I graduated as a Physiotherapist in Glasgow in 1985 and gained a further post graduate MSC in Applied Biomechanics from Strathclyde University,Glasgow in 2005. I worked for the NHS for 27 years in 5 different hospitals gaining experience in a variety of clinical areas before retiring from NHS Physiotherapy in May 2012 to concentrate on my private practice and spend more time with my 4 lovely children.
I am also a visiting physiotherapy lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University and continue to supervise students in my private work .
I have gained valuable experience as a sports physiotherapist working with the Glasgow Celtic Youth Academy for 7 years and I am currently working with various teams at the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) and the Scottish Football Association.
I have been the physiotherapy advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service since its inception and I am responsible for arranging physiotherapy clinical lectures in the Glasgow area.
I believe strongly that whenever possible patients should take responsibility for their own health and my aim as a physiotherapist is to guide them to achieve their maximum potential.
I am a keen marathon and ultra marathon runner and understand the impact injury and surgery can have on patients.
I am available to see patients in both the southside of Glasgow at my clinic in Cardonald which is just through the Clyde tunnel and at Hampden Sports Clinic. I will happily recommend another Physiotherapist if it is more suitable for patients from a clinical or location perspective to see someone else.
