I always wanted to be a Physiotherapist due to my love of human movement from years of many different sports growing up, a love for the sciences and my caring nature to help people. I graduated from Nottingham University Physiotherapy School in 2004 (BSc Hons) and started work in the NHS gaining valuable experience in all areas of Physiotherapy. I then headed to work as a Physiotherapist in Val D'Isere for 2 ski seasons. New Zealand then followed where I arrived into Christchurch just before the Earthquake which was an unforgettable experience personally and professionally: It was an incredible gift to have the opportunity to treat and support many of the victims at the most devastating time of their lives.
Once arriving back to London in 2012 for the London Olympics, I completed a course that revolutionised my practice The Integrated System’s Model Series of courses (ISM) which has moulded my practice. It helps me to solve any patient's puzzle of pain or dysfunction and allows me to get to the heart of their problem. I then completed Yoga Teacher Training which complemented the ISM assessment and Physio Flow Yoga started in Weybridge to aid my patients in their rehabilitation.
With years of musculo-skeletal experience, I gained deeper understanding of the pelvic floor and core musculature and the role they can play in many conditions. I trained extensively to specialise into Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological (previously Women's Health) Physiotherapy treating lots of different conditions. In 2018, I experienced pregnancy and labour and so understand how hard it is to get the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles back to a good strength and so love to assess and treat Post-natal ladies (Mummy MOT's) and teach Mum and Baby Yoga to get women exercising safely post natally.
I love to keep fit, teaching 4 yoga classes weekly, cycling, swimming and running. I have completed a marathon, Triathlons, Surrey 100, cycled from John O'Groats to Lands End and this helps me understand how important it is for all my clients to get back to the sport they love.
