I qualified as a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy in 1995 from University College London and The Middlesex Hospital School of Physiotherapy with 1st class Honours.

My early clinical experience was gained in the London teaching hospitals, before moving back to Somerset and gaining a post at Musgrove Park Hospital, where, before leaving to join Albury House Group Practice, I was working as a senior physiotherapist within the musculoskeletal clinic, and specialist hand team.

I joined Albury House Group practice over 10 years ago, and my particular interest in hand therapy has continued, through my referral work with the highly respected hand surgeon, Mr. A.M.Clarke (FRCS) Orth.

My years of hospital experience and 'hands on' treatment style, integrate completely with the multidisciplinary team approach at Albury House, and complement the many years of treating orthopaedic conditions and sports injuries in both adolescents and adults.

As a full member of Physiofirst, professional development and evidence based practice are striven for, and as past South-West representative on the executive committee of the Association of Orthopaedic Chartered Physiotherapists, as with all in the practice, I aim to combine my years of clinical experience with research based treatments tailored to our patients needs.
