After graduating from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital School of Physiotherapy in Birmingham in 1985 I worked at hospitals in Oxford and Bedfordshire. Since 1988 I have specialised in orthopaedics and musculoskeletal disorders, with special interest in biomechanics and therapeutic exercise.
I moved to Sussex in 2010, after 14 years in private practice and joined the team here at Shoreham Physiotherapy Clinic.
After 20 years of working as a Physiotherapist I undertook training with the Australian Physiotherapy pilates Institute and qualified as a matwork instructor in 2012. I participate in regular courses and updates, to include specific regimes for Scoliosis, Osteoporosis and Sport Specific Exercise.
Physiotherapy and Pilates makes for a great combination and allows me to bring together different areas of expertise to provide a progressive treatment programme.
Assessment of biomechanical and functional patterns provides information to produce a tailored exercise programme. This targets particular areas of weakness or tightness and can be followed as a home regime or as part of a gym programme or class environment.
Exercises can be progressed with the use of equipment such as resistance bands and swiss balls.
Small group classes at Shoreham Physiotherapy on a Thursday morning have only four clients. This provides an environment ideally suited to beginners and those needing extra attention.
Larger classes are run locally at a hall on Shoreham Beach on Monday afternoons, and have a maximum of twelve clients, ensuring close supervision.’
