I've been you. I’M HERE FOR YOU

One thing you need to know about me is that I’ve seen both sides of this journey. As an expert, a Highly Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapist in the NHS and in private practice I’ve worked closely with parents to champion their children to thrive.

But there’s more to my story than that. I’m also a Wife, Daughter, and Mum to two boys, one of whom has a Sensory Processing Disorder. So I know how it feels to juggle the day to day, to deal with schools and nursery and not feel seen by the system. I knew what I needed to do, but even doubted myself as a parent at one moment.

That’s when I knew something had to change.
That’s when I knew I needed to do more.

I decided I wanted families to stop feeling like a case number, or a statistic. I wanted more for them, more for you. And that’s when I started my private practice, so I could help families like yours to bridge the gap between private treatment and access to free resources.

Now all of my time, energy and expertise goes into championing

ALL CHILDREN TO THRIVE.

THRIVE

There is always another way forwards, another option, which means no more hearing ‘all the options’ or ‘we’ve done all we can.’ For me, and for the families I work with, no is not an option. We will find a way forwards, your way forwards, together.

For your child to thrive, you need to thrive too.

No-one is expecting you to have the perfect systems in place right now. Perfect parenting isn’t a thing in any situation, let alone this one. But with the right support, guidance and advice, you will stop feeling overwhelmed with what to do next and start to feel confident in the tools you have, and the action you’re taking.

And that’s where my holistic approach, to support your child and also your family comes in, helping you to move forwards together, with clarity and hope for what’s next.

Hey, I’m Jo, and before starting this journey I spent 8 years working as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in the NHS.

Deep down I knew that was never enough for me. I knew I could help more, and do more if I was free to do things my way. And with Arthur’s journey I’ve been there, passed from pillar to post as you search for progress.

I’ve learned how to communicate with Arthur, how to understand his needs and put the right support systems in place for him, and more than that, I’ve also helped to re-educate everyone who’s in his life as he grows to ensure they have all the right information to help if I’m not around. Plus, I’ve also learned how to react when you don’t feel listened to, especially when those feelings of tiredness or burnout get to be too much. A lot of that stems from the support of my family, which is why protecting and looking after your family is key to so much of what I do now.

Hey, I’m Jo, and before starting this journey I spent 8 years working as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in the NHS.

Deep down I knew that was never enough for me. I knew I could help more, and do more if I was free to do things my way. And with Arthur’s journey I’ve been there, passed from pillar to post as you search for progress.

I’ve learned how to communicate with Arthur, how to understand his needs and put the right support systems in place for him, and more than that, I’ve also helped to re-educate everyone who’s in his life as he grows to ensure they have all the right information to help if I’m not around.

A lot of that stems from the support of my family, which is why protecting and looking after your family is key to so much of what I do now.

My Mum is my superhero, and when I was young, she, along with my Nana, Auntie and Uncle formed a tight knit support network around us.

Now, with a family of my own, my Mum is my support network once again, and by being there for us, she’s found herself again. We always put our family time first. It’s precious and it’s the perfect way to re-centre and re-energize. That balance is key for me, because it means I can show up for my boys as the best parent I can be.

For me, the place I escape to is with my horses and dogs. They help me clear my mind in a safe space, where I can recharge ready to push for more every day. They stop me feeling guilty about taking time for me, and helped me to realise that by prioritizing me every now and again, I will find the energy to help my family and my clients, you, even more.

One thing I can always promise you is that by working with me you’ll have someone who’s on your side, pushing for more, pushing for your child to thrive whatever their needs may be.
