Here is our team...

Victoria Murray, MCSP

Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist

Victoria graduated from York St John’s University in 2008 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy. Following a number of years working in the NHS gaining experience within different physiotherapy disciplines, she specialised in Neurology.  In 2013, she took on the role of sole physiotherapy provider for a Specialist Unit, providing individually tailored treatments and rehabilitation programmes for a range of neurological condition including stroke, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, but primarily Traumatic Head Injury.

This experience has strengthened her passion for neurological rehabilitation and she is an advocate and firm believer in maintaining and optimising an individual’s function.

Post-graduate training has included the Introductory Bobath course (modules 1, 2 and 3) and a variety of equipment and postural management training programmes.

Victoria has a diverse, eclectic outlook when it comes to her treatment approach, and is able to modify her practice to suit individuals, regardless of their condition or disability. Her understanding and accumulated knowledge also allows her to be adaptable and apply her knowledge to other areas of physiotherapy including Elderly Care, gait re-education and general postural/mobility problems.

She currently works for the NHS on a part-time basis providing specialised postural management prescription and advice. This also runs alongside her work with the Motor Neurone Association and Headway Brain Injury Association, Second Chance.

When she is not working, Victoria enjoys spending time with family and friends, and in particular enjoys long walks with her four-legged friend. She professes to enjoy DIY but in fairness will admit to regretting the ideas at a later date!

Kat Sellers

Physiotherapy Assistant and Sports Massage Therapist (Leeds)

Acutely interested in human biology and kinesiology, and the balance between physical and mental health, Kat set the wheels in motion for a career change in 2016. Knowing that she would like to remain working directly with people and promote the benefits of an active lifestyle and time spent outdoors, she qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist in Spring 2018. She is also returning to University in September 2018, to complete a 3-year BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy.

Kat achieved a Merit in her ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy, which covered Anatomy and Physiology, Manual Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation, allowing her to assess and perform treatment for individual injuries. Injury rehabilitation, whether from sporting activity or lifestyle, really interests Kat and she seeks to promote injury prevention and healthy, active lifestyles wherever possible.

Kat is extremely passionate about the outdoors and is an active Kayaker, Canoeist, Climber and Hill Walker (for which her dog Kali is always in tow!). She hopes to train for her Mountain Leader Award in 2019. Kat complements the vigorous outdoor lifestyle by practising Pilates and yoga and is planning to complete her Pilates qualifications in the future. Any free time is spent reading or cooking.

Kat joined the PEAK team in July 2018 where she currently splits her role. She works as part of our specialist Adult Neuro-Physiotherapy (Yorkshire Neuro Physiotherapy) and Paediatric (Yorkshire Children’s Physiotherapy) teams, working within a community setting (land-based or hydrotherapy treatment sessions) as a Physiotherapy Assistant, when a vital second pair of hands is required.

She also works as part of the PEAK Sports Massage team where she runs a busy clinic from our clinic in Leeds city centre. Welcome on board Kat!
