Andrew Marr - Broadcaster / Journalist - Stroke
Lord Richard Attenborough - Actor/Director - Traumatic Head Injury
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.”

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.”

Angelika Fromke - Personal Care Assistant
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.”

I’m so glad I found Saebo online”

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. “
