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.
Case Managers – I help Case Managers offer excellent, child-centred Physiotherapy packages for children.
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.
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.
Angela, Sienna’s Mum
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.
