I am passionate about my chosen profession, Physiotherapy.
Coming from a medical family I have always been interested in the human body and how it works. Sporting and outdoor activities are a significant part of my life, including tennis, hockey, swimming, cycling and golf. I am also an avid spectator of rugby and cricket.
In 2003 I enrolled at UCT for Physiotherapy and that’s when I fell in love with Cape Town and all it has to offer.
I completed my Community Service in 2008 in Durban and then headed off to the UK to broaden my experience. I spent a year working in various NHS hospitals in London and then moved into private practice there for 2.5 years where I focused on Musculoskeletal injuries and Orthopaedics.
On returning to South Africa in 2012, I completed my OMT Course (Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy) and worked in Sea Point and Constantia practices, again dealing with Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic patients. At this time, I also completed training in Aqua-therapy and started working with patients in the pool. I soon appreciated how the benefits of Aqua-therapy compliment hands-on physiotherapy, in areas of strengthening, co-ordination and balance.
In 2013 Angela and I opened Alphen House. It had always been my goal to open my own practice one day, and to do this with a colleague and good friend has been a great experience.
We offer Physiotherapy, Aqua-therapy and Pilates.
