Coffs Neuro Physio
Experienced, dedicated and passionate Neuro and Vestibular Physiotherapists, helping people with neurological and vestibular conditions and complex disability needs
Neuro Physiotherapy Coffs Harbour
We are dedicated to helping people improve their everyday physical skills, health and well-being following a stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, or after diagnosis of a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neuron Disease. We are also experienced in treating people with vertigo, dizziness and vestibular dysfunction.
Whilst working in Sydney, founder Amanda O’Neill recognised the burden placed on people in her hometown of having to travel long distances to access these skilled services. Her move back to establish Coffs Neuro Physio in 2016 came from her drive to alleviate this burden.
The Coffs Neuro team began operation from the West High Street clinic. Due to the growth of our team and the growing need to provide dedicated Neuro and Vestibular physio services, we moved to a larger premises at Coffs Harbour Jetty in September 2023.
Our aim is to help people become the absolute best version of themselves, whatever their condition or situation. We do this through having skilled and passionate therapists, ensuring client-focused and research-based therapy. Ours is a team of professionals who really care. We understand the complexities of your condition and needs, and provide appropriate and safe rehab for your best outcomes. Therapy can be provided where it is needed most – in the clinic, at home and in the community.
Please Note: CNP has now relocated to newly renovated clinic and gym at 1/24 Edgar St Coffs Harbour Jetty

Meet your physios
Amanda is the founder and director of Coffs Neuro Physio, and a Neurological and Vestibular Physiotherapist. She developed her early passion for Neuro Physio during her university studies and ever since identified the lack of access to experienced, skilled private neuro physiotherapy across the Mid North Coast. The long distances that people with neurological conditions had to travel to access these services became more evident while working in Sydney at the largest private practice provider of neurological rehabilitation in New South Wales. The tyranny of distance and costs too often resulting in cessation of treatment and earlier than ideal. And so, Amanda returned to her home town Coffs Harbour to relieve this burden, bringing with her many years of experience in the field and a truck load of enthusiasm. Amanda has also completed extensive training in Vestibular Physiotherapy and has opened up this arm to Coffs Neuro Physio.
Amanda’s passion and dedication are hard to miss. She thrives on bringing a smile to the faces of her clients and encourages them to work hard towards achieving their goals. Her aim is to ensure that every person with a neurological condition no longer misses out on the opportunity to maximize their potential and live the best life they possibly can.
Outside of work, you will find Amanda somewhere in the ocean, most of time with her surfboard. Nothing beats a morning surf or dunk in the ocean at sunrise before an enjoyable day in the office!
Helena brings spark and a variety in knowledge to our team, having completed her initial Physiotherapy studies over in Sweden. During her studies, she developed a keen interest in working with the neurological population particularly when a close relative was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Upon graduation, she commenced working in a ‘live-in’ rehabilitation center in a rural area of Sweden, where she worked with a diverse range of clients including neurological, orthopedic, dementia and palliative. Helena eventually returned to the motherland Australia and completed her masters in physiotherapy at the University of Queensland before moving to Coffs Harbour.
Helena is not afraid of a challenge, which may stem from her days in the military before physiotherapy. She loves working with clients with complex disabilities including working alongside occupational therapists in the prescription, adjustment and fitting of wheelchairs, equipment and garments to improve function and quality of life. She believes everyone deserves to live their best lives and she strives to achieve this with all her clients.

Ivan has a particular interest in treating dizziness and vertigo related to cervical spine conditions, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and post-concussion syndrome.
In addition to experience working with clients with stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders. Ivan is also an experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapist which helps him identify physical barriers to improvement and work with clients to overcome them. He focuses on providing clear education and establishing meaningful goals with clients.
Ivan completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with first class honors at The University of Sydney. He returned to the mid north coast after living in Sydney and the Blue Mountains. When not busy at work, you will find Ivan down the beach or wrangling his three cats.
