I qualified in 1997 and have gained lots of experience working in the NHS and the private sector. Majority of my working time has been in musculoskeletal. I gained a Post-graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2020 and have completed all 3 stages of the APPI Matwork series.

I have been teaching pilates over the past year and really enjoy seeing the improvement that people make. I look forward to helping people on their pilates journey, and hopefully you will feel the many benefits of pilates that I have found.

I have 15 years experience as a Physiotherapist working with musculoskeletal conditions.

 I have recently taken up the position of Specialist Physiotherapist in Musculo Skeletal Disorders.

In 2011 I completed my masters in Advanced Clinical Practice which focused on exercise therapy for treating back pain.

I have been doing Pilates for a number of years and personally noticed great benefits, particularly during and after pregnancies.


I completed my APPI training in 2015 and have really enjoyed teaching Pilates since then. 


It's great to see people enjoying something that has such positive physical benefits.

I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2015 and have worked in many different areas within the NHS including Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal

I have been a Specialist Physiotherapist in Neurological conditions in the NHS for the past 4 years. I treat patients who have had strokes, heads injuries and spinal cord injuries as well as those with longer term conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinsons.

Applying the principles of Pilates when treating these patients has really helped me to understand the importance of movement patterns and how our bodies adapt to move in whatever way they can. Practicing Pilates is a great way to maintain efficient movement / Improve movement patterns. I know from my own practice the benefits of Pilates help to keep me strong and flexible.
At the start of 2023 I completed my APPI training and have really enjoyed teaching Pilates since. There's lots of benefits of pilates and its great to see clients improving and gaining confidence.
