Kate Parsonage, MCSP

Senior Physiotherapist

Kate graduated from Bradford University in 1998 with a Second Class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy. Having spent over ten years within the NHS, specialising in musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, Kate has an in-depth understanding of medical and neurological conditions, and is therefore confident when treating clients with pre-existing and chronic problems.

Kate joined PEAK in January 2009 where she works full-time as a Specialist MSK Physiotherapist. Post-graduate courses have included manual therapy, McKenzie techniques, kinetic control/muscle imbalance and the management of chronic pain conditions. Kate is also one of our qualified ante/post-natal therapists, dealing with musculoskeletal problems arising from pregnancy and labour. In 2016, Kate completed her acupuncture training and she really enjoys this addition to her clinical practice, getting great results with her clients.

Kate is a keen runner who completed the London Marathon in 2009, and as such has a special interest in sports/running-related injuries.

Outside of work, when she isn't pounding the streets in her running shoes, Kate loves to spend time with her family, and she tells us that she is an avid member of a book club – though we recently found out that this involves more eating cake and drinking tea than discussing the contents of a book!

Jeni Rhodes, MCSP

Jeni graduated from Bradford University in 2001 with a Second Class Honours degree in Physiotherapy.  She had previously completed a degree in Physiology from Newcastle University.

Jeni worked for almost 10 years in the NHS at Leeds General Infirmary and Dewsbury District Hospital, specialising in musculoskeletal disorders with specific interests in Women’s Health and the management of chronic pain.

Jo Young, MCSP

Senior Physiotherapist

Jo graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2008, with an MSc in Physiotherapy. Following her qualification, Jo began her career at Bradford NHS Teaching Hospitals where she treated patients diagnosed with a range of different conditions, including those with respiratory, neurological, orthopaedic, and musculoskeletal (MSK) problems. Over the last 10 years, Jo has specialised in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation. Throughout her time in the NHS, she gained experience in post-operative, chronic and acute injuries, working alongside specialists within hand, shoulder, lower limb, and spinal teams.

More recently, Jo has worked with several private companies delivering workplace-based assessment and treatment services to facilitate return to work for employees with MSK issues. She has attended several post-graduate ACPOHE training courses on assessing fitness for work and vehicle/workplace ergonomics, broadening her knowledge and skills within this area of practice.

Jo has completed the APPI Matwork 1 and 2 Pilates courses and has recently enjoyed delivering client-focused small group classes for clients requiring rehabilitation from injury, as well as those simply wanting to improve fitness and strength in a safe environment with a qualified instructor.

Over the last 4 years, Jo has worked as a First Contact Practitioner (FCP) within the Leeds, North Kirklees, and Bradford areas. Within this newly emerging role aimed at streamlining MSK services, Jo has developed skills in assessing patients within GP surgeries prior to GP contact, contributing her knowledge and skills to make clinical decisions on the most suitable management for individual patients. Alongside this role, she is currently working towards the Higher Education England ‘FCP Roadmap to Practice’ and an MSc module in MSK Injection Therapy to further her skills within Advanced Practice.

Outside of work, Jo is a regular gym goer and enjoys practicing Pilates at home. Other interests are centred around her family and two children, where she enjoys supporting (and, when feeling enthusiastic, jogging) Junior Park Run, as well as being the usual taxi service for what seems to be an ever-increasing array of sporting and musical pursuits!

Jo joined the PEAK team in early 2021, where she has continued to apply her knowledge and skills, providing a client-focused approach to those with a range of different MSK problems. She is based predominantly within our Garforth clinic but does also provide some domiciliary appointments in the local area.

Stella Stein, MCSP

Senior Physiotherapist

Stella graduated as a Physiotherapist from Hochschule Fresenius in Germany in 2011. During her time at University, she completed two Polestar Pilates courses and her Dissertation research focused on whether pelvic floor dysfunction can be effectively treated with Pilates. After graduating, Stella worked as a Physiotherapist in Germany until 2014 where she specialised in manual therapy and oedema treatment (manual lymphatic drainage).

Stella then relocated to the UK, where she commenced an MSc in Sports Therapy in September 2014 at Leeds Beckett University, shortly after moving to Leeds. She graduated with a distinction in September 2015. This programme expanded her knowledge of the treatment of sports injuries and rehabilitation, and she offers evidence-based and holistic approaches to the assessment and treatment of all musculoskeletal disorders.

Not content to rest on her laurels for long, Stella completed further exams in April 2016 in Germany. This completed an additional qualification as a Manual Therapist, which has further developed her practical skills. A main focus of the course was the link between visceral (organ) problems and musculoskeletal symptoms, which she feels has enhanced her approach to assessment and treatment. She also completed a course in November 2016 specialising in Ante and Post-Natal Pilates, which further supports her work with PGP (pelvic girdle pain) and pregnancy-related issues.

Outside of work, Stella enjoys yoga, baking and travelling. She loves being outdoors and has spent many happy holidays in a campervan!

Upon her return to the UK, she joined the team at PEAK Physiotherapy, where she worked for several years, before taking on a Clinical Lead role in the Physiotherapy Department at Spire Leeds Hospital, where she worked until 2016.

Anthony Smith

Sports Massage Therapist and Physiotherapy Assistant

Anthony graduated in May 2020 with First Class Honours having completed a 3-year degree in Sports and Exercise Therapy at Leeds Beckett University. The degree course covered a wide array of topics and placed a heavy emphasis on musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Areas that Anthony has covered during his time at University include musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation, biomechanics, and manual therapy techniques. He also had the opportunity to gain valuable experience working with the Bradford City Football first team, Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby, and treating patients at the University Injury and Massage Clinic.

Through his studies and work experience, Anthony has developed a great understanding of when to utilise specific massage techniques, which enables him to personalise his treatments to ensure that each individual client receives the best possible service. Anthony accrued more than 200 hours at University working hands-on with patients in clinical settings. He also returned to University in January 2021, to start a 2-year MSc degree in Physiotherapy, which will undoubtedly add to his core base of knowledge and further expand his skillset.

Anthony has been passionate about health and fitness since his early teens, and he appreciates that the benefits that exercise offers for mental health are just as important as the physical effects. He is looking to run the London Marathon in 2021 (no pressure!). He also enjoys going to music festivals during the summer, playing football and meeting new people.
