WHO WE ARE
Berkshire Physiotherapy has seen three generations involved in its organisation and so we can truly call ourselves a family run business. Many of our patients have remained with us for years and we pride ourselves that we have treated their families too, from babies to grandparents. We aim to give you a warm friendly welcome as well as professional treatment and enough information to help you understand your condition. We stay up to date with the latest advancements in physiotherapy treatment. Our centre includes a large gym, 8 physiotherapy and 2 massage rooms as well as beauty therapy.
I set up Berkshire Physiotherapy nearly 35 years ago and I’m proud that I now share my passion with over 30 staff as we work hard as a team to provide the very best treatment in relaxed surroundings. I spent my early days at Arsenal FC and I’ve been involved over the years in many of the county’s sports teams, Commonwealth Games and have treated a large number of GB athletes.
I’ve been with the clinic as a Director for 33 years and continue to be passionate about my role. I specialise in Neurology and am committed to assisting my patients to feel good about themselves and get the most out of their life despite complex physical problems. I’ve brought up a family in this time too and when time allows I paint and spend time gardening.
I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years, and been part of the team for 16 years. My main interest is in musculoskeletal injuries caused by work and sport. I have a keen interest in the treatment of vertigo and women’s health – an interest that started when I had my own child! I am involved with Bracknell Bees ice hockey team as they partner with Berkshire
I have been working at Berkshire Physiotherapy for nearly 9 years and have over 16 years’ experience. My areas of specific interests are the foot and ankle due to my own past experience of surgery and rehabilitation. I am the specialist for orthotics and use my expertise to create custom build orthotics for numerous conditions. I am a big Brighton fan and love all sports including golf.
My passion for physiotherapy was developed through playing sports and I qualified in 2013. I have a particular interest in treating sporting injuries and tendinopathies. I love keeping my physiotherapy skills up to date by attending regular courses and reading the latest research. In my spare time I enjoy playing football, going to the gym and the occasional round of golf.
My physio career began working here at Berkshire Physio when I was 16 years old as a physio assistant. It inspired me to go on and study physiotherapy at university.
Since qualifying as a physiotherapist I have spent time working in the NHS and with London Irish RFC. I enjoy treating all musculoskeletal problems, with a special interest in sporting injuries, due to my own history of sporting injuries over the years!
I am excited to have recently joined the team at Berkshire Physiotherapy as Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist, having graduated with a degree in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation. I love meeting new clients and helping them reduce pain or tension through deep tissue sports massage. As Personal Trainer I thrive on developing bespoke training schedules and programmes that clearly address my clients’ needs. In my spare time I love to keep fit and see friends.
I’ve worked at the clinic as beauty therapist for 15 years and love every aspect of my job. I specialise in eyelash enhancement, and use the wonderful Sothys products for facials and body treatments. Many of my client have been coming to me for years and I always welcome newcomers for a pamper session. I keep fit in my spare time, going to the gym and for long walks.
My broad experience ranges from private to Elite level sports settings. As a decorated combat athlete, I have a particular passion for sports physiotherapy, having worked as Head of Sports Science and medicine at both League 1 and 2 clubs in the English football league. Through my physiotherapy career I have treated a wide variety of upper and lower extremity injuries with a proven track record of effective injury rehabilitation.
