I am a qualified Physiotherapist with over a decade of experience in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy and a background in sports science, sports coaching, fitness and personal training. I am registered with the CSP, HCPC and ACPSEM. I originally gained a Sport Science degree from Bangor University in 2008, followed by a masters in physiotherapy from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2010.
After qualifying, I spent 6 years in private practice where I gained a large amount of experience treating a diverse patient group with a wide-range of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, both sport and non-sport related. Alongside private practice, I have worked in a variety of sport settings including professional football and events such as the London marathon and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games (2014).
With the aim to specialise, I went on to complete an additional masters in Sport and Exercise Medicine from the University of Nottingham. During this time, I worked at the University's Sports Injury Clinic as a Clinician, Clinical Educator, and First Team Physiotherapist for the University Men's Rugby Club.
I moved down to Wiltshire in 2017 for my husband’s work and had to leave a promising Physiotherapy and Pilates business that I had started to grow alongside my university work.
I then spent two years at the University of Bath in the Physio & Sport Science Centre where I spent half my time in clinic and the other half working with Team Bath Superleague Netball.
I recently moved back to the NHS as a Band 7 First Contact Physiotherapist for Primary Care Physio based in West Oxfordshire, whilst also continuing contractual work for Southampton FC Academy based in Bath.
I specialise in sport and musculoskeletal physiotherapy with a keen interest in Pilates, acupuncture, neuromuscular control, biomechanics, sports medicine, performance, and rehabilitation.
Overall, I am a self-driven, determined, and positive person who is always striving to be better. I am passionate about improving the health, wellbeing, and quality of life of those I work with. My main aim as a physiotherapist is to help patients from all backgrounds return to whatever they love to do to the best of their ability.
