I have been fortunate to have received many positive comments and some great feedback over the years.

A selection of comments received from my clients…

Following a recent accident and having undergone surgery for a fractured tibia, fractured wrist and hair line fracture in the foot I required assistance in rehabilitation to enable me to start walking again. 

I immediately contacted Nicola as having seen her earlier in the year for shoulder/back problems I knew she would be able to help and give me the confidence I required. 

Nicola came to see me several times at home and gave me the confidence, reassurance and showed me the exercises I needed to enable me to progress on the road to recovery.   After her first visit she contacted the consultant regarding his protocol with regard to weight-bearing, and the next visit we started towards 50% weight-bearing.  Following on from that we progressed to using two crutches and then one. 

I would thoroughly recommend Nicola if you require the services of an experienced physiotherapist.

Nicola saw me for shoulder pain and after relatively few sessions was able to improve  my range of mobility and pain significantly.

I had spent a year thinking that I would just have to accept that I was stuck with this dodgy shoulder and couldn’t go back to the gym or exercise classes. I am now back to regular exercise after Nicola’s help. I went to Nicola after a previous physiotherapist had spent twice as long with me with no improvement. Nicola gave me a small number of very clearly explained exercises to do and they worked. If you’re thinking of seeking her help, do it!

Nicola has a great treatment facility at Swan Cottage, but she only recommends further treatment when it’s needed. I’ve had three different injuries, all of which have been treated successfully by Nicola, and I’d have no hesitation in recommending her for any type of sports-based or similar Injury.

Nicola is a great physio. She has a wealth of experience covering common and not so common injuries. She has an excellent diagnostic approach, carefully taking you through a rigorous set of questions and movements to ensure she fully understands the problem. From there, Nicola quickly identified the problem I had (of which there has been a number related mostly to Mountain Biking) and provides both excellent treatment and inter-treatment exercises simply explained and easy to carry out.

Having suffered for some time with hip pain, particularly at night time, my GP suggested a consultation with Nicola and I’m so glad I took it up.
She was able quickly to identify the root of the trouble and with just two visits and a gentle daily exercise regime, I was very quickly back on track.
Walking is no longer difficult and I have taken up cycling as well as resuming a bit of golf now that is permitted.
I would most definitely use Nicola’s expertise, her personable and highly professional services again should the need arise.

I have always enjoyed my fitness but since having my son I’ve not felt confident enough to do what I used to do.
I went to see Nicola as I sought medical advice and despite them telling me my pelvic floor was ok, I knew it still didn’t feel right.
It was a year after having my son I saw Nicola so I was worried it wouldn’t make any difference but I have been proven wrong! Nicola filled me with confidence from the moment we met.
Her knowledge, experience and passion for what she does, was delivered in a professional manner making me feel calm and at ease (not embarrassed or uncomfortable at all).
I was surprised how quickly the exercises made a difference and I am pleased to say I am exercising regularly and I’ve just completed a 5k mud run with no mishaps.
Thank you so much for your help.

I would be glad to recommend Nicola.

If you are searching for private physio treatment. I had my knee replacement during the lockdown period of 2021, and consequently had no access to face to face physio treatment. My surgery told me about Nicola and I immediately went to see her. I had to wait a while as she is a very busy lady and I could understand why after my session with her.

She was a lifesaver at a time when all was not going well with my recovery. She was efficient and understanding of my worries re- my slow progress but with her care and exercise regime I soon began to feel more confident and gradually my knee became less stiff and my walking and other movements improved over a short time.

I can honestly say I don’t think I would have seen such progress and my confidence growing without her. So thank you Nicola and I’m sure you are helping many more people, in a similar situation.

With Nicola’s clear and simple instructions online (via video call), I have been able to stay at home and achieve considerable relief from the pain of a stubborn and long-standing condition.

Margaret, May 2020

I had spinal surgery fusing 3 vertebrae 4 years ago and was once again in pain in another area in my spine. I sought help from Nicola although I knew that the problem was most likely structural.
I was surprised and very pleased that having taken a careful history and listened to my symptoms she was able to give me exercises (they were not difficult) which have helped to reduce the pain and give me more movement. Nicola was gentle in her attitude and encouraged me.
My first two visits were in person and then the next two over the internet. The internet consultation worked well. I managed to position my iPad so we could see each other and she could guide me.

Mary, May 2020

Just like to say thank you for your virtual consultation on my recent back problem. It was very clear and worked well.
I was very nervous about starting new exercises but you were very reassuring and knowing you were on the other end of the phone if needed was comforting.
My follow up appointment was good because I could give feedback and check I was doing the exercises right.
With much appreciation.

Mary, April 2020

I’d like you to know, Nicola, that I’m really pleased and grateful for your advice and help; all via a telephone consultation!
The knee feels quite normal now, and it seems the fist under the left buttock when lying on my back in bed is no longer required.

This is just to thank you for your successful, and incredibly effective treatment of our international violinist. When I brought him to you, I thought that our Festival might be in danger of having to find a new international violinist at no notice. After his treatment with you, he was able to resume with some considerable equanimity. His words to myself and, I believe, to you suggested that no-one previously had been as effective as your good self. Profound gratitude, and don’t forget that you’ve got two free tickets for Hellens Music next year!
