I was due to have a one to one appointment with Alison to discuss my ongoing problem with vertigo/labyrinthitis, but due to lockdown it became a Skype session. It was new to both of us but certainly beneficial to me. Alison went through some exercises with me and suggested I may have vestibular decompensation. She gave me various balance exercises to perform on a daily basis. My balance is certainly much better and hopefully in the long run I will be able to minimise my vertigo episodes through the vestibular rehabilitation exercises.
I had many dizziness episodes over the years that came and went after an initial case of labyrinthitis. I never quite knew what was wrong. I had visited my GP and hospital several times when I had these episodes and always checked out okay. However, I knew it was real and physical and was not in my imagination. I had always been lucky to be a healthy and well person previously. The episodes and symptoms became more frequent and more intense and really affected my life and ability to function daily for the last couple of years. I was very lucky to have found Alison through a google search and set up an appointment via Skype. She very quickly identified and diagnosed my problem which to date in a seven year period no one had previously been able to do. After following her advice and rehabilitation plan, in less than 2 weeks I genuinely feel as if I have my life back and I am on the road to recovery. I am so grateful and blown away and I cannot recommend Alison enough, thanks again Alison.
I cannot thank Alison enough for sorting me out at the end of a very difficult month of trying to cope with BPPV. Her practical and positive approach was exactly what I needed, and her management of the manoeuvres which fixed me was extremely sympathetic. Thanks to her I have my confidence back and am out and about again. I have already recommended Alison to friends and have given her card to my GP.
" I had been suffering from Labyrinthitis for months before being referred to Alison.I immediately felt at ease with her approach and was able to continue the exercises she prescribed on my own. I was able to stop the medication which was making me feel even worse. Alison helped me to recover my balance and self-confidence. She even stayed in touch and coached me over the phone when necessary.If the labyrinthitis ever returns, she will be the first person I'll call."
"Excellent care, and expertise from Alison. She was able to reassure me and correctly diagnose the problem I was experiencing. She developed an effective program of exercises for me to follow, which has significantly improved my balance and gave me hope of recovery. I would highly recommend her to anyone with balance and dizziness problems."
