Welcome to ExPhysEm

overall quality of life.

(Adults & Paediatrics 12yrs+)
Servicing the United Kingdom, Southern Ireland, & Australia

Do you find that your symptoms feel very up and down and that they can be unpredictable from day to day? This is what we call the "Boom-Bust" cycle. At ExPhysEm, I work with patients to stabilise this pattern using practical and tailored management strategies so that individuals can sustainably re-introduce activity into their lives, without feeling worse.

  • Return to work?
  • Get back to studying?
  • Manage your health around existing work/study?

  • Manage your brain fog?
  • Be able to get out of bed?
  • Increase your physical & cognitive capacity?
  • Spend more time with friends & family?
  • Travel?
  • Go on a holiday?
  • Be able to better understand & predict your symptoms?

What Is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist?

I'm a Clinical Exercise Physiologist (CEP) but don't be fooled by the name, although I'm specialised in exercise prescription, my treatment focus is on education and energy management to stabilise and improve patient symptoms, promote independence, predictability, and overall quality of life.

CEP's are University trained practitioners with a minimum of an Undergraduate and Master's Degree in rehabilitation. Traditionally CEP's are trained to assess patients with chronic health conditions and musculoskeletal injuries in order to create tailored management strategies for improving their health and/or injury.

Conditions That I Treat

As someone living with dysautonomia and fatigue myself, I went down a unique pathway of specialisation and ongoing development to treat using education via a patient led approach. With personal experience, years of tertiary education, and specialist training in both Australia and the UK, I have been able to develop a bespoke program to help those living with invisible illness.

The most common conditions that I see in my practice are:

  • Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome/ Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS/PoTS)
  • Orthostatic Intolerance (OI)
  • Dysautonomia
  • Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (hEDS)
  • Autism
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME)
  • Post viral fatigue
  • Long COVID/ Post-acute Sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Persistent Pain
  • Central Sensitisation

The ExPhysEm Pledge:

1% of the cost of every ExPhysEm initial consultation goes toward raising awareness and support for those living with chronic challenges. Every patient has the opportunity to choose one of five non-profit charities they would like their consultation to support. To find out more about this, jump across to the sessions and pricing page.

A Word From the People...

"As a parent of an 18 year old newly diagnosed with ME/CFS and POTS, meeting Emily was like finding an "educated angel" in the whirlwind of unknowns and misinformation."

Michelle, NSW Australia

"Em GETS it. As a chronic illness sufferer herself she has already walked the path that she is guiding us on. There is no having to waste precious energy and spoons explaining everything to her"

Deneice, England

"I understand my illness so much more now after meeting and working with Em that I feel I can try things and live more sustainably with my illness. This change in perspective and toward living is a gift."

Ali, VIC Australia

"I think the overall lesson Emily has taught me is that living with a chronic illness can be more about the living than the chronic illness. I'm now able to focus on life and it feels full of possibilities again. ❤️"

Kate, England

"I wish I had found Emily sooner after my POTS diagnosis as there are a lot of strategies that I could have employed earlier and could have managed setbacks like COVID much better."

Lisa, Southern Ireland

"Sessions with Em improved my quality of life not just through physical therapy but also by giving me something to look forward to."

Beck, VIC Australia

"It can be really difficult to make sense of all of the advice and information circulating on these subjects, especially now in the post COVID era, so I have no hesitation in recommending Emily as an expert in her field, if you are seeking the best guidance for your recovery."

Chartered Physiotherapist, Southern Ireland

"I feel like my life is back on track again, I feel independent again, I am back on the right path and I know my worth."

Andy, England

"Emily comes highly recommended by us at 'With Pride' for any future clients, particularly those in our LGBTQIA+ Community."

Shae, With Pride, VIC Australia

"Emily has become my first point of call for any information, advice or strategies when working with clients with chronic fatigue syndrome and similarly complex conditions. Could not recommend her highly enough!"

Blake, VIC Australia
