Helen graduated in 2009 from Queen Margaret’s University in Edinburgh and has since worked, briefly for the NHS, however mostly in Private Practice. Her travels have taken her to work in Bangladesh, Singapore, and London and now back home to Northern Ireland.
In Dhaka, Helen helped to develop a sports program for wheelchair athletes at The Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed. She then hotfooted it off to Singapore to work for 3 years in Private Practice. During this period she developed her manual therapy skills, enjoyed the highs of an expat lifestyle and competing in some very tropical triathlons.
Helen’s next move was to London to join the highly successful and trailblazing Six Physio Clinic, where she built up a loyal caseload of patients. The competitive City of London environment meant high quality physiotherapy and delivering excellent results. It was here that Helen furthered her training in Clinical Pilates and began to specialise in cycling related injuries.
Sport has always been important to Helen and she has just about dabbled in them all – this has helped feed her biomechanical mind for a huge variety of sports injuries particularly with cycling. Helen’s own experience on the bike has taken her touring around Italy and Norway but also endless triathlon training closer to home. This love of cycling has tied nicely in with her work as she will perform a cycle specific assessment – this means your rehab will be specific to your needs on the bike and aim to prevent re-injury.
Helen loves nothing more than making people feel and move better. Along with the cycling she has a particular interest in the manual treatment and rehabilitation of people with back pain, knee pain and shoulder pain. Treatment is of course not limited to these areas and don’t be surprised if you find her treating well away from where the pain is.
When Helen’s not working she is experimenting in the kitchen, keeping active outdoors or planning the next travel adventure.
