I graduated from the University of South Australia in 1989 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy. I furthered my manual therapy education in North America before starting my own practice in Adelaide, South Australia in 1993 mostly treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries. By 1998, advanced manual therapy training in myofascial, visceral and cranial approaches allowed me to treat people with chronic dysfunctions of all systems within the body. Helping people with complex and chronic problems remains the primary focus of my practice today.
In 2000, I founded the teaching facility the Manual Therapy Institute to disseminate knowledge to other practitioners and I’ve been teaching these classes in Australia and Europe for over 15 years. In 2008, I began assisting teaching counterstrain technique with the Jones Institute and became a certified instructor in 2014. I currently teach the Jones Strain Counterstrain curriculum in Australia. Over the last decade Counterstrain has become the principle technique used in our practice and the journey of learning and applying Fascial Counterstrain is ongoing.
