“After graduating from UEA I worked in a private practice in Cambridge where I treated people with many different musculoskeletal conditions. I was also fortunate to work with different athletes from rowers, tennis players, swimmers, runners and rugby players. I then came to London and before starting at Tatami Health I worked in the NHS where I gained experience in treating a wide variety of conditions including post operative orthopaedic patients, elderly care, women’s health, cancer care and rehabilitation.

I believe one of the most important things about being a physiotherapist is listening to your needs, setting goals and then working together to achieve them. No matter what they maybe. From treating niggles and aches to more chronic conditions or if you want to get back to a certain level of fitness. I like to use soft tissue techniques and joint mobilisations and I have both Pilates and acupuncture qualifications that I incorporate into my treatment sessions.
Out of work I spend a lot of my time running, on the bike or swimming. Competing in (or more accurately completing!) triathlons and marathons makes me appreciate the importance of strengthening and conditioning to heighten fitness and stability to reduce the risk of injury. I also understand how frustrating an injury can be and equally how important injury management and a rehabilitation programme are to returning to your full fitness.”
