Presenter Profile

Helen begun her passion for pelvic health back in 2008 whilst working at The Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust. Helen has always adopted a very caring and down to earth approach with her treatments and ensures that all care plans are tailor made to each individual.

Helen took a part time step into the private healthcare sector of pelvic health in 2010 whilst still maintaining her senior position in the NHS.

As well a being able to treat any problem in and around the pelvis, as well as the body as a whole, Helen is trained in visceral release and mobilisation, and often she will also use acupuncture/dry needling to further aid the recovery process.

Helen fully committed to her private practise in South West London in 2012. In this same year she was also very impressively chosen to be one of the official physiotherapists for the London Olympics. Helen is extremely passionate about women’s health in sport.

Since 2015, in between her full time clinical caseload, Helen provides post-graduate training with the POGP (UK’s official specialist physiotherapy interest group for pelvic health – http://pogp.csp.org.uk) to other physiotherapists around the UK & Ireland.

Helen qualified in the thoracic ring approach and the integrated systems model in 2013 (for more info:http://dianelee.ca/integrated-systems-model.php) and has since been chosen to assist teaching LJ Lee and Diane Lee on their courses (https://learnwithdianelee.com/about/)

Helen also loves Crossfit (https://www.crossfit.com) and is a certified level one Crossfit trainer.

Helen manages and mentors the team who work in London acting as clinical lead. In Dublin, Helen is the Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist heading up the pelvic health team in the prestigious Blackrock Clinic (https://www.blackrock-clinic.ie/)
