About Douglas

After working in London for a year, Doug decided to move to Yorkshire in 1999 for a better quality of life, and he started to work with Amittai Sevi at the Good Health Centre in Leeds. Since that time Doug has helped develop the practice and has enjoyed working with a wide variety of patients.

Doug has worked with musicians and singers and administrative staff from Opera North. He has treated dancers from dance companies based in Leeds such as Phoenix Dance and RJC, in addition to independent professional dancers and students from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

Over the course of 19 years at the Good Health Centre, Doug has worked with patients of all ages, from babies to the not-so-young, specialising in musculoskeletal pain and postural problems, employing structural and cranial osteopathic techniques, dry needling and appropriate exercise prescription to facilitate recovery from injury and optimise the health of his patients.

Doug is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council, and as such is committed to undertaking Continuing Professional Development courses to further his knowledge and skills. Doug is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and he is a specialist provider for most health insurers.

In his spare time, Doug likes to relax with his family, cycle, walk the dog, and play the guitar.

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.

I've been struggling with persistent pain in top of the hamstring/glute, for nearly one year. I tried the standard physio, rest, DYI solutions and strengthening exercises and none of them helped me completely. Eventually I went to the clinic and discussed the problem with the osteopath and in 3 sessions my leg is nearly 100% healthy again. Really impressive outcome and great service

I've been coming to the Good Health Centre on and off for my back issues for years. They offer so many different treatments. For me, I am currently going for a sciatica issue and Yanis is a magician! I travel from London to see him as he always gets to the root of the problem and does his upmost to assist and sort out the issue as well as updating me on everything he is doing and why. For me, he is fantastic and one of the reasons I come back time and time again when I need to. He is a savior to me!

I’ve been a client at The Good Health Clinic for a year since Josh McCollum.moved there from a local clinic to where I live. I had no hesitation at all in following him there which involves me undertaking a 30 mile round journey. I first met Josh in August 2021 following a major break in my ankle. He has been an absolutely vital to me as I built up a trustworthy group of therapists to enable my safe rehabilitation. I can’t recommend Josh enough for his kindness, understanding, care and expertise in aiding my recovery and now helping to maintain my recovery. Josh, I can never ever thank you enough 🤩

Good Health Centre has had a huge impact on my career as a dancer. I visit Josh regularly for osteopathy treatment to support my physical training and to improve my overall awareness of my body. It has really helped me to overcome and keep on top of injuries and any pains which come with the demands of a physically challenging job. I couldn’t recommend Josh and the Good Health Centre enough!
