ABOUT

I am a Pilates instructor and Sports Therapist with 15+years experience. I have worked in community public health and private healthcare settings in Musculoskeletal treatment and rehabilitation and Pilates has had a significant role in much of what I have delivered as a Therapist. Pilates has and continues to influence my own personal experience with exercise and movement and I continued to practise and to teach Pilates throughout my two pregnancies. I have helped hundreds of people over the years to move with greater ease and less pain through a combination of manual therapy and movement and continue to do so both in person and virtually through my online platform.

I spent 25 years as a Mental Health nurse in the NHS where I recognised the importance of physical activity on psychological well being. 

My approach to teaching has a strong emphasis on the mind-body connection. Due to its low impact and controlled movement method, Pilates provides huge psychological as well as physical benefits and is suitable for everyone. 

Living a very active lifestyle myself, I decided that on leaving my role within the NHS, I would pursue a second career in movement education. Pilates was an obvious choice and I thoroughly enjoy adapting and modifying Pilates movements to either add challenge or to ensure inclusivity for those whose movement patterns are limited.
