I originally qualified as a personal trainer and sports therapist 10 years ago and then trained as a physiotherapist at St George's Hospital, Tooting in 2006. My areas of interest include general musculoskeletal physiotherapy, sports injuries and rehabilitation focusing on a "hands on approach" to posture, muscle imbalance and exercise prescription.
I use a combination of manual techniques, functional exercises and education in my rehabilitation treatments to give a holistic experience for my clients. To maintain my skills and progress my professional development I attend seminars, courses and workshops.
I am a Chartered Physiotherapist and HPC registered.
Outside of work I swim for Guildford City Masters and belong to Phoenix Triathlon Club and Guidlford and Godalming Athletics Club. In swimming I have competed regionally and nationally. I regularly compete in triathlon events in the UK and abroad and have recently qualified for the 70.3 World Championships in September 2012.
In 2001 I completed the 16th Marathon des Sables, described as "the worlds toughest foot race" on behalf of the Make A Wish Foundation.
By appreciating the physical demands the body has to endure throughout the training and race season, I understand the importance of physiotherapy to help restore full function but also to prevent injury.
