I stumbled upon a course at Barnsley College. This was a unique pilot course designed to build public interest. I use the word UNIQUE because it combined: Anatomy & Physiology, Massage, Exercise & Fitness and Sports Therapy, all together over one full year. As far as I’m aware, up to that point in time, no such course existed in the UK. Yes, you could find courses and workshops on the individual modules/topics but not all together. So I jumped at the opportunity.
Finding this quite daunting, as I didn’t do very well at school, in-fact, I left without any qualifications at all. Plus, I suffered from dyslexia. Having said that, I really relished the challenge. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed the whole course, it was very difficult at times but I’m thrilled to say that I managed to achieve an overall Distinction for my efforts.
- British Professional Athletes (don valley stadium, sheffield)
- Professional Rugby (doncaster RC)
- Professional Football (barnsley FC)
- Professional Dance (leeds, nottingham)
- England Cricket Team
- TV work: Gladiators, Peak practice (consultant)
During this time, I took full advantage of an opportunity to teach Sports Massage & Sports Therapy at various colleges and schools around England. Leading me to close my clinic and take on the distinguished, full-time role as Senior Lecturer and Education Manager for the UK’s leading training provider.
This has been an exciting 15 years of teaching just about every subject within Sports and Exercise Therapy and NLP, that gave me great recognition within the industry. I hope you’ll follow me on my future journey. Thank you for reading.
Update: On november 1st 2017 I opened my new Freedom From Pain Clinic at Bannatyne Health Club – Barnsley.
