I have grown up in a sporting environment since the age of 6. I have always had an amazing support system of Therapists helping me with injuries, recovery and preparing for events; especially once I started competing on the national and international stage in the long jump. I personally know the impact it has on peoples lives and I want to help my clients experience that.
It is truly rewarding to see clients reach the goals, they thought they wouldn’t achieve due to pain or discomfort. Helping them become their best self, gives me great satisfaction. I really enjoy treating a variety of people from all walks of life and get excited to meet new clients and help them on their journey.

I have a passion for sport as its been part of my life since a young age. I enjoy training and competing in the long jump, seeing small improvements in training that eventually reflect in competition. In my time off, I also love to travel, exploring waterfalls and going on walks in different parts of the country as well as going abroad for some much-needed sun.
In 2016, Eleanor competed in the Long Jump at the European Youth Athletics Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia.
