About Me

I qualified as a physiotherapist from King’s College Hospital in 1991 and early on developed a passion for working in the area of neurology.

The buzz and enjoyment comes from being a catalyst to allow an individual to maximise their potential. Enabling an individual to participate in activities that enhance their quality of life regardless of their neurological condition or injury is inspiring and motivating.

I actively pursue continuing education and professional development and have completed Bobath training to an advanced level. I work in the NHS part time as well as working independently. I am based in Worthing, West Sussex.

I have a special interest in exercise and enabling those with neurological problems to maximise their fitness which is complemented by being a Certified Classical Pilates Instructor.

As a Pilates instructor I am comprehensively trained, which means I have completed training on all the equipment and mat which encompasses the whole Pilates system. I constantly maintain and expand my knowledge and skills by attending training with renowned international trainers. I teach Pilates to the healthy population, to those with injury and to individuals with neurological problems. Where appropriate aspects of Pilates can also be used in treatment.

Pilates was a personal passion that has become an absorbing professional avenue. My skills as a physiotherapist in neurology enhance my ability as a Pilates instructor, my development as a Pilates instructor has deepened my understanding of movement which contributes to my practice as a physiotherapist.

I lecture to other physiotherapists, other health professionals and Pilates instructors on neuro physiotherapy and Pilates.
