I am a very experienced, friendly, and approachable musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and Certified APPI Pilates Instructor. I am excited to be launching Thompson Physio & Pilates in 2021 and look forward to welcoming you soon.
After graduating with Honours from UWE, Bristol in 1998 I worked in Dorset for 10 years in the NHS and private settings, whilst studying for a Postgraduate Diploma in Orthopaedic Medicine and acupuncture qualifications.
Our family moved to Jersey following my husband Alan's appointment as a Consultant Anaesthetist at Jersey General Hospital. I also joined the hospital team, working flexibly around my growing family before a return to private practice.
In 2020 I passed the APPI Pilates Instructor Certification exams with 94% - becoming only the second practising physiotherapist on the island to gain this qualification.
Whilst living in the UK I successfully one-day evented my horse in the South of England.
I have represented Great Britain three times at age group Duathlon World Championships (10k run/40k bike/5k run) gaining silver and bronze medals. I gained silver at the British Duathlon Championships.
I have represented Jersey in the Island Games Half Marathon, and won the Jersey Half Marathon.
I also qualified for the UCI Cycling World Championships, following a silver medal at the Tour of Ayrshire.
With my own personal experience of competing at the highest levels of amateur sport, I understand the sporting mentality, and especially the challenges of combining this with a busy family and work life.
Exercise will inevitably form part of your rehab plan with me!
