My special interests are

Developmental problems in under 5’s– I have worked in this area for 7 years, and have completed the Bobath course so have highly specialist assessment and treatment skills. I have a very broad range of experience in children experiencing physical delay.

Including general concerns about normal development

Monitoring and advising on children at risk of delay – eg premature, low birthweight, multiple births

Children with diagnosed difficulties – cerebral palsy, developmental delay

 

Chronic pain syndrome, Chronic fatigue syndrome and medically unexplained symptoms

I worked in a tertiary London hospital seeing adolescents with the above conditions. I have a very practical and tailored approach to helping young people and young adults (up to 25) address all aspects of life to manage symptoms. I aim to show clients how to self-manage their symptoms and provide the practical support in implementing change.

There are many conditions that can present similarly to the above diagnosis include – hypermobility syndrome, Ehlers danlos syndrome, fibromyalgia, CFS/CF/ME, functional somatic syndrome, conversion disorder.

Symptoms that can be treated are- fatigue, pain, poor sleep, spasms, pins and needles, weakness, mind fog/ poor concentration, headaches ect

These symptoms and the way they present are very complex so please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss how I might be able to help.
