I am 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!

I enjoy 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:

  1. Learning ways to manage the stress response and reduce the focus on pain to then be able to manage and function better

  2. Participating in movement, exercise, physical activity in a sensible way and ‘paced’ way to reduce pain hypersensitivity and return to normal activities

  3. 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.

I love 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.

I am grateful that I work with a team of individuals that have a unique and individual way to bring out the best in everyone.

I enjoy 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….

Q: What do skeletons say before eating a meal?

A: Bone appetit!!!!
