Founder of Ready Steady Therapy and Senior Paediatric Physiotherapist
“I love to make physio sessions fun for everyone! I know plenty of silly songs and games, so it doesn’t feel like we’re working.”
Hannah has worked with children in a range of physiotherapy settings since her graduation in 2011 from the University of Nottingham, England. Before moving to Australia in 2017, Hannah held paediatric physiotherapy roles in the National Health Service, working in major UK hospitals. Her most recent role was Highly Specialised Paediatric Physiotherapist, and involved working with children with complex disabilities at St Georges University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Now in Australia, Hannah is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and the National Paediatric Physiotherapy Group. She has worked as a Senior Physiotherapist in the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, working both clinically and in research. When she first moved to Sydney, she worked with non-government organisations, providing paediatric physiotherapy to children in the community. This helped her to gain a good understanding of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Hannah has experience in working with children of all ages and with multiple conditions, ranging from, but not limited to; complex physical disabilities, developmental delay, neuromuscular conditions, rehabilitation, sporting injuries, neurodisabilities, and acquired brain injuries.
She loves helping children and their families to work towards the physical goals of the child, using assistive technology to support development. She looks forward to seeing you at your physio session, especially if you also know some silly songs!
