Meet The Team
Our team pride themselves on bringing you specialist care bespoke to your needs.
As the Director of Foundations Physio I love the variety in my role and I am lucky enough to work with a highly skilled and lovely team. I am very attached to my clinical time and love working with people to achieve things they never thought possible. I promote a flexible approach to most problems and feel there isn’t much that can’t be solved with an open and honest conversation (and a cup of tea)!
Hi! I’m Charlie and I love my role within the Foundations family. I am extremely organised and love speaking with people. Even though I am not clinical, I will always do my best to go above and beyond to help people and be a listening ear for anyone that needs it whether that be over a coffee or a large G&T!
As a Neurophysio I have been lucky enough to work throughout all stages of the rehabilitation pathway, finding a great deal of satisfaction supporting People to return to their usual life at home. Working for Foundations Physio has enabled me to work with people to problem solve with more freedom any issues they may have. While enjoying working with all neurological conditions, I have a specific interest in GBS and stroke.
I am passionate about empowering people through rehabilitation to achieve their goals and regain independence. I believe that rehabilitation is a journey and my role within Foundations Physio allows me to support patients in their journey and make it both positive and enjoyable. I utilise a range of therapy approaches and seeing the benefits of hard work, determination and adaptability when patients achieve their goals is so rewarding and one of the many reasons I love my job!
I worked as a qualified nurse for over 25years, the majority of the time in care of the elderly. More recently I had a career change and worked as an Activities assistant again within the care home setting. Now I am really pleased to work alongside Foundation physios as a physio assistant, helping with PD exercise classes and in care homes. They are a wonderful team to work with and I feel my nursing background enables me to fulfil my role.
One of the reasons why I love being a physiotherapist is that I am able to impact someone’s life in a positive way. Watching patients achieve their goals is so rewarding and being able to support patients through their rehabilitation journey is a delight. I enjoy that every day is a learning opportunity and no two days are the same! I am lucky to be a part of such a hardworking and inspiring team at Foundations Physio.
I have worked for Foundations Physio for 3 years as a Senior Neurological Physiotherapist. During this time, I have had the pleasure of working alongside clients and their families who are lovely, hardworking, and driven to be the best versions of themselves. This has inspired me daily to challenge myself and constantly develop clinically. I also pride myself on building positive and collaborative relationships with clients and colleagues, to educate, empower and develop self-confidence. I work alongside passionate, hardworking and creative colleagues and feel proud to be part of such an incredible team.
Being part of the Foundations Physio team has given me the opportunity to grow and develop my knowledge and skills in a specialist neuro field. I love having a personal touch to my practice and strongly believe that there is a direct link between effort and reward. I am so fortunate to be working alongside such a friendly and hardworking team and am very grateful for their support and expertise when I need it!
As a Physiotherapist, I take great pride and joy in being able to support people during their rehabilitation journey. Whether you are post-stroke, with a long-standing neuro-diagnosis or had a long stay in hospital, I love finding out what makes each person unique and adapting my skills to fit their rehab needs. The most rewarding part of my role is understanding what my patients wish to achieve, working together using a holistic approach and empowering them to reach their goals. I find the flexible and friendly approach at Foundations Physio allows me to do just that, and I love being a part of the team!
I graduated with a BSC Sports degree from Southampton University and have worked within the health and fitness Industry since! I have gained a lot of experience working as an Exercise Class Instructor, Personal Trainer, PE Teacher and for 4 years have put these skills into working in the NHS with a variety of different patients with all different needs. I really enjoy working with all different types of people, helping them set realistic goals and assisting on their journey to achieve them. I have always been keen on all types of sports and keeping myself healthy and love being able to share that passion with patients as well.
My role within Foundations is on the admin side which I really enjoy as I love to be both organised and have the chance to support patients albeit at a non clinical level. I am passionate about helping people in any way I can. I feel very fortunate to be working with a team of like minded people.
