Past Participant Feedback

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I appreciated Helene’s evidence based approach and how she incorporated that into her practice. I also appreciated the ample amount of examples of exercises to give patients in each phase of rehab – Daniélle

Thank you for organising a great course – a fantastic idea to run the courses online, the course content was great and Helene very very informative. It was a nice continuation of Helene’s introductory foot and ankle course. Shannon

The foot and ankle course was excellent – very easy to follow and really liked that you also provide the zoom recording of the speaker so you can go back through the material multiple times and not panicking taking notes. No complaints, Helene is an excellent speaker and wonderful lady! – Claire

I was the student that attended this course and would firstly like to extend my gratitude in allowing me to attend. It was a great learning opportunity and I learnt a lot. The Zoom meetings were very well organized and the presentation was well constructed and easy to follow. It created wonderful interaction with other Physio’s and we could learn a lot from each other as well. I am looking forward to further courses. Thanks once again! Michelle

Have never participated in such before but actually found the foot and ankle course both thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Very easy to have discussions and chats; Ann

I really enjoyed Helene’s course. A wealth of information! I came away with a lot of practical tips and up to date protocols. Her rehabilitation ideas are going to be very useful. Also great to have the recordings and notes to be able to refer back to. Caty
