Having graduated from the University of Southampton in 2009 Helen commenced her physiotherapy career within the NHS, working for Yeovil District Hospital and Poole Hospital, choosing to specialise in the field of neurology. During this time Helen gained extensive experience in elderly and neurological rehabilitation, spending 6 years treating a vast range of neurological, complex medical and post-surgical patients.
Helen joined BWT in 2018 and forms part of our Neurology and Community Therapy team providing neurological and rehabilitation for seniors in clinic or in their own home or residence. A highly successful Dizzy Clinic has been established by Helen treating complex vestibular disorders enabling patients to return to levels of confidence and independence they had not been able to experience, sometimes for many years.

Helen’s philosophy to her profession is summed up below
‘I am a strong advocate for promoting activity and exercise among our growing elderly population. As a Physiotherapist, I personally feel that I am in the privileged position of being at the front line in fighting frailty and helping to improve our patients’ quality of life. Elderly people have specialised therapy needs and often have multiple co – morbidities underlying their main presenting complaint. This requires a skilled Physiotherapist to establish an effective but safe rehabilitation plan. At BWT we always strive to maximise the potential of our patients, working closely with families, carers and medical colleagues to help our patients achieve their goals.’
