I have over 14 years specialist experience in Musculoskeletal and Women’s Health Physiotherapy and I have worked in a variety of settings in the NHS and in private practice. I have my BSc (HONS) Physiotherapy and an MSc in Rehabilitation Studies (Physiotherapy in Women’s Health).
I am dedicated to providing a high standard of individualised care.
I can provide specialist antenatal assessment and treatment for low back pain and pelvic girdle pain and other musculoskeletal conditions.
I can provide exercise programmes to maintain a good strong function in the abdominals and pelvic floor muscles.
I can help you to safely and effectively maintain your fitness levels during pregnancy.
I can also provide a ‘Mummy MOT’ when you have had your baby and help you return to your fitness goals.
I can provide specialist Antenatal massages. I can also provide gift vouchers for these if you would like one for your friend or loved one.
Clinic Appointments in Cofton Hackett and Home visits available.

What is a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist?
I have a specialist interest and a wealth of experience in treating women and men with pelvic health complaints.
Here are a few reasons how I could help:
Pelvic floor dysfunction - This can be a weak pelvic floor or an overactive pelvic floor.
Recent or longstanding PGP (pelvic girdle pain, formally known as SPD)
Overactive bladder symptoms/Bladder pain.
Dyspareunia (painful sex)
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
Diastasis of recti (separation of tummy muscles)
Pelvic floor symptoms related to the menopause
Caesarean section scar tissue problems
Post Radical Prostatectomy symptoms
Urinary incontinence - leaking urine with coughing/laughing/sneezing/running or leaking on the way to the toilet.
Bowel problems such as flatal or faecal incontinence
A Mummy MOT - your personal guide to a safe and effective post-natal recovery. Including guidance on finding a level of fitness to suit you.
A lot of these problems are very common, however, they are often not talked about and they do not have to be your normal.
Please do not continue to suffer in silence, get in touch to discuss an appointment.
