Physio2Therapy is inclusive of a range of clinical, holistic, cosmetic and complimentary therapies, all of which are aimed at making my clients feel good, physically, spiritually and emotionally. By embracing a positive attitude to healing, you are half way there. You can leave the rest of it to me...
I aim to educate my patients in a safe environment while offering you necessary comprehensive care. I understand that many people have anxiety about their physical health, so I created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting. By combining the latest knowledge and keeping up to date with traditional techniques, I am able to offer you excellence in my care and expertise.
I treat many conditions and are always keeping up to date with the latest research evidence to help support my clinical decision making. Keeping up to date with face to face courses is also something of importance to me. Rest assured you are in capable and safe hands when you visit Physio2therapy.
I graduated from the University of Exeter with a sports degree in 2005. At the time I utilised this to pursue a career in teaching. After 3 successful years teaching following completion of a PGCE in primary education and specialising in PE and as the school sports coordinator, I decided that I wanted to change the direction of my career to something that I had some very personal experiences with - physiotherapy!
Throughout life so far, I have been involved in most sports, particularly the 2 wheeled variety. From a young age I loved being on my bike, continuing my need for speed, and have competed in both downhill MTB and MX. On top of this, I have competed nationally in Taekwondo, county level football, and university teams for football, rugby, squash and basketball. I am pretty good at golf too :).
I HAVE RECENTLY FOUND A LOVE FOR YOGA WHICH HELPS UNWIND AND WORK ON THE OLD HAMSTRINGS AND AFTER ANOTHER AMAZING HOLIDAY IN THAILAND, AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR, I HAVE ALSO STARTED TO REGULARLY PARTICIPATE IN MUAY THAI BOXING WHICH I COMPLETELY LOVE.
Throughout this sporting history, I managed to strain, sprain and break various areas of my body and through rehabilitation was able to return with no deficit. This gave me the motivation and insight into my current career as a physiotherapist. After a very intense Master of Science in Physiotherapy, I qualified as a physio in 2012 and have since worked in many establishments. Starting within the NHS, working within stroke rehabilitation, the opportunity arose for me to specialise in my chosen area, down the corridor, in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. From here, I worked in several local hospitals, worked with Colchester united youth teams, physio team at london 2012 olympics ceremonies, marathon runners at London 2016, local sports physio clinics privately, Springfield hospital in Chelmsford, The Oaks private hospital in Colchester and finally set up my own business in what I love!
I currently also work within a couple of private clinics locally on a self employed basis.
Whilst I have emphasised the sporting element, in society today, my work is becoming more and more involved with work related injuries and lifestyle factors that are creating a pandemic of back pain and neck pain. Whatever the pain you have, trust I have plenty of experience with dealing with this both personally and through treating thousands of patients to date.
