I’m a women’s health physiotherapist, with over 25 years of clinical experience – my passion is teaching clinicians and healthcare professionals how to help women live well. My professional toolbox includes movement therapies, manual treatment strategies to optimise function, nutrition, herbal medicine, mindfulness and a commitment to integrate the biopsychosocial approach

A firm believer in the power of social media to connect, I have a Facebook group exclusively for clinicians (Global Pelvic Physio), and along with Jenny Burrell, I’ve co-founded and co-curate The Power Years Project Community, a group for women who want to focus on living well.

I live in Ireland but I spend most of my time speaking at international conferences and post graduate courses.

I’m on the faculty of:

  • Herman & Wallace,
  • The Pelvic Rehab Institute,
  • the Integrative Women’s Health Institute,
  • Medbridge Education

and I’m a former tutor/clinical lead for the Pelvic Obstetric & Gynaecological Physiotherapy Association. I am also proud to be the clinical consultant for Burrell Education

I’ve presented at the following institutions:

  • International Continence Society,
  • the International Pelvic Pain Society,
  • the Pelvic Obstetric & Gynaecological Physiotherapy association,
  • the Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health and Continence,
  • Women in Women’s Health,
  • the British Pelvic Floor Society,
  • the Klose Lymphedema Conference,
  • the Turkish Pelvic Health Academy,
  • the Women’s Health Summit UK,
  • the International Herbal Symposium,
  • the New England Women’s Herbal Conference and the Wise Woman Weekend
  • and of course, my favourite, Woman on Fire!

I think you can’t move forward with health until you get the foundational aspects of self care in place – good nutrition, functional movement and restorative habits – but I’m also committed to Evidence Based Medicine, which is why you won’t see me recommending any particular approach without the research to back it up (#showmethescience! #evidencebasedkitchen)

I don’t know who said it, but I think a good clinician is a combination of physiology. physics and psychology – my job is to show the evidence and empower through education.
