My decision to become a Physiotherapist was driven by a desire to help people reach their health and wellbeing potential. I completed my Physiotherapy Masters at St. George’s University of London, which placed a particular emphasis on holistic patient management and collaborative care.
I enjoy the variety of injuries that we see here at Cranfold. I have a special interest in treating lower limb injuries, especially tendinopathy and biomechanics.
Before completing my Master’s, I gained a First-class degree in Exercise Science at Bournemouth University. Following this I became a Royal Marines Commando and specialised as a Mountain Leader. During this time, I was able to develop many transferable skills to physiotherapy that I use every day.
My personal interests include a passion for endurance sports and the outdoors. I can usually be found training for a marathon, cycling up a mountain/hill, or competing in a Triathlon.
I feel very fortunate to be able to work amongst such a friendly and diverse patient and staff group at Cranfold. My professional values include empathy, education and empowerment and I will endeavor to give everyone the care they deserve.
“After experiencing an excruciating ‘stabbing’ pain in my knee during a weighted lunge, I continued to suffer with extreme ‘after pain’ which made me dread simple activities, such as walking up the stairs or going into the squat position in order to sit down. I was recommended Cranfold Physio and was lucky enough to be assigned Glen for my treatment.
That first session back in May was so thorough – no stone was left unturned – and whilst it was clear that Glen had incredible knowledge, what I loved about him was his ability to not only empathise with my pain but also with my frustrations at not being able to exercise. We talked about where I wanted to be by the end of my physio journey which enabled us to track progress along the way.
I was initially seeing Glen once a week whilst doing prescribed strengthening exercises at home between appointments – these were on a great app where you watch someone do the same exercise in real-time. It was such a fab way of being accountable as it would automatically update Glen to let him know that I’d completed them.
Over the course of the next 5 months my knee was responding well to physio so I started to go longer between appointments. There were a couple of occasions when I experienced a set-back but Glen always reassured me of how far I’d come and then tweaked the exercises accordingly; I would always leave an appointment feeling a lot ‘lighter’ and hopeful I’d make a recovery…which, thanks to his expertise, I did.
I have now returned to all of the sport I was doing before my injury and I am thrilled that I am able to continue my recovery with simple strength exercises at home. Our shared passion for running meant that the little nuggets of information Glen shared with me on the topic have helped me with my performance going forward.
I highly recommend both the practice (where I was always treated impeccably) and of course the amazing Glen. Thank you.”
“I just wanted to thank you for all your help, advice and encouragement. I am delighted with my progress considering that 8 weeks ago it was agony to walk from your car park to your office and now I am back living a normal life and have even returned to Body Pump.
I was particularly impressed with our early consultation where you took time and interest to fully understand my problem and then devised a progressive program to target and eliminate the cause by strengthening and training the surrounding areas.
I intend to build the exercises into my everyday life to try and avoid a reoccurrence of the problem. If I ever need help or advice again I won’t hesitate to contact you.”
“I first visited Glen 12 weeks ago when I was in severe pain and could hardly walk.
He quickly diagnosed an inflamed disc and put together an exercise program to reduce the inflammation and gradually strengthen my back.
Glen has proved to be extremely knowledgeable, understanding and supportive throughout my treatment and made me feel I was in very capable hands. I am now back to near normal and been discharged with a long term exercise plan which I will happily build into my daily routine. No hesitation in contacting Glen should I encounter any future problems.
Thank you very much!”
