After graduating from Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh with a BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, I went travelling and then worked for many years for the NHS, in Foundation and Community Hospitals, Consultant Clinics and GP Surgeries.
During this time I gained extensive knowledge and skill in rehabilitation, working in a broad spectrum of medical specialties including orthopaedics, neurology, respiratory, paediatrics, hydrotherapy, gym rehab and outpatients enabling me to draw from a multifaceted experience and therapy base. I have been involved in training and teaching of students from different universities, junior staff and fellow medical professionals, exchanging knowledge and understanding of my own profession and other related fields of treatment to achieve the best outcomes for my clients.
I then went on to extend and specialise my skills to higher levels in the musculoskeletal outpatient field dealing with all manner of injuries and dysfunctions. I have a special interest in specific soft tissue therapies and pride myself on rehabilitating clients with a holistic management and treatment approach derived from a thorough and comprehensive assessment. Following increasing requests for private treatment and a desire to provide excellent service to my clients - giving them time and quality therapy - I decided to start my own private physiotherapy service - Touch Physio - based in Newbury.
I get a great deal of satisfaction from rehabilitating clients to help them achieve their goals. Helping someone overcome an issue whether large or small which is limiting potential to achieve a greater quality of life, to improve sporting performance or to just be without pain or restriction, is hugely rewarding.
To relax, I like to spend time outdoors in the beautiful Berkshire and North Hampshire countryside and I am a keen horse rider and dog walker. Also, I love to hit a dance floor and cut some moves!
