About me

I have always been fascinated by ‘movement’, or more specifically a lack of ease of mobility, when I observe it either in myself or in others.

When I started training for my first marathon in 1996, I was looking to find an effective method by which to manage an ongoing painful knee injury. It was at this time that I was first introduced to Pilates as a viable solution to the problem I was experiencing.

Spurred on with enthusiasm at the benefit I gained, I made the decision to train as a Pilates Instructor myself, qualifying in 2003 with Body Arts and Science International in Hong Kong.

I was keen to further extend my skill set in pursuance of finding more answers to mobility restriction and pain. I moved to Australia to embark on a degree course in Physiotherapy, graduating in 2011 from the University of Notre Dame, Perth.

Whilst living in Australia, I worked within various disciplines in private practice, including Musculoskeletal, Orthopaedics, Neurology, Respiratory, Community and Hydrotherapy. I also assisted with training and mentoring newly qualified Physiotherapists in the Pilates method.

When I returned to the UK in 2014, I started to work with the NHS which took me into both hospital and community settings. The focus being falls prevention and rehabilitation of the elderly.

Additionally, I started to work within the private sector, both in Physiotherapy and with the Pilates method. In combination these have allowed me to successfully treat patients with a variety of mobility and rehabilitation requirements, including pre and post operative hip injury, back pain, shoulder pain, scoliosis management etc.

I am also now able to treat clients comfortably in my home based Pilates Studio on a bespoke one to one basis. I am available for local home visits too.

I have a real passion for what I do. I am result oriented and always seeking new ways by which to achieve optimum levels of pain management and facilitate maximum mobility.
