"I was introduced to Catherine by my husband who had consulted her many times over back and neck problems having been referred to her by our GP who considered her to be an exceptional physiotherapist. I was feeling extremely ill with Lupus. Catherine was the only person, out of the many specialists I saw, who actually did something for me. She made a tremendous difference, helping me with acute back pain, recommended a TENS machine, gave me exercises to do which worked and gave constant support and advice on a weekly basis. I still see Catherine – she is friendly, chatty and very knowledgeable. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
