B. App Sci. Chiro. Spinal Wellness Chiropractor
Veronica was born and raised in rural Victoria, Australia. As a young girl Veronica witnessed first hand the benefits of spinal adjustments on the recovery from ill health of a family member. The impression from this experience was so profound that Veronica decided to work in this field of health care. Upon graduating from high school Veronica attended The Phillip Institute of Technology in Melbourne Australia and graduated as a Chiropractor in 1990.
Since graduating, Veronica has completed extensive post graduate training in spinal care during pregnancy, paediatrics, various techniques including spinal biophysics and spinal/postural correction, nutrition, diagnostics updates, philosophy as well as prevention and wellness based holistic health care. Veronica is a respected and inspiring public speaker in the field of holistic health care and speaks nationally and in the local community regularly.
After practicing in both Australia and England Veronica and her husband Scott and their two children have settled in Canterbury. In 1999 Veronica and Scott established the Hope Spinal Wellness Practice. It was our purpose to inspire and educate the community that a healthy life comes from nurturing our own inborn healing potential. Our ethos is not only helping people with symptoms but also truly understanding the cause of ill health and correcting that. Our focus is on teaching people how to be well again.
Scott believes in creating a positive and friendly environment for healing. He shares his enthusiasm and energy for life with all who meet him. Scott is a living example of being fit for life. He is an athlete in his own right and has completed two Ironman Triathlons, is a skilled motocross and BMX rider. Scott, is also a competitive slalom water skier running into 13 meters on a regular basis. He is also a keen snow boarder and you will see him regularly at the gym. As a result of his son’s interest in cricket, Scott trained as a juniors cricket coach in 2011 and now manages the under 11’s cricket side at Street End Cricket Club. Scott is always working to motivate and inspire others to stretch their health and fitness boundaries and looks forward to meeting you.
I trained at Canterbury College as a beauty and sports massage therapist gaining a BTEC National diploma in beauty therapy sciences. My focus is now predominantly on sports, spine and therapeutic massage.
I believe that massage is a necessity rather than a luxury and can dramatically improve your quality of life. I also work at the Kingsmead Sports and Leisure centre and it makes me realise the reality, importance and benefits of staying fit and healthy over your lifetime, which I know is also a principle shared at Hope Spinal Wellness. I enjoy meeting people at different stages in their wellness programme and being part of their progress and improvement.
I first heard of Hope Spinal Wellness through the Leisure Centre and then my dad became a patient. He went to Hope for spinal adjustments and a course of treatment and he would talk to me about his progress and show me his stretching exercises. As his care progressed he was clearly feeling better and it showed in his outlook.
Outside of work I enjoy going to the gym, aerobic classes and meeting up with friends. I am available on Monday pm, Wednesday pm, Thursday and Friday am, please call the office for an appointment.
I have been working as a receptionist and assistant at Hope Spinal Wellness since 2008. I started chiropractic care with Veronica fin 2006 for pain and problems with my low back, headaches and fatigue. There began a new and bigger understanding of health, healing and my own potential for improvement. I have made incredible progress personally and with my health. Since joining the team at Hope Spinal Wellness as a chiropractic assistant m y healing journey has expanded even further.
I very much look forward to meeting and seeing you with personal understanding and a big smile.

Simon was born and brought up in Bristol and now lives in Ashford with his wife Rachel. As a child, Simon experienced the benefits of regular adjustments, eliminating what was considered ‘normal’ headaches. Simon began to see that Chiropractic was not just about relieving pain and discomfort, but about keeping the spine free of interference so that the body was able to do its own marvelous work of self-healing, thereby producing vitality and a state of wellbeing. As a result he enjoys adjusting people of all ages especially children, as he knows from his personal experience the importance of Chiropractic care at an early age.
Simon was raised in a medical family, his dad a GP, his brother an anesthetist, and his other brother a Chiropractor, Simon saw that Chiropractic was best placed to provide true preventative health care.
Simon graduated from the University of Glamorgan in 2007 with an honors degree. He has gained numerous awards, including ‘Excellence in Radiology’ from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. He also received an award for the ‘Best Adjusting Skills and ‘Best Chiropractic Clinician’ from his peers upon graduating. He still spends well over 30 hours a year attending conferences to continue to learn & provide the best possible care for his patients.
Simon enjoys a very active lifestyle, he has played hockey at a regional level and has traveled around the world, from climbing mountains in the Alps to trekking in the Amazonia basin. He is a keen photographer and currently is getting his hands dirty by growing his own vegetables on his allotment! He is actively involved in his local church in Ashford. Simon is registered with the General Chiropractic Council. He is also a member of the United Chiropractic Association.
