How can we help?
Get in touch
My career has so far seen me working with patients of all ages and at all stages of health, from babies upwards. I greatly enjoy the variety and have developed my clinical expertise by working in many different environments from sports grounds such as Twickenham, deploying on numerous occasions as an Army physiotherapist, through to working in hospitals, clinics, schools and businesses.
I will treat you, not just your injury. That’s why I will do more than just treat your symptoms, I will look to address the root cause, listen, set goals and create a personalised treatment plan after discussing the best and most appropriate treatment options with you. All to help you return to your best life possible. I am passionate about providing exceptional care and will work closely with you throughout your treatment to get you back to the simple pleasures of working, sleeping, playing and living life to the full.
Being able to spend time with people to help them regain their independence and reducing pain is the fundamental reason why I became a physiotherapist and after more than 21 years of working, I can proudly say, “I still love doing what I do!”
I have completed many post-graduate and professional courses, including gaining recognition as an advanced physiotherapy practitioner. This means I can perform additional activities traditionally reserved to the role of the medical staff and beyond those of a regular physiotherapist. In my case this means I can directly request diagnostic imaging here at OSD Healthcare, when it is clinically indicated for musculoskeletal conditions. Another advanced skill is that since 2011, I have been performing corticosteroid and hyaluronic acid joint and soft tissue injections. Both these skills are in addition to using evidence-based therapy and working with someone to rehabilitate an injury, manage a condition or prepare for surgery, whether you want to get back to doing the weekly shopping or running an Ironman.
I am fascinated by how amazing the human body and mind is, by how we can influence it to adapt, recover and overcome problems.
Things that make me happy; discharging a patient knowing they are managing better than before they started treatment or, hearing a patient has come to see me because someone recommended me. Oh, and I must add, coffee and cake!
To balance my love of cake, you may find me working off some calories, enjoying the fresh air and continual challenge that the game of golf provides or, running with Bailey, my working cocker spaniel who at 13 is still faster than I will ever be! But that doesn’t matter, for me it is all about getting out there and doing something.
