After graduating in 1992 I relocated from Wellington where I grew up, to the amazing place I now call home – Hawkes Bay. I am married with 2 adult sons and enjoy learning (I’m always keeping up with research or learning something new) walking, boating, water skiing and wakeboarding and more recently I have taken up cycling.

I began my career initially working in rest homes.  I then moved into a general physiotherapy role at the Hastings Hospital before moving to a private practice.  I have worked locally in Havelock North for 20+ years successfully treating and rehabilitating patients with all kinds of pelvic health issues, sprains, strains, injuries and pain.

I am a firm believer in ‘knowledge is power’ and therefore have worked hard to learn and developed specialised skills and knowledge through clinical experience and post graduate training in all areas of pelvic health.  This includes ante and post natal health, pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, sexual pain and dysfunction, bladder and bowel continence management and men’s pelvic health.  I believe pelvic health concerns should be able to be openly discussed, just like any other health issue so I strive to provide an environment where all my patients feel comfortable, respected and cared for.

Clients can be referred by their specialist, GP, midwife or other health care professional, or can contact me directly for a private consultation without referral.

My goal is to holistically empower those with any health issues to reduce symptoms and improve their quality of life 
so that they can be the best version on themselves possible.

Because …. it’s never too early or too late to start working towards the healthiest version of you.

Whether it’s an injury, pain or a pelvic health issue, all affect our emotional and physical wellbeing.  At Inside Out Physiotherapy the goal is to help you repair|restore|renew from the Inside Out.

Best wishes
