I initially studied sport science at University because of my involvement and passion for sports, but due to my natural eagerness to help others I was encouraged to pursue a career as a Physio.
Since qualifying in 2004 I have been lucky enough to combine my work with my other passion in life, travelling. I’ve spent time working in Australia, New Zealand and China gaining experience in many different fields of Physiotherapy and working with some amazing Therapists. Along the way, I have developed into a Therapist whose focus is very much patient-led, so much so that I’ve frequently been pulled up on asking too many questions and not all Physio-related ones, but that just stems from a keen interest I have in people. I like to think my biggest attributes are in empathising, problem solving and inspiring change, but most importantly listening well to others which I feel is paramount to getting people better.
Alongside my Physio work I’ve also invested a lot of time using Clinical Pilates, both Mat-Work and equipment based, to either rehabilitate someone from injury or surgery, or to avoid problems arising and promote well-being. I’m passionate about Clinical Pilates after seeing so many people benefit so greatly from it. I especially love my job when I finish a session with someone and they leave feeling inspired.
I have now visited Jo at The Malmesbury Clinic for a multitude of ailments. She always gives superb care and a very friendly personal service with a high level of professionalism. She’s knowledgeable, helpful and honest about the pros and cons of various treatments. She will always go above and beyond with her treatments. I would warmly recommend her to anyone looking for a good physio. I have now also just started seeing her for one to one Pilate sessions which are fantastic and which I couldn’t recommend more. Because she understands the body from a physio perspective, it means you get a really bespoke session completely tailored to you and what your body will benefit the most from.
