A Bit About Mandy

Mandy qualified from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa in 2008. She worked in South Africa in private practice Physiotherapy until 2021 when she moved to Australia with her family. 

 

Mandy has a keen special interest in Pelvic Health Physiotherapy and has received additional training in Female, Male and Children’s Pelvic Health. She is passionate about helping Women and Men with persistant pelvic pain conditions and helping them thrive in life. 

Mandy calls herself a "Curious Clinician" and is constantly taking courses to further her professional development. She is always asking WHY, This allows her to find the root cause of a problem (why is is this pain happening, why is urine leaking, why am I struggling to empty my bowels) rather than just doing symptomatic treatment where patients have to come back constantly for symptom relief.

 

Mandy splits her time between being a mum, seeing patients clinically, and teaching courses to other Physiotherapists. Her flagship course: Women’s Pelvic Health: Foundations and Fundamentals, a course that teaches Physiotherapists how to perform safe and trauma-informed internal vaginal examinations, was launched last year. She has since trained over one hundred Australian physiotherapists in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Her self-paced online courses have been taken by over a thousand health professionals around the world.
