Toria founded STEPS with Jules and heads up the clinical team as our Clinical Director.

She trained at St Mary’s School of Physiotherapy in London, qualifying in 1993 and has over 20 years of experience working in a variety of specialities and settings, both NHS and private.

Toria began work at Northwick Park Hospital London, completing her junior rotational posts before relocating to Sheffield where she spent the next decade working at two private hospitals, gaining experience in orthopaedics, neurology, surgery and women’s health. She then moved on to work at The Park Hospital, Nottingham and the Alexandra Hospital, Manchester, continuing to build on this experience but also to develop new skills in palliative care and oncology rehabilitation.

On returning to Sheffield 11 years ago, she worked at St Luke’s Hospice where acquired more specialist skills, such as lymphoedema management, with a particular interested in rehabilitating patients recovering from cancer treatments.

While setting up STEPS, she worked for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals in their Day Rehabilitation Unit, elderly rehab wards, intermediate care units and within the community with a very varied caseload including patients with Parkinson’s Disease, neurological conditions, stroke survivors, orthopaedic injuries, falls and complex multiple conditions.

Toria has always relished the challenge of running her own business, researching ideas with her sister Jules in the creation of the vision that is now STEPS. She now plays out her passion for the best possible quality treatment and client care and cascades these values and philosophies throughout her team. Her other ambition was to design and build the best therapy gym on the planet….almost achieved!)

Toria has 3 children, 2 sons and a daughter. She enjoys going to the gym, walking in the beautiful Sheffield countryside and hiding somewhere with a good book and a cup of Earl Grey.

Weakness: Talking too much! (according to her sister)
