Meet the Team
Vicki is a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 17 years’ experience in all aspects of physiotherapy, including spinal problems, paediatrics and respiratory.
"I was lucky enough to get a place at the University of Hertfordshire where I studied for 3 years and faced the clinical challenges of placements in the ‘big London’s’ of Chelsea and Westminster, Charing Cross and St Thomas’ - they provided me with lots of experience and lots of challenges."
Following qualification in 2003, Vicki went on to do both her junior and senior rotations within a number of NHS trusts. She worked closely with The University of Liverpool facilitating student placement and mentoring. Vicki has worked at several private practices throughout the Northwest region including Wirral, North Wales and Manchester and feels these experiences have enriched her practice and enhanced her clinical skill and expertise. These varied experiences have enabled her to focus and develop her skill set with a wide variety of patients.
Vicki is a great advocated of continuous professional development and regularly attends courses and evening lectures with a variety of consultant teams. This has enabled her to build excellent working relationships with several consultants who are experts within their fields. Vicki is very much of the opinion that there is always something new to learn. "As physiotherapists it is crucial that we are up to date and knowledgeable about current research and treatment concepts to ensure we can provide our patients with the best possible care and expertise".
Vicky has a very keen interest in spinal and shoulder problems. She is an advocate of a ‘hands on’ approach to treatment but is passionate about empowering and educating patients with education, knowledge and self-management skills and exercises in order to prevent further or future injury and facilitate long term self-management.
Vicki also has a very specialist interest in paediatrics and has treated neo-natal infants through to pre-school and beyond. She has completed her introduction into paediatric Bobath in London and is keen to progress with this. ‘I love the challenge of working with children and the rewards this area offers both patients and therapists alike. I love working as a physiotherapist and feel very fortunate that I have a career that I love and feel very passionate about."
When not at work Vicki is busy with her family, being married to Rob and having 2 children. She enjoys fun times with her family, cooking and particularly baking, traveling and yoga.
Rob, Vicky’s husband, qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist after completing his studies at the University of East London in 2006, having previously completed a Sports Science degree. He spent his first 6 years as a physio working within the NHS where he spent much of his time working between musculoskeletal outpatients, orthopaedics and a specialist hand therapy team.
Between 2012 and 2020 Rob specialised in Occupational Health Physiotherapy, a specialist area of the profession that centres around the worker, work, and the workplace. "The focus is on early intervention and injury prevention through expert assessment, treatment and support that is specific to both employee and the work tasks they carry out." This path has led Rob to be a committee member for ACPOHE, The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics, the professional network of physiotherapists who specialise in work and health.
Rob has also worked within different sports environments during his career including football, rugby, and basketball.
Robs personal and professional experience within the NHS, occupational health and sport allows him to tailor his patient centred approach to rehabilitation dependant on the individual, whatever their goal, whether it be returning to work, rehabbing a sports injury or generally moving better day to day.
Away from work Rob enjoys lifting heavy things in the gym, yoga and hates running (but tries to like it!). He also loves family holidays with Vicki and the children, especially skiing.
Stewart has been a Chartered Physiotherapist since qualifying from The University of Liverpool in 2003. Since then he has worked full time in the NHS and worked in the private sector since 2007.

Stewart specialises in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions of the lower limb, as well as working closely with lower limb orthopaedic surgeons in pre and post-operative orthopaedic clinics.
Stewart uses his extensive musculoskeletal knowledge and his keen interest in sport to help patients rehabilitate after injury, as well as diagnose problems to guide patients’ treatments efficiently and effectively. He also uses additional skills such as acupuncture to help patients manage more chronic ongoing pain conditions.
Stewart has always had a keen interest in sport, participating in rugby union at local club level and cricket at a county level in his youth. Nowadays he does endurance events such as Tough Guy and Tough Mudder and practices Taekwondo.

She graduated in 2008 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy and since has worked across a variety of settings including the NHS, private healthcare and in occupational health.
Amelia quickly developed an interest in pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain, pelvic health and connective tissue therapy. Her passion in this area led her to undertake further studies in breast cancer care, studying most recently at The Christie Hospital in Manchester. This diversity of interests led her to take on a combined Breast Cancer & Women’s Health Physiotherapy role in 2018, within the NHS. This is a role she is incredibly passionate about as she has experienced the challenges people often have with the aftereffects of breast cancer and its treatment.
She believes her specialist physiotherapy skills and care can play a key role in enabling those affected, to improve both their physical and emotional wellbeing, whilst encouraging patients to restore control and self-confidence.
