Experience

BACKGROUND

I qualified in 2005 from the University of Brighton.  Initially I worked at Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals completing various rotations including neuro rehab, musculoskeletal, orthopaedics and respiratory.

I then moved to the community in North London where I gained an extensive knowledge of falls prevention, balance and vestibular problems.  I attended forums and community groups giving talks on Falls prevention and ran an NHS Falls Prevention Programme in Enfield.  I also worked with people with long term neurological conditions such as Parkinson's Disease, strokes and Multiple Sclerosis to provide neuro rehabilitation.

CURRENTLY

In the past 4 years I have worked within a St Albans GP practice as the lead Physiotherapist and continue to work in a private clinic in Harpenden and an NHS clinic in Luton.

 

I am able to provide holistic Physio at home in Harpenden and the surrounding areas to help you maximize your independence and reach your full potential following a range of setbacks such as hospital admission, post operatively and any deterioration in mobility due to long term health conditions.
