The team

Louise PatrickPhysiotherapist:
Louise Patrick MCSP. SPR

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1984 at Guys Hospital in London and was then delighted to be offered the role of junior/general physiotherapist for a year. I moved to Peterborough district hospital in 1985, again as a junior/general physiotherapist, and later as a Senior 1 and 2 physiotherapist, specialising in outpatients, sports injuries and musculoskeletal injuries, treating patients of all ages occupations and sporting interests.

In 1990 we moved to Suffolk and for 11 years took the post of Senior 1 physiotherapist in the Occupational Health department at Ipswich Hospital, where I treated and trained staff of a wide variety of occupations and advised on ergonomics.

Framlingham Physiotherapy Practice was established in 1997 and enjoys a good relationship with local Consultants, GP's and sports clubs.

I am immersed in the world of horses, both owning and treating horses with my passion leading to my qualifying as a member of the Society of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Physiotherapy in 2005.

Rachel WelshHomeopath:
Rachel Welsh

I am a fully qualified, registered and insured Homeopath. Alongside Homeopathy I also offer Bach Flower Therapy and Allergy testing using the NAET method of testing and elimination. I believe in a holistic approach to healing using these specialist therapies to promote well-being and good health.

I volunteer for two not-for-profit organisations that promote Homeopathy; Homeopathy at Wellie Level (HAWL), which teaches farmers and animal owners who are interested how to administer homeopathy to their own animals, and The Travelling Homeopaths Collective (THC) who provide homeopathic treatment in festivals, and also travelling clinics to reach people who would not normally be able to access homeopathic treatment.

To further support parents and children with the emotional and psychological aspects of family communication I am in the process of training to become a PresentChild® Translator. This process can start to really transform families, helping with both physical health and an increased sense of contentment and well being.

For more information about Homeopathy, see Rachel's website Rachel Welsh Health
