I am a graduate sports therapist from the university of Gloucestershire. I have worked within a number of different sporting environments including football, rugby and American football. I have developed my knowledge of injury assessment, treatment and rehabilitation and gained vast amounts of experience while working with Gloucestershire County RFU, Gloucester RFC developing players programme and the British American football association. I am also a Pilates teacher, which I find a great rehabilitation tool for many peoples injuries or niggles. As a keen cyclist, I have experienced my fair share of injuries. This has helped me to understand the frustration and inconvenience that injuries can cause. My past personal experiences have fuelled my love and determination to help others overcome injury and return to what they love doing whether that is sport or just day to day activities.
I am a Graduate Sports Therapist from the University of Gloucestershire. I have worked within a variety of sports such as Athletics, Football and Rugby Union. I am currently Lead Sports Therapist at Cheltenham North RFC where I have been able to develop and expand my knowledge base of injury assessment, management and rehabilitation. I have also gained experience working with the Cornwall County RFU alongside helping non-sports people within occupational healthcare and health risk management. I am able to deliver treatments including sports massage, manual therapy and electrotherapy as well as having an understanding of the biopsychosocial model and holistic healthcare and the benefits that this can have on musculoskeletal injuries. I am keen to learn new methods of treatment and management for injuries by attending CPD courses. During my personal time, I am a keen runner and swimmer. I am interested in all areas of health and fitness and understand the difficulties that injuries can place on everyday life as well as training schedules.
I have a MSc in Sports Therapy and a PhD in Biomechanics. I worked for several years in gait and rehabilitation research publishing in academic journals and presenting at International conferences. Alongside my clinical work, I am currently an Associate Lecturer at the University of Worcester on Physiotherapy, Health and Sport & Exercise programmes. As a Sports Therapist, I am trained in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injury from initial assessment and management through to return to sport. I am particularly interested in the rehabilitation of tendon and ligament injuries, and believe in working with the individual client to tailor rehabilitation to their individual goals. I am a keen cyclist, and having an academic and clinical background in both musculoskeletal and neurological injury this has lead to my work as a para-cycling classifier for both British Cycling and the Union Cycliste Internationale.
I am a level 3 Sports Massage Therapist about to graduate as a MSST Sports Therapist from Hartpury University, I also have a BSc in Biology (Bristol University). This is a change of direction in career for me as I have spent the last 20 years as an International level Dressage Rider and Coach, so I have plenty of life experience needing the skills of a good massage therapist and/or sports therapist myself. Massage can be an important part of recovery from sports and strenuous activities, as well as helping to manage the stressors of everyday life, and as a coach I know communication is key to tailor treatment sessions for each individual to get the best outcome possible. I am passionate about enabling people to reach their goals (whatever they may be) and try to use a positive focus to find a way forward from injury or illness. My firm belief in movement and its importance to our health and wellbeing has meant I’m about to embark on a Masters Degree in Applied Strength and Conditioning. Whilst studying at Hartpury I have developed my skills and experience working with Equestrian Athletes, the Hartpury Women’s Football Team, Gloucester RFC and the Hartpury Sports injury Clinic. When not working or studying, you’ll find me tramping through the hills with my dog, adventuring outdoors in general or hitting the slopes for some skiing.
