Jill Moore MCSP HCPC MMACP - Physiotherapist and Partner
I trained at Coventry Polytechnic (now University) qualifying with a merit in 1982. After working for 2 years at the Norfolk and Norwich Health Authority, I moved to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore to take up an orthopaedic rotational post, which gave me experience in all aspects of inpatient and outpatient orthopaedics. I also studied for my Manual Therapy (MACP) qualifications in spinal and peripheral joints during this time and went on to be the Senior I in charge of Outpatients, completing an acupuncture course before setting up KLPC with Di Hewetson in 1989.
Like all my colleagues at KLPC, I enjoy treating a wide range of conditions that we see at the clinic, but I do particularly like treating older people with problems such as degenerative joints, spinal stenosis and joint replacement surgery.

Di Hewetson MSc MCSP HCPC - Ergonomist, Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor and Partner
I trained at St Thomas' Hospital in London, leaving in 1983 to start my first NHS job at The Westminster Hospital. I really enjoy treating people with musculoskeletal problems so moved to the RNOH, Stanmore where I treated both in and out patients. I developed an interest in the way that pain or injury affects our muscles and how we move, so completed my Acupuncture training in 1988.
In 1995 I gained my Master Degree in Ergonomics, recognising that how the working environment has a huge impact on our bodies.
In 2001 I trained to become a Pilates Instructor and started the Pilates Therapy classes to look more at how a specific form of exercise and movement can help improve our posture, muscle strength, coordination and balance, and hopefully prevent further injury.
It is easy to be enthusiastic about treatments when you have personally benefited from acupuncture and Pilates, and despite back surgery in 2010 I have trekked in the Himalayas, swum The Channel, completed the infamous 'ice mile' (fewer than 440 individuals worldwide have achieved this), completed triathlons, recently cycled 100Km around the Chilterns, and cycled to Paris. I particularly enjoy treating the older athlete.

Will Ayres MCSP HCPC - Physiotherapist
I qualified in 1995 and worked at Barnet General Hospital. As a Senior II, I specialised in musculoskeletal conditions, teaching students and junior staff in this field. As a Senior I, I set up some of the first physiotherapy practices in GP surgeries in Borehamwood and Bushey.
After 6 years in the NHS I began my Masters in veterinary physiotherapy and branched out into private practice, pitch side and sports physio. This has included rugby, football, swimming, golf, volleyball, running and gymnastics. I now coach junior rugby, which has developed my interest in treating paediatric sports injuries and hypermobility.
My spare time is spent with my family, running and swimming. I also continue my commitment to learning and keep up with advances in physiotherapy and the medical world.

Julie Vassilou BSc MCSP HCPC - Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor
I qualified in 1993 with a first class degree from Brunel University before working at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, gaining experience in various areas of in-patients and out-patients. I specialised in Out Patients and Hands/Plastics. I then moved to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hosptial in Stanmore before moving into private practice. During this time I qualified as a Pilates teacher with the Body Control Pilates Association and I have been teaching classes and 1:1 in Hertfordshire since. I enjoy incorporating aspects of Pilates with physiotherapy, especially for people with lower back pain.
