Get to know your therapist – Sue Mei
About Sue Mei
Most people would describe me as an easy going, easily contented and perpetually excited person. My friends and colleagues would know that I am always happy and on a excited and high mode. I don’t really like exercising but I have to to keep myself fit. The one sport i really like is yoga, I go to yoga lessons at least 2-3 times a week but I am terrible at it because I am an extremely stiff person. I am an extroverted person and I like hanging out with lots of people. I agree that the more the merrier, but I also enjoy personal one to one sessions listening to friends and elders telling stories and life experiences. I am a strong believer in spending quality time with family. I am very close to my family, and I personally believe that it should be easy to say sorry, thank you , please and I love you to the people closest to you.
What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?
After I finished school and was deciding on my next step of life, I was extremely lost about what I wanted to do. I sat down with my dad and we went by the elimination system to decide on physiotherapy. I knew that I loved helping people, was good at biology and the human anatomy. We also knew that I don’t like to read too much and prefer pictorial explanations instead.
It came down to 3 choices eventually : being a doctor – which was probably too difficult as my results were average, a nurse – which requires a lot of hard work and long hours and of course the last choice was physiotherapy. When I was studying biology, we learnt about human movement, joints and muscles which I enjoyed fondly – thus I made the choice of taking up physiotherapy as my career choice. Thankfully, it all ended up well and I love what I do!
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
The aspect that I enjoy the most about my job is seeing clients recovering and getting better. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I am able to improve their quality of life, from limited actions due to pain in areas to being pain free and doing the things they love again. I enjoy the process of helping others relieve their symptoms and most importantly figuring out the root cause of the pain together with them, as well as working together towards preventing re-occurrence. I love to change the frown on my client’s face upside down from when they first come in to when they leave the clinic pain free!
I also enjoy the work environment that Core Concepts provides, I enjoy working together with my fellow colleagues! From having in-depth discussions with other physiotherapists and functional trainers in the team about helping clients #GetBetterStayBetter to the bonding sessions we have outside of work.
If you had the chance to meet someone famous, who would it be and why?
Taylor Swift!!! I’ve been a huge fan of hers ever since her “Teardrops on my Guitar” MV came out in 2006 – it was love at first sight!
