Fast access to supportive therapies

Our primary care therapies range across physiotherapy, psychology and psychotherapy, as well as dietitian services. These services can be accessed by patients directly, but are also used to provide a more holistic primary care service to patients, whether self-paying or as part of a corporate healthcare package.

Physiotherapy

Our primary care physiotherapy service can help in the treatment of:

  • sports injuries
  • common sprains and strains
  • spinal conditions causing backache, sciatica and headaches

Preventing recurrent injuries

We also provide preventative training advice and rehabilitative exercises are given to minimise risk of recurrent injury. We work with patients to develop a personalised treatment plan which can include:

  • an initial assessment lasting approximately 30 minutes
  • detailed history of the current injury and any relevant past history
  • active movement and manual testing procedures leading to a diagnosis
  • full explanation of the diagnosis
  • recommendation and a course of treatment devised using specialised physiotherapy techniques

Physiotherapy treatments

Once we have assessed the problem, we can look to employ a number of specialised physiotherapy treatments including:

  • manual manipulation (hands-on pressure to mobilise joints and soft tissue)
  • soft tissue techniques (massage and friction to promote healing)
  • exercise and stretching (including clinical Pilates-style and stability ball exercises)
  • thermal and non-thermal ultrasound (with or without heat to decrease stiffness, pain and muscle spasm, or stimulation of tissue regeneration)
  • acupuncture
  • low level laser therapy or LLLT (application of red or near infrared light waves to injuries to improve wound and soft tissue injuries
  • gait analysis (treadmill-based assessment of your walking style)

Psychology services

We have a team of highly skilled and experienced psychologists and psychotherapists who have been carefully selected for their excellence in patient work. Each therapist takes time to fully understand an individual’s difficulties before tailoring a treatment programme to meet their specific needs — rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. There are therapists with different specialisms in all areas of mental health, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD and addictions; and we are able to match patients to therapists who best suit their requirements. Our key focus is on ensuring we develop an excellent therapeutic relationship with our patients to allow them to feel safe in the process of change and to achieve their full potential.

Psychotherapy services

We offer brief and longer term therapy with individuals and couples, using the following evidence-based models of therapy:

  • cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • rational emotive behavioural therapy (REBT)
  • psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • eye movement desensitisation reprocessing (EMDR)

All therapists within our team are bound by a professional code of ethics and belong to their relevant professional body. And all are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Dietitian services

Today, we all face a significant amount of conflicting and contradictory information about nutrition and its impact on health. Determining the right nutritional choices for you can be made easier with a Registered Dietitian offering you up-to-date nutrition information personalised to you.

Why should I see a dietitian?

Medical experts recommend individuals follow a healthy diet, maintain an ideal body weight, and exercise to help prevent the onset or progression of disease. If you have a personal or family history of heart disease, diabetes, cancer or obesity, or if you are concerned about your overall health, then you may want to meet with a dietitian for an individualised nutritional assessment.

Dietitians can be trusted to give evidence-based and scientifically-proven information about optimising nutrition to promote health.
