Our Story

Aleksandra noticed when Sophia was just 6 months old that her development was delayed. At 2 years old she was diagnosed with Global Developmental Delay, and her parents were told Sophia would probably never walk. Aleksandra decided to take her to Poland for a year of intensive therapies, including Vojta, Sensory Integration and Speech Therapy. Seeing the therapies available in Poland, Aleks came back to the U.K. with the idea of opening Sophia's House - a centre where many therapies were accessible in one place. At the age of 9, Sophia was finally diagnosed with CTNNB1 syndrome - an incredibly rare condition - and she continues to flourish with the help of her amazing family, therapists, carers and school.

Therapies We Offer

Hippotherapy (Equine Therapy)

Hippotherapy is a method of psychomotor rehabilitation that takes place with the participation of horses. It can be used at any age, but it is used especially in the rehabilitation of children and adolescents. For the youngest, contact with a horse is often an irreplaceable source of help, so it is worth learning about the possibilities and benefits of communing with these animals. Thanks to hippotherapy, it may be easier for patients to overcome their fears, build bonds, express their emotions and communicate with the world. Rehabilitation through hippotherapy helps not only children struggling with autism, Down syndrome or cerebral palsy, but also with abnormal gait patterns or after amputations.
