Laura Barrett

Physiotherapist

Laura began her career in women’s health physiotherapy in 2004 after graduating with a first-class honours degree in physiotherapy from King’s College, London. Having initially gained valuable experience working in a large hospital in London, Laura entered the private health sector in 2008 and continued to expand upon her passion for supporting women in pregnancy and beyond by working with several internationally recognised, specialist women’s health physiotherapists. 

From 2010 to 2017, Laura held multiple roles at polyclinics in Dubai, including Head of Women’s Health Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates, where Laura was instrumental in developing the treatment, management and support for the patients in her care and establishing a culture of support in the region for a sometimes neglected population.

Upon returning to the UK, Laura founded a successful Women’s Health Physiotherapy and Pilates business in Surrey and Oxfordshire before deciding to return to Dubai in 2021 with her husband and two young sons.

Having always practised within women’s health physiotherapy, Laura gained additional certification as a Mummy MOT® Practitioner and continues to ensure that pre-natal women are fit and healthy when entering this exciting new phase and that post-natal women are supported in their recovery from pregnancy, through childbirth and into ‘mummy hood’, returning to work and exercise and having the confidence and ability to pursue previous or new hobbies.

Laura is clinically trained to provide specialised assessments, informative advice and effective treatment. Areas of expertise are:

  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation in the management of incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Treatment of pelvic girdle pain in the pregnant population
  • Effective post-natal management following caesarean section and vaginal delivery
  • The resolution of Diastasis Recti (tummy separation)

Laura has also trained with the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute since 2006 Laura has gained expertise in the clinical application of Pilates, providing individualised, symptom-specific patient programmes. Laura believes that clinical Pilates can benefit every patient resulting in a stronger core and better posture, thus helping in injury prevention and successful recovery.
