Dr Amanda Watson

Amanda Watson is incredibly passionate about chiropractic. Her focus in practice has been to better understand how children’s bodies function and the steps the nervous system goes through as a child grows. Amanda has enjoyed working in strong family focused practices in Sydney, Newcastle and Gunnedah.

Amanda’s passion grew into a new education-based business called Empowering Mums in 2015. Through Empowering Mums Amanda provides tools parents can implement at home to help their child thrive.

Amanda has focused her post-graduate training on paediatric chiropractic. She is currently completing her Diplomate of Chiropractic Paediatric Neurodevelopment.

Amanda brings her knowledge as a chiropractor, the teachings from Empowering Mums and her post-graduate training to the families of the Hunter.


Dr Bridget Houlden

Bridget Houlden grew up in Bendigo, a regional town in Central Victoria. Born into a family full of chiropractors, it’s fair to say that chiropractic has formed the foundation of her philosophy on health and life in general.

On finishing her chiropractic studies at RMIT Melbourne, Bridget spent some time practicing in the UK. The lure of a passionate family practice in a beachside community drew Bridget to sunny Newcastle to work at ACCC.

Bridget’s standout moments in her professional development include working in several fabulous paediatric practices as a student, a stint in India collaborating with some incredible colleagues to deliver chiropractic care to remote communities, and sitting her proficiency board exams in London.

She loves adjusting kids, babies and pregnant mums, and is currently undertaking a post-graduate Functional Neurology Program. We cannot wait for her to share her insights and wisdom to the beautiful families at ACCC.
