Welcome to my Web page

Here is a short resume about my Professional background and work experience

My experience as a Lymphoedema/Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapist started more than 10 years ago

As a therapist almost 20 years ago

The first working experience started as a literature teacher 30 years ago before arriving to UK in 2000.

Working with people always has been my love, passion and skill embroidered in my personality

Combining my love in working with people with my great curiosity for body work, science, health, well being and synthesising those passions trough holistic approach I believe I find my ‘perfect profession – being Therapist’

Therapy career I started at first as a Complementary therapist years ago when I did my first training in Anatomy and Physiology, Body massage, Reflexology, On-Site massage and Indian head massage
I started my practice as a free lance mobile therapist. After couple of years of experience as a Complementary therapist I wanted to bring my knowledge on higher professional level therefore I started Physiotherapy studies at Southbank University.
After 2 years of studying I started working in large NHS South West London Trust, in St Georges Hospital. I was very lucky to work beside Physio and Occupational Therapist on Orthopaedic Major Trauma centre. This is where I started building my medical background and experience learning from excellent medical and therapy practitioners

The next challenge in my career started when working in St George’s Hospital I discovered and become passionately interested in Lymphoedema management and Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatments.
Therefore I started My Lymphoedema training and I have chosen to finish Original Dr. Vodder method of manual lymph drainage (MLD) and combined decongestive therapy (CDT) with the highest standard of education in the UK
The first qualification related to Lymphoedema and MLD I have completed with Dr Vodder’s Austrian International School of Lymphoedema
This is one of the most respected and original Dr Vodder school and method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and combined decongestive therapy (CDT) widely used around the world. Dr Vodder is using advanced and specialised method and technique for MLD and lymphoedema management.
My further lymphoedema education continued by attending brilliant course for Advanced lymphoedema management on Lymphoedema Training Academy based up north in England. The course title is Fluoroscopy guided Manual Lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD), where I not only advanced my MLD technique but also improved general effectiveness of their treatment. This was achieved with brilliants tuition and sharing their knowledge and latest updates on new findings and researches in Lymphoedema. Completion of this course did provide me much better understanding of lymphatic principles and has been showing great improvement in post-treatment results within variety of clients

In a mean time I worked as a MLD bank Therapist in Royal Marsden Hospital Private MLD Clinic working with with lymphoedema patient related to cancer pathologies and it’s treatment.
For a short period I have been also member of a HCA lymphoedema service on bank bases too.
Currently I'm employed as a Lymphoedema Therapist in Princess Alice Hospice as a Palliative care lymphoedema therapist since 2014
Beside my active work in health clinics I have been Self-Employed Lymphoedema and Body therapist working on private bases.
This involves running case load of my own private clients who have need for Lymphoedema or MLD Treatments or other Complementary and Body Therapies for more than 10 years. I work as a mobile therapist with an option to see them in 58 South Molton street clinic based in central London

I'm member of MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) UK and BLS (British Lymphology Society) UK
