Physical health and wellbeing for
women and families
I'm a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Sport, Exercise and Women's Health. My focus is to support you and your family through different stages of life, from childhood and teens to adulthood, pregnancy, post baby, menopause and into older age. I'm here to help you with your physical wellbeing through these different stages and help you and your family be at your best.
I specialise in workshops, courses and webinars to help women. These are often done in conjunction with fellow Health Care and Exercise Professionals, ensuring high quality content that you can trust.

Aussie born and British based, I’ve been a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 25 years. I was drawn to Physio through a love of exercise and the outdoors, fascination with health and a desire to help others be painfree and achieve their goals, whatever they may be. After studying for my primary degree in Physiotherapy (University of Queensland, 1995), I worked and travelled through Australia, Asia and Europe, working in the NHS and private sector in Australia and the UK.
Moving permanently to the UK in 2005, I specialised in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy for women, children and young adults. I managed The Sports Medicine Clinic at University of Bristol for many years, working with people of all abilities - from the inactive to Olympic gold medallists, and many in between. I'm most proud of the work we did helping women overcome injury and reach their potential in elite sport, setting up successful initiatives to promote female sports participation and collaborating on projects such as Bristol 10km and Half Marathons.
During these years, I completed a Masters in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy (Cardiff University, 2011). My research focussed on what women with families need to support them to exercise and overcoming physical difficulties and other barriers they face.
As an active mum of 2 children, I understand the demands on your body, focus and time.
I work closely with Nutritionists, Dietitians, Medical Doctors, Midwives, Sports Physicians, Psychologists, Coaches, Pilates Instructors, other Specialist Physios and Personal Trainers. I have a professional and personal connection with This Mum Runs (most recently advising on their App) and volunteer with Avon Tennis.
