starting up Making a positve change Julia Trollip JT Biokinetics – orthopaedic and sports injury rehabilitation, chronic conditions and lifestyle intervention programs 07496068206 Q1: Tell us a bit about your

business? I run a private practice in Tolworth, offering specific treatment for orthopaedic and sports injuries, ranging from frozen shoulder, runners knee to carpal tunnel syndrome. I often treat people with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s or cardiac conditions. As a Biokineticist I focus on the biomechanical aspects of the body and how the joints and soft tissues integrate with and function in relation to each other. This, when coupled with specifically tailored exercises to improve my clients condition, mostly negates their need for medications.

Q2: What gives your business ‘the x-factor’? Firstly, I am passionate about what I do and how I do it. Coupled with this, feedback from my patients is that the sessions I offer are unique and unlike any other form of treatment they have previously had. I pride myself in my approachability, in treating everyone as though they are my only client and I truly wish to see them improve their situation. I work one on one with individuals and treat all injuries and complaints uniquely. There is not a “one size fits all” treatment when it comes to the human body. I always treat each individual and provide them with exercise and remediation unique to themselves, their injuries, capabilities and personal situation.

Q3: What motivated you to set up the business? After graduating, I worked in a private practice with other Biokineticists, some with decades of experience. This allowed me to develop and grow in my field, but it also restricted my individuality. As an independent practitioner, I can give free rein to my determination, attentiveness, and conscientiousness and can now also treat clients in their own homes if need be as well at practice in Tolworth.

Q4: What do you like most about working for a start-up? I am individual, hard working, compassionate and committed to my career! I love the fact that I am now able to put my own ideas into practice and to be creative in order to raise awareness of Biokinetics, my practise and myself as an independent Biokineticist.

Q5: What has been your greatest business success to date? That’s a difficult question to answer as each of my success stories are my favourites. I have many, so it’s hard to choose a particular one. I love to help people and to make positive changes. All the people I have treated to date have enjoyed definite improvements.

Q6: What has been your lowest moment? When I realised I could have chosen a better time of the year to go independent. It was towards the end of July and everyone was getting ready to go away for the summer holidays! It was so quiet that I began to doubt myself and my decision to set up my own practice.

Q7: In terms of business

achievements, where do you want to be within the next 5 years? My vision is to have a busy multidisciplinary practice and be able to employ other Biokineticists with the same energy and passion for the profession.

Q8: What would be your top

tip to someone thinking of starting up their own business? Top tips! There is too much for only one tip! Do your market research. Who? What? Where? When? Ask others in the same field for advice and also learn from their successes and disappointments. Be prepared to be flexible – if it doesn’t work for you, change it. Be determined to succeed. My motto here is: “Decide, commit, succeed”! Stick to this, even on the toughest days, and there WILL be tough days, and things will work out.
