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.
With a love for sports and people I chose to look into a working environment which allowed me to continue my passion for both. I achieved BSc(Hons) in Sport Therapy, back in June 2017 and MSc Athletic Development and Peak Performance in October 2019, allowing me to develop the ‘inner’ athlete. These qualifications have granted me the ability to explore my favourite sports in detail and explore new avenues that I now wish to share and use to develop and educate others.
As an active member of The Society of Sports Therapy, I specialise focus on functional biomechanics, analysis of sports performance and injury prevention. I have worked within various backgrounds, including professional sailing (America’s Cup), volleyball, and wheelchair rugby (worked with GB athletes), and recently reconnected with my love for Netball to compliment my love of water sports; kayaking, (outdoor) swimming, and gig pulling.
Away from my role in education, I can often be found on the side of a rugby field supporting the local 15, whilst also engaged in supporting the London Nomads 7s and Compeed Marlborough Nomads with their players and has recently been allocated Elite Women’s team (players range from Premiership through to International).
My passion is to educate and enable individuals to reach their optimal performance. I am very pleased to be joining the team at Peak Remedial to enable a level of education and development to suit you as a client and get begin the journey to a better quality of life.
As Peak Remedial continues to grow, we are always on the lookout for new people to join our team. If you are looking for a new challenge working within a dynamic and supportive environment, or think you have got a skill that would enhance Peak Remedial please contact us on [email protected]
