Sophie Whitehead

Why I love my job?

I love working as part of a team that is so client focussed and dedicated to achieving the client’s goal.  I find it a privilege to be in a position to be able to help someone return to full body movement whilst optimising their function and well being following injury. I enjoy looking at people’s anatomy and movement and manipulating their body’s to improve mobility and prevent risk of injury.

Greatest Motivation

My greatest motivation is knowing that I am helping people, both physically and mentally, to overcome injury and return them to full function, fitness and mobility following injury. I am very driven by results and success of my clients and seeing them achieve their goal of returning to a pain-free state post-injury is something I find very rewarding.

Hobbies and Interests

Gymnastics, Skiing, Watching Sport, Socialising and Brunching!
