Debbie is happy to announce the launch of the next stage of her career as a self-employed neuro physiotherapist. This involves home visits, hydro therapy and treating in rooms - for all types of complex neurological conditions and chronic pain. Debbie has 30 years’ experience in rehabilitation across all sectors. She obtained a Masters in Gerontology from Sydney University in 1999 and completed her titling in neurology in 2013 through the Australian Physiotherapy Association. At that time, she was working in private practices that specialized in chronic pain.
Debbie’s career has continued to take her in the direction of complex problem solving and habit change in health. Debbie highly values a respectful client interaction and connection with her clients, to understand how to help them plan, problem solve and better utilize their bodies to achieve their goals. Utilizing movement to help someone find or rediscover meaning and fulfillment has become the focus of her career. As a neuro physiotherapist she finds that now is an exciting time to be working in this field because neuroplasticity has advanced in all areas of health and science.
Outside of work Debbie has three young adult children with creative interests: theatre, cooking and costume design. She often spends her week-ends assisting her daughter with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) learn independent living skills and making costumes for theatre productions for her son. Mountain biking and working out in the nearby gym with her husband helps her keep fit and helps balance work-life stresses. Her dogs Liesel and Strudel also give her great joy.
