JULIE PILCHER

BSC(Hons) MCSP HCPC MAACP

Chartered Physiotherapist & Clinical Pilates Teacher


Julie graduated in Physiotherapy from Bournemouth University in 2010, and has since gained broad experience ranging from sports injury clinics in London to surf retreats in Indonesia and ski resorts in Switzerland.

She currently splits her time between Worthing in the summer, and winters in Switzerland where she skis every morning before treating patients. Julie strongly believes in a good work life balance, and that people should be able to enjoy what they love to do. This is reflected in her physiotherapy practice, where she is always keen to help people get back to their favourite sport, hobby or simply everyday life.

Julie first fell in love with Pilates when teaching surf focused Pilates sessions in the beautiful Indonesian island of Lombok. She then completed her APPI training and spent last summer teaching clinical Pilates here in Worthing. She has also completed an acupuncture course and enjoys using this in conjunction with other treatment modalities.

Julie grew up in Worthing and is excited to spend time in her hometown this summer. Having grown up as a competitive swimmer she loves to still keep her toes in the water, as well as keeping in shape with Pilates, running and skiing.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

I feel a lot fitter and more flexible than I did in January when I started at Sussex Pilates. Julie’s attentive and competent instruction has been much appreciated and her coaching approach is excellent. I have very much enjoyed the class and wish Julie all the best in her winter job.

I have started to feel the benefits of Pilates straight away. I have very much enjoyed my sessions with Julie - first with my 1:1, then in a group class - she is very helpful, professional, friendly and calm, always ready to help when you can’t quite ‘get’ an exercise.

Thank you Julie for being such a great coach and for having the patience and skill to put up with all my annoying quirks because of my hypermobility, especially making all the little adjustments required for my condition (I don’t know how you keep a straight face sometimes!). Above all, THANK YOU for getting me to stick with it on the shoulder exercises and succeeding where the NHS physios sadly failed - you have no idea what a luxury it is for one to be able to wash one’s own back again! I wish you all the very best in your Winter job and sincerely hope that we will see you again next year.

Just to say thank you to Julie for taking care of us all during the past few months. It is obvious that you are very knowledgable in your field and always there to correct someone if they are not doing it quite right.
You made the classes very enjoyable. Good luck in your winter career & maybe see you again next summer.

Julie has been a real breath of fresh air in the time she has been taking our class. Her whole persona is calm and focused on getting us doing things correctly. I think we will miss her but mustn’t take any praise away from Claire she is brill too. The whole team are so friendly and welcoming including Pippa the pup!

Julie is an excellent coach. Though based in a class, you feel as though you are being given individual attention and genuine care that you are able to do the exercises to your own ability.
A caring and very capable tutor.
Thank you!

Julie’s classes have been great, she has a great eye for spotting these necessary tweaks in posture that help get the most from the exercises. Many thanks.
