‘If you love your job you never work a day’ as said by Mark Twain apparently. That is the fortunate position Brendan finds himself in, this helps him to strive to maintain his work:life balance he feels is one of the key factors in succeeding in good health. Realising he wasn’t to be the next David Beckham helped him focus on pursuing a life in healthcare and medicine. A degree funded by the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) opened the pathway to enter the NHS and the excellent foundations there gave him the experience and drive to help people further and start work in the private sector. 

As the founder of BJA Physiotherapy in 2006, he now describes himself in the player manager role of the business. In charge of a business that is thriving whilst ensuring he still is managing a demanding and rewarding caseload is what he loves doing in his work life.

Closely linked to his work are his other passions in life: Family - Three fantastic children and his wife Katie is fellow company director, without whom he admits he would be lost! Lots of dog walking, watching sports, coaching junior football and now retired from playing football, he is playing golf when time allows!

Having qualified in 2008, I first started working as a physiotherapy assistant at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation trust, prior to securing a physiotherapy post. I completed 18 months experiencing different physiotherapy rotations, such as inpatients and community, before specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I work closely with numerous upper limb, lower limb and spinal specialists, building upon my skills, knowledge and management of a variety conditions.

I have also worked for a local national level rugby club for 5 seasons and have worked in private practice for over four years.  I have most recently completed a Masters in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and strive to publish this piece of work.

Away from work I enjoy exercise and running, although I’m not sure I’m very good at it, and spending time with my husband, family and friends.  I also have a little dog called Darcy, who keeps me out and about in all weathers, although she doesn’t like the rain much either!

An indispensable part of the team!

Practice Manager = accountant, secretary, receptionist, cleaner, cook, drinks maker, designer, the list could go on. As with all business owners you wear many hats and Katie suits them all!!

Previous work in Nursery Nursing and management, followed by beauty therapy employment helps with the demands of private practice. Loves helping people and always willing to assist any enquiries. When not at the clinic enjoys the simple family life, the demands of a husband and teenage children and now extended by the addition of a second dog!

I qualified with a BSc in Physiotherapy in 2016. After qualifying I began my career at Huddersfield and Calderdale NHS Trust, where I completed my rotations before specialising in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. In 2018, I took on a senior post at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Trust and I started to work part-time at BJA Physiotherapy. In April 2021, I accepted a full-time post working alongside Brendan at BJA Physiotherapy.

Since qualifying, I have undertaken further training and I am fully qualified to teach Pilates and Yoga. I am also fully qualified in Acupuncture.

Outside of work I’m a keen yogi (I’m usually found balancing upside down!!) and I also try to keep fit with spinning and (very occasionally) running.

Meet the lovely Michelle. Michelle has been with us for the last 2 years and is the first face you see when entering the clinic. She works tirelessly on reception booking all of your appointments, keeping the clinic clean and tidy and is always on hand to make sure your visit is welcoming and seamless.

In her free time Michelle loves keeping fit; going to the gym, practicing yoga and walking her lovely dog Pippa.

I moved from Ireland to the bright lights of Huddersfield in order to complete my physiotherapy degree in 2005. I stuck around having met my husband and starting a family over here. In 2015, I completed my masters degree in Advanced Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Practice and I have since published a research article in The International Rehabilitation Journal.  I’ve been happily working with the team at BJA Physiotherapy since 2013 and currently split my time between here and working for the NHS.

I spend a lot of my free time with various friendship groups and extended family. Though with two young children, free time is a rare commodity!

I qualified with a BSC in Physiotherapy in 2017 and started work within the NHS soon after. I completed my rotations within the NHS and then specialised in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. I’ve been with the BJA team since 2019 and currently split my time between here and a senior role with South West Yorkshire NHS Trust.

In my spare time I enjoy running, climbing mountains and being outdoors.
