After completing a PhD in Psychology and working as a researcher for many years, I decided to leave the lab behind and retrain as a massage therapist. I trained at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) and qualified as a Clinical Sport and Remedial Massage Therapist in 2014. I am passionate about continuing to learn and develop as a therapist and have since completed a number of professional development courses, including Pregnancy/Post-natal massage, Myofascial Release and Reflexology. I’m also enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and work as tutor for LSSM Brighton, on their BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy course.
As a therapist, my main goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to help them overcome pain and discomfort. My treatments are bespoke and I draw on a range of techniques. I also give rehabilitation advice, where needed. I have experience of working with a range of conditions, including low back pain, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, tennis/golfers elbow, and plantar fasciitis.
I am a full member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM) and have professional indemnity insurance and first aid training. My therapeutic qualifications/training:
