Masters Degree in Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapy
Clinical Pilates Instructor
What type of patients do you treat at FitRight HQ?
I particularly love treating pre and postnatal women, and helping women of any age to manage vaginal prolapse and urinary incontinence. I was one of the first physiotherapists in Perth to be trained in pessary management for vaginal prolapse and I now offer this important service at FitRight HQ.
Where and what days do you work?
I teach Bump&Me, Baby&Me and Empower classes at Ardross. I am available for appointments at FitRight HQ on Thursday afternoons and Fridays.
What has your journey as a Physiotherapist looked like so far?
For most of the last 13 years, I have worked in private Physiotherapy clinics in Perth and London, treating people with a variety of different pelvic floor muscle issues (bladder and bowel problems, painful sex, vaginal prolapse etc) as well as doing pregnancy and postnatal assessments for exercise prescription and to manage common aches and pains in the childbearing year. This has now culminated in the opening of a clinic in Applecross called FitRight HQ Womens Health Centre, where I can treat Women’s Health Physiotherapy clients alongside three other Women’s Health and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists, and a midwife who is a Lactation Consultant. The ultimate dream job!
I love empowering women to be proactive about their pelvic floor health, and am working hard to help to bridge the gap between the fitness industry and the pelvic health industry.
What do you love most about working with FitRight?
I absolutely love feeling like I’m making a positive impact on someone’s experience in the childbearing years and beyond, and that I’m doing my little part to help prevent these women from suffering with common pelvic floor muscle related issues in the future. If we can empower women earlier in life to change habits and optimise their muscles, then at menopausal age hopefully they can avoid common problems like prolapse and incontinence that maybe their mothers and grandmothers suffered from.
