Finding the Causes


Patient-Centred Treatment


Putting Your Child First


I offer therapy sessions at my clinic based in Motcombe near Shaftesbury as well as in your child’s home and school environment.


I specialise in physiotherapy specifically for Children and treat a wide range of conditions :


Cerebal Palsy and similar neuro-developmental conditions

Developmental Delay

SDR Rehab

Post Surgery

Postural pain

Sports injuries

Musculoskeletal pain

Gait abnormalities


I  am a MAES trained Physiotherapist offering this innovative therapy approach to children with neuro-developmental conditions.


I have over 15  years experience as a Physiotherapist working in both the NHS and Private sector. I have a special interest in treating children and offer a highly specialist assessment and hands on therapy.


I am a MAES trained therapist and this new qualification has changed my understanding and approach to treating children with neurological disorders. MAES therapy is a new approach to assessing and treating children with neuro – developmental disorders. , it enables me  to offer individualised assessments and hands on therapy for your child to help them reach their potential.


I also see children with musculoskeletal injuries, sports injuries and pain working in clinic and  schools to provide assessment and treatment and get children back to full function as quickly as possible.


Working as a Paediatric therapist I understand the importance of working as part of a team and have close links to other therapists, Consultants and Orthotists.


I love my job and working with families and children to help them reach their potential and make a difference to a child’s outcome.


Children's Physio Assessments

Assessments generally take 1 hour, but can be more or less depending on your child's needs and will be charged accordingly.


Children's Physio Treatment

Treatment sessions are charged per hour and therefore charges can very depending on the complexity of your child's condition.

There will be further charges for reports (e.g EHCP reports), attending meetings and formal liaison (letters/reports written to other professionals or for your own records).



If you wish to been seen at home travel will be charged from the time spent to get to and from your house. This charge will include travel expenses and time spent travelling.


Can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer. Cards cannot be accepted at this time.


Kara has been working with my daughter over the past year following her SDR operation.

We have seen her on a weekly basis, and absolutely could not progress as we are without her input. She is truly invested in my daughter's rehabilitation,  attending meetings where she can, researching solutions to new patterns of movements my daughter develops, and always being there for advice and guidance when we need her. I chose to work with Kara based on how well she has bonded with my daughter, who is 4. I think this relationship is vital to progress well.

My daughter, as all children do, can play up in therapy, but I've never seen her mess Kara around. Kara has a holistic balance of fun and hard work about her therapy. Kara also is constantly learning and developing her skills and knowledge, on top of the highly expert input she already has.

A fantastic therapist, who has also become a good friend to us on this relentless journey.

Kara has been seeing our daughter for a few years now and has been a huge help to her, keeping her muscles more comfortable and offering advice and support.
