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

After experiencing the benefits of physiotherapy first-hand at Spire Parkway Hospital, I have recently graduated from Coventry University, with a First Class degree in BSc Physiotherapy. I am confident that I have the ideal characteristics for a Physiotherapist position as I have gained a wide range of experience during my clinical placements. My clinical experience has been in a variety of locations covering the core areas of Physiotherapy, as well as more niche areas such as Mental Health and Burns Rehabilitation. I have a range of multi-tasking and organisational skills with ability to work closely with the multidisciplinary team for the benefit of patients. I have extensive client facing skills and able to devise appropriate treatment plans for them in line with their goals.

During a placement within a secure mental health unit, I developed a keen interest in mental health physiotherapy and gained rehabilitation experience with adults, who have a range of mental illnesses. I developed effective practice skills in core areas of physiotherapy; cardio-respiratory, musculoskeletal and neurology, while discovering how physical health can be affected by mental health as patients were treated holistically. I coped well with stressful situations and worked in routine and non-routine situations, having to reassure and negotiate with patients whilst concentrating on their assessment and treatment. I developed communication skills and problem solving skills while encouraging patients to comply with physiotherapy and help them understand the benefits of therapy.

During my placement on ITU, I developed skills in respiratory assessment and treatment. My educator encouraged my development in autonomy and self-management of daily caseload and noted I was ‘able to be flexible and adapt to non-routine situations’. During this placement I contributed to a weekend service, covering priority patients across various wards in the hospital. I was commended on my communication skills and ‘excellent ability to learn and adapt.’

My neurology placement was within a stroke unit. Flexibility was important and I often modified treatment techniques in line with patient needs and regularly varying treatment options to keep it challenging and interesting for patients. My educator noted that I showed ‘effective communication in complex situations, working with patients with severe cognitive impairment, speech impairment and emotionally distressed patients’. During the placement I was able to effectively manage my caseload and work closely with the multi-disciplinary team.

A placement within a busy musculoskeletal department allowed me to develop experience in outpatients and encouraged me to increase the pace that I safely treat patients and write notes. I developed confidence assessing and treating orthopaedic patients and was involved in delivering group therapy classes.

Each placement has developed my personal and professional skills. Reflective practice is used continually to assess personal performance and challenge myself to improve. Results for placements have been consistently good, showing progression and independence throughout each placement and a desire to learn and achieve in different settings.

In July 2016, I spent one month in Sri Lanka with Work the World, delivering physiotherapy within Kandy General Teaching Hospital and gaining invaluable experience of healthcare abroad. I developed non-verbal communication skills with people who speak a different language, became creative in treatment techniques when equipment was not available and worked in restricted spaces on busy wards and around patient’s bed spaces.

I completed my studies at Coventry University in July 2017, and I have applied for HCPC registration. I believe that the skills acquired during my varied clinical placements, along with my extra-curricular experience will transfer into my work as a qualified physiotherapist.
