Following a skiing accident which resulted in multiple structure damage to my knee. I had to have knee surgery twice and lots of physiotherapy routinely, pre and post operatively. It was there I discovered the gap between being able to walk around and perform in my sport to the level I had done before the accident. This inspired me to study a degree in Sports Therapy, to bridge this gap and provide immediate care and rehabilitation. I now provide treatment and rehabilitation from day 1 to returning you to the game/sport you love and hopefully beyond to a better athlete than previously.

 

Having been injured for a number of seasons I understand the psychological turmoil an athlete goes through when injured this has helped me to empathise with my clients to get the best out of a rehabilitation programme.

Outside of the clinic, I currently teach for Anglia Ruskin University on their sport and exercise therapy degree. I also tutor at Sports Therapy UK teaching on a variety of their courses.

 

I play football competitively for a women's football team, enjoy getting out on the golf course and also fit in some Crossfit.

    I qualified as a Sport Rehabilitator in June 2019 and continued my education at the University of Hull to gain a masters in Sport Rehabilitation, where I graduated in June 2020.

    During my time at university I have worked with professional and semi professional athletes in rugby and Ice hockey and this was a fantastic opportunity. I have also worked with the general public helping with their musculoskeletal injuries and allowing them to get back to normal.

    I am excited to meet new patients, I have experienced being in pain from my own injuries and I understand the challenges it brings with it. It’s from this experience that made me chose my career and want to help others.

      I graduated university with First Class Honours in BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Therapy in 2022 from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, I am also a member of The Society of Sports Therapists.

      During my degree, I gained experienced in treating in both clinic and sporting environments, this allowed me to gain exposure to a vast range of individuals, injuries and sports. In particular, I have worked with a semi-professional netball team, I have also worked at charity events such as the three peaks challenge, rugby and netball tournaments and half and full marathons.

      Having previously gone through intense physiotherapy as a young teenager for a long term back pain, this inspired me to step into the industry and want to make a positive difference. I have a background in hockey, netball and dance and have had my fair share of injuries, and because of this gives me even more understanding of both the physiological and psychological impacts of an injury or long term pain, and the importance of a supportive, positive professional working alongside you. 
       

      I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading journal articles and attending CPD webinars to keep up to date with the latest research within this field and I believe everyone should experience the best possible treatment whatever the injury may be, with this treatment both patient centred and backed by up to date research which is what I based my practice around, and will work with you to achieve your goals.

      I enjoy keeping active and hope to complete some fitness class instruction courses in the future to expand my field of practice and hope to use my knowledge to teach in the future.
