Since graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University, Genevieve has been passionate about improving her patients’ awareness and understanding of their bodies, and adopts a collaborative approach in optimising their recovery journey.  She takes a flexible approach to treatment, ensuring her patients clearly understand the options they have in their rehabilitation and feel supported on their return to achieving their goals.

Genevieve enjoys treating people from a range of different backgrounds with varied injury presentations. She takes a whole-body approach in helping her patients progress towards their goals. She has a wealth of experience working across NHS and private sectors, treating sports injuries, neck and back pain, rehabilitating patients pre- and post-surgery, implementing injury prevention programmes, and more.

Genevieve has a particular interest in the performing arts industry, working with actors and singers to advise on strategies to prevent injury and maintain their physical health whilst performing. This is in conjunction with treatment to support their recovery from injuries and their efficient return to activity. She has worked with various Netflix dance series, Strictly Come Dancing, the West End’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Wicked, War Horse UK Tour, and more.

Continuing with the performance theme, Genevieve has specialist training in vocal physiotherapy for individuals struggling with vocal fatigue, loss of vocal range, or loss of vocal quality. She has worked with singers from a variety of genres, teachers, and public speakers.  She has a network of ear, nose and throat specialists, speech and language therapists, and vocal coaches she liaises closely with to ensure that all patient needs are covered.

She also offers jaw physiotherapy for individuals struggling with pain, tightness, reduced range, and clicking or locking episodes.

Through her work at a performing arts academy, Genevieve has experience of treating adolescents suffering with sport and dance injuries from the age of 12 upwards.

Outside work she has a keen interest in exercise and movement, opting to train herself in a variety of dance styles, occasional boxing, yoga and Pilates.
