How can I help you improve your health?

I completed my Physiotherapy degree at the University of the Witwatersrand in 1988, followed by a two year post-graduate certificate in acute medicine.

During my physiotherapy career I have worked extensively within the South African national health system and the private sector. I have a wealth of experience in the treatment of postoperative conditions, including hip and knee replacements, as well as complex lower limb reconstruction surgery. Previous roles have included working at a large national health hospital in Johannesburg, with rotation and special interest in intensive care work.

I have also worked in several private hospitals, covering both musculoskeletal conditions, as well as inpatient work, and owned a private practice in South Africa for 4 years. I have also the managed the physiotherapy services in Bristol for the last 10 years, as well as health assessments at other sites.

My treatment approach is adapted to each individual’s requirements, and we work in close conjunction with the consultant, to ensure the best outcomes for the patient, with particular attention given to functional goals.

How can I help you improve your health?

After graduating in 2006 from Oxford Brookes University I have worked for both the NHS and private sector in a variety of musculoskeletal settings. These ranged from GP clinics to a large London hospital. This role also gave me the opportunity to teach university students and newly qualified graduates.

During my physiotherapy career I have developed skills in the assessment and treatment of sporting and non-sporting injuries, post-operative rehabilitation, soft tissue injuries, low back and neck pain and antenatal/ postnatal patients. Whilst working in the NHS I developed a specialist interest in vestibular rehabilitation and treating individuals with dizziness disorders such as positional vertigo.

I use a range of treatment techniques including hands on manual therapy, exercise prescription and advice as part of an individualised treatment plan. Outside of work I am a keen swimmer and run regularly, most recently while pushing my double running pram!

How can I help you improve your health?

After graduating from the University of the West of England in 2011, I worked in the NHS, completing rotations in all core aspects of physiotherapy, and I went on to specialise in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
I have experience of working with clients with a broad range of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions, and I am constantly utilising the numerous assessment and treatment skills that I have developed in manual therapy and exercise prescription over the years of working as a musculoskeletal therapist. I have experience of managing acute and sub-acute sporting injuries, having worked in the past with a premiership rugby team and as part of the physiotherapy team at Cardiff City Football Club, working with academy players.
I have completed my acupuncture foundation course and am trained as an APPI Pilates instructor and I regularly incorporate these assessment and treatment skills into my sessions.
