"Excellent experience. [Harley Street]"

Excellent experience. Total confidence in Sarah. She is approaching my problem from several different angles. Also very happy with efficient and cheerful receptionist [Nicole].

"…it is evident that Libby only selects the very best in the field"

I have been a patient of ESPH Harley Street since 2008, after having been referred to ESPH’s Elizabeth (Libby) Sharp via a specialist. I have had a number of musculoskeletal issues over the years due to my hypermobility. Libby has been of invaluable help and has made such a big difference to my life, that I do not know what I would do without her, and am forever grateful for the original referral to her. Sometimes I only require 3 sessions, and at other times, more. On the occasions where I have required more, it has only been through the fact that I’ve left my issue for so long that a longer treatment has been required –  which Libby has always so correctly advised not to leave so long until I visit! I completely trust Libby’s advice and treatment. She brings over 40 years’ worth of experience and knowledge, having also worked with premiership footballers (as I’ve seen for myself whilst in the waiting room!), dancers and athletes amongst others. Having been to other physiotherapists before, it is very evident that Libby’s expertise stands above the rest. After taking the appropriate amount of time evaluating you by asking you all the right questions and understanding your pain level, she will usually use a combination of therapies including MET (muscle energy technique) and deep tissue manipulation, but will also provide you with ‘homework’ exercises to continue your therapy at work/home.

On a personal level, Libby is simply a pleasure work with. She has a wonderful personal style which would make anyone feel like they are in the best hands in the field (rightly so), and it is evident that Libby has been at this profession for the long term because she genuinely cares. I only wish that every medical practitioner/physician could take a leaf out of Libby’s book – the world would be a better place and a healthier one too! If Libby feels that an extra few minutes are required for your consultation time, she will not think twice about doing so, and as a patient, I always feel that the consultation is definitely worth it. I have tried other physios in the past, but I can now see how Libby has gained the reputation for being one of the best in the field. In addition, it is evident that Libby only selects the very best in the field for other staff at the practise. Together with physiotherapy, the practise also provides other therapies that complement physiotherapy, such as pilates classes, sports massage and a podiatry service. I have also in the past been a regular at the pilates classes, which are run by Jo Bingham, who is an absolute star to learn from. Patient, caring, professional and all with a sense of humour and positive energy that will make you return and explore the world of pilates. There is also a massage therapist that I visit regularly called Gail Cameron, who always does the magical job of alleviating my pain and keeping me happy and doing what I love best –  playing tennis! I would strongly recommend this practise and Libby Sharp and her team to anyone, and have already recommended her to friends and family.

Amisha, patient of ESPH Harley Street since 2008

"Sarah was very… thorough,… I would not hesitate to contact her…"

Sarah was very punctual, thorough, friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate to contact her again in future for advice.

"I can now walk and sit with ease…"

I have been in pain for many years with my back through work. I have tried several physios and osteopaths in my local area to no avail. Knowing that Harley Street was the place to go when you were serious about any medical condition being sorted out I found these guys there. I can now walk and sit with ease (something i haven’t been able to do for a long time). They have also recommended exercises to do at home which are helping a great deal. Thanks everyone at Elizabeth Sharp.

"I’d never seen a physio before coming here, but the work they have done for my back has been excellent."

Great staff. I’d never seen a physio before coming here, but the work they have done for my back has been excellent. The receptionist is also very polite and helpful.
