About your therapist

Having worked with horses since 1984, in a variety of stables including hunting and eventing, I discovered the value of sport injury therapy while working as a stable manager at a large competition centre in Pennsylvania, USA. This inspired me to return to the UK and attain a diploma in Remedial and Sports Massage in Nottingham.

With this qualification, along with many years of equine experience, I was accepted onto the first ever Equine Sports Massage course available in the UK. This was, and still is, run by the renowned ACPAT therapist and physio legend, Mary Bromily, then in Lambourn, Berkshire, and now in Minehead, Somerset. On achieving this premier and prestigious diploma in 1995, I was instrumental in setting up the Equine Sports Massage Association, in order to promote and protect the standards of equine sports massage. I was also an examiner for the practical section of Mary's course for many years, alongside Belinda Cullen.

Since 1995 I have worked hard to build a successful business, as well as attending many training days and associated courses, and worked with some of the country's leading therapists. I have been privileged to work on top class equine athletes, including racehorses, eventers and show horses.

Having been involved in competing my own Belgian Shepherd dogs in dog agility competitions all over the country, it seemed a natural progression to introduce my techniques to the dog world. I studied canine massage with the Institute of Complimentary Animal Therapies in Devon in 2002. My clients include canine athletes in the world of agility, working trials, racing and flyball, including veterinary referrals and providing comfort to older dogs.

My business is based in the Vale of Belvoir from where I cover most of the East Midlands.
