Jenny is an experienced Bobath-trained physiotherapist and has been working in paediatrics for over seventeen years. Having worked in a variety of settings both in the UK and overseas and highly skilled in treating children with a variety of musculoskeletal concerns including hypermobility, postural concerns, torticollis and obstetric brachial plexus palsy and neuro-developmental disorders including Cerebral Palsy, developmental delay and Developmental Coordination Disorder
She is truly passionate about working with children, she enjoys incorporating play and fun into each session as she believes that having the child’s full engagement is essential to achieve optimum results. Finding great satisfaction from helping children to achieve their therapy goals thus helping to improve their quality of life. Since graduating Jenny has worked in a variety of settings, including specialist Children’s Hospitals getting to work through a wide range of paediatric specialities. She has also experienced within the private sector and in the community. From 2008 – 2014 she worked as a paediatric physiotherapist in the Cayman Islands treating a mixture of private and public patients, and being able to adopt a hands-on approach to therapy and having the time and resources to be able to offer sufficient support to the children and families. This was reflected both in the physical outcomes and in the formation of excellent therapeutic relationships.
Jenny also had the opportunity to collaborate and work closely with the teams of internationally trained Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Music Therapists and the Teacher for the Visually Impaired and this experience has enriched her practice making it very holistic. Over the years I have attended many courses including the 8-week Paediatric Bobath course and several other Bobath short courses in the UK and in the USA, the Elaine Owen Gait Analysis & Orthotic Management Course, Sensory Integration (Module 1), Kineseotaping (Levels 1-3) and DMO training. I am also trained in infant massage, paediatric massage and touch therapy for children with Autism.
She is the Mother of an energetic three year old boy and being a mother has given me a new perspective and empathy for the parents of the children that I treat and the need to balance therapy with the needs of the family as a whole.
