After qualiying as a Chartered physiotherapist in 2003, I have spent the past 20 years working in the NHS both in large London teaching hospitals and in Trusts around Buckinghamshire - now Clinical Lead for the Perinatal pelvic health service across Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes NHS Trusts.

I am a  full member of the Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Chartered Physiotherapists (POGP) having completed many post-graduate courses including my PG Certificate and Advanced Clinical Practice in Pelvic Health.  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 Pelvic Health at both Bradford and Brunel Universities. As a healthcare professional it is so important to stay up to date with evidence based training and I continue to attend regular training in treating prolapse, continence and menopause related issues. I also spend much of my time in the NHS training midwives, student doctors and other newly qualified physiotherapists on the importance of pelvic floor symptom awareness and treatment options.

For the past 16 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 and prevented with physiotherapy - transforming quality of life at any age! Improving our knowledge of pelvic health and bladder care especially around the menopause can prevent and improve many symptoms that effect women at this time of life and in later years. Discussing many of these symptoms can often be 'embarassing' but I strive to be empathetic and reassuring in order to support my clients return to their individual goals.

I am HCPC, CSP  and AACP registered.

In my free time I love spending time with my husband and 2 children. I love outdoor activities, running, biking, bootcamp and pilates - which I am also trained to incorporate into my treatment and rehab plans.
