Lydia is a qualified podiatrist who obtained her Podiatry Bachelor Degree with an honours class in Australia. She has had the pleasure to obtain a diverse experience both in Australia and in the UK. 

Lydia specialises all things related to the foot and ankle, including foot pain, abnormal growths, injuries, diabetic foot issues, and nerve damage. She will diagnose and treat existing foot and ankle conditions, and address underlying health issues that may be causing your symptoms. 

Lydia will treat on foot problems in children to the management of foot problems in older people. Some of the issues podiatrists deal with include:

  • Painful irritations of the feet including corns, calluses & bunions
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Athletes foot
  • Veruccae
  • Mortons Neuroma
  • Arch trouble
  • Sports injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Circulation difficulties in the lower extremities often caused by diabetes. 

She started out working in a semi-rural part of Queensland that allow exposure to various socioeconomic backgrounds and all walks of life. Following her move to Australian Capital Territory, she was able to work in a biomechanical clinic mainly servicing the Australian Defence force and another practice that specialised in high-risk foot care and nail surgeries. During her time at the latter practice, she managed various patients including acute and high-risk diabetics, cerebral palsy patients and chemotherapy patients.

Subsequent to her move to London, she has had the opportunity to work with St George's Hospital, Central Middlesex Hospital, Ealing Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital. Presently, she works as a Band 7 Diabetes Specialist Podiatrist with the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. These diverse exposures have allowed Lydia to provide best evidence-based practice while holistically tailoring to the unique individual needs. 

Lydia wants to note that feet are truly an extraordinary part of the human body with the most complex mechanical structure and resilience that allows us to walk forces estimating a total of hundreds of tons. We need to take care of our feet to reach and enjoy every milestone throughout our life. As the eminent Leonardo Da Vinci quoted "The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and work of art."

Lydia is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC Registration no. CH35610).
