Our Physiotherapists

I am a Physiotherapist with over 20 years' experience and am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

My places of work have included the Royal Marsden Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, West Hertforshire Community NHS Trust, Peace Hospice Care and The Hospice of St Francis.

I specialise in elderly care, cancer rehabilitation, breathlessness management, disability and mobility problems, falls prevention and palliative / end-of-life rehabilitation. 

My aim is to optimise the potential of each person and improve their quality of life by focusing on what is important to them. I believe that small improvements, however small can make a big difference to someone's wellbeing. 

I am available for home visits in the St Albans, Radlett and Hemel Hempstead areas.
