Director of KPC Therapy Centre

Qualified APPI Pilates Instuctor

I qualified as a physiotherapist over 25 years ago and gained an MSc in Health Care Policy and Management. I opened the Kenilworth Physiotherapy Centre in 2007 and due to its success relocated to larger premises in Warwick in 2017.

I previously worked at Warwick Hospital leading the team of advanced physiotherapy practitioners (Physiotherapists with extended skills and knowledge)   This provided great links with the orthopaedic surgeons. I have a keen interest in hip and knee replacements and aim to offer support and guidance to ensure patients reach their full potential post operatively. 

 

I am APPI qualified to teach Clinical Pilates. I use this in both a group and one to one basis.

 

I am a ‘hands on’ physiotherapist treating all Musculoskeletal problems and offer clear explanations of the problem and how best to treat it. This is supported with advice on self management approach and home exercises where appropriate.
