After qualiying as a Chartered physiotherapist in 2003, I have spent the past 18 years working in the NHS both in large London teaching hospitals and in Trusts around Buckinghamshire - now Team Lead for the service at Milton Keynes University NHS Hospital.
I am a full member of the Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Chartered Physiotherapists (POGP) having completed many post-graduate courses including my PG Certificate. I am also registered with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Acupuncture and as such am able to use these skills both in pregnancy and after.
I have a passion for treating musculoskeletal problems and have spent my career progressing my skills in this area and have gained specific post-graduate qualifications in the specialist area of Women's and Men's Health.
For the past 12 years I have specialised in the treatment of women regarding both musculoskeletal issues throughout and post-pregnancy - including pelvic pain, low back pain, coccydynia and diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal muscles); and pelvic floor dysfunction (for women and men) which regularly results in many problems including continence issues - both bladder and bowel. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be related to pregnancy, menopause, intercourse, pain or cancer - all of which can be effectively treated with physiotherapy - transforming quality of life.
Working in conjunction with Sophie Hiscock @ TheVillageMidwife supporting women through their pregnancy and postnatally
I am HCPC and CSP registered.
In my free time I love spending time with my husband and 2 small children. I love outdoor activities, running, biking, bootcamp and pilates - which I am also trained to incorporate into my treatment and rehab plans.
