Hello, I am Lorna Pullman and I qualified as a Foot Health Practitioner from the SMAE Institute in 2007. Previous to this, I taught for 18 years, specialising in the education of Deaf children. I have a B.A. Hons in Education & Audiology and a M.A. in Education.
I run two foot clinics treating patients with foot problems. My clinic in Lymington, Hampshire covers the New Forest and Solent areas. I also run a mobile Orthotics and Footwear Clinic covering, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. This is every other month.
A foot health practitioner cares for your feet in a similar way to a chiropodist or podiatrist. I deal with all types of foot pain and discomfort, including corns, bunions, Athlete’s Foot, toenail infections and heel pain. I also supply orthotics, orthotic footwear, specialist socks and anti-fungal nail polishes.
Continuous professional development (CPD) is an important part of being a Foot Health Practitioner. Since qualifying, I have also trained in Biomechanics, Nail Bracing for ingrowing toenails, Paraffin Wax Treatments and more, adding these to the services I offer.
I am not a chiropodist or podiatrist but I am a member of the Open College of Foot Health Professionals (MCFHP) and a member of the British Association of Foot Health Professionals (MAFHP). I am bound by the Code of Ethics, Rules of the Association and professionally insured. I provide a highly professional service where comfort, safety, hygiene and confidentiality are paramount.
