My Profile Summary - Please do contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:

As a graduate physiotherapy student from King’s College London, achieving a merit grade (having previously gained a 2:1 Honors degree in Sports Science and Physiology from the University of Leeds), I have found my years in further education extremely interesting and enjoyable. I’ve had the opportunity to develop my clinical reasoning, communication skills, and professionalism, while furthering my knowledge of current practice and various medical presentations. I am a member of the CSP and have applied for my HCPC membership.

Throughout my masters I have worked alongside study; as a sports masseur in a weightlifting gym and also in operations and logistics for a chauffeur company on an ad hoc basis. These jobs have allowed me to manage both myself plus multiple other people, prioritising clients, my time and employees time alike in an often unpredictable environment. Being client facing has taught me how to have a professional demeanour, maintaining it in high stress situations. Further to this, working on placement at various different trusts has allowed me to abide by, and promote, differing trust values.

Through my placements in musculoskeletal outpatients, orthopaedics, stroke, respiratory (surgery and medicine) and HIV and infectious diseases, I was able to develop transferrable skills and experience from different working environments (including seven day working). I gained experience in caseload management, referral protocol, multidisciplinary team communication (ward rounds, meetings and joint treatment sessions), effective note writing and safe use of therapeutic aids. I was also taught effective communication strategies for more sensitive cases through the SAGE and THYME model. This allowed me to also further both my non-verbal and verbal communication skills for effective treatment.

As I developed my clinical abilities through my placements, I was able to become more autonomous in my practice. On my final placement in HIV, I was confident with independent caseload management, achieving a first class grade on my final placement review. I was also able to partake in the management of an outpatient Kobler rehabilitation class, collecting data for future research. However, despite feeling comfortable being independent, I am aware of the scope of my practice and I am happy seeking help or guidance from other members of staff when necessary. Further to this, I was able to determine my own learning needs and goals for each placement, taking my feedback from other staff members and reflection on my performance to adapt my practice to further my professional development.

On each placement I was taught a variety of assessment techniques, continuing my learning through self directed study to understand the evidence behind their uses. This allowed me to determine a problem list for each patient in regards to activity and participation limitations. This then allowed me to safely administer treatment effectively, give advice and prescribe exercise using SMART goals to maximise recovery. I ensured that each intervention was agreed with the patient to ensure that they consented and felt comfortable with the treatments given. I was also able to modify treatment in accordance to progression of recovery through the use of relevant outcome measures.

I also enjoy working within a multi-disciplinary team and enjoy the camaraderie of overcoming potential obstacles through helping each other. This is a value that I have held important since childhood, having been part of many sports teams throughout school and holding two different sports committee positions during my undergraduate degree. I’ve found my experiences has given me the confidence to voice my opinion when appropriate, but also accept help and advice when needed to help the team perform to the best of their ability.
