Hello, I’m Helen – a down-to-earth physiotherapist who is very passionate about helping people!
I’m a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist meaning I diagnose and treat problems around and inside the middle of you! I am very lucky to be able to say that I truly love my job and take pride in getting people back to the best versions of themselves again.
I have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating all joint, myofascial, nerve, ligament and muscular troubles, acute and chronic. Often when these problems manifest around the pelvis they can influence the function of the abdominal and pelvic organs too. For this, I am trained in visceral release and mobilisation. Often I will also use acupuncture/dry needling to aid the recovery process.
I ensure an individualised, holistic approach to every patient that I work with to aim for full resolution of the problem for good. I have been working within pelvic health since 2008 and as such, I have also built up close links to other specialist healthcare professionals with quick referrals or liason as necessary. This allows the most efficient recovery possible for you.
I am fully trained in the thoracic ring approach and the integrated systems model since 2013 (for more info: http://dianelee.ca/integrated-systems-model.php).
When I am not in clinic working with patients I am often away around the UK & Ireland providing post-graduate teaching and training to other physiotherapists who wish to learn about pelvic health. I have been a tutor for the POGP (specialist physiotherapy interest group for pelvic health) since 2015 (http://pogp.csp.org.uk). I also take great pride in the fact that I was chosen to be one of the official Olympic physiotherapists for the athletics team during London 2012 and I am one of Diane Lee’s assistants when she is teaching in the UK/Ireland (https://learnwithdianelee.com/about/)
