Hi, I am Darren and I’ve been a Physio for longer than I care to remember. I am also the proud owner and Practice Principal of the Vanbrugh Physiotherapy Clinic.
I have the privilege of leading a fantastic team of Physios and Massage Therapists at both our Greenwich & City Clinics supported by our amazing Clinic admin team whom without, the whole place might just fall apart.
Physio was always my passion, from a very young age. Growing up in Australia, I was surrounded by sport and activity. My entire family played competitive sport and I was a competitive swimmer and gymnast (and a very bad Aussie Rule’s footballer). As a result, I was exposed to all manner of sporting and other injuries resulting in multiple trips to the local physio.
I remember being fascinated with how physiotherapy could help fix these problems so we could return to our sports and leisure activities. I suppose there was also a real underlying drive to want to be able to help people.
Physiotherapy is such an amazing profession, and I’m proud of what we do here at Vanbrugh. We always strive to provide the best evidence-based therapies, being innovative and forward thinking and always at the very heart of what we do is the deep desire to help our patients achieve and even surpass their treatment goals. It’s a great reason to get out of bed every day.
Here at Vanbrugh we feel that one of the most important attributes of a great physio is the ability to listen – listening to truly understand the patient’s problem and their underlying drive for seeking help – this helps us to connect with the patient at a deeper level and provide a much better solution to their problems.
I’m also a Certified ConnectTherapy™ Practitioner – we use a whole person approach to identify the true drivers for a person’s problem. We‘re able to get to the bottom of very long-term problems that no one else has been able to. I was fortunate enough to be in the inaugural certification group in 2015, and form part of a worldwide network of clinical specialists in this field.
When I was 16, I spent a year as a Rotary Exchange Student in Denmark. More than 30 years on, I am still very close to my family and friends there and can speak Danish relatively fluently.
