I am focused on finding the underlying problem that’s causing the pain or injury rather than just the symptoms.
My sole aim is to help you achieve and maintain optimum health for the future.
I qualified in 2008 with an MSc in Physiotherapy from the University of Birmingham and a BSc (Hons) in Sports Rehabilitation from St Marys College in 2006.
I have spent the last 10 years working at Loughborough University Physiotherapy clinic for treating elite athletes of all sports, as well as being the lead physiotherapist for the Loughborough students 1st XV rugby team and the clinical lead physiotherapist for the University clinic.
I have also been involved with the GB Bobsleigh, GB Judo squad and Leicestershire County Cricket Club and am currently the head Physiotherapist at Solihull School.
What I do:
Graduating with a BSc in Athletic Therapy and Training from Dublin City University in 2016, I went on to work in Private Physiotherapy Practice specialising in Musculoskeletal Injuries. I am also a fully certified Pilates instructor with a keen interest in strength and conditioning.
I gained valuable experience working with DCU Athletic, Elite level Gealic Football (Mayo Senior Gaelic Football), and as the Head Athletic Therapist for Longford Senior Hurling Team.
I have played sports all my life and have suffered a few injuries myself.
As a teenager I had to have a hip operation (FAI) and it triggered my interest in this field. I became keenly interested in how the body works and saw first hand just how important a physiotherapist is in the recovery from injury. From this I was driven to help people achieve their physical goals in life and being a Therapist would allow me to do this.
What I do:
During my time at university I actively completed several placements in professional and elite sport. I spent two years as a first team sports therapist at Leamington FC who currently play in the national league north. After gaining valuable experience there I was offered the role as Head of Medical for the academy. Additionally, I gained experience with Aston Villa FC and Birmingham City FC within their academies.
My interest in the human body, injury and rehabilitation was ever growing throughout my teenage years. When combined with my love and passion for sport, this drove me to become a therapist and help those in need to return to doing what they love, whether that is walking the dog or playing at the highest level of sport.
SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPIST
What I do:
I am a qualified Personal Trainer and have a great interest in how the body moves and muscle structures within the human body.
Seeing people on a daily basis with varying degrees of muscular imbalances and injuries naturally lead me on to a path of sports massage therapy.
I have found that the two careers compliment each other in my understanding of biomechanics.

I played rugby when I was younger and was very active in various recreational activities, martial arts, roller blading, athletics club (sprinting), ice skating, dive boarding.
I am also a keen cyclist and enjoy keeping fit in and out of the gym. I enjoy trekking up and sometimes even cycling up mountains when I get the chance. And every year for the past few year except 2020 I have took part in the wolf run which is great fun.
