About Me

I've been teaching in the health/fitness industry for 20 years, working with a wide variety of clients.

What Can I Do For You?


*Online training available!  Keep an eye out on the website for updates*

I have experience working with all kinds of clients, from those with chronic back pain to those who want to tone up and lose weight.

You can have just a few sessions to get you started or back on track, or book a longer series of sessions if you have something more specific you'd like to work on.

There's more detailed info about packages, pricing, etc. on the website.  Do get in touch with your own specific requirements as I often put together bespoke packages for clients.  I also now offer sports/therapeutic massage and Reiki treatments which are great for both standalone treatments and as part of a package to help enhance your exercise programme.

Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or would like to book a phone/in person consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you!

"I'm now well into my sixties and like to keep fit by running, but suffer periodically from lower back, knee and toe issues that stop me from exercising.  Seeing Anna and David in our neighbourhood pacing the streets bare foot and knowing of their pioneering practice in movement therapy and Anna's specialism in running, I turned to Anna for help and we have worked together for 6 months now.  Anna was in the process of qualifying as a sport's masseur, so she combined massage of slight injuries with maintenance exercises to keep alive my running and fitness ambition (a constant battle as I get older).  Anna's great experience with running and runners' bodies coupled with massage treatments was just what I needed.  I was immediately impressed with her professional approach, which combined asking questions together with close observation of my movements, followed by an assessment of muscle condition and a comparison of both sides of my body.  Her therapeutic method seemed to me both logical and intuitive, so with careful examination and detailed questioning she builds a picture to help explain what she is feeling and discovering through her massage techniques.  She instinctively finds where the tight and knotted problem muscles are.  In all my experience of sports masseurs - I've probably had half a dozen to compare - Anna's is easily the best, the effect on the body is honestly transformative.  After a session, I always feel bouncier and more lithe again with previous niggles reduced to a minimum.  Usually I'm in shape for a run home - it's that good.  Anna's natural affinity with the techniques of sports massage perfectly complements her practice as a movement instructor, and her massage treatments have a made a huge difference."  J, aged 63, Sydenham

"Working with Anna is a real pleasure.  She is extremely supportive and incredibly generous with her time.  She increases the difficulty of the programme at a pace that achieves significant progress on a consistent basis, almost without you realising it.  I really feel we are a team with a common goal".  S, aged 62, Mottingham

"I recently saw Anna for sports massage for help with long term lower back problems and found the experience very professional.  The initial assessment was really thorough and Anna spent the time to get a real understanding of my needs.  During the massage itself, Anna showed an extensive knowledge of anatomy and she has a great way of explaining this in a very understandable way.  I can see significant improvement in my back and have been able to start regular exercise as I have more confidence in my back now.  I would highly recommend Anna to anyone".  M, aged 39, Beckenham

"I have had a course of Reiki treatments with Anna both in person and virtually (during lockdown) and they have had a transformative effect on me. Anna is such a kind, intuitive and knowledgeable practitioner.  I feel totally safe being guided through the process with her and sharing my experiences after.  I feel like working with Anna has helped give me the space and guidance I needed to work through some deep shifts in my life and I would 100% recommend her".  A, aged 33, Forest Hill

"I would definitely recommend Anna as a personal trainer!  Her knowledge about the body and different types of exercise is impressive, and her highly tailored and very personable approach is excellent.  I initially contacted Anna after a leg injury prevented me from running or doing any impact exercise - I missed keeping fit and didn't have the first clue about what else I could be doing.  The set of exercises that Anna has devised for me over the course of 10 sessions ticks all the boxes and more - the mixture of exercises and techniques has kept me interested, motivated and the routine is realistic enough for me to fit into my (fairly busy) life".  A, aged 29, Brixton

"I have trained with Anna for over a year now and it's the first time I have actually enjoyed exercise, having joined and left several gyms in the past!  I wanted to train to improve my overall fitness and body tone and Anna has created some great programmes for me, including yoga, weights and core strength, which have gradually increased my fitness and virtually eradicated aches and pains from old recurring injuries.  I feel the difference in my posture, body shape and overall confidence and it's all due to her encouragement.  Personal training with Anna has been money well spent and I would highly recommend her as a teacher.  I have gone from being a bit of a couch potato to someone who craves exercise and it's all because of her!"  S, aged 39, Crystal Palace

