I studied to become a Physiotherapist at King?s College London, graduating in 2006. Since then I?ve gained experience in both the NHS and private sector. I have worked with a wide variety of patients from sports people looking to improve their performance, to neurological patients learning to walk again.

Being a Physiotherapist is a really rewarding job. Physiotherapy is a two way process and I have certainly met some very inspiring patients along the way. Anyone with a bit of motivation can benefit from Physiotherapy no matter what their starting point.

I am particularly interested in rehabilitation and injury prevention and this has led me to train to teach yoga and pilates. In my experience these are fantastic for enabling people to better understand their bodies and therefore manage and prevent aches and pains.

When I?m not a work I love being outside. I am happy in a pair of muddy boots exploring the countryside with my partner. I recently hit the slopes for the first time which was a lot of fun but I?ll need a few more lessons before I can call myself a skier!
