“Gemma has been amazing helping our son recover from serious brain surgery. Under her guidance we have seen real progress and improvements in his physical abilities. She has built up a lovely rapport with him and he now refuses to get into the hydrotherapy pool without her! She is always kind and professional and constantly includes new exercises to keep it interesting for our son whilst ensuring he gets the most possible benefit from his sessions.”
“Gemma by name and a gem by nature. Her enthusiasm just makes you determined to do your very best. That is why my sit-stand and my walking have improved a great deal.”
