About Phoebe Giffard
Phoebe radiates positivity and warmth. With patience, extensive knowledge, and a genuine love of her craft, Phoebe seeks to inspire and educate her clients to improve their quality of life and achieve optimal health and wellbeing. She is passionate about providing a tailored approach to each of her clients, and incorporating their experiences, abilities and goals to achieve the best possible outcomes.
As Active’s Surgical Team Leader Phoebe highly values the opportunity to provide a connected physiotherapy experience for women throughout the life span – delivering pre-surgical, in-hospital and post-hospital services for women following gynaecological surgery and breast cancer surgery.
Phoebe has advanced training in the assessment and management of children and adolescents with bladder and bowel problems, and works in our Mars Clinic to support both children and their families to navigate the challenges of these conditions.
One of the highlights of Phoebe’s career is being part of a pilot program that established exercise classes for women with breast cancer. She is also a qualified Pilates instructor.
When not at work, Phoebe likes to spend time outdoors with her family and friends, baking sweet treats, eating delicious food and going for runs with her black Labrador.
