I am a Charterd Physiotherapist and my clinical specialties include musculoskeletal (adult and paediatric) and sports medicine. I have an interest in movement re-education and the use of soft tissue treatments.

I work part time at the university and still work clinically and as a freelance lecturer teaching on sports massage and musculoskeletal themes.
