Working in Pelvic Health was not somewhere I thought life would take me, and I’m so grateful it has. It’s more than my profession, it’s my passion. It is wonderfully fulfilling rehabilitating embarrassing or painful pelvic issues to allow people to return to complete and unrestricted lives.

As the daughter of a classically trained ballet dancer and theatre director I have always been surrounded by movement and interested in the study of it. I qualified as a Physiotherapist at the University of Nottingham in 2008, and this year completed my Masters degree the University of Bradford, becoming one of only two Masters qualified Pelvic Health Physiotherapists in Wales.

Specialist pelvic health physio is the “Gold standard” first-line treatment for conditions such as incontinence or prolapse. One in three women suffer from incontinence, up to 50% have a prolapse and many have pain with intimacy. Many men live with chronic prostatitis or incontinence after prostate surgery. These conditions can be treated and often resolve with specialist physiotherapy – why wait to start your recovery?

As part of my commitment to Physiotherapy and my clients I am constantly engaging in continuing education. I speak at conferences and local events, run evening seminars and weekend courses to provide specialist education to other professionals. I engage with the international community of physiotherapists as part of the public relations team for the UK Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP) specialist interest group, also running their research-based twitter feed @JPOGP and work for the associated medical Journal.
