My areas of interest lie in preventative medicine (prehab), spine- related injury/pain and running-related injuries (special focus on biomechanics, forces and loading during running). This by no means will exclude any injury/ condition that can benefit from physical rehabilitation.

My sporting, academic and clinical experience informs my rehabilitation approach ( > 10 yrs).

In a clinical setting, my rehabilitation plan is determined by a collection of both objective and subjective information in the initial assessment (ViMove wearable technology is used for running analysis).

My approach is that "no injury/ pain syndrome is insignificant or too complicated. If there is a problem linked to your musculoskeletal system, there has to be a solution. It may just mean moving away from the usual approach and looking at it from a different angle"

At Beauty Within, we don’t believe in “standards of beauty” and media-driven ideas of what beauty should look like. Instead, we understand that true beauty lies within the uniqueness of each of us; that we all radiate from within; that perfection, like ideals and standards, are subjective. This philosophy forms the heart of everything we do and is the reason why we don’t subscribe to a one-size-fits-all treatment policy. Rather, we tailor our range of beauty, health and wellness treatments to each client, helping enhance their individual sparkle and magnificence.

Have you noticed that life doesn't always go according to plan?

Sometimes it can be the big things that get us down- the breakdown of a relationship, losing a loved one, the loss of a job or someone you love falling sick.
Or sometimes the things we desperately want in our life - that great partner, children, that amazing job - don't come to us in the way we'd hoped they would.
Other times we might experience depression or anxiety, and we might try to fix them by cutting off from the things that we value, thereby making us even more sad or worried. And many times we humans just get stuck- we lack motivation or purpose... we're low on confidence..we live on auto pilot and feel that life isn't as vital or as meaningful as we imagine it could be.

Asking for help doesn't come naturally for many of us. But speaking to a psychologist can assist you to see things from a different perspective. Therapy can be a helpful and supportive factor while you take steps towards living a life that really matters to you.

I am a Registered Dietitian with a passion for healthy eating and lifestyle. I have a BSC Medical Honours Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from The University Of Cape Town, and completed my undergraduate degree majoring in Human Kinetics & Ergonomics (HKE) and Psychology at Rhodes University. I also have a Diploma in Sports Nutrition through The International Olympic Committee. My primary interests are in general healthy eating, sports nutrition, disordered eating and DNA nutrition.

Sports Nutrition
My Undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics stimulated my interest in sports nutrition and the importance of nutrition for exercise and performance. After finishing my dietetics degree I completed the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Diploma in Sports Nutrition to specialise in the sports nutrition field. I am passionate about exercise and fitness and practice what I preach with regards to training and nutrition. I am a qualified spinning and kettlebel instructor and have completed a short course on exercise prescription in chronic diseases and special populations through Witwatersrand University.

Disordered Eating
I see food as nourishing and something that should be enjoyed not feared. I don’t see ‘healthy’ as being low calorie, but being the most nutritious option. I follow the intuitive eating principles and give focus to foods that make us feel good and that are enjoyed. I followed up my interest in eating disorders by doing further short courses on emotional eating, binge eating & bulimia nervosa.

DNA Nutrition
There is nothing more personalised than your specific genetic make up. There are now tests available where we can look at your specific DNA to predict your risk of developing chronic diseases. We can then advise on specific lifestyle and dietary interventions to help to reduce your risk of developing these diseases. I am currently enrolled in the Manuka course in Nutrigenomics.
