Welcome to The Bobath Centre
We’re the original home of the Bobath Approach – therapy dedicated to helping people with cerebral palsy and similar neurological conditions.
Our highly trained team of specialist physio, occupational and speech and language therapists have a focused and deep understanding of cerebral palsy (CP), in all its complex and various forms. We offer a tailored therapy program to each person we see.
We’re proud to be the UK’s premier teaching centre of Bobath Therapy contributing to the training of health professionals across the UK. We have relocated from London to our centre in Watford, which features high-specification therapy and training facilities.
"From the moment we arrived we knew we were in the right place."
How we can help get therapy started
Let’s get to know each other and have a conversation about your needs and hopes for the future. The easiest way to have this conversation is by booking a free, one-to-one, 45-minute welcome session, hosted by one of our senior Bobath therapists. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about how Bobath Therapy can support your specific needs through individually-centred physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech & language therapy.
Welcome sessions offer advice and information to everyone including:
When you first find out
When you first find out that your child, or a loved one you care for, has cerebral palsy or another neurological condition, it can be helpful to talk to someone who understands. This is where we can help.Bobath Therapy

What is the Bobath Approach?
Our therapists have gone through extensive training in the Bobath Concept, which is a framework for looking at things that we do in our lives (walk, communicate, eat, play, cook etc). We analyse what things can be challenging, what helps you do things efficiently, make suggestions so activities can happen more easily.The Bobath Approach
