Donna Nicol

Founder and Clinical Director

As the founder of Kids Physio London, I have over 30 years of specialized experience, offering expert paediatric physiotherapy services for babies right through to young adults – often with complex needs. My approach is rooted in early intervention and a holistic methodology, ensuring that every child or young person is empowered to achieve their fullest potential through evidence-based practices, underpinned by supporting our families to confidently carry out exercise programmes at home to optimise outcome.

It's no exaggeration to say that KPL have been instrumental in helping our son interact better with the world. Using a combination of on-land MAES sessions, physiotherapy, and hydrotherapy, they have provided endless opportunity for us all to learn how to support him better, and as a result he is able to be more adventurous in his play, and where he plays! Donna and Anais are constantly interrogating how we can improve their wonderful care - they really go above and beyond. Even a step backwards in his progress is made to feel constructive and useful in their ongoing care. Our family works with a large team of therapists in different disciplines, but KPL is always the benchmark for care, communication, and progress.

Our son Hamdan’s, journey with Andreea as his physiotherapist has been truly extraordinary so far. Hamdan has been seeing Andreea since 2020 and she has been an integral part of his progress, and we are so happy with the outcomes so far. Andreea is incredibly patient, caring and always goes extra mile to engage with his surgeon and NHS physio to give the best treatment to Hamdan and follow up with them to keep all in the loop. She has a wonderful way of engaging with Hamdan and making the sessions feel like playtime. Thanks to her expertise and guidance, Hamdan’s mobility and strength has made a solid improvement over the years. We feel blessed to have Andreea as Hamdan’s physiotherapist, guiding him every step of the way.

Mickey was 14 and had ongoing spinal issues and muscle weakness when we brought him into Kids Physio. He could barely walk more than a few paces and for several months had needed a wheelchair to get around. He could not even continue with school. We were so fortunate to have found Donna and Cristina. In the first session they designed a tailored programme for him, and a couple of months later he was moving around on his own and back in school. Our son hated doing his rehab exercises, but Cristina was very caring and engaging and made the sessions really fun. She was able to motivate him to get the best out of him. He looks forward to each session and now several months later he is pretty much back to full strength. We are so grateful to Cristina and the team for providing such wonderful care and support!

Anais is brilliant! She gives us great exercises to do at home and is encouraging and enthusiastic at every appointment. You can see how deeply she cares for her patients and how committed she is in their growth and journey. We’re so lucky to have her in our team.

I am absolutely delighted to share my experience with Cristina at KPL. Her expertise and dedication have truly made a significant impact on my son’s physical well-being. With her guidance and tailored treatment plans, I've seen remarkable improvements in his mobility and overall health. Her compassionate approach and unwavering support have not only helped my son but also my partner and I. I wholeheartedly recommend Cristina to anyone seeking physiotherapy care

My son has cerebral palsy and has been receiving physiotherapy at kids physio clinic for 6years. Our experience has been nothing but phenomenal as the team has assessed him to create a personalised approach to his therapeutic needs specifically. They have helped to maintain his posture as they are quick to notice any deterioration and troubleshoot the problem. They are very passionate about their roles and this can be seen in their efforts at every session. I am always singing their praises and would highly recommend.

Annaiya B

Donna has been our son's physiotherapist for nearly four years. Her sessions are engaging and fun; exactly what a child needs to be motivated and not see therapy as a chore. He trusts her implicitly and has made great progress. Donna's expertise and support are invaluable.

I have been working with KPL for a very long time, all the KPL team are absolutely fantastic. In particular, Aoibheann has been very supportive and helpful in helping me achieve my mobility goals and overcoming my mobility challenges with cerebral palsy.

Sasha B

I am very pleased with the great work that Aoibheann, has done with my son David. Besides her great professional skills, she is very good at connecting and empathising with David making the therapies sessions more enjoyable and interactive. We would like to thank Aiobheann for her amazing support and dedication toward improving my son's condition.

Roxanna D

Andreea is the most warm and compassionate person, caring for Seb’s mobility, gross motor skills, functionality, and emotional wellbeing. From the beginning Andreea didn’t make assumptions on Seb’s diagnosis, she took the time to treat him as an individual and her perseverance and continuous support to us as a family ensure Seb continues to thrive. Her unwavering dedication has meant Seb and Andreea have a wonderful connection, which shows in his continued progress. We’re incredibly fortunate to have Andreea as Seb’s physio.
