About Me

Prior to training as a Physical Therapist Lily’s professional career included working for many years in the private and public sector. Lily’s transition into Physical Therapy and later into CranioSacral Therapy stemmed from her very successful athletic career including provincial, national and international titles in track and field events. With her sporting background as an athlete and with an interest in movement of the body and health in general this led her to studying Physical Therapy in 2001. In 2005 Lily graduated in Physical Therapy from the Institute of Physical Therapy and Applied Science. Graduates of this institute now hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Health Science awarded by HETAC. Since graduating as a Physical Therapist she became intrigued as to how the body responded to treatment and the natural healing capabilities that the body has. First hand experience of the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy following a back injury due to a horse riding incident and autoimmune illness led her to enter into this area of training. Immediately she became hooked on how powerful this seemingly gentle treatment could be. Not only in helping the body to recover from neuromuscular conditions but to recover and find its balance from a wide range of disorders also. Since 2005, Lily has completed her training as a Certified Craniosacral Therapist with the Upledger Institute both in Ireland and overseas. She is trained to the level of Craniosacral Therapy General and Paediatrics, Somato Emotional Release and also Craniosacral Therapy in the water. Continuing professional development and further education is now the norm for Lily. Her rural upbringing on a small family farm nurtured her connection with nature and horses in particular. She is presently exploring the relationship between horses and the physiological benefits that equine facilitated therapy has on the human body. Lily is a registered member of the Irish Association of Physical Therapists (IAPT). This association regulates the professional and ethical standards to its members in order to safeguard the highest standard of care to clients. She is also a certified member of the Irish Association of Craniosacral Therapists.
