As well as being a qualified and experienced sports rehabilitation therapist, I am also a running and strength coach and fitness instructor. With this diversity of skills, I am fully equipped to see you achieve your goals whilst remaining uninjured, focused and motivated.
Having worked with athletes of all abilities including beginners, I have a passion for motivating others and this is the reason for also qualifying to become a strength trainer. I believe in re-learning the movement skills for life which many of us have forgotten! For this reason, much of my work is based around adopting 'optimum posture' (within individual limits) and movement refinement to reduce injury risk and improve quality of life. As my work is founded on this philosophy, I can offer something for everyone. I adapt all my sessions according to the participants as I recognise that there is individuality within all of us.
After studying Sport and Exercise Rehabilitation with Plymouth University in 2011, I became self-employed and have been practicing rehabilitation and soft tissue therapy ever since. I worked for 8 years as a sports therapist with N2 Taunton Titans RFC and also joined North Petherton RFC in 2018. In the past, I have worked with the British Army, Somerset and Yorkshire cricket teams, alongside osteopaths, chiropractors and other professionals and covered events, tournaments and matches. I am constantly updating my knowledge by doing research and attending CPD courses around the country.
This combination of skills ensures that I can offer an holistic approach to your training to get the best possible results!
When I am not working I love to run off-road and have completed a variety of distances including a 100k ultramarathon in Austria.
