Sally is a highly skilled neuro-physiotherapist with particular interest in the rehabilitation of complex neurological disabilities and the evaluation and treatment of vestibular dysfunction. She has considerable experience of working with community-based support teams, providing training to families and support workers, receiving positive feedback on her team working and ability to engage clients in real world exercise beyond the clinic room.
Sally has extensive expertise in the field of neurology, having graduated as a physiotherapist in 1986 from The Middlesex Hospital, London, specialising in neurology in 1989 at the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, London. She has since worked in neurology at St Mary’s Hospital (London), The Wolfson Neurology Unit (London), Unsted Park Rehabilitation Unit (near Guildford) and Heatherwood Hospital (Ascot). In 1998 Sally began working in independent practice and in 2004 opened her own purpose-built rehabilitation clinic, Milestones.
She is an active member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Interested in Neurology (ACPIN), the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists with an Interest in Vestibular Rehabilitation (ACPIVR), Surrey Acquired Brain Injury Network steering group (SABIN) and Physio First, which represents chartered physiotherapists in private practice. Sally is recognised as a leader in her field and provides clinical teaching, consultation and supervision to a wide range of public and private sector practitioners and organisations.
Sally uses a problem-solving approach and, as with all of our partners, Sally is a keen advocate for comprehensive holistic rehabilitation approaches using a biopsychosocial model – the idea that through engagement in physical, psychological and social processes people can live life without being dominated by their disability. Through supervision she inspires her large team of physiotherapists, trainers and massage therapists to follow the same approach in their work.
