Helen O'Leary

Physiotherapist | London

Helen is a Chartered Physiotherapist and Director of Complete Pilates – a physio led Pilates company based in London and online. Helen has worked in professional sport within London Wasps men’s rugby where she worked within a world class multidisciplinary team. This was where her love of Pilates was born and in 2010 completed her Polestar Pilates Comprehensive training. This is currently one of the only worldwide recognised qualification in Pilates and she used this as an adjunct to her treatment of acute injury and recovery. 


After spending three years in elite rugby, Helen quite literally packed up her bags and ran away to join the circus, accepting a position with Cirque Du Soleil. As one of only two Physiotherapists on the show, she taught Pilates as part of performer’s ongoing maintenance treatment, to prevent injuries and as part of active rehabilitation. Pilates helped the performers, from tumblers to contortionists, remain strong and healthy throughout a gruelling schedule of up to ten shows a week.


After returning to London in 2015, Helen set up Complete Pilates as a way of helping people be active immediately after injury, surgery or pregnancy.
