Inspired by my own successful treatment, I began training to be an osteopath. After two years of working as a healthcare professional, I prolapsed a disc in my lumbar spine. My osteopath suggested I try Pilates to strengthen my hypermobile body, which I connected with. I then continued my journey with training at APPI and Polestar Pilates in mat work and Pilates studio equipment.
I have over 10 years experience treating a variety of musculoskeletal complaints in various settings. These range from GP surgeries, Pilates studios, ballet schools, private physiotherapy and osteopathy clinics, and multidisciplinary practices.
I enjoy seeing patients from all walks of life and believe in treating the whole person instead of simply the diagnosis. I work with my patients to find the underlying cause of the problem and to avoid reoccurring episodes.
I use a variety of osteopathic techniques that include safe joint mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue and fascial release techniques, medical acupuncture and cranial approaches.
I am also studying for a psychology degree and practice yoga and Pilates every day.
