I am a Chartered Physiotherapist with 30 years experience, working predominantly with musculoskeletal conditions (please see my website for examples).
I originally worked in the NHS but, after twice travelling around and working in Australia, I emigrated there in 2001. I continued to work in the musculoskeletal field of physiotherapy, educated students and became examiner for overseas physios wishing to work in Australia.
I went on to work in more specialist areas such as treating hand and upper limb injuries, including those requiring plastic surgery; treatment of scar tissue; the management of lymphoedema and vascular disorders; treating patients post surgery for certain cancers.
I was forced to stop work and return to the UK in 2015 after an injury. Having initially trained in Myofascial Release (MFR) in 2006 I knew that this was the treatment I needed. At first unable to find a health professional who could provide the style of intervention I needed. I treated myself whilst setting out to increase my knowledge and training in MFR.
After 2 years I was able to return to work and now use MFR for the majority of my clients, who typically have some degree of chronic pain. I have an interest in complementary health and am a firm believer in treating holistically.
Having been "on the other side" of health care I feel I can truly relate to my clients and some of the issues they may be going through.
