About Me

I started my professional practice as a sports massage therapist in 2001 and have continued to expand my knowledge base, studies and focus into male pelvic pain since 2009. Having suffered with acute and chronic pelvic pain (see here and here) I know much of what my patients go through. I offer a compassionate, empathetic, holistic and contemporaneous approach to the treatment of male pelvic pain.

What I Offer

I offer a completely bespoke and tailored recovery plan for each patient. I take time to understand each presenting case, building up a complete picture and creating a strong therapeutic alliance.

I use a BioPsychoSocial approach to the treatment of male pelvic pain, addressing physical attributes (muscle tightness, movement, nervous system sensitivity etc.), psychological associations (catatrophisation, hyper-vigilance, anxiety, fears etc.) and social aspects (relationships, sex, recreational activity, hobbies etc.). For more details watch here and here.

I forge a strong patient alliance to ensure I can provide the best possible outcomes for each patient. We work towards individually directed goals, objectives and targets. Managing a patient’s symptoms, bringing about symptom reduction and increasing self efficacy.

I provide each patient with the tools they need to overcome their pelvic pain. I teach patients to take control of their rehab. I facilitate patients to become the driver in their recovery, not just a passenger.
