The body has a tremendous capacity to adapt and heal given the right information and stimulus.


I am an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner with a wealth of experience in Sport and Private Practice. I started my career as a fitness instructor before studying Applied Sports Science at Edinburgh University. I then went on to study a Masters degree in Physiotherapy at Birmingham, and later Sports Medicine at Queen Mary’s, University of London.


I currently combine my work as Clinic Director at embrace with contracting in elite sport and working for the NHS Musculoskeletal (MSK) service; here I see more complex presentations, order diagnostic tests and administer steroid injections.


I have significant experience in variety of professional sports and at major sporting events including the Commonwealth Games, Le Mans 24hr Race, The British Open and BUCS national events.

My areas of clinical interest are low limb injuries and endurance sporting performance. I am passionate about empowering patients to make positive health choices and be active in their recovery. As in professional sports I believe access to Physiotherapy should be quick and easy. I love working with young athletes and weekend warriors to help them achieve their personal recovery and movement goals.

I am a keen triathlete and have completed several half ironman distance races. I also enjoy CrossFit, Skiing and Golf. I am married to Estate Manager, Jamie and have two young children, cocker spaniel and labrador.
