About Louise

I believe that keeping the body working well can help improve physical, mental and general health. My aim is to ease tissues towards better function via a variety of treatment techniques ranging from stronger mechanical, rhythmical, inhibition work to more gentle cranial, visceral, functional approaches.

Which options we select depends on what your body needs and responds to best. Some patients may need to undress, some remain clothed. Some like silence, others like to chat. Each individual patient experiences a tailored approach to match their unique requirements.

I have 3 lively, affectionate children to keep me busy in my colourful, messy home but in any quiet moments my preference is to read, practice yoga and do some crafting. I like to keep things simple. I don’t write about myself in the third person. And my favourite colour is blue.

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!
