About Niki

Hi, I’m Niki and I work as a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist. I am passionate about this area and particularly enjoy supporting clients back to the activities and fitness levels they love. I am a mum to two lively and energetic children, who certainly like to keep me busy!

 

In my spare time I love to be active outdoors which fortunately is shared by the rest of my family. I have recently set up a local women’s health support hub with other health professionals. Our aim is to provide free education and create a safe place to ask questions to help provide pelvic health information.
