WHO WE ARE...

EMMA THOMAS - DIRECTOR AND CLINICAL LEAD PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Emma Thomas

Hello.  I am Emma, the founder of Neurobility Limited.  I started as a lone practitioner in 2012.  Since then the business has grown with opening of the clinic in 2018 and team members coming on board in 2019.

 

I graduated from The University of East London in 1997 with a BSc hons in Physiotherapy. I developed a passion for neurology from early on in my training and specialised in neurological physiotherapy in the year 2000. 

Over the years I have learned and explored many approaches to neurological physiotherapy and rehabilitation through courses, self directed learning and working with some very talented therapists. I draw on all this experience to ensure that treatment is tailored to each individual and their goals.  I am also a specialist in Vestibular Rehabilitation and can successfully treat a broad range of vestibular, dizziness and balance problems. 

I am not fazed by complex or unusual conditions or presentations in clients that I work with and enjoy trying to get to the bottom of what the movement difficulties are and how we can fix them.  I really enjoy working in partnership with my clients and their families to promote fitness and independence. 

 

I still love learning about movement and the nervous system and how we can make changes as physiotherapists, so I keep up to date with new evidence and the latest technology. 

Outside of work I am a proud Mum to twin boys. I love the countryside and keep fit with trail running and walking my dogs. I enjoy camping and the outdoors, and this fits perfectly with my role as an Assistant Scout Leader in my spare time.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.  My registration number is PH52883.  I am  a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Interested in Neurology and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Interested in Vestibular Rehabilitation.

ANIELA ZYCHOWICZ - CLINICAL SPECIALIST IN NEUROLOGICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Hello! A quick stop into my background. I started out my career studying an undergraduate degree in human biology with a semester in Australia studying biomedical science. Whilst the molecular anatomy of humans is incredible, I got more focused on how this impacts people day-to-day. This sparked an interest in being able to positively influence what people are experiencing in their daily lives based on scientific research and understanding.

I applied for a master's degree in physiotherapy and graduated from UEA with a distinction in MSc physiotherapy. My particular interest has always been stroke rehabilitation, I completed a literature review into the effects of CPAP on functional outcomes for patients and have lots of experience working in two different level 2 neurorehabilitation units with complex presentations and out in the community after people have been sent home. I really enjoy bringing some fun into rehab so you’re working hard without realising it.

In my free time I love trying all different types of cuisine, travelling whenever I can and keeping active with sports. I am HCPC registered and a member of the chartered society of physiotherapy. I can’t wait to meet you.

JEN KEMPSTER - PHYSIOTHERAPY ASSISTANT

Jen

Jen graduated from De Montfort University in 1995 with a BA Hons degree in Sports and Leisure Management, specialising in sports physiology and sociology.   In the early stages of her career she gained a number of sports coaching qualifications that she continues to use in both a professional and voluntary capacity.

 

Jen started working with us in the Autumn of 2019 as a Physiotherapist Assistant.  She was keen to use the transferable skills she had developed in a coaching and mentoring capacity, whilst also fulfilling a desire to balance her strategic consultancy, with direct ‘hands on’ work.  Jen has learned quickly with support and expert guidance of the physiotherapy team.  She is thoroughly enjoying the role and finds it hugely rewarding.

She is committed to her professional development and will be looking to extend her areas of expertise to ensure she can provide the best service possible to her clients.

Jen’s previous experience has been invaluable in her development of the Physiotherapy Assistant role here with us.  She has over twenty-five years’ experience within the sport and leisure industry, from a Sports Development Officer to a Chief Executive, which has culminated in the development of her own consultancy business since 2006.  Her professionalism, inter-personal skills, integrity and passion for sport and physical activity has been at the core of building what is now a credible and successful sports consultancy. 

 

Since establishing her own business she has developed areas of specialism in research and insight, quality assurance, business coaching and has a particular interest in projects highlighting the mental health benefits of physical activity.

 

On a personal level Jen is a keen cyclist and enjoys practising yoga on a regular basis, whilst also volunteering as a Beaver Scout leader!  Working with such a diverse range of people in both a professional and personal capacity has improved her emotional intelligence, ability to empathise and encourage clients to get the best out of sessions, and ultimately gain positive results during their rehab process.

 

Jen is a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
