We’re here with a mission – Get On And Live
GOAL aims to provide a service where clients with both acute and chronic conditions can access specialised physiotherapy without a wait. Because from our experience working within the NHS we have been aware daily of the increasing demand on physiotherapy services and waiting times. We know that’s not good for you.
We offer a client led service where we will listen to your problems and through assessment and delivery of safe and evidence based practice we will work with you to help you achieve your goals.
Goal Therapy’s aim is to be a network of dedicated physiotherapists under one roof providing specialist assessment and treatment for all conditions.
Some examples of the conditions we assess and treat both Acute and Chronic
- Neurology – i.e. Stroke, Parkinson’s. Multiple sclerosis, Motor neuron disease, peripheral nerve injury
- Orthopaedic – post joint surgery, joint pains, osteoarthritis, neck/back pains, sports injuries, tendinitis
- Acupuncture/Taping – Orthopaedic and musculoskeletal issues
- Mobility and balance
- Falls and reduced mobility – Improve balance and strength and educate
- Mental health – Dementia and Alzheimer’s therapy for function and mobility
- Palliative care

- Acopia – not coping at home. Advise and education
Goal’s physiotherapists are Karen Oxley and Lisa Harte
“Karen was recommended to me following a serious stroke 6 months ago. During the time I have been her patient
I have always found her to be totally committed to ensuring I achieved the best mobility I could. Karen devised an excellent programme for me to work on at home in her absence and ensured my progress was consistent and good
I have no hesitation in recommending Karen to any one requiring the services of a physiotherapist “
“After injuring my back playing hockey and not knowing where to go to seek help, it was such a relief to find Goal Therapy.
The communication was professional and friendly and I was seen on the same day I got in touch. Lisa put me at ease immediately when we met and was able to work quickly to find the problem and leave me with some manageable and effective exercises.
This meant my recovery time was improved and I could manage this myself at home. Goal Therapy really helped build my confidence again after my injury as well as physically helping me no end, I would recommend them to anyone”
“I was so frustrated when my back went during exercise, I run a lot and enjoy exercise classes weekly, I was confident that I wouldn’t be able to get back to my normal routine for at least 6 weeks. I pulled my back on the Friday and saw Lisa on the Saturday.
She came to my house which made having a physio session so much easier as I didn’t have to sort childcare! By seeing Lisa so soon after the injury she was able to stop any secondary injuries and give me the best exercises to get back to normal asap.
I did the exercises repeatedly each day and was back running 10 days later! I would recommend Lisa and the GOAL team to anyone”
