How do I know if physiotherapy or psychotherapy is right for me?
Before you choose to go ahead with a session, I offer a no-obligation, free phone chat. This enables me to understand your issues and aims, as well as giving you a chance to ask any questions you may have. During the call, I will ask you several questions, posed in such a way that you’ll start to dig away at the problem, breaking it down, re-assessing what you want.
How TPS Began
Tilehurst Physiotherapy Services (TPS) was established in Reading in 1984, by Jill Wigmore-Welsh, who dreamed of providing high quality therapy services for the local community.
In 1987, the practice principle moved the business into its current location on the Tilehurst Road in Reading: the original black and white oval plaque is still on the front of the property
Between 1987 and 2003 TPS grew until the business was running clinics at sports venues, dance academies, high street locations, within corporate settings as well as having the clinic rooms and an office at Tilehurst Road.
The business employed professional clinical staff and provided services in London, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
Between 2003 and 2013, the business changed, and several clinics were closed when the practice principle qualified as a psychotherapist clinical hypnotherapist, and wellness coach in addition to being an HCPC physiotherapist. The business changed it’s focus and began providing high quality compassionate wrap-around whole person, rehabilitation and recovery care.
In 2006 Jill founded a training academy, for undergraduate and recent graduate healthcare professionals, and began to provide presentations at conferences
In 2008 the Legacy Life Podcast was launched
