Heidi McCarthy BSc(hons), PGDip, HCPCreg

Clinic Director Orthotist and Shockwave Therapist

Heidi is an orthotist with over 20 years experience.
She specialises in sports biomechanics and paediatrics, and is a qualified Shockwave therapist.

“ The disciplines of orthotics and shockwave therapy are such a good pairing. I can prescribe shockwave therapy to treat chronic tendon problems, then orthotics for prevention of recurrence. My dream when setting up clinic with Andrew, was to gather brilliant health care professionals under the same roof, and create a centre of excellence. I can refer my clients to professionals I know and trust, and feel confident that my clients are in good hands.”

Heather Bear MBACP Dip. Adlerian Couns. IIP, Dip VTCT, IIHHT

Counsellor

I am an Adlerian trained counsellor/psychotherapist who works alongside clients who feel stuck; at a low point; would like to see some change; or just need to talk.
We hear labels such as depression, low self-esteem, OCD, BPD, addiction, bereavement, PTSD and trauma. But what do these mean for the individual? By allowing a safe space, issues can be explored together, and some insight can lead to action and change.
My experience for the last few years has been working with New Pathways; a rape crisis and sexual abuse centre. Also trained with Babette Rothschild in the subject of trauma and somatic impact.
ACTION + INSIGHT = CHANGE (Alfred Adler)

Chiropractor

Matthew is a proud graduate from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic gaining a MChiro 5 year masters degree qualification. He spent many years working in the building industry sustaining various wear and tear injuries which led him to see a chiropractor himself. Not only did chiropractic help him recover quicker but also gave him the knowledge to prevent further injuries. This ultimately led him to want to be part of this profession and help people like he was helped himself!
