Welcome to ArthritisFirst

As an established Chartered physiotherapist, I specialise in tailor-made exercise classes in the Emsworth, Chichester and Havant area.

I have 35 years of physiotherapy experience with the last 30 years spent in rehabilitation and arthritis management.  I was diagnosed with arthritis in my teens and I know from personal experience how the pain and stiffness of arthritis can affect our everyday lives and how exercise can improve these symptoms. I have devised a variety of exercises that increase strength and mobility and improve posture and balance. Why not give it a go with a free Taster Class.


Face to Face Arthritis Exercise Classes will resume on October 5th

Arthritis Exercise ClassesYou will still be able to join one of my exercise classes in the comfort of your own home using the video conferencing platform called zoom on Tuesday mornings at 0955.

Most of the exercises involve sitting but if you are able to, there will be a chance to exercise for a short time in standing.  All ages and abilities are catered for and I am offering a free taster class to see if it suits your needs.  Do give me a call to discuss the classes further.   


“I began arthritis exercise classes with Juliette in March this year. Immediately, I could see the benefit and started going twice a week. Three months later I am much more flexible and able to do things I have not been able to do for years such as moisturising my feet, putting on shoes, and standing for longer periods. My balance is much improved and I feel steadier on my feet. It’s great being with people who have the same physical difficulties and not feel any pressure because I can’t do things as well as others.”
