Founder, Managing Director & Advanced MSk Physiotherapist
BICESTER & CHELTENHAM
Steph is the inspiration, the passion and the driving force behind the Pea Green Physio but she is the first to admit that she could not have created such a home for healthy bodies and healing hands all on her own. The success of her business depended entirely on finding others who were highly qualified, but more importantly, who shared her belief that looking after people’s bodies also meant looking after people.

BICESTER & CHELTENHAM
Bringing catwalk glamour from the 1970s to the reception of the Pea Green offices, Serena has seen it all. From her days as a model to working for The Beatles in St. James’ Street she has many fab stories to tell (and probably a few that she won’t). In recent years, she prefers to spend her time engaged in far more serene, but no less rewarding, pastimes.
Having lived in Oxfordshire for the last twenty-five years, Serena has embraced her love of the countryside. She plays tennis, rides horses, climbs mountains and goes for the occasional bike ride when time allows. Her creative interests include making her garden look beautiful and making her food taste wonderful. As a trained Cordon Bleu chef, she loves cooking and entertaining at home.
While her cooking benefits the rest of the family and anyone who visits, the garden remains the domain of, Fifi Serena’s French Toy Poodle. She describes Fifi as a small dog with a big dog’s attitude and a whole lot of cheeky personality to match.
Working at Pea Green is the perfect role for Serena, where she can combine her interests in people, places, health and enjoyment of life each and every day.
From the snow-capped peaks of the French Alps to the tranquil waterways of the Canal du Midi, Lauren has worked in some lovely places in some very interesting, and sometimes dull, roles!
Having moved back from France in 2012 Lauren was keen to continue on her quest of wellbeing. She has been practicing yoga for a number of years and thanks yoga, meditation and mindfulness for the positive effects it has on her physical and mental wellness; so much so that she qualified as a yoga teacher in 2014. Lauren first join Pea Green as a yoga teacher back in 2016. However, she is not here just as a yoga teacher anymore. Lauren joined us in June 2018 as our Practice Manager.
Since qualifying as a yoga teacher, and having encounter a few life obstacles along the way, Lauren quickly realised just how important the work life balance is; that work has to be just as fulfilling as home life is. So, with all the stars aligned she came to join us!
Lauren loves her role at Pea Green and genuinely looks forward to coming to work and spending endless hour with her colleagues. Her life motto is tow fold; surround yourself with people who inspire you – at home and at work and be nice to people on the way as you may meet them on the way down.
