Meet the Team

Quentin Standish-Hayes

Quentin graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in 1987 and has been principal chiropractor at Casterbridge Chiropractic since 1989.

He has always maintained a deliberately diverse practice, enjoying caring for patients of all ages and for the whole spectrum of biomechanical disorders.

He spent some years teaching final year students at AECC, and remains actively involved in advancing his knowledge and expertise through continuing professional development. Outside work he enjoys a variety of sports and will often be found walking the hills and coastline of Dorset with his dogs.

“Chiropractic care is about enabling people to function at their best and stay healthy. Often when patients visit me for the first time it’s because they’ve developed a new pain or injury and my first goal is of course to help them recover from that. However, patients are more than a collection of symptoms and logic and experience tells us that to stay better takes more than just hope. For this reason I like to seek out the reasons why a patient’s problem has developed in the first place and give them the guidance and support to help prevent problems in the future.

I’m delighted and honoured to have so many patients who have trusted me to look after them over the last 30 years and continue to do so.”

I am a new patient and have found the care and treatment from Quentin extremely impressive.  The thorough case history was taken very carefully.

Annabelle Thorne

Annabelle graduated with a Sport Therapy degree from York University in Toronto, Canada. She worked for many years with elite level athletes in Sport Injury management and rehabilitation before going on to study for her Masters degree in Chiropractic from the world renowned Anglo-European college of Chiropractic in Bournemouth.

“My passion for healing began following a knee injury which played havoc on my competitive career as a track and field athlete. However, I was inspired by the motivation I saw in other athletes and I decided to dedicate myself to helping them also recover from injury and return to play.

“I became a fully certified instructor in Mat and Reformer Pilates, and spent my time educating others on how to maximise their potential through various movement therapies, aiding and speeding their recovery. I have worked with professional athletes including those from the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey team and Toronto football club to name a few.

“In recent years, I have taken a particular interest in paediatrics and child motor/muscle development in sport.”

Aside from her expertise in Sport Injuries, Annabelle is a fully licensed Active Release Therapy (ART) provider, she is certified in Kinesiotaping at levels KS1, 2 and 3, she is qualified in Dry needling (Western acupuncture). Annabelle is dedicated to the treatment of all ailments affecting the young and the elderly to ensure efficiency of movement in day to day life.

I wish I had come here before. The treatment is first class and I would recommend it to anybody who has a problem. Many thanks Annabelle.

Kate Lewis BSc Msc

Ever since a young age I have loved sport. With that I tried almost everything, from ballet to kickboxing, netball to football but I quickly found my love was within athletics.

I came to find chiropractic after suffering an injury whilst competing as a national Heptathlete within athletics. At age 16 I received my first treatment and I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do.

I understand what sportspeople put their bodies through day in day out. I use chiropractic to be able to keep them doing what they love with injury prevention, rather than watching at the side lines.

It’s not just all about the sport for me, but it’s also about improving day to day quality of life. To use chiropractic to allow patients go about their daily lives pain free.

I graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic with a BSc degree in Human Sciences and an MSc masters in Chiropractic. I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and a member of the British Chiropractic Association.

After a career in the hustle and bustle of London, I moved to Dorset some years ago to be near family and have a change of direction.  Having retrained as a massage therapist, attaining a BTEC in Sports Massage Therapy, I’ve been part of the team at Casterbridge Chiropractic for over five years.

Outside the clinic I enjoy keeping fit and spending time with my family.


If you need that extra time and care, the practitioners give you the extra minutes you desire.
