QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

I graduated from Bournemouth University in 2020 with a BSc in Sports Therapy. Having enjoyed my undergraduate degree so much I wanted to further my knowledge in sports rehabilitation and strength training. This lead me to completing my masters degree in Strength, Conditioning and Rehabilitation in the September of 2021. I have worked at Eastleigh F.C and was also given the opportunity to spend a week in Norway treating in a sports injury clinic (Nr1 Fitness).

Skills:

Sports massage

MET stretching

Trigger Point Therapy

Myofacial release

Sports injury rehabilitation

Strength Training

Passions:

I believe that any type of exercise and sport is incredibily important for not only an individuals physical well-being but their mental health as well. As a sports therapist my aim for my clients is to be able to get them back into playing their sport or to the gym and keep releasing those endorphins!

WHY DID YOU BECOME A SPORTS THERAPIST?

From a young age I was a keen netball player and loved all types of sport. Having sustained a few injuries myself, I know how disappointing an injury can be for an athlete. I wanted to make the healing, treatment and rehabilitation process a more positive place for athletes/keen sports people.

WHERE WOULD WE FIND YOU IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I love the beach whether that would be swimming in the sea, long walks or running! I got into running during lockdown and its turned into a real passion of mine. I also love spending time with my family and friends (not forgetting my cats Piggy and Monkey and my little dog Wilbur).
