Climbing has always been my main passion and I have climbed extensively across Europe and further afield.
Having worked both in the police and as an outdoor instructor and climbing coach in the UK and Spain I re-trained as a physiotherapist at Manchester Metropolitan University. I spent 4 years working for a physiotherapy company in South Manchester/Cheshire and the last 2 years working based in North Manchester but visiting patients at home.
I have been coaching climbing for over 13 yrs, completing the Neil Gresham Masterclass coaching training in 2008 and have continued to keep up to date with developments in the coaching world both through my own studies and through the accredited coaching qualifications now available. I still coach individuals and a competition squad through Process Coaching.
