I trained at Southampton University – qualifying with a BSc (hons) in Physiotherapy in 1997. My career began at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, followed by a few years in beautiful New Zealand. It was here that I began working in the field of Women’s Health. I returned to the UK and began working full time for St George’s Healthcare in London, studying for Master’s degree alongside this. My work and studies gave me an excellent grounding in the areas of gynaecology, obstetrics (pregnancy), urology, colorectal dysfunction and breast cancer care.
I graduated with an MSc in Rehabilitation focusing on Men’s and Women’s Health & moved to take up the position of Lead Physiotherapist in Pelvic Health at Imperial College Healthcare – leading a team of 10 Specialist Physiotherapists & providing services to women in 3 acute hospitals and 3 community health clinics. I spent much of the subsequent 8 years providing clinical placements and supervision to Masters level Pelvic Health students studying at Bradford University.
A geographical move in 2014 found me in Somerset and starting my journey with Nuffield Health – the UK’s largest healthcare provider after the NHS.
My clinics are based at Taunton Hospital and I see men and women with bladder/bowel dysfunction or pelvic pain and women with pregnancy related issues. For the past 3 years I have been the Pelvic Health Lead at Nuffield Health – overseeing & mentoring the network of over 40 specialist practitioners working in this field.
Many clients find that a health condition such as incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic pain, can have a detrimental effect on their self-esteem and general wellbeing – and booking an appointment with a specialist can be a big step. It is important that I listen well to your story and carry out a thorough physical assessment. We can then work together to find a treatment plan suited to you and walk with you as you start making the journey back to health and life.
