Counselling can provide you with the opportunity to talk through issues and work with the counsellor to achieve some understanding and resolution to your problems or concerns. The main aim of counselling is to help the clients work towards a more satisfying and peaceful experience of life.
I aim to provide a secure place where you can feel heard, understood and accepted without feeling judged and where you can feel supported enough to explore painful and difficult thoughts and feelings.

Grace - Clinic Assistant
I originally started work at the Clinic as a temp but I enjoyed my time here so much that I decided to stay as a permanent member of the team. My main role within the Clinic is to help Louise maintain a smoothly run practice that delivers a high standard of service to all of its patients. So far I have been amazed to see the difference that Osteopathy can make to people’s lives and the importance of keeping a healthy spine.
I am an avid reader and cook but when I am not working at the Clinic I am kept busy as a guide leader for a local youth group, where I arrange fun (and sometimes disgusting) activities and trips for the girls. If that wasn’t enough, I own four lovely (energetic) dogs that I love taking for walks in the local woods and parks. I also love to go the Victoria and Albert Museum to explore the different exhibits that they hold.
