MSc Sports Therapy and MSc Professional Practice in Sports Therapy

Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences

I always wanted to work in sport after going to my first football game at the age of 11. I have been privileged to have worked with some fantastic athletes and my job has taken me all over the world.


In my career I have worked with lots of different sports. My most recent achievement was Graduate Sports Therapist for The Rest of the World vs Great Britain and Ireland for the David Beckham UNICEF game at Old Trafford in front of a crowd of 76,000.

I am Clinical Director for my own Sports Therapy clinic and I work with several local rugby teams in the area.
