Having grown up in Suffolk, Louise trained at Guy’s Hospital in London and started her career at Nottingham University Hospital. Her passion and interest in neurology rehabilitation grew steadily through her experience of working with stroke survivors and involvement in clinical research trials in Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
She returned to London to train in the Bobath approach. This is a type of physiotherapy treatment that aims to improve movement and mobility in patients with damage to their nervous system to enable maximum functional independence. Louise always ensures an holistic approach to treatment and takes into consideration the whole person.
Louise has recently retired from her role in the NHS where she managed a large NHS Therapy department and was involved in shaping services to improve care for patients locally. During her career she has also influenced rehabilitation services at a national level when working with the NHS England team.
Louise moved back to Suffolk to raise her own family. Keen on the outdoors and all sports, the family play tennis together too. However, these games often end in tears and tantrums – even though the children are now grown up!
