'Francesca is a wonderful Pilates/Physio therapist. She uses a combination of these skills to unravel all the stiffness that comes from me sitting at a desk all day – I’m a typical office-based person! I have benefitted enormously from doing all the exercises under her expert and careful tuition and I do feel my body is more resilient to any niggles that crop up from time to time. I thoroughly enjoy our sessions together – she’s patient (even with my choice of music) and adapts the exercises to get the best performance from my body even on a “slow” day.'
Tehseen, Seer Green



I believe in treating the whole body rather than treating an injury or medical issue in isolation. Your goals with be at the centre of your treatment to ensure the best possible outcome.
Francesca is a Chartered Physiotherapist, registered with the HCPC and a member of the CSP.



The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy-

'Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a 'whole person' approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient's general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient's involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long term medical conditions and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.'

Occupational injury


'I was recommended to Francesca after struggling with my rehab after a right hip-resurface operation. Thanks to Francesca I am now pain free in my right hip and have far more mobility in my left which also requires surgery. From the beginning I had complete confidence in Francesca’s diagnosis, treatment, and advice. I will have no hesitation in placing my trust in Francesca for my rehab when I eventually have my operation on my left hip.  My surgeon also highly appreciates the regular reports on my progress that Francesca sends to him. Furthermore, as a 64-year-old man, who likes to keep active but like many of us older guys who do not always act our age, I also suffer from other aches and strains. I find that Francesca can always quickly identify the root cause of any problem, fix it, and speeds up my recovery by providing a program of exercises that are also designed to prevent the injury from reoccurring. She is also exceedingly kind, understanding, extremely professional and has a great sense of humour! I would not hesitate to recommend Francesca for any post orthopaedic operation rehabilitation as well as any long-term aches and niggles that trouble you.'  
Paul A. Cookham



Francesca qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from the University of Birmingham in 2009. Since then she has gained a wealth of experience working in the NHS, a charity and for the past seven years a busy private clinic in Marylebone. Her varied experience gives her a holistic view on treating a wide variety of conditions and patient groups. She adopts a biomechanical assessment approach to identify the root cause of injury. She believes in hands on techniques to reduce pain in the acute stage, together with a strong emphasis on treating the underlying cause with preventative exercises so that outcomes are maintained in the long term, helping people to achieve their full potential.

Francesca treats conditions from work related issues, to traumatic injuries or post operative rehabilitation. She also specialises in pre and post natal. She combines clinical pilates with her physio treatment to achieve the best possible outcome, as it is a fantastic compliment to physio in rehabilitating injury as well as injury prevention. Pilates can benefit everyone from people with pain or injury, to elite athletes to new mothers. She aims for everyone to take something away from her sessions transferring new skills and body awareness into everyday life and functional activities. 


'Francesca is a fantastic physio. I was recommended to contact her through a friend as I was seeing another physio but wasn't happy with the treatment I was receiving. One of the most attractive points of Francesca's work is that she does your appointments from the comfort of your own home, where you can be totally relaxed and comfortable. Francesca is so knowledgeable and personable and makes you feel completely at ease. I was able to see drastic improvements throughout my course of treatments and will continue to work with Francesca to keep on top of my aches and pains. If you're looking for a friendly, experienced physio who will guide you through your treatment at your own pace, Francesca is the one for you.'
