Specialist Neurological and Stroke Physiotherapy in your own home for Banbury and surrounding areas

About me

My Training

I graduated from The University of East London in 1997 with a BSc hons in Physiotherapy and have worked as a chartered, state registered physiotherapist ever since.  I had a strong interest in neurology from early on in my training and specialised in neurological physiotherapy in the year 2000, my passion for the subject has grown ever since.

 

I am Bobath Trained having completed my Basic Bobath training in September 2004 and an Advanced Bobath course in July 2007.  As well as using the Bobath Concept in my assessment and treatment of clients I draw on other experiences and concepts to ensure that treatment is tailored to each individual and their goals.  I have a very good understanding of how the brain and nervous system work and how they are affected by damage.  I continue to attend courses and read journal articles to ensure that I am up-to-date with current evidence in neurological physiology, pathology and rehabilitation.


My Experience

Since specialising in neurology I have had a wide range of experience in the NHS in London and Sussex.  I have worked in inpatient settings providing acute care and rehabilitation right through to home based rehabilitation.  For the 8 years before embarking on private practice I was a lead physiotherapist in a variety of neurological and stroke rehab teams where I had a complex caseload as well as helping student and qualified physiotherapists learn and develop skills in neurological physiotherapy.


I have had the great fortune to work alongside some highly skilled physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and nurses.  Over the years these people helped me to build my knowledge and experience in neurological and stroke rehabilitation to enable me to take a holistic view of the client and the rehab process as a whole.
