I have suffered from a form of arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, since childhood. I always worked hard to stay fit and active, but it was the discovery of first Pilates and then Somatics which really changed my life and how well I could move.

After using a walking stick for 20 years, I rebuilt my body from the inside out so that I could give up using a stick and I love to share how I did this.

I am a fully certified Essential Somatics Movement Coach and Teacher and have also done some Pilates training, including with the wonderful Oov.

I specialise in classes and one to ones with fellow sufferers with Ankylosing Spondylitis but am happy to help anyone who is finding their movement a struggle or simply wants to connect more with their body to understand how to feel and move better.

I have helped people with SI joint pain, sciatica, Parkinsons, chronic pain conditions, neck and shoulders issues and lower back pain.

I also work as a gut health mentor, helping people to rebalance their gut bacteria to reduce immune problems and improve their overall health.
