For the task I charged you with - facilitating an anxiety-free build-up to the holiday, journey and arrival - I am pleased to report that I followed instructions to the letter and you scored 100%. If anything, I was a bit too relaxed!!!!
I have known Richard for some time and find him very professional and caring. He is very easy to talk to and will listen to what you have to say when I have to go to see him he is friendly and chatty and just a very nice man doing an excellent job.
I am no longer a smoker. The hypnosis gave me the belief I could control the desire to smoke.
Our elderly mother, who has Parkinsons has benefited greatly from the treatment and practical advice received at home. She looks forward to her treatments(from Meryl) which are professional, friendly and caring . We could not ask for more.
I was referred (by BUPA) to the Wimborne Clinic following a brain haemorrhage. With Meryl Goddard as my physio and Margo Stephens as my speech therapist, my progress has described by my Consultant as ‘remarkable’ and by my GP as ‘brilliant’. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today.

What can Physio For Rehab Treat?
What Is Neurological Physiotherapy?
Neurological physiotherapy provides rehabilitation to individuals who have had an injury to their nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) from either an accident, disease or other medical events.
A neurological physiotherapist has an in depth knowledge of neurological conditions and an understanding of how these conditions affect the individual’s ability to move independently.
A neurological physiotherapist aims to restore more efficient movement, thereby improving and maintaining optimal functional abilities.
What Is Rehabilitation For The Older Person?
As we grow older our bodies change and our strength and general fitness can reduce, this makes it more difficult to carry out everyday activities such as standing up, washing, dressing and walking. Physiotherapy can help in many ways such as strengthening muscles which can prevent falls and increase mobility and independence.
Assessment and Treatment
The assessment includes a discussion about your medical history, mobility, how it affects you and what you would like to achieve. This is followed by a full physical examination to look at range of movement, strength, tone, co-ordination, sensation, posture, balance, walking and hand/arm function. Personalised physiotherapy goals will then be set between you and your physiotherapist (and if appropriate family and carers).
The treatment will depend on the findings of the assessment and will be tailor made for each individual. However they will often include:-
- Core Stability/Posture Re-education
- Balance Training
- Transfer Practice
- Falls Prevention
- Hands on Treatments
- Spasticity Management
- Gait/Walking Re-education
- Walking Aid and Equipment Advice
- Respiratory Exercises and Advice
- Guidance and Advice to Family and Carers.
Assessment and treatments are available in the clinic, at home and in care homes wherever is best for you.
