Welcome to the Markland Clinic
Find out a little more about our journey & meet the incredible team.
Happy professional clinic whereby your care is the central focus of each day
Over the years the clinic has grown and we thought you maybe curious to know a little about how the clinic and team turquoise evolved to why we do what we do.
It all began a few years ago. I was out running when I decided take a leap of faith and create a clinic delivering high quality care for clients and a great working environment for colleagues.
Making the decision was the easy bit…
Many long hours, days and nights followed to make this vision become reality. The team was built up of carefully selected professionals who care about you and are fascinated by how the human body works.
As a team we have created The Markland Clinic, Cirencester and we continue to obsess about making the clinic and the service we provide better each day.
As a client you are special to us because you are the reason that we all began this journey.

Leading UK Physiotherapist
Meet Our Amazing Team
Why they became a Physio: "It's all about people! I love working with new people and using my knowledge to help them. I also believe more emphasis should be placed not just on treatment, but preventive medicine and my role and training allows me to facilitate this."
Best skill: "Probably racket sports, mainly badminton".
Biggest fear: "It has to be sharks not that there are many in the lakes"
Favorite Sandwich: "Melted brie on a multi-seed loaf with some of my nans homemade chutney".
Why they became a Physio: "After fracturing the inside surface of a bone whilst playing moderately high-level football, I received treatment from the club as well as one of our family friends. The massive improvement I saw inspired me to pursue the profession."
Best skill: "At the moment my biggest skill is probably rowing due to the large amount of time I spend training to improve."
Biggest fear: "The unknown! For example, I would be fine picking up any spiders etc. in the UK because I know they aren’t poisonous. However, in Australia I definitely wouldn’t, just in case!"
Favorite sandwich: Chicken Club sandwich from the Milk Shed, a small farm shop near Bicester.
Lead Physiotherapist and Clinic Manager
Why they became a Physio: "I underwent physiotherapy myself and got a basic understanding of how incredible our bodies are, what they are capable of and how important they are for us to enjoy life. Whether it's having the ability to continue your sport or hobby or being able to enjoy your time with your family. I previously worked for the NHS and unfortunately due to the restriction and financial constraints of the NHS, I was unable to offer my clients the full benefits of physiotherapy. So, I decided to join The Markland Clinic where I love being able to keep clients in the best condition possible, to keep them on the tennis court, in running events or give them an opportunity to be pain-free."
Best skill: "I love getting to know people and understand what makes them tick"
Biggest fear: "An irrational fear of spiders – going on an arachnoid course has helped!!!"
Favorite Sandwich: "Cream cheese, smoked salmon and cracked black pepper"
Why chose to work at TMC: "A desire to belong to a team who cares for people and knowing that my actions help clients."
Best skill: "Organisation, humor and having a good chat!"
Biggest fear: "Feathers and heights."
Favorite sandwich: "Tuna melt panini."
Why they became a Physio: "Because when I was 5, my grandmother fell down the stairs, suffered a head injury and sadly passed away. In order to help me and herself my mother treated us with Physical therapy".
Best skill: "Ability to trust others to solve problems"
Biggest fear: "Fear is false expectations appearing real"
Favorite sandwich: "Banana and cream cheese!"
