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...

Chris Newbery, MCSP

Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist

Chris graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy, and he joined the team at Yorkshire Neuro Physiotherapy in 2016. In the six years since qualifying, Chris has gained significant experience across a variety of different clinical areas within the NHS and specifically within Neurology and Stroke Physiotherapy. Chris has worked within three different NHS trusts and continues currently with this work in a Senior NHS role, alongside his private work with our team. 

His experience covers a broad range of neurological conditions and presentations. Chris is a proactive therapist who is keen on developing therapy approaches. Most recently, within his current NHS role, he introduced the use of hydrotherapy for stroke patients, a form of rehabilitation that he is passionate about. Whether treating a client in hospital, in clinic or at their own home, Chris feels comfortable to adapt his treatment approach for any setting.

Always ready to expand his knowledge, Chris has undertaken post-graduate training in specialist techniques specific to his area of practice, including the Introductory Bobath course and other courses relating to the management of ataxia, high and low tone, pushing and neglect with stroke clients. Keen to always leave a positive impact, Chris enjoys spending time with the family of his clients and ensuring that he fully understands his client's goals, so that he may tailor his treatment accordingly. 

Outside of work, Chris enjoys CrossFit, running, drinking coffee with his wife, and being taken for a walk by his boisterous black labrador. If any of Chris' patients have a dog, he sees that as a bonus!

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.

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!
