Experience & Background

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in Manchester, UK in 1988. Over my 30+ years of experience I have had a diverse and interesting career working in lots of different specialties. Initially I completed the standard 2 year junior rotations in the NHS in Liverpool, and quickly became interested in neurological rehabilitation. I was given the opportunity to work in Canada at the end of the 2 years rotations, and worked in a district general hospital in Ontario for a year in rehabilitation settings. On my return to the UK I was promoted through the NHS in Stoke on Trent and then Manchester, to ultimately becoming a Senior Physiotherapist specialising in stroke.

While working as a specialist in stroke rehabilitation I decided to deepen my knowledge by beginning a Master’s Degree at Salford University. I studied part time while also continuing to lead a team working on an acute stroke rehabilitation unit in Manchester. I completed the Master’s Degree in Health Practice in 2000. 

After the completion of my Master’s degree I worked in Bermuda for 5 years, working in every hospital department: orthopaedics, ICU, medical and surgical wards, musculoskeletal, spinal injuries, stroke, amputees and after 3 years there I was promoted to be the Rehabilitation Coordinator at the hospital. I was responsible for managing the physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapy staff, before my husband’s job had us moving back to the UK again.

Back in the UK, in South Wales, I worked part time with private stroke patients, as well as in the NHS in oncology, intermediate care and rehabilitation departments.

 I moved to Hong Kong with my husband and baby daughter in 2008. While in Hong Kong I mainly worked with musculoskeletal and sports injuries as well as at sporting events such as the HK Rugby Sevens. However, I have always retained a strong interest in neurological rehabilitation, so when my family moved back to the UK in 2017, I returned to the NHS working once again as a specialist stroke physiotherapist. As life is anything but predictable, we moved back to Hong Kong yet again in 2019! 

At Posture Plus I not only provide in-clinic appointments, but I also offer physiotherapy home visits to patients who can benefit from home-based therapy sessions.

Clinical Interests

While I am happy  to treat all the common muscular sprains and strains that bring a patient to the physiotherapy clinic, I’m most interested in treating neurological conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis.

Due to the current situation, I am also very interested in the treatment of Long Covid clients as I have treated patients with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) and CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) in the past. Long Covid has many similarities to ME/CFS in presentation and symptoms, and we are going to have an increasing number of patients with Long Covid symptoms as a result of the pandemic.

I offer Home Visits to patients who would find it difficult to get into the clinic because of their condition or mobility, or who would benefit from having their treatment at home.

Personal Interests

I love to stay active and I enjoy hiking, walking, and yoga. I have sung with the Hong Kong Women’s Choir since 2010.  I am a member of the choir’s executive committee helping to raise funds for local charities, and I am also the choir’s choreographer.

Future Aims

In the future I plan to keep learning, keep following the evidence from research for the best physiotherapy treatments, keep my physiotherapy skills up to date and continue to work with my patients to get the best outcomes.
