Throughout my career I have enjoyed helping people to rehabilitate a broad range of conditions whether they want to walk without pain or compete in an Ironman triathlon. My career started at West Middlesex Hospital learning the fundamentals of treating a broad range of conditions and injuries. It was during this time that I started working in private practice at St Mary’s University treating elite athletes. I have also worked for Fulham Football Club Academy looking after the junior teams during matches and overseas tours.
I then moved into private practice in Kensington and started my Master’s in Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation at University of Hertfordshire. I also cover events held for a variety of GB sporting teams liaising with numerous healthcare professionals and having to have knowledge of numerous sports.
Whilst studying for my Master’s I had to reduce the number of hours seeing patients and I really missed this so I started part-time in private practice in and around the Hampton area. Having completed my formal studies I’ve also been studying plant-based culinary sports nutrition and I have joined the Physio & Therapy team in Teddington.
I enjoy taking part in a range of sports from Three Day Eventing to Ironman triathlons so I am also used to injuries. I bring these experiences into my practice as I have an understanding of having conditions from a disc prolapse to a number of fractures. With my friendly, functional goal-based approach I use my drive and determination to find which combination of physiotherapy modalities and skills most fit your condition and are most suitable for you. This may be acupuncture, soft tissue therapy, manual therapy, pilates, strength and conditioning and/or nutritional and lifestyle advice. Helping you to understand the diagnosis and treatment is also key to my practice. This will help us to work as a team to formulate realistic goals, set timelines, plan treatment and get you back on the road to recovery. I’m always honest and want my clients to feel at ease about approaching me with any question and I will always do my best to help and resolve it.
