  • Cerebral Palsy & complex disabilities
  • Developmental delay
  • Gait (walking) abnormalities 
  • Motor co-ordination problems
  • Birth problems (talipes, torticollis etc)
  • Neuromuscular conditions
  • Respiratory Conditions (Cystic Fibrosis)
  • Orthopaedic Conditions (planned operations & trauma)
  • Rheumatology (Juvenile Chronic Arthritis)


The treatment may consist of:

  • Hands – on therapy to facilitate normal movement, including the Bobath approach
  • Advice & support on equipment and requirements
  • Home or school exercise programme
  • Advice regarding the need for orthotics
  • Relaxation and activity diaries 

A constant source of support and encouragement

Having suffered with chronic back pain for several years, following major spinal surgery, I am quite convinced that my present mobility is due entirely to the efforts of Gillian Huckett. She has been a constant source of support and encouragement, and given excellant advice on how to maintain my present level of fitness.
