Stephanie opened The Little Physio in 2019 with the intention of creating a practice that embodied her values of excellence in clinical care, empowering families and collaborative evidence based care.

With over 12 years of clinical experience in paediatric physiotherapy, Stephanie's practice follows the philosophy that therapy is most successful when treatment is specific to each individuals direct needs, whilst including the wider developmental picture.
