I have nearly 25 years of experience as Physiotherapist working in a range of areas, and have a very unique skill set to support you to reach your goals. I work holistically and functionally using a specialised top to toe approach so you can take the improvements from our sessions and continue to build on those successes daily. I draw from a range of tools including hands-on release and mobilisations, acupuncture and dry-needling, exercise, yoga, Pilates, mindfulness and relaxation techniques to create a treatment programme that suits you. I have also completed post-graduate pelvic floor rehabilitation and continence. These extra tools give me additional and unique insight into what may be influencing your particular issues.
We all have potential to recover. Pain and restriction, fatigue or depression do not have to be part of daily life. The key is finding the root cause and piecing together your puzzle to restore function, comfort and ease with movement. Together we find great ways for you to release, relax, re-connect and recover.
I commonly see people who have experienced long term, complex or recurrent issues and are keen to try a different approach. I work differently to many hands-on health professionals and Physiotherapists by providing 1 hour initial assessments. The 1 hour initial assessment allows me to complete a thorough assessment and treat. We also introduce exercise, functional retraining and self management strategies to help maximise the benefit of treatment. Investing this time at the start using a whole body approach means we get to the root cause of issues far more quickly. I see results sooner and clients are motivated to continue self management away from the sessions because they experience positive results.
I have worked in both Adelaide and London including the specialties of musculoskeletal, sports & spinal physiotherapy, women’s health, neurological physiotherapy and pain management and have people travel from far and wide for consultations. I work with people of all ages from older children and teenagers and men and women of all ages. I have a special interest in working with pregnant and postnatal women, athletes (especially cyclists and runners), teens and people with chronic, complex or long term issues.
I love teaching and have had the opportunity to teach undergraduate Physiotherapists, post graduate Physiotherapists in Australia and the UK and have developed and implemented new and innovative health programmes in various areas of Physiotherapy and I will be running various workshops at Energy & Motion. I am actively involved in local and international sports, health, wellbeing and Physiotherapy communities,and I am a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
Career highlights overseas included having professional articles published, assisting world renowned Physios Diane Lee and Linda-Joy Lee teaching their intensive courses in London, doing acupuncture training and yoga training with Birthlight. Personal highlights overseas included our adventures travelling including conquering mountains like Mont Ventoux on my bike and the Annapurna region by foot in Nepal and birthing and raising my two gorgeous children (you can call me biased!).
I have a strong personal focus on having a healthy mind and healthy body. I enjoy making a difference and working in partnership with you so you can discover and learn the tools to recover and re-establish vitality, ease and wellbeing.
