Mrs Andrea Collins

Physiotherapist

I do have a special interest in women's health, however, I do enjoy managing a combination of conditions to keep all areas of my interests active. I have completed a men's health course however I lack experience in this field. I am a competent, caring and passionate outpatient-based physiotherapist with 13 years of experience in the field. Having balanced my managerial duties alongside my clinical role, I have a strong work ethic and have developed the ability to meet deadlines, prioritise and problem solve while maintaining high standards. With a strong background in OMT, pelvic health and chronic pain, I am able to communicate, assess and manage my patients holistically. I am able to work well independently but I thrive in a team as I appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge and learn from others. I enjoy a challenge and am always keen to learn and develop my knowledge and skill set. Interests outside of Work In my free time, my family and I enjoy hiking, camping and exploring. When I am able to, I love roller skating along the beach and have every aspiration of connecting with a Roller Derby team in New Zealand, as I have in South Africa. Socially, I am a fun-loving person who loves to meet new people, to laugh and to try new things. View details »
