Brief Biography:

Clare qualified as a physiotherapist from Sheffield Hallam University in 2000, she has spent the last 9 years working in the field of paediatrics. Clare has experience working with children from birth to nineteen with a wide variety of conditions including neurological, developmental, musculoskeletal and respiratory conditions.

She has experience of working in outpatient clinics, the paediatric ward, client’s homes and educational settings. She also has experience of working with a wide variety of other professional services involved in a child’s care and values a collaborative approach to ensure the best possible outcome for the child.

Clare enjoys working with children and ensures she tailors her treatment to meet the needs of each child as an individual. Clare adopts an open and friendly, yet professional approach to clients and their families in order to develop good two-way communication and ensure their wishes, needs and goals are heard and at the centre of physiotherapy input.
I have loved seeing Therapy Stars grow and develop and in January 2019 I opened our clinic space in Penley. Our latest new service has been our Hydrotherapy service which was launched in June 2021.
