Beth & Ngaire

HandSpark was formed by Beth Taylor and Ngaire Turnbull to help ignite therapists' burgeoning passion for Hand Therapy. While both keeping up a busy clinical load in their own practice in Darwin, Australia, they both share a common desire to guide therapists new to the field of hand therapy.

Beth has been working in Hand Therapy for over 30 years. Her passion began early in her physiotherapy career working in inspiring teams, planting in her the desire to train, share and mentor therapists wanting to grow in hand therapy. Her highlight however, was meeting Paul Brand who inspired her to pursue hand therapy. Beth's work has taken her all over Australia, to the United States as well as to the Pacific. 

Ngaire has worked in this field for 15 years and always remembers the incredible therapists that mentored and guided her in her early days in the profession. This fuels her desire to provide the same supportive, practical and up to date training to others with the same passion for Hand Therapy. 

Together, Beth & Ngaire bring their skills, experience and authenticity together forming a dynamic team. Their aim is to provide training that’s real, practical and accessible for anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge in hand therapy.
