In July 2016 Mary Jane started working with Lynn Timms at her breastfeeding drop-in clinic at Langstone Church, Shore Avenue, Eastney where she assesses baby feeding and digestive difficulties.


Mary Jane has taught Osteopathy to others for many years too - at the European School of Osteopathy, with the Sutherland Cranial College, and independently in Europe and Russia.


She was a consultant and tutor at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in in Central London in 2004/5, and in 2007 she helped establish a clinic for children with additional needs and their siblings with the charity “metooandco”.
