Health, Wellbeing, Performance

I'm a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Sport, Exercise and Women's Health. With 25 + years experience. I support women through 1:1 consultations, Masterclasses, written pieces and speaking events, helping them stay pain free, energised and active.

About me

Aussie born and British based, I’ve been a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 25 years. I specialise in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy for women and teenage girls. 

Qualifications, experience, research

After studying for my primary degree in Physiotherapy (University of Queensland, 1995), I worked in the NHS and private sector in Australia and the UK, as well as for local and national track and field, swimming, netball, hockey, tennis and rugby teams. I completed my Masters in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy at Cardiff University (2011). This included research on supporting women in maintaining and improving physical health and wellbeing at key life stages.

     

I led the University of Bristol Sports Medicine Clinic for many years, working with students, the wider public, including national and international athletes across numerous sports.

I provide

As an active mum of 2 sporty kids, a runner, swimmer, gym enthusiast and tennis player, I understand the demands on your body and time. I'm keen to share my knowledge and expertise to manage pain, injuries and the unique musculo-skeletal health issues women face.  I'm HCPC registered, and member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, British Association of Sport and  Exercise Medicine and Physios in Sport. I'm registered with some insurance companies e.g. AXA PPP, WPA, Simply Health.
