I have specialised in children's physiotherapy for over 20 years having gained experience in both hospital and community settings. I work both in the NHS and in private practice and keep abreast of current research by attending courses and training sessions regularly.
I see children in a variety of settings including in their own homes, schools, nurseries and at my own practice. I also have access to a hydrotherapy pool which I can use for sessions if required.
I have a varied caseload of children including some with very complex special needs.
I particularly enjoy the challenges and rewards of working with children and their families and go out of my way to find the best solutions to help the child and their family achieve the best functional outcome possible.
