I began my career in private practice at Greenacres (Port Elizabeth) and has been a private practice owner since 1998, with my current practice in Melkbosstrand. From the outset it has been my philosophy not to treat an injury in isolation; but work with the patient holistically. In keeping with this philosophy I opened a movement studio to complement to the practice in 2002.
By attending numerous courses and lectures over the years, I have further developed this principle in my core interests of orthopaedic and sports rehabilitation and chronic pain issues. This has evolved in a multi-faceted approach to movement therapy as treatment modality, mindfulness and lifestyle changes as rehabilitation tools.
I am also committed to sharing my methods, and has on and off for several years been involved with part-time lecturing at the University of Stellenbosch Physiotherapy department. In 2004 I established Healthy Living Education, with its focus on providing educational courses and workshops in movement related therapies for medical professionals and movement therapists. I resigned as director from HLE in 2016 to spend more time on training efforts at the practice. I believes that ongoing education and growth is key to being a successful therapist. I see my true calling to empower therapists working with me by sharing my knowledge and experience.
I am committed to give back to my profession and community and is currently the Western Province’s Physiofocus representative. The practice is involved in various community projects.
My goal is to empower and move people to better health and wellbeing
