Testimonials


Andrew Marr - Broadcaster / Journalist - Stroke
“Richard Sealy of The Rehab Practice Team,  has been an inspiration during my stroke recovery: he is a brilliant and experienced hands-on neuro-physio,  who seems to understand muscles almost intuitively. He is optimistic, dogged  and never gives up  and I cannot recommend him too highly.”

Lord Richard Attenborough - Actor/Director - Traumatic Head Injury
“Richard Sealy is one of the most persuasive, determined and charming young men I have ever encountered.
We first met when I was physically at a low ebb, following a long spell in hospital due to a head injury.
Initially, we talked through what I could and – mostly – what I couldn’t do. Then, having agreed what I secretly believed to be a totally unrealistic goal, he cajoled me out of my wheelchair and we set to work.
Since then, in addition to his undoubted professional expertise, Richard has consistently demonstrated a phenomenal ability to motivate, allied to patience, empathy and never failing good humour.
Now, almost unbelievably, he has proved to me — incrementally and in a totally practical fashion — that the goal we agreed at the outset is indeed within my reach.”

Michael - Stroke Survivor
“I came to see Richard shortly after my stroke and it soon became clear that I was in safe hands. He used his considerable skill and experience to provide the support and motivation I needed during this challenging time.

My rate of recovery has far exceeded my expectations so thank you Richard and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who has the misfortune to be in the same situation.”

James - Stroke Survivor
“Sarah – Thank you very much for providing me with the support and the benefit of your expertise. You really have been a great help in getting my hand and arm back into some sort of working order!”

Angelika Fromke - Personal Care Assistant
 “As a 24 hour carer for a client with a severe brain injury I have worked closely with Richard for a year.

I have consistently been impressed by Richard’s excellent level of care and expertise both in supporting my client and myself on a day to day basis and in the long term . Richard shows a remarkably high level of commitment to his role in developing the quality of life for my client.

Richard’s warm and friendly, professional personality has enabled my client to feel totally at ease with the challenges of his treatment. With kind encouragement Richard has motivated the care team and my client to reach objectives that were far beyond our expectations.”

Patty Lloyd - Events Consultant - Stroke Survivor

“Having suffered a stroke a while back, Richard has treated me periodically for the last two years.

I like him because he is really straight forward. His manner is always pleasant and friendly, yet very professional. His experience shines through in his calmness, and yet he is never “precious” about his profession.

And he always gently pushes me to do the best that I can,  at any given exercise.”


NW - Stroke Survivor
“I made more functional progress within 5 minutes of wearing the SaeboGlove, than I have made in the last 3 years of traditional therapy, including botox, splints and exercises. I was able to open and close a door, pick up and release objects. I’m inspired anew; those endless hours of practice will now be rewarded.
I’m so glad I found Saebo online”

Becki Cobb - BBC/Author 'HiddenInMe' - Stroke Survivor
“When I moved to London I was nervous about finding a new physiotherapist. Luckily I found Richard who has been so supportive on a personal and professional level.
He keeps up with the latest treatments and suggests those that he thinks are suitable for my abilities. He tries to incorporate exercise into day to day activities so they feel like part of my daily routine instead of a chore.
I’d highly recommend Richard and travel myself for almost two hours by bus each fortnight to continue our sessions. It’s certainly worth the journey. “
