I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1986 from Bath School of Physiotherapy and have worked in both the NHS and private practice since. This has meant a wealth of experience including orthopaedic and musculoskeletal medicine at the Middlesex Hospital and Peterborough Hospitals, cardiac and respiratory medicine at the Royal Brompton Hospital and a great stint on an exchange programme to Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia.
I have continued training since qualifying, particularly in headache and migraine management, back and shoulder pain, running and other sporting injuries. I qualified in acupuncture and Pilates as adjuncts to physiotherapy.
I particularly benefited from studying with elite rehabilitation consultant, Joanne Elphinstone. As Joanne says “The most enduring relationship of your life is the one that you have with your body.”
When working with patients, whether young or old, sporting or more sedentary, I use hands on physiotherapy alongside exercise to improve movement, help restore confidence in the body and enable people to live life to the full.
I have lived and worked in the Stamford area for 30 years. My proudest achievement is raising two fabulous children. When not working I can be found enjoying sport, travelling, theatre, film, and knitting! I keep fit with walking and boot camps and I’m a “shout it from the rooftops” advocate for parkrun.
