I graduated from Coventry University in 2001 with BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy. I worked as a qualified Physiotherapist in Cardiff
and Vale NHS Trust. I successfully completed rotations on Care of the Elderly, Respiratory, Intensive Care Unit, High Dependency Unit, Cystic Fibrosis Unit, Llandough Day Hospital, Neurology Outpatients, Stroke Unit, Community Physiotherapy, Paediatrics, Paediatric Orthopaedics, Paediatric Outpatients, Paediatric Oncology, Adolescent Oncology, General Outpatients, Hydrotherapy, slow stream rehabilitation, Acute Response Team, and Orthopaedics. In total I have been fortunate in experiencing 4 years and 2 months within Trauma and Orthopaedics since qualifying in 2001. I rotated into an Orthopaedic post in February 2004 and was a Team Leader Senior Band 7 Physiotherapist in that department for approximately 4 years.
I started working for a Global Bracing and Support Company in 2008 as a Clinical Specialist. I was very fortunate to have training from leading UK Professionals in Gait analysis, Biomechanics and Cranial Remolding thus further increasing my knowledge and skills within these areas. I also had the opportunity of using the latest state of the art equipment in Gait Analysis, RSscan and Quintic analysis.
I have known for a very long time that my end goal and ambitions were to open up a clinic of my own and continue building my reputation within the Orthopaedic, Biomechanical and Cranial fields. Instead of my reputation being linked to a Global Company, I could continue to build my reputation for myself. I have combined my clinical knowledge and skills from my years within the NHS, linked with the specialist skills gained within the private field, alongside the business side of running, managing and marketing clinics, I felt I had gained an all round understanding of successfully managing a clinic. I also felt that I could provide a much better, non biased, more professional approach, being more client driven than target driven. Having successfully managed and worked in three separate clinics which I set up for a larger company, I decided to set up my own clinic within the centre of Cardiff and alongside this a clinic in Bristol.
