I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist (MCSP) in 1982, and have worked extensively in the specialised area of musculoskeletal rehabilitation. 

My knowledge has been enhanced by training in Body Control Pilates (MBCPA) qualifying in 2001, and regular attendance at professional development workshops, courses and conferences. These training opportunities enhance  my understanding and ability to teach Pilates. I have personally benefited from Pilates, and confidently recommend this form of exercise to help to re-balance your body, and to facilitate a feeling of wellbeing.

I am a Relaxation, Meditation and Mindful coach with the SMART Foundation. I have also trained in Swedish massage and facials.

The Body Control Pilates Association is a professional body for Pilates Teachers. The teacher training course is extensive, and members must attend regular courses to maintain membership standards. The Association has a Code of Practice which governs teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing education.
