“It is great to come somewhere that understands my husband’s condition. He does not feel that he is the only one now and he is benefiting from the sessions.”

Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s a progressive neurological movement disorder caused by changes to the brain which result in a loss of dopamine.

Stroke

Our approach to the recovery from stroke is to see it as a learning process – a relearning of skills necessary for each person.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis affects each person in very different ways. Personal goals will therefore vary greatly.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition and each person will follow a different pathway through life.

Other Movement Disorders

Conductors are trained in all aspects of neurological movement disorders. If you don’t recognise any of the above as the condition you require.

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

At NICE we believe that every adult with a neurological movement disorder should be respected, listened to and supported to achieve their life goals. Irrespective of the underlying problem we see the ‘person’; someone who wants to learn and develop skills which are important to them. Conductors will work with each individual to help them plan their goals, work towards achieving them and most importantly celebrate their achievements. Programmes are run in diagnosis specific groups to help foster a feeling of understanding and to provide a positive environment in which to share challenges and solutions.

Conductors recognise that carers and family members are also living with a movement disorder and often need support, guidance and practical help to meet everyday challenges. By working with the whole family we can help support a home environment which is conducive to learning and provides opportunities for the person to develop skills which are meaningful in everyday life.

The core service we offer is conductive rehabilitation. This is a structured programme which helps the person learn how to consciously control their movements as one way of improving everyday activities. Alongside these sessions we also offer a full range of services to promote the application of learning into everyday life – see side buttons for additional sessions on offer.
