Why has she created the advanced course for Fitness professionals?

” I found that I absolutely loved treating patients and watching them feel better but felt powerless when trying to improve their physical well-being outside the treatment room. This is where I decided to make it my mission to inspire individuals to improve their physical well-being in all aspects of life. This includes combining forces with some of the most enthusiastic and inspiring fitness professionals across the UK, teaching them about the most common conditions so that they are able to tailor their approach to each person and ensure the quickest and safest management and prognosis for their clients”
