Hi, I’m Niki, a Physiotherapist specialising in Women’s Health and a movement teacher.
I help women to learn more about their own bodies throughout their life to stay active and healthy. This is often during transitional time such as pregnancy and after birth and menopause, but it could be from age 18-80+. I have a particular interest in prevention of pelvic floor dysfunction through antenatal appointments, labour preparation and post-natal checks. When symptoms do occur, women I work with may report leaking of wee, heaviness in the vagina (possibly prolapse), abdominal separation, constipation, and lower back and/or pelvic pain.
I believe that education is key to preventing or reducing pelvic floor dysfunction. As a mother to two, I know lifestyle, home rehab and exercise advice has to be realistic to the busy lives that we have. I aim to keep up to date with current research, empowering my clients to feel confident to get back to what they love.

Diddi Dreamers - Holistic Baby Sleep Consultant
Hi I’m Emily, I have worked in the early years sector for the past 8 years & enjoy supporting families to make small changes which create big differences. I started my career as a Norland nanny where I worked with many wonderful families across the UK. It was during this time that I realised the need parents had for evidence based sleep advice. Many families are given a mix match of conflicting information from various health practitioners, family & friends leading them to feel lost & confused on how to best support their child.
In order extend my education received at Norland on baby’s sleep I trained with the world renowned Lyndsey Hookway in Holistic Sleep Coaching. The methods taught by Lyndsey are not only evidence based but also never involve leaving your child to cry unsupported. This means that you will be able to support your child throughout the entire process.
Whilst I am based in North Somerset many of my sleep clients work virtually with me & are based all across the UK. I also work directly with the Twins Trust charity supplying free gentle sleep guidance to families with multiples. Local to North Somerset I enjoys supporting families through educational workshops & events (keep an eye on my socials to find out where I’m holding these next).

THE SHE COLLECTIVE
I’m a PT, Mindset Coach and Mum to 3 noisy boys!
It may come as a surprise to hear that until the age of 30, I actually despised exercise! It just always felt like another thing to add to that already to do list. I would manage a week, maybe two at a push and then I would fall spectacularly off the health wagon.
Unfortunately it took hitting rock bottom to discover that exercise, was in fact, my saving grace.
When my twins were 18 months, Alfie, was diagnosed with a life limiting condition called SMA. The diagnosis hit my mental health hard and all I wanted to do was numb it all with medication. But I wanted more from my life, more for my boys, so I knew something had to change.
I created The SHE Collective - an online fitness membership designed for women who struggle for the time or motivation to exercise. I have worked tirelessly to create challenges and monthly membership that full of fun and connection, whilst also helping you stay on track (which is something many of us have previously struggled to do!)
