Our Team

Sarah Joice became Clinical Director of PEAK Physiotherapy Limited in November 2005. All of the physiotherapists here at Yorkshire Neuro Physiotherapy are personally recruited and carefully selected based upon their knowledge, experience and personal attributes.

Here is our team...

Victoria Murray, MCSP

Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist

Victoria graduated from York St John’s University in 2008 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy. Following a number of years working in the NHS gaining experience within different physiotherapy disciplines, she specialised in Neurology.  In 2013, she took on the role of sole physiotherapy provider for a Specialist Unit, providing individually tailored treatments and rehabilitation programmes for a range of neurological condition including stroke, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, but primarily Traumatic Head Injury.

This experience has strengthened her passion for neurological rehabilitation and she is an advocate and firm believer in maintaining and optimising an individual’s function.

Post-graduate training has included the Introductory Bobath course (modules 1, 2 and 3) and a variety of equipment and postural management training programmes. In 2018, she completed her acupuncture training which is a useful addition to her existing repertoire of skills.

Victoria has a diverse, eclectic outlook when it comes to her treatment approach, and is able to modify her practice to suit individuals, regardless of their condition or disability. Her understanding and accumulated knowledge also allows her to be adaptable and apply her knowledge to other areas of physiotherapy including Elderly Care, gait re-education and general postural/mobility problems.

She currently works for the NHS on a part-time basis providing specialised postural management prescription and advice. This also runs alongside her work with the Motor Neurone Association and Headway Brain Injury Association, Second Chance.

When she is not working, Victoria enjoys spending time with family and friends, and in particular enjoys long walks with her four-legged friend. She professes to enjoy DIY but in fairness will admit to regretting the ideas at a later date!

She adopts an empathetic and inquisitive approach, empowering her clients through advice, education, signposting, and referrals, alongside hands-on neurorehabilitation. Natalie will support you to work towards your dream goals, breaking them down into smaller achievable stages along the way.

Natalie joined the PEAK team in April 2022, and works within our specialist adult Neuro and Paediatric teams. She is predominantly domiciliary based, offering home/school appointments across the Yorkshire region.
