I've been working to help people with chronic pain management since 2001, initially as part of the Chronic Pain Management Service at Dorset County Hospital and have worked for the community service since its original launch in 2013. I'm a physiotherapist by profession and bring a wealth of experience to my role in order to help people understand more about the complexity of persistent pain, help them improve their relationship with their body and movement, improve their quality of life, develop coping strategies and work towards their goals.
