Meet our highly qualified, highly experienced health professionals:
Only thirteen years after graduating, and having accumulated an impressive set of skills and experience, Gerard Guillen decided to establish his own physiotherapy clinic, Focus Health, in 1996 with his friends and colleagues Gay Monteith and Colin Tutchen.
Like with everything he does, Gerard invests great care in his practice and, beside his incredible competence, is famous for his sense of humour and irresistible charm.
As Focus Health's ergonomics specialist, Gerard has helped many businesses significantly reduce their workplace injury rate. Gerard Guillen teaches pilates and is a Certified Mulligan practitioner.
In October 2016, Gerard stepped back from his role as a Director but remains just as involved with Focus Health as a practitioner.
