Accreditations and Qualifications

Since graduating in 1997 with a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy, I have invested a lot of time developing my knowledge and skills, which has enabled me to offer high quality assessments and interventions.

My postgraduate training includes…
MAES Therapy

I am a MAES Trained Therapist having completed the Intro to MAES Therapy, 4 week MAES therapy course and ART Advanced MAES Therapy Course. I now assist on the 4 week courses.

MAES Therapy is a specialist course for Paediatric Therapists who want to gain new insights, increased knowledge and develop their clinical reasoning and treatment skills in relation to children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions. A new and pioneering approach based upon 25 years’ expert clinical and teaching experience world-wide and focusing on excellent treatment skills. Contact me today to discuss how I can help.

The Oswestry ORLAU Gait Course 

This fantastic course has helped me understand typical gait, the reasons for deviations from this and appropriate options to address these. It helps me to feed into a child’s orthotic evaluations.

Helen went above and beyond in the treatment she gave my daughter. She improved so much in the time that she spent with Helen. Couldn’t recommend her enough, really brilliant physiotherapist.

Georgia’s Mum

We see Helen for physiotherapy for my daughter, and we are excited to see how Sienna is understanding her body better; each session we see something new!
I would recommend Helen’s services to any parent, she invests so much time trying to understand and develop Sienna’s ability to move in new ways, and has been a massive support to both Sienna and us as parents.

Helen is fantastic. Vinnie has come on so much since having his physio sessions and he is making continuous progress. Helen has helped me as a mother to understand Vinnie’s needs and how to support them in the best way I can to make everyday a little easier for him. Vinnie loves going to see Helen for his sessions and it is always a pleasure. I couldn’t recommend Helen enough.

Vinnie’s Mum

As a family we worked hard for a long time on my daughter’s physical development and made very little improvement. Helen gave us a different perspective and a host of new ideas. In 3 months the difference was incredible. I cannot recommend her enough. What a wonderfully calm and patient lady, with such an approachable manner. Such a relief to have found her. Thank you Helen.

M. A. E. S. Therapy Course

Having completed the 4-week course, I now assist on the MAES Therapy course. This is a new approach to the hands-on treatment and management of children with Children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurological difficulties. This has enabled me to continue to develop my skill set at the same time as sharing my knowledge to other professionals – Children’s Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists.
