I qualified from Brunel University in 1999 and moved to the West Midlands to complete my junior rotations. Fairly soon I decided to specialise in Neurological Physiotherapy and worked at a Stroke Team in Kent. Since then, I have worked, both as a locum within the NHS and in private healthcare, mostly in neurology, but also care of the elderly and more recently Sports Physiotherapy. During lockdown I worked in our local acute hospital in the Front Door team, which was very rewarding & quite a challenge! I have qualified to Advanced level in the Bobath concept and, over the years since qualifying, have carried out multiple courses within the field of neurology – including the Motor Relearning Programme for Stroke (Carr and Shepherd). I am also qualified, through the Australian Pilates and Physiotherapy Institute, to teach Pilates Matwork and use it frequently when treating my patients. Presently, I work as a locum in acute and community hospitals for the NHS and privately in the community visiting people in their home or care home. I love my job – every day is different – and I enjoy the challenges I face to enhance my patient’s quality of life through improving their movement.
Something about me
Over the years I have skydived, paraglided, skied, dived, and climbed. Nowadays I enjoy canicross with my German Shepherd-cross, road cycling and kayaking. I’m a big advocate of keeping fit and can’t go without regular visits to my gym!
