Courtney Essex

Senior Women's Health Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor

Courtney Essex

I have been working as a physio since 2019 after graduating from the University of Melbourne in Australia. Since then, I have been working across various physio clinics in both Australia and the UK. Over this time I have developed skills in treating a variety of conditions, including women’s health conditions, musculoskeletal, and sports injuries. I work at Katie Bell in the WomanKind team, to further assist and support women with their pelvic health.

I love using Pilates and exercise as a way to rehabilitate injuries, but also to promote healthy bodies and minds. I like to bring a sense of fun and positive energy to all my sessions, so be prepared for a laugh.

Qualifications, Achievements, and Relevant Experience:

– Bachelor of Science, University of Melbourne, 2015
– Doctor of Physiotherapy, University of Melbourne, 2018
– Certified Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute Instructor, 2019
– Australian Physiotherapy Association, Level 1 Women’s Health Physio Qualification, 2022

Hobbies, Hidden Talents, and More:

I love pretty much all things exercise! I find myself drawn to running, netball and snow skiing mostly, but can easily be swayed into trying any new activity or gym at least once.
When I’m not moving around, I like to spend my time experimenting in the kitchen cooking something new or baking.

I saw Emily for quite a few months after the birth of my baby and she was amazing. I honestly couldn't have been better looked after by her. She was so reassuring and gave me a plan for getting rehab and getting back into fitness. Emily is also so lovely to deal with and I really enjoyed our sessions. She is really knowledgeable and you just know you are in safe hands. I used to have regular massages with Hannah and James who were both excellent. I only stopped because we moved out the area. The Diamond package for monthly massages is well worth it. I also went to the baby and me Pilates course, which was really well led with great corrections.

I’ve had 3 sports massages over past few months with James and I’ve been really pleased with the service each time. The practice is clean and calming and all the staff are lovely. Would recommend to anyone!

Excellent service, had a strain in my back and they made me an appointment the same day. All staff were great, the consultation and sports massage was so beneficial and really helped, good tips and advice as well. Well worth it and would recommend to everyone.
