about me

KHPhysiotherapy is owned and run by me….Kerstine.

I qualified as a sports injury and rehabilitation therapist in 2009 after studying for 2 years at The Midlands School of Massage in Nottingham. Prior to this I was a serving Fire Fighter with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. I continued on to train as a physiotherapist at the University of Nottingham after working for the NHS in a busy, local community NeuroRehabilitation team. After working within a local respiratory team and for a private company dealing with mainly whiplash patients I realised I wanted to offer my patients a much more personalised, hands on experience so I set up KHPhysiotherapy.

My goals for every patient are to provide them with a comfortable, welcoming environment and give them the support, education and advice for them to be able to take ownership of their condition and move forwards along their road to recovery. Setting up my business in my community means I can support local people and hopefully continue to develop links between local GPs, groups and businesses. This year in addition to providing physiotherapy services, I also hope to see the seated exercise group take off, to bring the running workshops and couch to 5k course to the James Street clinic (see the Other Services Tab for more details) and to grow the business into something that I can be proud of.

Personally I like to keep fit and active and am a regular visitor to Kimberley Leisure Centre  .  I’ve been super busy at running events such as the Liverpool Half Marathon ,   the Hathersage Hurtle, the epic 2 day ultra event on Arran and my 2nd finish of the even more epic West Highland Way Race. In between, I’ve reached my 50th Park Run, travelled from Hope to Kimberley on foot, run in Southend, Northumberland, Wales and been super proud to run with my daughter on her first park run at Beeston.


I’m currently working towards my level 4 Strength & Conditioning qualification and I continue to be an active member of my local running club the Kimberley & District Striders.

This June I finshed my second West Highland Way race, knocking a massive 3 hours of last years time. The weather was kinder this year and I had a chance to actually enjoy the event. It was made even more special by the fact that my best friend had started running in February this year and was able to support me for some of the sections. As ever my support crew were amazing and my OH really got me through the last section as the tiredness kicked in. I'm so proud of myself and my team but I think I'm done with the race now. I have other goals to achieve so unward and upward and let the planning commence.
