My Profile Summary - Please contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:
I am an enthusiastic, ambitious, hard working physiotherapist. Since graduating I have worked in various physiotherapy fields, including Great British judo, professional and international football, NHS service development and private clinics. While I have enjoyed working within these various fields, my primary interest is in private practice.
I thoroughly enjoy managing complex pathologies from the initial diagnosis, liaising with the relevant clinicians, right through to end stage rehabilitation.
I have previously worked in London in private practices, returning to Ireland in 2015 to do a Masters in Sports Medicine at Trinity College Dublin. I am shortly returning to London to live long-term, and I am looking for a private practice position which is a good fit for both myself and the clinic.
I believe as a physiotherapist I have a responsibility to stay up to date with the latest research and evidence, and then to combine these emerging practices with my clinical skills, which I have developed extensively through experience.
In the private practices that I have worked in previously, I have developed and maintained strong working relationships with GPs, consultants and other relevant clinicians – always striving to create a practice known as a centre of excellence for patient management, diagnosis and rehabilitation that is a primary location for referrals.
I am passionate about learning and teaching, and consider in-house CPD, case discussions and a sharing of knowledge and ideas to be tools that are invaluable to any practice. I think that an environment of teaching which extends to the public through social media, practice webpages, online videos and blogs, among other methods, serves the patient by giving them information on injury prevention and maintenance, and serves the clinic by making it a centre for information and expertise.
As a clinician I do my best to ensure that my patients feel listened to and understood, with a clear understanding of their goals and expectations. I try to educate and involve patients as much as possible in their rehabilitation and construct tailored subjective and objective outcome measures. I believe that hands-off treatment is as important as any hands-on treatment, and that it is essential to consider the neuroimmunological impact on the physiology of an
injury with regard to prognosis.
I would be grateful if you would consider me for the full-time physiotherapy position and I would be delighted to discuss with you any questions you may have.
