Since finishing her Masters she has worked within South West London as well as working with elite golfers on the European PGA tour.
Sue has a tireless passion for helping people and guiding them through their journey of recovery. She has vast experience in treating a wide array of injuries and focuses on treating the cause of the injury rather than just the symptoms. This approach facilitates a speedy recovery for return to pain-free activity (whether that be in high level sports or basic daily living) but also allows Sue to address underlying physical limitations once and for all!
Sue believes it is essential to have a good relationship with all members of a patient’s rehabilitation team and has developed great relationships with an extensive network of consultants, local GPs, massage therapists, and personal trainers. Sue is passionate about sport, health and fitness.

Amelia started at here at Beyond Health the day the doors flung open and has loved watching the business and the community around us evolve. Amelia feels she has gained an enormous amount having set up the ‘behind the scenes’ of Beyond Health and prior to this, a private clinic that practices integrated medicine. But the aspect of her job that resonates the most strongly is the relationship she has with her colleagues and the Beyond Health clients.
When Amelia is not at work she revels in her family life, relishes trips to the theatre and is enjoying falling more deeply in love with London (though she would never say refuse a swim followed by a coffee at her once-local Sydney beaches!).
