“I work holistically with my patients to reduce their pain and improve their quality of life and general wellbeing. I look at the whole person, including how you as the patient want to use your body and live your own life.
The main goal is to get you back on your feet and enjoying life again without feeling held back or shackled by your pain.
I strive to help you understand why pain has effected you and what can be done to relieve and keep it at bay. I aim to educate all my patients so that they can make simple changes to improve their quality of life. Exercises and lifestyle tips are often used to improve the quality of care and treatment benefit that you gain.”

Michael is personable, considerate and very empathic, Michael’s work manages people in pain and distress. Having had various jobs before retraining as an osteopath (including performance and the body), Michael has acquired an understanding of the patient’s need to get back to health and wellbeing as soon as possible.
Michael takes a structural approach to osteopathy, with techniques including soft tissue work, fascial release, articulation and postural advice, but takes into account the holistic aspects of health and wellbeing such as lifestyle and stress management.
At times in our lives we all could use some space to reflect on our personal issues and relationships.
Counselling offers an opportunity to examine some of the difficulties we face in life, helping us to gain insight and understanding and to move forward with greater clarity. It can help you to reflect on the past and recognise its impact on the present. It can also help you to recognise patterns in your thinking and behaviour that may hold you back from who you want to be. Counselling may also provide you with support whilst you are going through times of change or facing particular challenges.
At the heart of counselling is the relationship between the client and counsellor. They build a trusting, non-judgemental working relationship, giving the client the opportunity to share thoughts and feelings openly within a confidential, safe environment. The counselling process is unique to each individual. Sometimes it raises difficult or painful feelings which can be worked through and explored with the counsellor.
Finding a counsellor can be a daunting experience. I always suggest an introductory session – this is an opportunity for you to meet me personally and to see if I am the right therapist for you. I will tell you more about the way I work and what to expect. I will also ask you to tell me about your background and what is bringing you to counselling. At the end of the session you are free to go home and think about whether you would like to book ongoing sessions, otherwise we can go ahead and arrange a first session there and then if you would like to.
