About Me

I have over 30 years experience in cancer related lymphoedema during which I have worked extensively with people who are worried about developing lymphoedema after treatment for cancer and with those who have developed swelling in a part of their body. I am keen to empower and motivate people to manage

their swelling in a way that is individual to them and that suits their lifestyle during all stages of their cancer journey. This may involve a number of approaches, all of which focus on control of this side effect of treatment for cancer.

I also offer support to those with non-cancer related oedema, during a virtual|20 appointment I can advise on how to best manage your condition, including appropriate skin care, exercises and limb positioning. If appropriate, we can proceed to in-depth sessions.
