Every member of our team has a passion for improving clients lives, guiding them through the road of recovery to the best possible pain free lifestyle. We became Health care professionals through being naturally caring and active individuals. With an interest in general wellbeing – you know you are in safe hands with any one of our team members.
I developed a keen interest in sport from a young age and have participated in a variety of sports, including running, netball, volleyball and general fitness. I have competed in many leagues, trained with a national league level volleyball club and took part in the county U14 cross-country championships. It is through my experiences that I have been able to see and feel the demands and training requirements necessary to meet personal and sporting excellence.
I studied Sports Science at Winchester University between 2011-2014 gaining an in-depth knowledge in Psychology, Physiology and Biomechanics. Throughout my undergraduate degree, I discovered a passion for Biomechanics and Soft Tissue Therapy, realising the potential a combination of the two could have on improved function and performance ability. I went on to study at Chichester University, completing a postgraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics. Through my time at Chichester University, I further discovered the role of Biomechanics not only in sport, but in everyday activity and the effect postural dysfunction has on daily performance and general comfort.
I have worked as part of the therapy support team for UCI women’s team Storey Racing at the Women’s Tour as well as for UCI women’s team Trek Drops at the Giro Rosa and La Course by the Tour de France.
I have a huge passion for helping others and by using a combined approach of soft tissue & remedial therapy along with biomechanical applications; I can successfully help individuals who are experiencing pain or dysfunction. Most importantly, my aim is to ensure my clients feel the best they ever have.
I qualified as a Physiotherapist from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2004. I am a full member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and The Health Professions Council.
Whilst in South Africa, I completed my community service at various clinics in the community around Johannesburg before continue to work within a Private Hospital Physiotherapy out-patient department. I treated a range of musculoskeletal conditions from headaches and back-pain to post joint replacement rehab and mobilisations. I then spent some time in Australia, where I worked at a transitional care centre providing therapy and care for older people following an acute episode requiring hospital admission, aiming to improve their independence and confidence, allowing them to return to their own home safely.
On returning to South Africa, I joined a private practice specialising in individualised treatments for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions (predominantly neck and back pain, headaches, soft tissue injuries). I also spent time at leading law firm, where I provided physiotherapy services, occupational rehabilitation, and ergonomic education and advice.
My love of being active and healthy, alongside my passion for helping people led me to study physiotherapy and realise my passion for helping people by easing their pain, aiding them in recovery, and educating and empowering them to a happy physical body.
I am very pleased to be a part of the Peak Remedial team, and look forward to helping you, Reach Your Peak.
Having been active in sport and dance since starting school; I had my first ballet lesson in the same week that I started school, and I eventually discovered the desire to work and specialise in musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
I first started work in physiotherapy as an assistant in 1996 as a technician, working at a hospital in Berkshire specialising in Care of the Elderly treating a multitude of conditions across in-patients, out-patients and in the community visiting patients’ homes. While continuing working as a technician, I jumped at the opportunity to complete a part-time physiotherapy BSc course at Brunel University; qualifying with honours in 2007.
I complete my junior rotations working in all areas including out-patients, rheumatology, neurological rehabilitation, orthopaedics, respiratory and ITU, and worked within the NHS until 2012, when I made the change to become a Locum in musculoskeletal & sports injuries in Berkshire and Surrey with a relocation to continue to do so when I relocated to Hampshire in 2018.
Whilst I continue to do ballet classes, I took up fencing in my 40’s, being something I had wanted to do since I was a teenager, and I am a active physiotherapist to a small fencing team as well as being their last resort reserve foilist; and my previous participation in tennis and table tennis representing my clubs in both, and my Grammar school in athletics I understand the dynamics of musculoskeletal injuries in a range of activity and movement.
I fully understand the pain and frustration of injury whether due to sport or not, and the wish of all to return to fitness and participation whatever your level of sport, activity, hobby or job and it is my aim to help you do that.
I am excited to become a part of Peak Remedial Physiotherapy team, and look forward to providing the guidance to ensure you, Reach Your Peak!
