GradDip (Cont & Women's Health)
Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Clorinda is an experienced Physiotherapist with a special interest in Women’s Health. Since graduating from the University of Sydney in 2007, she has wasted no time in pursuit of this passion with extensive additional specialty training, including a Post Graduate certification in Continence and Women’s Health. She is currently very close to completing her Masters in Continence and Women's Health through Curtin University, Perth.
Clinically Clorinda has worked within the maternity services at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Camperdown and the Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick, as well as at a number of well-respected private practices throughout Sydney.
Her open, supportive dialogue and passion for empowering women to facilitate their own healing journey combined with her knowledge in Women's Health allows Clorinda to treat very holistically.
On the weekends Clorinda can be found chasing her two wildlings around at the beach or local reserves or getting a cheeky decaf at her favourite cafés.
