A little bit about me...

I am an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist, graduating from King’s College University London with a 1st class honours, and have since obtained my Masters (MSc) with distinction in Advanced Physiotherapy.

My career spans both NHS and private sectors. I work at a major NHS London teaching hospital as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist alongside Neurosurgeons and Orthopaedic consultants in spinal surgery and musculoskeletal triage. My private experience includes setting up Forest Hill Physiotherapy, as well as working for London International Patient Services as their principle physiotherapist. I treat a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions from adolescents to older adults, from work related nagging neck pain to sports injuries and everything in between.

I am also a trained Pilates instructor, with 8 years of experience teaching both class and 1:1 pilates sessions, and acupuncturist with over 6 years experience. I am registered with the HCPC (Health Care Professions Council), CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapists), AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists) and the APPN (Advanced Physiotherapist Practice Network).

Prevention is better than cure is my mantra and following holistic evidence-based practice is my mission.
