathy and giving advice on how to achieve this.
I am passionate about how beneficial osteopathic care is in relieving pain, rehabbing and then making sure clients never revert back to how they were when they first visited us. Also, in using it as a preventative measure to help the body work in the best way possible way and making sure clients never have problems.
When looking for a job I visited many different clinics, however none were as busy and as vibrant as Back2Balance. With a great team that puts client wellbeing at the top of the priority list (even throwing client appreciation parties) I knew I would fit right in. I love working here!
I discovered chiropractic when I was a teenager after suffering for months with severe headaches. I was amazed to have found such relief through such a simple treatment. The approach was very thorough and my whole wellbeing was taken into account throughout. It inspired me to become a chiropractor myself in order to help other people in the same way!
I graduated from AECC University College with a Masters degree in Chiropractic and moved from my hometown of Bournemouth to Brighton.
I have undertaken qualifications in dry needling and taping methods.
I have a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy. I really enjoy helping pregnant mothers and supporting them through their pregnancy and birth as well as helping babies to develop and grow.
I believe in treating the root cause of the problem as well as preventing problems instead of curing. I focus on strengthening the spine and body to allow people to progress towards a more fulfilling, pain free life and making sure they don’t revert back to where they began.
Back 2 Balance has an amazing vibe and we ensure everyone is cared for and well looked after. I am so happy to be part of an amazing team working together towards the same purpose!

Ryo therapy after an elbo injury I also studied localised cryo stimulation and offer this treatment in my own practise.i have had the great opportunity to be the massage therapist for the LTA and ATP tennis association at the nature valley tennis tournament in Eastbourne for the last 4 years which was a incredible learning experience working with professional athletes.

I am extremely excited to be joining the amazing team at the award winning back to balance. Their ethos of achieving your best possible health resonates deeply with me and the outstanding care and attentiveness to clients is inspiring. Back to balance has an amazing vibe and the team are awesome.
Taking early retirement from 25 years in a retail HR career I realised that although I had the time to do the things I always wanted to do there was something missing.
Working at Back2Balance has filled that gap being both challenging and rewarding. I love the vibe and the ethos of the working environment and it’s great meeting all the clients.
There’s a real sense that the clinicians really care for the wellbeing of everyone clients and team members alike.
Hi, I’m Gina!
I am originally from Dorset and moved to Brighton in 2001. Apart from a few years that I lived in Florida, I have been in Brighton ever since.
I was a laser and skin practitioner for 26yrs, a job I loved but sadly earlier this year I had to close; one reason for this was a painful and repetitive neck and back issue. After much deliberation I decided to try a more holistic way of managing the pain and I was really lucky to meet Becky and with her support and advice, I start my Chiropractic journey which helped me work right up to the end of my clinic’s lease.
The treatments also helped my nagging sciatica issue which in turn made my big passion, dancing a lot more pleasant. A win win situation.
Of course I miss working on skin and closely with clients but I am enjoying learning new skills and seeing clients walk out with less discomfort is the best part of this job. I still can’t believe I am actually working here and getting to know the Back2Balance team who looked after me so well this past year. I am looking forward to meeting more of our lovely clients albeit with full PPE.
