Full neurological assessment
(Adults and children) – 1h to 1.5h
This assessment includes taking a full medical history, asking questions about your past medical history as well as current concerns and lifestyle.
I then complete a physical assessment looking at how your limbs move. I assess the strength of each limb looking for any involuntary movements or compensations. I also assess sensation, joint position sense and coordination.
Further observations are made by looking at balance and posture. I then look at functional activities such as standing, sitting, transfers and walking.
Full vestibular assessment
(Adults and children) – 1h to 1.5h
This assessment includes taking a full medical history, asking questions about your past medical history as well as the history of present condition. I will also ask about lifestyle with regard to posture at work and levels of activities.
Physical examination for people with vestibular problems will entail assessment of eye movements, specific head movement tests as well as observation of gait, posture and balance.
For vestibular treatment and assessments, I refer to a specialist colleague, Lizzie Lock, who also works in the Sussex area.
(Adults and children) – 1h-2h
This assessment includes taking a full medical history, asking questions about your past medical history as well as the history of present condition. I will also ask about lifestyle with regard to posture at work and levels of activity.
I will carry out a full physical examination observing your posture in different positions: standing, sitting, walking and running. I then assess the length and strength of different muscle groups.
Following the assessment, I provide a full exercise program which will focus on areas identified as being either weak or tight
Follow up treatment sessions
45m – 1h
In follow-up treatment sessions, I review all exercises and continue with ongoing treatment according to the goals set within the assessment. Each follow-up treatment will last up to an hour. 45-minute sessions are available if felt it is sufficient.
Follow-up treatment sessions include Parkinson’s physio treatment, Parkinson’s physiotherapy exercises, Stroke rehab exercises, MS treatment and physiotherapy, cerebral palsy physiotherapy, brain injury rehab physiotherapy and more.
(Following full assessment)
If required, I have extensive experience in report writing for insurance companies and/or case managers. Any report would detail each aspect of the assessment and recommendations for treatment with neuro physiotherapy costs included if needed.
Bespoke exercise programs
Following an assessment, exercise prescription is often the first course of treatment. I always email programs with pictures if needed and detailed explanations of how to carry out the exercise, how many times to do it and tips on posture.
This includes Parkinson’s physiotherapy exercises, Stroke rehab exercises and more.

What to expect at your first neuro physiotherapy appointment
Patients will be asked to sign a consent form before their assessment.
Your first session will last up to 90 minutes. I will ask about your medical history, medications, your lifestyle and any pain you have.
I will then carry out a physical assessment which may require you to remove some items of clothing. I will test your strength and the range of movement of your limbs by moving your limbs and asking you to do some movements such as walking, standing and balancing. This will help me gain as much information as I need to get a full assessment of your abilities.
After your assessment, I will discuss my findings and make a plan with you about your therapy goals and ongoing treatment.
Appointments are a fully confidential, safe space. Any issue you may have, please bring it up with me and I will do what I can to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
I take the safety of our patients extremely seriously.
Following on from this, I will be making sure that government guidelines are being followed at all times.
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) will be worn throughout your session: gloves, face mask and apron. Alongside this, I am fully vaccinated and take lateral flow tests twice a week to ensure the confidence and the safety of my patients.
I ask that you DO NOT go ahead with your session if you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., cough, temperature, loss of taste and smell) in the past 14 days, are self-isolating, or awaiting the results of a PCR test.
If you test positive for COVID-19 or start to experience symptoms, I politely ask you to call or email me as soon as possible to cancel your appointment. I am more than happy to rearrange your appointment for a later date.
Each patient will have to fill out a COVID-19 form PRIOR to their assessment. Please make sure you have completed this form otherwise your session may not be able to go ahead.
