Samah strives to create a safe space for all of her clients to be heard and the concerns and opinions valued.
In 2017 while listening to a university lecture about pelvic pain, Samah had an ah-ha moment – pelvic floor physiotherapy was (and still is) her calling. Samah was fortunate enough to land a placement at Fairfield Hospital where she worked on the maternity wards, seeing women with varying degrees of perineal tearing, abdominal separation and those with a high risk of pelvic floor dysfunction postpartum. She was also involved in the assessment and treatment of outpatients with prolapse, urinary and bowel disorders. Since then, she’s worked in private practice, treating people with various musculoskeletal dysfunctions, including those related to pregnancy and the postnatal period. Samah has more recently been working with more complex pain conditions including sexual pain and endometriosis. Samah has been practicing Women’s Health for the last three years, under the guidance of leading women’s health physiotherapists including Aline Filpe, Tusanee Jierasak, Zoe Wallace, Ruth Schubert and Heba Shaheed. Samah has a special interest in treatment of pelvic pain, and management of pregnancy related conditions, working closely with Obstetricians, Gynaecologists and GP’s including Dr Andreadis, Dr Valmadre and Dr Gemma Blain.
