I have always been surrounded by movement and drawn to the study of it, being the daughter of a classically trained ballet dancer and theatre director. In 2008 I qualified as a Physiotherapist and completed my Masters’ degree in 2016, becoming one of only two Masters qualified Pelvic Health Specialist Physiotherapists in Wales.
When I started working in hospitals throughout South Wales I was lucky to meet Caron James, an astounding clinical specialist who taught me how to make a crucial difference to people’s lives by restoring their pelvic health; resolving incontinence and other bladder issues, treating vaginal prolapse symptoms, preventing constipation and healing pelvic and sexual pain. I quickly specialised in male and female pelvic pain, including pain in pregnancy, and worked in the only Welsh multidisciplinary pelvic pain clinic alongside consultants who shared my passion.
Pelvic biomechanics fascinate me and I’ve been lucky to work with athletes from local right up to international level, optimising their pelvic movement and stability to enhance their athletic performance. It’s incredibly fulfilling seeing my clients reach their athletic goals – getting that PB, climbing that mountain.
I’m committed to staying at the forefront of Physiotherapy in an ever-evolving industry. Collaborating with leaders in the field within the UK and internationally ensures that I can provide life-changing treatment for my clients.
I joined the team at St Joseph’s Hospital in 2014 and also work with Agile Therapy Ltd.
