Welcome to Purley Osteopaths

We are passionate about making a bigger difference in the lives of our clients and pride ourselves on providing lasting and self-sufficient solutions to long-term lower back pain. We work on a programme basis so that you are not only out of back pain for good, but also to enable you to start living a life of freedom and enjoyment without the fear that your pain will hold you back.

We offer a complimentary 45-minute consultation as a service to anyone who is curious about how we might be able to serve them. We ask for a minimum donation to our chosen charity ‘MIND’ as a way of ensuring that this time is valued and allows us to support a cause that is close to our hearts. The consultation is intended to gain clarity about your situation and to enable us to understand want you want and need. At the end of the consultation we will use our expert opinion, based on more than two decades of experience, to advise you on the best plan for you to move forward.

Call now to book your consultation on 0208 396 6668.

If you have a more recent pain or injury issue then we can also offer you an appointment with our fantastic associate Thomas. Your initial appointment will consist of discussion about what you’re experiencing and your general health and medical history, followed by an examination to be able to give you a working diagnosis and then treatment (as long as treatment is appropriate), advice and/or a referral. Follow up appointments consist of a chat to find out how you have been followed by appropriate assessment and treatment and/or advice. You can book online with Thomas using the link below:

What To Expect

Our unique programmes

We use our three-step system to:

1. Identify the core of the pain that is affecting you.

2. Restore flexibility, strength and health in your body to resolve your pain.

3. Empower you with the mindset to provide a lasting and self-sufficient resolution to your pain.

Appointments with Thomas

A detailed case history will be taken including questions about your past medical history and current lifestyle, followed by a full assessment to help form a diagnosis and then treatment and advice that is appropriate. Follow up appointments will start with a quick review to discuss changes in your complaints since your previous appointment and then move onto most appropriate treatment and advice.

 What does Osteopathic treatment involve?

If it is determined to be safe and appropriate then you will be treated with a variety of manual therapy techniques (mobilisation, soft tissue techniques and manipulations). Osteopathic treatment can be divided into three main bodily systems; musculoskeletal (muscles, joints, ligament etc.), visceral (the organs and their attachments) and craniosacral (the cranium and the meninges). Based on the case history and findings from the assessment a treatment strategy will be proposed and explained that is tailored to you.

You may be required to undress to your underwear for your treatment – this allows for full assessment and treatment – so please wear suitable clothes or bring a t-shirt and shorts with you if you would prefer to wear those. You may also bring a friend or relative with you to any of your appointments.

Meet Your Osteopaths

Simon Rogers

For as long as I can remember, I have valued empathy and connection with people as it’s a way in which I connect to the joy of life. For me, the same is also true of sport and exercise. So, when I was deciding what I wanted to ‘do’ when I grew up, I very quickly concluded that I wanted to be a health practitioner. I wanted to be able to support people by creating the feeling of empathy, connection and vitality in their bodies so that they could live lives full of freedom and enjoyment. I have spent more than a decade in study and lecturing in Europe as well successfully working with thousands of clients. On moving back to the UK, my wife Amy and I created our unique system and programmes to support our clients to lasting and self-sufficient solutions to their long-term lower back pain challenges. Our clients are now not just surviving but thriving in their lives and we’ve been honoured to witness their journeys out of pain and into freedom and enjoyment.


Amy Rogers

I have always been hugely interested in health and well-being and the importance of both your mind and body being ‘fit’ and active. This has led me down many fascinating paths but, combining my knowledge and experience of being a practitioner for nearly a decade, I have developed a hugely fulfilling ‘career’, typically helping Mum’s overwhelmed by long-term pain and stress. I am a huge advocate of a holistic approach to life and healthcare and I aim to work in partnership with my lovely clients until they are fighting fit! When I am not in clinic you can usually find me meeting new people, exploring new places, teaching Pilates, cooking (well, usually mainly eating), or reading and learning to contribute to our Personal Growth Book Club!


Thomas Botfield

Thomas joined our team in October 2018. He is a fully qualified and insured Osteopath who treats a variety of ages and conditions using a range of techniques including a ‘hands on’ structural approach combined with a more subtle functional approach as well as advising on stretches and exercises to get the best results he can for his patients. He continues to build his professional knowledge with additional training, including Medical Acupuncture, and is particularly interested in working with performers such as dancers, actors, acrobats and musicians.
