I offer therapy sessions at my home-based clinic in Shrewsbury. We also have access to other clinic rooms across the county.

Therapy sessions can be 2 or 3 times a week, weekly or monthly, depending on your child’s needs.

Working alongside other services is vital to share goals and offer the best treatment for children, to achieve this I am happy to work alongside any professional involved in your child’s care.

I specialise in the management of children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neuro-developmental conditions. I offer innovative hands-on therapy with in-depth movement analysis, utilising a holistic approach in identifying how to develop your child’s skills.

I am a MAES Trained Physiotherapist offering this holistic and innovative therapy approach.
