Diploma in Injection Therapy, Member of the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine, Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapist and Organisation for Physiotherapists In Private Practice.
I qualified in 1989 at the Bath School of Physiotherapy with a graduate diploma in physiotherapy. I worked for 2 years at Poole General Hospital gaining general basic experience before moving to the Swindon area where I have since progressively specialised in musculosketal medicine.
Since 1999 I have worked at PMH/Great Western Hospital as a clinical Physiotherapy Specialist. I have been closely involved in the setting up and running of Physiotherapy Spinal Orthopaedic Clinics, with local Orthopaedic consultants working in an extended scope practitioner role performing injection therapy, requesting X-rays and MRIs and listing for minor surgery. I have also run a similar clinic for Rheumatology.
I have worked in A&E running acute musculoskeletal review clinics and assessing minor injuries from the "Shop Floor".
I trained as a dancer to a semi-professional level and therefore have a special interest in treating dancers/gymnasts.
I have been in private practice since 1994, initially working from within a fitness centre in Fleet Street, Swindon before moving to my own premises here at Wroughton in 2004. By working both in the NHS and Private Sector I have kept excellent links with GPs, Consultants and other medical colleagues.
I have remained up to date with current research, medical trends and national guidelines. My approach is strongly 'hands on', underpinned with sound clinical reasoning, extensive experience and post graduate training.
I qualified with a BSc in Physiotherapy, from The Queen's College, Glasgow, in 1989 after having gained a BSc in Biological Sciences from Edinburgh University.
After spending 3 years in a rotational post at Glasgow Royal Infirmary I started specialising in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. I held senior positions at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, Singapore General Hospital and then in an Occupational Medicine clinic with a Kaiser Permanente, which is a large health maintenance organisation in the United States.
Through the years I have worked with a broad range of spinal and peripheral musculoskeletal problems. My approach includes manual therapy (in the form of joint mobilisation and myofascial release), education, exercise instruction (including Pilates) Cranial Sacral Therapy and Primal Reflex Release Therapy.
I am committed to my work and I continue to attend courses to maintain and develop my skills and knowledge.
I qualified as a Physiotherapist from The Royal London Hospital in 1989.
I completed my core rotations in Cardiff and developed my skills with post-graduate qualifications including Cyriax & McKenzie concepts, to become a musculoskeletal specialist and a spinal extended scope practitioner in the NHS in Wales.
In 1999 I established my private practice, Cwmbran Physiotherapy Centre and loved helping people recover from injuries and pain to return to full everyday and sporting function.
In 2007 I qualified as a Body Control Pilates Matwork Teacher and have added One2One Clinical Pilates sessions to my Physiotherapy practice as well as running general pilates classes.
I am a keen road cyclist and mountain biker and have a special interest in cycling injuries, core stability for cycling and am qualified in bike fitting.
In 2014 I relocated to Swindon and started working at Swindon Clinical Commissioning as a Subject Matter Expert in Physiotherapy. After several years of commuting to Wales I sold Cwmbran Physiotherapy Centre and Pilates in Wales in 2017 and I joined MKV Physiotherapy Clinic where I have enjoyed being part of this proactive physiotherapy practice and continuing to deliver high quality physiotherapy treatment to patients of all ages.
I qualified with a BSc (HONS) degree in physiotherapy from Keele University in 2011. I spent one year gaining international physiotherapy experience in a private hospital in Nigeria. On my return, I completed my core rotations for 2 years in main hospitals for East Sussex NHS trust and Royal Berkshire NHS trust. I then moved to Swindon in 2015 where i have worked in senior positions, gaining experience in A+E, community rehabilitation, disability assessments and occupational health before specialising in general musculoskeletal outpatients.
I am passionate about providing a high quality of care and a pleasant experience to my clients. I believe strongly in ‘hands on’ manual treatment and practising an individualised exercise programme together. Through my experience i have seen the benefits of using effective manual techniques for all areas/joints of the body. I aim to empower my clients, so together we can identify their goals and aims of treatment and achieve great results together.
