Catherine is an extremely professional and knowledgeable Physio. Since I have moved to London, my body has never felt better than it had when it has been under her care. I am a 21 year old football player. I’ve had various injuries and lingering problems with various parts of my body but Catherine’s expertise and practical application of her knowledge has helped me not only heal but excel. Through her work experience and love for her job, she has tackled the issues I have presented her in ways I have never encountered before; challenging me to become a better player and helping my life overall. Catherine is strong and intelligent; a blessing to me while I have been here. I’ve had quite a few physios over my career, and I say unequivocally that Catherine is one of the best I’ve encountered.

Hi, I’m Catherine. I grew up as a competitive dancer which is where I first fell in love with movement and exercise. I was first exposed to Physiotherapy as a teenager when I started to develop pain and clicking with my hips. My physio helped me gain a clear understanding about what was happening with my body and what we needed to do to address it. I felt incredibly empowered to take charge of my injury and go through the rehab process to help return to my goals.

Going on that journey with my rehab and seeing the benefits of combining pilates and strength training with my dance, I really started to flourish and excel as a dancer. It sparked a question about what I wanted to do with myself when I finished school. My mum had made a comment that she thought I would enjoy working as a physio… guess mum really did know best.

I went on to complete my Bachelor degree in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia. Since graduating I have been working exclusively in the musculoskeletal sector. I have loved working with a diverse range of clients including those with musculoskeletal complaints, sports injuries, concussions, post operative rehabilitation, dancers (pre pointe assessments and injury rehabilitation) and clinical pilates.

I have extensive knowledge and understanding of the terminology and technique required to execute dance correctly and safely and this is an area that I take real enjoyment in managing. Being a dancer and a bit of ‘type A personality’ I have always had a keen eye on detail and movement quality which has made a real difference in my ability to assess and manage clients with a vast variety of injuries.

When I am not at work you will find me exploring all the different corners of London. As a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur, I am always trying to find the best flat white, so don’t be surprised if I ask for your recommendations. I love to stay active whether that be doing pilates, running, weight training or hiking.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
I performed as part of the Disneyland parade in Hong Kong when I was 18 years old.
