Our Story

My Story

I trained as a physiotherapist in the UK and went on to gain my New Zealand physiotherapy registration. When I came to sorting out my New Zealand physio registration I found there was little information online about how to actually successfully go through the process and few people wanted to offer any info on what they had done to complete the process. So I decided to put together an of all the information and processes that I went through (including what not to do!) in order to help other UK trained physio's going through the New Zealand registration process. I have had lots of positive feedback about the book and I hope you find it helpful too, you can purchase it here.

After successfully gaining my New Zealand registration I then went on to gain my Australian physio registration and have been living and working as a physiotherapist in Australia for over 5 years. I also have an which can help guide you through the NZ to Australian physio registration process.
