About Me and My Practice

I am the Clinical Manager and Physiotherapist of RATA South. RATA South is a private, community-based allied health rehabilitation team. Our services include: Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietitians, Speech and Language Therapy, Community Nurses, and Clinical Psychology.

My area of interest is working alongside individuals who have sustained complex or serious injury across all age groups.

I am also a qualified Nordic Walking Instructor.

In 2010 I was part of the team that developed the HEAD START programme. This active movement programme was developed to assist children to achieve the basic foundational movement skills required to learn in later life. Sessions are term based and run for 45 minutes.
