Man at his Desk

A new meaning to work-life balance

One of the most important questions I ask a patient is what does your job involve? I'm not interested in your job title I'm interested in what your body is doing for the average 8 hours a day 5 days a week. This will often not only predict what type of problem you may be suffering from but give me a massive insight into what may be influencing it. The things we can avoid, modify or the things that we can't! Even when your problem seemingly has nothing to do with work our treatment plan has to consider that significant chunk of your life. If your working activities are directly impacting your symptoms I will work with you offering solutions to help modify things.

I have historically been part of a team responsible for delivering occupational health support to some of the North East's largest employers. This required many approaches and saw the team win awards for it's innovative ergonomic and workstation education program. Setting up somebody's workstation (DSE Assessment) is only the nuts and bolts of the situation and is easily reviewed online. To really make an impact I believe the person has to understand the 'why' and be able to reproduce that environment in a variety of settings. Workstation assessments can be delivered online, in the office or for home workers.


I have worked with companies to deliver bespoke training for their teams needs, redesign areas to improve employee ergonomics and individual return to work assessments following extended periods of absence in both industry and office environments. I have delivered vehicle assessments on  non-standard vehicles such as road sweepers and even an online assessment of a ford transit van!

I work with a local supplier when neccessary to provide ergonomic seating and office equipment as part of this service - details available on request.
