Gill graduated with high distinction in her Masters Degree of Physiotherapy from Queen Margaret University, Scotland.
In practicing physiotherapy, she draws on a lifetime of sporting experience with a Health and Performance Science Degree, and an international youth sailing and coaching background. Gill’s postgraduate experience includes training in dry needling, SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment), and DMA clinical pilates. She shares our passion for helping jaw and face pain sufferers and is focusing her career in this area to further her expertise. As a valued team member of Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre, Gill is certified in the Goralsky Craniomandibular Method (GCMM) and has enjoyed significant training and ongoing mentoring with Darron Goralsky, our clinical director and practice principal.
To further cultivate her expertise in this area and complement her understanding of the stress and anxiety associated with jaw and facial pain, Gill is pursuing a degree in psychotherapy.
As a multi-faceted practitioner, Gill utilises her patient-centred and integrative approach to enable patients to self-manage and reduce stress, thereby enhancing their recovery. She regularly attends courses and conferences to keep current with new advances in the treatment of Jaw and Face pain conditions and will be attending the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) International Symposium in March 2020 in Sydney.
