I am a Physiotherapist with over 30 years experience. Since graduating from the University of Sydney 1993, I have worked extensively in both the public sector and private practice in Sydney and London, treating high-level athletes, dancers and West End performers as well as people with occupational injuries and chronic pain. I have run my own private practice here in the Inner West since 2008.

I have a particular interest in functional rehabilitation, posture, and the mind-body connection. Through my clinical practice I have developed a growing fascination with the way we use language in treatment and exercise.   

I have undertaken further study in Clinical Pilates and Women’s Health and these skills underpin my treatment approach. My experience as a hands-on manual therapist integrates with and enhances my skills in rehabilitation, Clinical Pilates and exercise therapy. Movement really is medicine and the way we move (or don’t move) is inextricably linked to our wellbeing.

A typical physiotherapy session with me begins with a thorough musculoskeletal assessment and a discussion about your goals for treatment. I seek to give you strategies and advice to assist your recovery, manage pain and get you moving again. My treatment is underpinned by evidence-based practice and aims to treat you as a whole person, not just an injured spine/arm/knee. Together, we tailor a rehabilitation plan that empowers you to take control of your injury. Where appropriate, I will liaise with other health care providers to optimise your recovery.
