After years of working in financial services alongside my work as a massage therapist, I decided to take a leap of faith and become a full-time therapist as Project Active!

My real passion is in treating people and allowing them to achieve their fitness goals rather than being sat at a desk all day eating chocolate and staring at spreadsheets.

Having been qualified in Reflexology, Swedish Massage and Sports Massage Therapy for more than 10 years, I went on to complete ‘BTEC level 5 Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy’ as well as attending many advanced-technique courses such as releasing the lower back and hips and understanding/treating neck pain.  This ensures I will identify the underlying causes of your injury and offer more long-term improvements in your physical wellbeing and injury prevention.

My other passion is running and as a qualified Leader in Running Fitness, I help others (groups and individuals like you) into regular activity improving their health and wellbeing.

My biggest achievement to date?  Running the London Marathon in 2015.

But establishing Project Active is set to beat even this so whether you’re recovering from, or looking to prevent a recurrence of an injury or if you need help to achieve your fitness goals, then why not get in touch?

My mission

My aims are simple; to get you back up and running if you’re injured, to keep injuries at bay allowing you to remain active or to reintroduce activity back into your life.
