Biography

Esther started her career in Physiotherapy in 2003, working at East Surrey Hospital, where she worked within an acute hospital setting. In 2005 she moved to Devon, working in Exeter in both the NHS and the private sectors, particularly with patients affected by neurological, musculo-skeletal and orthopaedic conditions. During that time she also worked as a Physiotherapist in a school for children with complex disabilities. She has lived and worked in Tavistock since 2009.

In 2011, she worked as Research Fellow and Lecturer in Physiotherapy at Plymouth University, and consequently received her Doctorate in 2015. She has had much of her research published and has lectured internationally on the subject of core stability training. Esther is registered with The Health Care Professions Council (HCPC), The Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP).
