WHAT TO EXPECT

MEET THE TEAM

Gail McArdle Registered Physiotherapist

I trained in the UK, graduating from physio school in a specialist orthopaedic hospital in 1993 and have undertaken extensive post-grad training in many physiotherapy and rehabilitation techniques.

No two patients are the same; my training and 3 decades of experience have given me a set of skills to apply to any situation and as a result, I am able to help the vast majority of patients I see. If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can!

Our bodies have an amazing capacity to self-heal – I see my role as providing optimal conditions for that to take place, through exercise, hands-on treatments, acupuncture or intramuscular stimulation (IMS), as well as moral support and encouragement for the journey back to optimal health and fitness.

My aim is to help you to reach for your goals and be better than you were before.

I moved to Vernon in 2012 and am thoroughly enjoying life in the beautiful Okanagan. I have met and worked with many amazing people and genuinely believe that we live in a very special place where health and wellness takes the priority it deserves.

Andrew Koppejan Registered Physiotherapist

After completing my Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 2008 from the University of Alberta, I pursued several postgraduate courses and certifications, including Certifications  in GunnIMS (intramuscular stimulation) and Medical Acupuncture, as well as numerous courses in movement system diagnosis, running injury prevention, shoulder rehabilitation and sleep health.

 

My goal is to help unlock whatever is holding you back from doing what you love.

I have been a practicing physiotherapist for over 13 years and bring a unique skill set and perspective to movement-based problems.  Patients appreciate my thorough evaluation, clarifying education and fast-acting treatments. 

 

I also offer sleep coaching for those in pain. Insomnia is a common problem for many people living with persistent pain – whether from chronic pain, concussion or a car accident. I combine research-backed sleep coaching with pain science education to deliver a unique approach to helping you achieve restorative sleep.

Kelly-Ann Scott Registered Professional Counsellor

I am a Registered Professional Counsellor, providing help with a wide range of issues, including life transitions, anxiety, depression, 2SLGBTQAI+, chronic pain and illnesses, among others.

 

After many years of working in healthcare and education in the UK, the Netherlands and Canada, I realized that I wanted to help others more directly. I wanted to create a safe, understanding, caring, non-judgemental space for people to share their mental health journey with me.

 

Struggles are real and so is hope!

What works for one doesn’t work for all!

I take into account you as an individual and your circumstances. I use elements of different approaches to help you explore and cope with your problems.

This helps us develop a plan together for reaching your goals, that benefits you and is unique to your situation.

I will work with you to find the best way that works for you!
