I completed my Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy at Wits University in 2005 and then did my community service in Kokstad (where I grew up) in 2006. In 2007 I moved to London.
I initially worked in the NHS before joining the prestigious Portland Hospital for Women and Children’s Physiotherapy team in 2010. At the end of 2012, I left Portland to work independently and ran my busy private practice in London until we moved back to South Africa in December 2017. I now practice in La Lucia, Durban.
I am passionate about my job and feel incredibly privileged to be able to help women and children every day. My Physiotherapy approach is quite ‘holistic’, and I draw quite extensively on my yoga knowledge as an adjunct to my Physio treatments. I am also a firm believer in positive thinking and many patients leave my clinic with a positive affirmation so spend some time thinking about each day.
My dream is to help to create a society where women are educated about the part of their anatomy that truly makes them women. For the one in three women that we know are urinary incontinent, the one in 8 women who struggle with faecal incontinence and the one in two women who have some degree of vaginal prolapse, to be brave enough to seek help for these
conditions, and to empower them to prevent these worsening in the future. I aim to provide a relaxed and safe environment to discuss any pelvic floor, bladder, bowel or pelvic pain issues and to treat and guide ladies to be as proactive and educated about these areas as possible.

I graduated in 2009 from UKZN with my Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy and went on to do my community service at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital in Umlazi in 2010. I loved the challenge of a big hospital where I would be exposed to many different things.
I then started working in an outpatient practice in 2011 up in Kloof and by the end of that year we had opened up rooms in Hillcrest Private Hospital. Being a new hospital I was working in all areas but especially loved my time in the Paediatric and Maternity wards.
