Why physio?

I am passionate about the distinctive role of physiotherapy, which allows for personalised, one-on-one interactions with individuals. It is a privilege to listen to people’s stories and collaborate on strategies that leverage movement, function promotion, and healthy habits to facilitate a transformative journey towards well-being. I find great satisfaction in devising tailored approaches to enhance strength, encourage new movement patterns, and advocate for a holistic lifestyle that optimises the body’s inherent potential.

What do you believe your role is as a physiotherapist?

As a physiotherapist, I see my role as guiding individuals in overcoming their challenges and realising the goals they share with me during our initial session. I tailor my approach, incorporating hands-on therapy, education, and personalised exercise programs to best address each person’s specific needs. While some may require only a few sessions to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for self-management, others embark on a lifelong journey of setting and achieving incremental goals. My aim is to support and empower individuals at every step of their unique health and wellness journey.

Why did you become a physio?

I chose to pursue a career in physiotherapy because of my sincere desire to help others in enhancing and preserving their health.

What do you believe your role is as a physiotherapist?

There are lot of misconceptions and outdated beliefs and knowledge in the field of health. As a physio I believe it is my duty to always keep patients informed and provide them with the accurate and up to date knowledge they need, in addition to helping them navigate through the injury they are currently experiencing. People come to us seeking solutions to their problems. I believe, if we are not equipped to provide them with the most applicable, personalized solution we would be doing a disservice not only to the patient but also to this wonderful ever evolving profession.

Why did you become a physio?

I became a physio mainly due to the huge interest I have in sports. Witnessing the transformative impact of physiotherapy on high-level athletes inspired me to educate and empower people, instilling hope and resilience in them as they navigate their own healing journeys. Beyond my professional endeavors, I myself underwent numerous injuries during my sporting career, and have seen how high level athletes receive treatments from physios and get back to their sport in amazing shape. Being a physio provides me with the opportunity to educate patients, give them hope and create a positive change in their lives. I feel delighted when I am able to help people be stronger and more present for their loved ones without worrying about injury/conditions.

What are some of your hobbies?

Going to the gym and working out till I pass out, hiking and reading.

What does health mean to you?

Health is the foundation of all the things we do in life. As a physio I highly believe in taking care of my health not only for personal well being, but also for the comfort of others. Health is not only limited to physical attributes, but also includes psychological and social aspects of life. The healthier I am, better service I can provide for my patients and a more active and enjoyable presence I can be in the lives of my family and the people I adore.