"When I first started working with Anna with distance Reiki, I was an open minded sceptic.  Not really sure if it could make any difference to me, but after six weeks of sessions with Anna I am now totally convinced that it's helped!  I've learnt how to relax both my body and mind have have found that it's helped to improve my self confidence and to fully relax the deep tension hidden in one of my hamstrings.  Anna is a very calm and grounded person who comes across as professional and helpful".  M, aged 46, Orpington

"My New Year's resolution was to get fit and healthy and lose the last of the weight gained in my pregnancies.  This had been a challenge previously because several injuries meant that certain exercises and group classes didn't work for me.  When I first started working with Anna, I was shocked by how poor my balance and stability were.  Anna showed me how to improve those basics really quickly so that I could do regular exercise that suited my body.  The results were rapid and significant.  I have lost 8kgs and really toned up and incredibly, I've really enjoyed it.  It feels great to know how to take care of myself now and to have a flexible routine that I can fit in to my busy work/family life.  I never would have achieved this without Anna's insightful and encouraging guidance and expertise."  N, aged 37, Herne Hill

"I have been having massages regularly now for a few months from Anna.  I have more or less a full body massage with Anna concentrating on the areas that need extra work.  I am a fulltime carer for my husband who is completely immobile so I have to lift him into position every few hours.  I often strain my shoulders and Anna 'irons out' the knots.  Because Anna comes to my house, I don't have to worry about going out, which is an added bonus.  I feel so much better after the massage - more relaxed - and the foot massage that Anna does at the end is great!  I would have no hesitation in recommending Anna as a masseuse."  A, aged 67, West Wickham

"I wanted to say thank you for making it so enjoyable over the last few months - feeling really empowered which is all thanks to having such a great teacher."  T, aged 27, Catford

"Anna helped me lose 3 stone and keep it off for years.  Her exercise programmes have challenged increasingly as my fitness and flexibility have improved, rolling back the years.  I've even completed three 5km charity runs, something I never thought I'd do again.  Her genuinely personal training and support has been far more cost-effective (and inspiring) than the money I spent being scorned by lycra-clad superior beings in all the gyms I tried before.  No push-over though!"  J, aged 55, Anerley

"I have degenerative disc disease and limited mobility.  Anna has worked closely with me for 10 months to develop exercise routines to increase my core stability and to mobilze and strengthen muscles which have been dormant for some time.  As a result I feel much stronger and have become very aware of posture for the first time.  Anna treats me holistically by ensuring she knows about my day to day life and monitors my levels of pain closely, changing exercises accordingly; she also offers help with pain management by giving me relaxation exercises.  Anna is very sympathetic to clients in pain and gentle in her approach, important for chronic pain sufferers who often feel vulnerable.  Regular contact with Anna is very important to me, her input helps me to remain positive and focused, I feel she genuinely invests in my progress.  Most importantly exercising gives me the sense that I am helping myself, that my recovery is in my own hands."  C, aged 38, Docklands

"I approached Anna for some personal training as I was looking for someone to ease me back into a fitness regime and someone who took a holistic approach to health and well-being.  And I had a fantastic 6 sessions!  Anna was supportive, encouraging and built a routine that allowed my body to get back into working out, without doing any damage!  I felt great after each session and she increased the intensity each time as my body began to get used to its new regime.  I wholly recommend the programme and think Anna is a great trainer."  A, aged 38, Camberwell

"I really look forward to my Friday morning sessions with Anna and if I hadn't moved house I would have definitely kept them up.  I am middle-aged and needed to tackle my lack of exercise and excess weight.  I believe Anna's style to be holistic; she puts together interesting and varied programmes.  She encouraged me to jog, something I was sure I would never do, but who would have thought it: after a few weeks I was really enjoying it!  As the months passed I felt stronger and generally much more healthy, which is just what I had hoped for.  Anna is a very professional and gifted trainer, I would highly recommend her."  G, aged 50, Croydon

"Very good news!  Thanks to you I returned a short while ago from a week long meditation retreat and had not one smidgeon of sciatica the whole time.  Also, running is going well - doing small amounts on pavement plus all the exercises in the book, so far with very little problem.  And my back is feeling looser/better thanks to the back exercises."  E, aged 52, York
