Steph completed her Masters in Physiotherapy in 2018 and has been working in the sport, exercise and rehab fields since 2010. Steph has a vast experience working with clients ranging from the critically ill to high end athletes, applying pricipals of training and motivation to help clients achieve their personal goals.
Steph and Liz have worked together in a previous life and have joined forces again to help clients maximise their potential, reduce the chance of injury, return to full fitness from injury and improve their overall performance.
Steph’s other job is as a physiotherapist in a hospital, working collaboratively with both patients and other medical professionals to develop patient experience, help them on the road to recovery and develop high levels of patient care. She is very keen to explore all that physiotherapy has to offer.
Steph is a keen Netball player and currently plays for a local team in Aylesbury. Steph has previously played at University level, achieving promotion with her team in the BUCS league.
Despite what you may think Netball can be quite brutal and as a result, sprains and strains from playing this ‘non-contact’ sport are common place. Therefore Steph has gained plenty of first hand experience in ankle rolls, knee injuries and shoulder Injuries.
This has led Steph onto aiming for her Pitch side qualification so she can help others who get these acute injures pitch side.
When not on the netball court, Steph participates in circuit classes working on strength, speed and agility exercises. Although there is a strong possibility that these classes may now finish in the pub with Liz.
Before joining R&J Healthcare, Steph was working alongside amateur men and women as a Sports Massage Therapist. She completed the VTCT accredited course back in Feb 2017 and has used this qualification to enable clients to optimise their training and recovery, as well as expand her skills, knowledge base and experience.
