About Ioannis

I started my journey in healthcare as an assistant physiotherapist and since then I have never looked back. My appetite for continuous development led me to Osteopathy and then my special interest in sports, cultivated the idea of progressing into the Sports and Exercise Medicine (MSc) course at Leeds Beckett University soon after I graduated from Osteopathy.

That has developed me as a person and practitioner introducing me to great cities and wonderful communities in Thessaloniki, Swansea, Rochdale, Doncaster, and Leeds. My treatment approach is patient-centred and tailored to holistically manage any given injury/condition.

I then graduated from Swansea University with a Masters degree in Osteopathy. My passion for sport led me to pursue a second Masters degree, MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine, which I completed at Leeds Beckett University. One of my career aspirations is to work with elite level athletes to help them accomplish their goals.

With prior studies in the field of physiotherapy, and my advanced level degree in Osteopathy, I have set the foundation to offer a holistic treatment approach within a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. My interests lie in patients with chronic pain, spinal problems, sporting injuries and rehabilitation.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling and exploring new places.

I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and I am member of the Institute of Osteopathy (IO).

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!
