Following an initial telephone consultation to understand your child's specific needs, I offer a full and thorough assessment to enable a honest expert opinion on further action. I can then provide tailored advice, programmes and/or treatment as required.
I take a holistic, hands-on approach to treatment where necessary and work closely with children, their families and other professionals to ensure they reach their full potential. I am passionate about working with, and empowering parents, to enable them to optimise their child’s ability. I will also incorporate elements of yoga into my physiotherapy practice where appropriate.
It is important to assess a child in their own, familiar environment: This gives you the added convenience of me coming to you. However, if required I will also see your child at nursery, school, in the playground or swimming pool.
I cover Central, Southwest and Southeast London with the M25. If you are unsure whether I can come to you, please get in contact.
As well as incorporating yoga techniques into my physiotherapy practice, I can offer 1:1 yoga sessions following an initial assessment, whether they have movement challenges and/or special needs or not.
Getting children started involved in Yoga early, has been shown to be very valuable in encouraging understanding about their bodies and their minds. Other benefits include:
Building focus and concentration
Increasing confidence and positive self-image
Learning about the importance of movement and breathing
Encouraging the use of strategies to manage stress and anxiety early
Enabling children to talk about how they are feeling.
But, most of all FUN!
I will occasionally teach group sessions, but I organise these as required, based on numbers and similar need. But, please ask if you are interested in the class for your child.
