originally from the UK and graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 2001.
I moved to Hong Kong in 2005 and then to Singapore in 2008. I love being in
Singapore and being surrounded by so many great multi-disciplinary Health care
practitioners at Phoenix Rehab Group.
I believe in providing holistic, evidence-based care to my patients by using
hands-on manual therapy such as joint mobilization and soft tissue work, and I utilize
corrective exercises and education to treat the source of pain.
I specialize in Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Pre- and post-natal
Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates and Mindfulness for Health.
My Women’s Health experience includes Diastasis Recti management, pelvic
floor dysfunctions, incontinence and Pelvic Pain. My sessions always start with
a thorough assessment and I start each treatment session with explaining the
anatomy and function of parts of the body that need treating.
Once I have
completed the treatment, exercise and advice component, I always provide a tailored
Home Exercise Programme with Videos, pictures and concise explanations to ensure the correct muscles are being worked
at work and at home!
treating complex pain disorders and my approach to Chronic Pain management focuses
on using neuroplasticity to re-programme and reduce over-active danger signals
in the brain and nervous system. My repertoire includes Therapeutic
Neuroscience education, Mindfulness for Pain and Mindful Movement. Some of the
key themes I teach my patients are:
- Learning ways to manage the stress response and reduce the focus on
pain to then be able to manage and function better
- Participating in movement, exercise, physical activity in a sensible
way and ‘paced’ way to reduce pain hypersensitivity and return to normal
- Creating new practices e.g. Mindfulness or photography to help use the
positive aspects of neuroplasticity to calm and ‘re-wire’ NON-painful nervous
system connections and re-train the way in which your mind and body interprets
and responds to pain.
being a Physiotherapist as it aligns me with my deep aspiration of wanting
everyone to be healthy and happy.
My favorite word is ‘Eudaimonia” which Is a
Greek word, which refers to a state of being Internally content, healthy and
happy. I believe that as a Health practitioner I can help, facilitate and
provide tools for individuals to flourish and I genuinely believe this comes
from good mental and physical health.
grateful that I work with a team of individuals that have a unique and
individual way to bring out the best in everyone.
mind health and so I facilitate Mindfulness sessions at various locations in
Singapore and my personal and professional aspiration is to bring Mindfulness
for Health and Pain management to the forefront in Singapore.
In my spare
time, I enjoy running, Yoga, Pilates, practicing Mindfulness and laughing with
my family and friends. My favourite joke comes from my 7-year old daughter
before every meal….
