Practice Director and Physiotherapist
I started The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice in 2008 and since then I’m thrilled how the business has grown and I have had the good fortune to be joined by a great team of therapists and my superb admin team.
I undertook my physio training as a mature student, having a previous degree in Engineering and a career working in corporate sales. The decision to retrain was not taken lightly and was a pivotal point in my life, but it has paid dividends in all facets of my life. I now get to connect with the most incredible and diverse people.
I absolutely love my job! I’m truly passionate about getting people back to health and fitness, enabling them to do the things that they love and to live their life to the full.
For me, being a physiotherapist is such a rewarding role, meeting and getting to the root cause of my clients’ pain, putting them at ease and helping them to achieve their goals and reach their full physical.
I’m lucky enough to meet a range of people with different physiotherapy needs, from sports injuries to problems with general balance and mobility, work related disorders and trauma. It makes every day interesting and a challenge!
I treat acute injuries and long term biomechanical problems in clinic, and I offer home visits to those who can’t get to the clinic or who wish to remain as independent as possible around the house. We’re certainly not just a sports injuries clinic!
I’m extremely determined when it comes to treating my patients and getting them better and have successfully treated patients with all kinds of aches and pains.
Happily, I love nothing more than to research and solve a problem! I’ll often approach my patients’ individual ‘puzzles’ from a completely different angle, reading up on the latest techniques in order to solve them.
I also help people to deal with the wider emotional/psychological issues that they sometimes face as a result of injury or limited movement, over and above their physical symptoms.
I am originally from Bradford and attended school locally at Beckfoot before moving to Stoke-on-Trent to study Physiotherapy at Keele University. Upon completing my degree in 2017 I moved back to the area and I have worked at the The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice alongside a full time NHS Physiotherapist role ever since.
I have a special interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and sports injuries, however I also have experience working in critical care, community rehabilitation, intermediate care, cardiac rehabilitation and respiratory physiotherapy.
Since I was a student at Keele University, I have always been a keen and active member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, and in 2019 I decided to take on the new challenge of becoming CSP Steward and Representative within my NHS role.
Graduate Sports Rehabilitator (GSR)
I have always wanted to work in an environment where I can help people. Being able to help reduce pain and improve movement is a great way of impacting people’s daily lives. I started working at The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice in the summer of 2019.
I’ve had experience working in sports clubs and have seen a wide variety of injuries. Currently my main sporting work is within Amputee Football. I work with Manchester City Amputee Football Team and the England Amputee Football National Team. Providing treatments, assessments, pitch-side medical cover and injury rehabilitation/prevention. It is so rewarding and has improved my knowledge base as no one player is the same and is a population I love working with
Sports and Exercise Therapist
My background for the last five years has been working as a personal trainer, specializing in strength and conditioning for endurance and team sports Athletes, with a special interest in proprioception and core stability for optimal sporting performance. I have worked with a variety of abilities from complete beginner to elite level athletes helping them to reach their goals and targets no matter how big or small.
I also take great pleasure working with and helping those from every day walks of life and just want relief from pain that may occur in everyday life. As a Sports and Exercise Therapist, I have worked in both a clinical rehabilitation setting and with performance athletes to prevent and rehabilitate injuries, I am passionate about working with patients to help them perform and rehabilitate to their best ability, whether this is in a recreational or sporting environment.
Footprints Reflexology, ScarWork and Massage Therapies
Working as a Complementary Therapist, I offer Reflexology, Holistic and Deep Tissue Massage, Emmett Technique and ScarWork Massage Therapy.
I am fully quailed within all my therapies and registered with the Association of Reflexology (AOR), Complementary therapist association (CThA) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare council (CNHC). These registrations enable clients to claim on their insurance if they are able, and also the CHNC is recognised by the NHS.
When I’m not working in the clinic, I volunteer one day a week at Cancer Support Yorkshire and work within the community for the Hospice at Home Palliative Care team. I also work closely with the Breast Care nurses offering ScarWork to ladies post Breast Cancer Surgery.
My role at The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice is to welcome clients into the practice, and to assist the Physios with their diagnosing and to help clients understand their bodies and how they work.
I came to know The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice as a patient, with Jacqui supporting me and assisting my mobility whilst struggling with Pelvic Girdle Pain during my pregnancy and then with my subsequent recovery. As well as now being well on the way to being pain free, I also have a part time local job with the Practice, which allows me to have great work-life balance.
I work alongside Sarah to provide all aspects of reception, administration and HR support for the practice.
