In 2010 I graduated from Teesside University after studying for 3 years with a first class honours degree in Sports Therapy. I also completed a Masters in Advanced Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Science in 2011 and in 2013 completed my PGCE. Through my BSc and MSc studies I am proficient in a wide range of manual techniques including peripheral and spinal mobilisations, deep tissue massage, kinesio taping and I am also a practitioner of the cupping therapy method and Myofascial Release techniques. I have also completed a postgraduate certificate in performance nutrition and currently lecture in many of these topics at Darlington College along with presenting workshops as a guest lecturer at Teesside University. Recenly I have completed qulaifications in pregnancy massage and fascia, foam rollers and massage balls.
When I was 18, after completing a Sports Science BTEC at college I played football on a full sports scholarship in the USA and therefore have valuable first hand understanding of the commitment and support athletes need to succeed in their chosen sports. After suffering a career ending injury I decided to return home to complete my degree at Teesside University. I continued to return to the USA during summer breaks after making contacts with Orthopaedic surgeons and Athletic trainers to professional American football teams, which is where I completed my practice placements during degree training. This also included working with college and high school level athletes giving me great experience working with all ages as well as vital knowledge with different treatment and rehabilitation methods to return the athletes to full functional fitness. Since completing my studies I have lived in Stokesley so I am local to the area and familiar with the countryside terrain many people train on and therefore can appreciate the demands it puts on the body.
As well as having a large patient base of sports people I also have a compassionate understanding for people who want to achieve a pain free level of day to day activity whatever it may be, which I aid and support patients to achieve through assessment, treatment and rehabilitation modalities.
Having gained my personal training qualifications I now offer PT sessions from my house where I have substantial gym equipment which can be utilised to maintain function, strength and cardiovascular fitness. I progress sessions in consideration of injury history, age, function, ability and goals. Exercise sessions primarily incorporate body weight exercises and weight equipment and could include: Pilates core strength, Strength/weight circuit, CV fitness circuit, HIIT session, Stability ball core workout, Resistance band session.All equipment is provided with sessions lasting for 45-60 minutes at £20 per session. Call to discuss details and availability – typically Wednesday and Friday mornings between 9-12pm and Tuesday and Thursday evening between 6-7.30pm.
In my spare time when not treating patients in clinic or teaching students at the College and University I like to stay active by swimming, running and cycling as well as playing a number of sports with friends and family. My husband completes Iron Man and Triathlon challenges around the country and I regularly support him in these contests. I also enjoy traveling far and wide to experience as many corners of the world as possible, surfing and SUP’ing when possible.
