I qualified with a degree in Physiotherapy from Bath University in 1996, and worked at St Mary's Hospital, and St John & St Elizabeth's Hospital, before specialising in Cancer at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London. I enjoyed working with a wide range of patients, young and old, high performers and the more frail, and developed a wide range of physiotherapy skills. After time out to raise a family, I returned to work at LOROS Hospice, Leicester, where I worked for 8 years using Physiotherapy, Bowen Therapy and Acupuncture to treat a wide range of symptoms, eg: pain, restricted movement, nausea, hot sweats, deconditioning, fatigue, and breathlessness. I qualified as a PINC Physiotherapist in 2017, and have a passion to help people after cancer diagnosis to return to a full and active life, to the best of their potential, whether they are newly diagnosed, or nearer the end of life.
I enjoy working from home, and am able to give more time to you in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Sessions usually last no less than an hour.

PINC Physiotherapist, 2017
I qualified as a specialist physiotherapist with PINC & STEEL, as I wanted to work with people closer to the time of their diagnosis, realising there is often a gap in the physiotherapy available for patients, who want to regain their fitness. www.pinc&steel.com
