Dr Theresa Kinnersley
I began my professional life as a Registered Nurse working within neurology and neuro-rehabilitation for many years. In 2002 however I came across Conductive Education as a ‘novel’ form of adult rehabilitation. This ‘discovery’ took me to Birmingham where I completed the BA (Hons) in Conductive Education and qualified as a Conductor in 2005. I have worked at NICE Centre for Movement Disorders since qualifying, working initially in the Adults Department and now in the Training Department where I am involved in the running, and delivery of both Undergraduate and Post-Graduate education programmes. My area of professional interest and expertise relates to Professional Development, in particular the creation of opportunities for conductors to develop their own learning and exploration. I am a Committee Member of the UK Professional Conductor Association (PCA) and am very pleased to represent the UK at the ECA Committee.
