Physiotherapist Clinical Pilates teacher Acupuncture
I graduated in 1997 gaining an honours degree in Physiotherapy from Brunel University. I have worked both in the NHS and privately throughout my career. I have gained extensive experience and acquired a diverse skill set including the use of acupuncture, manipulation, fascial release and clinical Pilates.
I use my specialist knowledge to provide exercise and rehabilitation programmes that are specific to my patients, taking into consideration your pain, pathology and medical history. I have a wealth of experience in treating a wide range of conditions across all ages, varying from back and neck pain, orthopaedics and surgery, ante natal and post-natal, hip and groin, shoulder and upper limb. I took my formal Pilates training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates institute(APPI) in 2007 and over the last 16 years, I have seen the enormous rehabilitation benefits, injury prevention and performance improvement that Pilates can offer.
My special interest is in rehabilitation of recurrent injuries and helping those with long term conditions which have proved difficult to resolve. I am also a big believer in preventative healthcare and love to facilitate this as often as I can. My philosophy is to educate, empower and I am passionate about helping you to understand your body, be the best you can and prepare your body for the future.
I have specialist training in:-
Pilates for beginners-advanced
Pilates for Scoliosis
Pilates for Hypermobility
Pilates for Osteoporosis
Pilates for runners
Pilates for cyclists
Pilates for children and young people
I teach on a 121 basis and in small dedicated classes ranging from beginners to advance at The Physio Therapy Centre. I also run classes in West Sussex including balance and falls reduction. I use a range of small equipment to ensure the body is continually challenged.
