Respiratory Care

Our dedicated respiratory therapist carries out thorough assessments and formulates and delivers expert treatment plans on an individual basis for a variety of respiratory conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • bronchiectasis
  • dysfunctional breathing patterns
  • asthma
  • non-specific chronic cough problems
  • recurrent chest infections and interstitial lung disease such as pulmonary fibrosis.

Treatments can include:

  • breathing pattern re-education in order to normalise breathing patterns and reduce hyperventilation
  • breathlessness and anxiety management
  • Active Cycle of Breathing Technique (ACBT) for sputum clearance
  • teaching of sputum clearance device adjuncts
  • cough suppression techniques
  • personalised home exercise programmes to maximise exercise capacity
  • postural advice
  • Buteyko Breathing Technique (BBT). Our therapist has a Diploma in this highly effective technique.

Our Respiratory Therapist has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She uses her vast knowledge of exercise prescription to provide a holistic approach to improving her patient's overall health and psychological wellbeing. Her goal is to enable her patients to better manage their long-term condition, which can on occasion involve planning for the last year of their life. Although not able to prescribe medication, our therapist is able to advise and make recommendations to her patients' GP regarding their medication. She is able to teach inhaler technique and suggest suitable devices to improve the efficacy of inhaled drug delivery. Her expertise allows patients with respiratory conditions to build confidence, feel empowered and in control of their symptoms. This promotes self-management and improves quality of life and fitness for people affected by respiratory disease.

What is Buteyko?

Buteyko (pronounced Bu-tay-ko) is a breathing technique which helps to manage conditions such as anxiety, asthma, COPD, Cough, hyperventilation, panic attacks, rhinitis, sinusitis and snoring. It is a structured and unique exercise programme, focussing on improving breathing patterns and reducing breathing rates. It is recognised in the NICE guidelines for the management of asthma. Our Respiratory therapist is also now qualified to teach Buteyko Breathing technique teachers. If this is of interest to you please contact

I contacted Synergy following surgery to remove a brain tumour that had left me with a weakness in my left leg and no movement at all in my left foot. Over 2/3 months following the exercise plan designed for me, the improvement and range of movement I've achieved has been beyond all of my expectations. I loved the fact that the exercises could be easily incorporated into my every day life and even included some elements of Wii Fit :) I would highly recommend Synergy to anyone needing neuro physio.
