Meet our team
Sophie Peachey - Director
I graduated from St.Thomas' Hospital in 1990 and have since worked extensively in the NHS and private sector. I believe in an integrated 'hands on' approach to physiotherapy treatment with a keen emphasis on posture, muscle imbalance and personalised exercise programmes. I have completed postgraduate training in acupuncture and may use this as part of my treatment to enhance pain relief. I am a member of the AACP. I have wide experience in treating both spinal problems and other joint issues, including sports injuries. My overall aim is to reduce your pain and restore function so that you can fully enjoy your hobbies and sport.
Diane Watkins - Director
I graduated from St.Thomas' Hospital in 1982 and worked for 8 years in the NHS before working overseas in Australia, the Middle East and the USA. I worked for 2 years in industry and have worked in the private sector since 1993. I have been a member of the team here since 2001 and a partner since 2003. I have gained postgraduate diplomas in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and acupuncture and am a member of the AACP and MACP. I have a very hands on approach to treating all muscle and joint problems. I will use a combination of therapies to help improve pain relief and overall to restore full function to the body.
I graduated in 2004 from the University of East London. I have always been interested in musculoskeletal physiotherapy since before starting my training. Helping patients achieve their individual goals is extremely satisfying, and using a combination of treatments such as joint mobilisations, soft tissue release, acupuncture, electrotherapy and exercises is a good way to achieve this. I also believe that explanation of the problem and treatment is fundamental in achieving these goals. Since qualifying, I have worked in the NHS on a full time basis, and I have worked at Farnham since 2009 as an associate on a part time basis. Outside of work I enjoy hiking, cycling and golf.
Lindsay Pringle B.Sc., M.Sc., MCSP
I graduated with a B.Sc. in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Aberystwyth, followed by an M.Sc. in Physiotherapy at the University of Southampton. I qualified with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, working within the NHS and also privately. Additionally I have qualified in Sports Massage Therapy and Pilates. This experience has led me to have a keen interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. In 2012 I joined Farnham Physiotherapy and Sports Injury clinic.
Outside of physiotherapy I have worked with a local rugby team and I enjoy skiing, netball and Pilates.
I graduated from King's college, London in 1989 and have since worked in both the NHS and private practice.
I live in Farnham with my husband and 3 children.
I have always been interested in how we move and in recent years I have become very interested in running- perhaps sparked by my childrens' natural athletic abilities, my own enjoyment of exercise and the fact that we do see a lot of local runners in the practice. I believe that a holistic approach and good communication skills are really important and that physiotherapy can enable people to move freely and fluently, improving sports performance and enjoyment.

I am a mum of two children living in Farnham. I have been a qualified physiotherapist for 10 years, having graduated from Kings College London. I chose to specialise in the field of paediatrics eight years ago and in doing so, have achieved a great sense of reward and work-life balance in an area that I am very passionate about. (I see patient’s late afternoon/evening on Tuesdays at the Farnham Clinic).
I graduated in 2007 from Coventry University and initially combined working for the NHS in the Farnham/Guildford/Waverley area and working for a Premier League football team. After leaving the NHS in 2010 I have been working for the MOD treating soldiers during their initial army training and combine this with continuing work within professional sport, Elite level youth Netball and private practice at Farnham Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic.
As you may have guessed by my career history, I have a special interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation.
