Dr Heather Epps
Heather is the clinical lead in aquatic physiotherapy
I completed the residential Bath hydrotherapy course in 1993 and am trained in Watsu®, Aquastretch, Bad Ragaz Ring Method, and Halliwick, to name but a few. I developed Aquaepps® techniques to influence muscle tone and transitioning between positions in water. I am an Accredited Aquatic Therapy Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (ATACP) tutor and have been teaching physiotherapists, educational staff, carers, support workers and families for many years. I sit on the ATACP executive committee and was awarded the Robert Williams award for meritorious work in hydrotherapy at the World Congress of physiotherapy. I have released 4 training DVD’s in hydrotherapy, 2 are aimed at those with neurological dysfunction and 2 are foundation techniques for treating the upper limb, spine and lower limbs.
Mark is the Operations Director of LHAP
I enjoy the day-to-day running of the clinic, answering queries, helping everything to run smoothly and giving our clinicians and staff the means to focus on their key goals – to provide first-class independent healthcare in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment.
My favourite part of each day is meeting our clients and being allowed to share in their successes and achievements. I trained as a Pollution Chemist specialising in Geology but ended up working for an American engineer firm. Having taken a career change, I trained as a primary school teacher in 2005, specialising and leading the teaching and learning of Maths across Key Stages 1 and 2 at alarge junior school in Reigate.
Lauren is our lead physiotherapy assistant here at LHAP
Lauren works mostly in the clinic, but does support some clients in the community. sShe was our first member of staff and started with us before the clinic was finished! Lauren is planning on starting her BSc (Hons) degree course in Physiotherapy in September 2022.
Sarah provides hydrotherapy assessments and treatments on Saturday afternoons at the centre
I have been working with children for over 20 years and take a lead role in providing hydrotherapy services within my local NHS team in Lewisham, London. When I saw the role available to work in a more rehabilitative setting, I was very keen and now enjoy working with the variety of clients who can access this clinic, to help them work towards their individual goals.
Matthew is one of our Physiotherapy Assistants and can mostly be found at clinic on a Saturday supporting Sarah
My name is Matt and my role as part of the LHAP team is currently in the capacity of the poolside assistant role. I am responsible for ensuring that everything runs smoothly on my working days and most importantly to ensure that all clients enjoy a welcoming experience at LHAP in which their time here is tailored specifically to their desires and individual needs.
