The National Bobath Training Centre

We’re the UK’s national training centre for therapy for children with cerebral palsy, founded on the Bobath Approach.

Our training courses

Our National Training Centre allows us to contribute to the training of NHS and other health professionals across the UK and has allowed those who are unable to travel to our Centre to still benefit from Bobath Therapy closer to home.

All our courses are led by experienced Bobath tutors and specialist Bobath senior therapists who have worked exclusively for many years with people with cerebral palsy.

So, gain new skills and develop your knowledge in supporting people with Cerebral Palsy through our comprehensive training packages.

We have a range of courses to support your development and help you maximise the potential of people with Cerebral Palsy.

On occasion we can also tailor training courses for your individual needs – please get in touch if this is something you think you might need.
