Antony occurs to me as a therapist with an unstoppable drive to create safe spaces to question, change and grow in order to help people.
I really enjoyed this chat with Antony, we covered a lot. Touching on his new platform, interviewing skills, frustration around ‘fairy-stories’ in physiotherapy and his love of a good argument.
Antony is the founder and creator of The Female Athlete membership, which is a platform where you can view Antony doing real consults. This is a space where you can see genuine, real and interactive cases.
I wanted to ask Antony around his technique for interviewing/doing subjective examinations.
Antony described the common threads are acknowledging people and have them being understood.
“Your not star of the show, they are the star of the show”.
Understanding the impact helps Antony understand what they want me to do next.
It’s not client-centred care, it’s not client-focussed care, it’s client-directed care.
The client decides and leads the way. Antony describes how he has learned the skill to sit and be present. It’s not natural. It’s a practice.
Antony is passionate about how constant questioning of what we know. This is the scientific way.
Antony isn’t looking for agreement, he wants to discuss it, but he hates been wrong! He encourages people to challenge him, he wants them to be free to ask anything, “lets talk about it”.
Antony would rather build his business on geometric progressions and exponential function. Trusting clients and empowering them.
30 mins: Ailish describes how she moved away from pregnancy pilates to pregnancy fitness.
Antony reports “it’s not easy to change and that participants of his master class, will go through an existential crisis”
Do you want to tie your identity to what you do? Antony’s preference is to focus on his values, wanting to help people and provide the bast value service you can.
From 45mins Antony requested I challenge him. He loves arguments! I was useless!
If there is anyone out there up for a big juicy argument with Antony, we would love to hear from you!!
Thank you Antony
