Director and Clinical Lead Physiotherapist
Simon trained at Brunel University in West London. Since then, he has gained extensive experience in numerous settings and locations from NHS clinics in Surrey to private clinics in Tower Bridge, Ealing and Harley Street.
In 2013, he founded Physio and Pilates Central (formerly Physiotherapy Central). After establishing a clinic in Richmond, the next step was to open the flagship clinic in Wimbledon, which he and Suzanne opened in 2016. The focus is to ensure the highest quality of care and be a renowned centre of excellence for the provision of physiotherapy and Pilates.
Clinically, Simon has worked with athletes in a variety of sports including rugby, jiu-jitsu, weightlifting and football, as well as more casual exercisers and fun-runners.
Simon is extremely passionate about sport and knows as well as anyone the frustration of enforced time off due to injury. His sporting interests include triathlon, rugby, football, skiing and trail running (amongst others), although these days he spends most of his time on a bike or snowboard.
His experience in these sports ensures that he has an excellent understanding of the specific demands of each, and is subsequently able to provide a superb level of treatment and rehabilitation to minimise time out of sport and to reduce the risk of injury recurrence.
As well as sports injuries, Simon has a particular interest in back and neck pain, and the numerous structures and factors that contribute to problems in these areas.
He always ensures that you have a good understanding of the underlying cause of your condition, thus enabling you to do little things to help yourself in addition to the treatment provided.
From an early age Gosia had a passion for sports. Her first professional discipline was table tennis, in which she participated competitively for many years. After finishing university, she then moved on to teaching others different types of fitness classes.
She discovered Pilates after a knee injury in 2011 and she fell in love with it straight after she took her first class. She decided to follow her new passion and acquired her Pilates teaching qualifications stage I and II in Poland and started teaching in UK after moving here in 2012. Gosia believes that one should never stop learning, which is why she continued her study and transitioned into Body Control Pilates teacher in UK. She also attends many workshops to keep up to date with all the latest news and research.
“For me Pilates is a way of life and I strongly believe it can change lives. The aim in my classes is to show people how to regain the full body health we were born with by teaching them how to move properly – from the centre – using all the muscles that should be used for a particular movement, mobilising all the joints and in doing so, building from the foundations a strong, healthy, flexible body that is free from tension and pain.”
