SIMON'S APPROACH

My treatment method involves pain education, strength and conditioning and cognitive functional therapy. My motivation lies first in uncovering the contributing causes of your injury and then applying a holistic approach to treating the condition through education, rehabilitation, and empowering you on your journey to recovery and reaching your goals. 

 

I will coach and guide you on how to effectively activate your pain modulatory system so that you can push past the barriers to your recovery. 


Rehabilitation will have a strong emphasis on exercise optimal dosage prescription, a variety of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and knowing natural injury healing timeframes. The bulk of our time will be spent off the therapy table and learning how to promote self healing and self coping strategies to allow you, the patient, to return to your desired activities.

ABOUT SIMON

I  graduated from the National University of Ireland, Galway with a bachelor of science degree in Physiology. I then completed a masters in physiotherapy at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

 

I spent several years working in the UK, honing my skills and treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal, orthopedic and neurological conditions. I also practiced in Ireland, in a musculoskeletal private practice before making my way over to this side of the pond. Since coming to Vancouver, I have worked in various private clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and in the community. I also spent some time working in Surrey, where I was awarded "top 3 rated physio" in 2018 & 2019.

I grew up playing various competitive sports and having been injured various times myself, this led me to my unique approach to a rehabilitation process which incorporates pain science. My background and experience have led me to have a strong understanding around the barriers encountered both as a patient and as a physiotherapist.  

 

I enjoy working with a variety of clients, from athletes to individuals with little exercise experience and everyone in between. No matter your background I will make sure that we are always working towards your goals and are feeling confident and competent so that you can continue to do the things that you love. 



My goal is for everyone I treat to feel heard, safe, empowered and cared for through a tailored approach and a few laughs in every session.  I take great pride in supporting clients through their personal rehabilitation journeys.



When I'm not with my clients, you can find me in the mountains or by the water - I am very fond of all outdoor activities. My motto is “A healthy mind is a healthy body”
