I am a physiotherapist based in Westlake in the Southern Suburbs, Cape Town. I apply a holistic approach to treating patients by providing a thorough assessment and treatment in a relaxed and comfortable environment. In addition to treating your current symptoms I also spend time analysing the underlying muscle imbalances and biomechanical issues that may be the root cause. I provide a tailored rehab programme to each individual aiming to prevent recurrence of their problem.

About Us

Qualifications:
  • BSc (Phys) Degree at University of Cape Town (2000)
Professional Memberships:
  • Health Professions Council of South Africa
  • Health Professions Council of United Kingdom
  • South African Society of Physiotherapy

I was born and grew up in Cape Town where I worked for 6 months before moving to the UK for 10 years. I initially worked as a locum in different NHS hospitals for 2 years where I was very fortunate to have learnt from some excellent clinicians.

I then moved to the Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital in 2003 and worked there until I moved back to South Africa in September 2011. I developed my skills in musculoskeletal and orthopaedic specialities in close conjunction with local consultants and was appointed Clinical Lead Physiotherapist in 2009. I am an APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) trained pilates instructor.

Since moving back to Cape Town I have continued to gain experience in the musculoskeletal field and am excited to be moving my practice to new premises in Westlake where my treatment room will be based at Now Space West in Westlake Square and pilates classes will be run just across the way from the lovely Urban Wellness Studio at the Westlake Lifestyle Centre.

In addition to using modern acupuncture to reduce pain and muscle spasm via stimulating nerve endings , I am also qualified in the more holistic traditional Chinese approach. This form of acupuncture also takes into consideration your general well-being and restores normal balance to your body's energy.
