Gowsikka trained for 4 years at the European School of Osteopathy, qualifying in 2023. She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
What influenced you to become an osteopath?
I first thought about becoming an Osteopath in my teens when I was inspired by some of my tutors. They encouraged me to aim high in life and help others, and stories of their time in healthcare convinced me to consider a career as a healthcare professional. Osteopathy gave me what I was looking for; helping individuals through all aspects of life, building relationships and learning about them physically, emotionally and mentally.
When did you join the team?
I joined North Beds Osteopaths in January 2024.
What do you enjoy most about your role at North Beds Osteopaths?
I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them on their journey through life. Supporting people and enabling them to improve the quality of their lives, step by step using the knowledge I have acquired is very rewarding.
What specialist areas of practice are you particularly interested in?
I enjoy working with patients of all ages and at all stages of life including babies, pregnant women and the general population. I like working both structurally and functionally, utilising all the techniques in my osteopathic toolbox.
How do you like to spend your spare time?
Outside of Osteopathy, I enjoy spending time with close friends and family, embracing my Sri Lankan culture and food!! Alongside that, I enjoy doing hand embroidery, cooking, going for long walks and exploring the country.
