Long Covid?

I am treating an increasing number of patients  suffering the chronic  symptoms of Long Covid.

Symptoms include:

  • extreme tiredness (fatigue)
  • shortness of breath.
  • chest pain or tightness.
  • problems with memory and concentration (“brain fog”)
  • difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
  • heart palpitations.
  • dizziness.
  • pins and needles.

If you are unlucky enough to be suffering from these symptoms, you may find that acupuncture can substantially help in your recovery.

“Martin has been looking after me and my family for 25 years. I tried other osteopaths when he was in Australia and am so glad he is back. Simply nobody else will do”. Simon S.

Joanna Leytham


I am an experienced Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor. I believe in treating the client holistically focusing on therapeutic remedy, maintenance, future prevention and encouraging client self-awareness. I have been interested in holistic therapies most of my life. They have helped me with ailments including stress and anxiety. It is from a place of personal experience I authentically and enthusiastically bring these therapies to my clients.

I specialise in Ashtanga Yoga, a vigorous and dynamic Yoga style, synchronising flowing movements with the breath. I also teach Hatha and Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Yoga and Massage both work towards healing and balancing the body and calming the mind.I am ITEC and CPD qualified in various Massage treatments: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy (NMT), Myofascial Release, Aromatherapy, Raindrop and Vitaflex Technique, Pregnancy, Relaxation, Thai Body Massage, Thai Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Facials. I specialise in Deep Tissue Massage with Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release, which I find very effective to release chronic muscle tension; to oxygenate and hydrate areas; to allow the spine and joints to relax into alignment and to increase the pliability and mobility of the body. I use Neal’s Yard remedies or Young Living essential oils for all the treatments I offer, which are natural, organic and ethical. I tend to tailor treatments relating to the client’s needs and the results they would like so mostly offer personalised treatments combining various techniques. The benefits to Massage therapy are abundant such as absolute relaxation, relief of tensions and pain, increased circulation, increased elasticity of the skin, flexibility and lightness of the body and harmonising of the physiology of the body.

Cas Bourne-Jones, Psychotherapist

I am very pleased to join The Lansdown Clinic as a Psychotherapist in Training and am able to offer affordable psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and welcoming environment.

Coming from a humanistic and integrative perspective enables me to work with you in offering a compassionate and accepting therapy in order that we can explore hidden, buried or distressing experiences. Sometimes we meet difficult challenges and relationships in our lives, which could form unhealthy blocks to our normal happy and healthy living.

We may –

  • have buried or unwanted feelings that keep resurfacing causing pain and suffering
  • be struggling in coming to terms with loss and grief
  • have a desire to understand our anger, frustration or fear
  • be facing depression or anxiety which has become too much to bear

People explore therapy for many different reasons, which are unique to the individual. Therapy can help in rebuilding new pathways to knowing ourselves. I am offering an empathic listening space for you to be heard, my presence on a safe and trusting journey and my commitment to issues around connection and identity.

Psychotherapy can be long term and open ended or time limited – this is a personal decision and we can work together on deciding what best suits your needs. I believe that when one can find trust and dialogue in the therapeutic relationship, there is an opportunity for creativity and healing.

Whilst in private practice, I am studying for an MA in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy at BCPC, Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling. BCPC is a professional body, which is accredited by UKCP, United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, of which I am also a trainee member. I am legally bound in following their Codes of Ethics and Practice.

Are you overwhelmed by pressures of life, stuck in a rut, repeating negative patterns, facing Trauma, health scare or trying to find a way out of depression, anxiety or dark thoughts?

Maybe you are having relationship difficulties, suffering bereavement, feeling isolated, lonely or simply want to take charge of your life and make changes to the way you think and relate to family, friends and colleagues.

This can bring up challenging questions or memories too unsettling to think about on your own. By meeting together on a regular basis in the safety of my comfortable consulting room, we can attempt to confront your fears and find ways to approach life’s obstacles in a manageable way, kindling the potential for positive change.

Previous to becoming a psychotherapist I worked in the creative industry and ran my own company. This experience gave me an interest in issues around Stress, Anger, Anxiety, Failure, Shame, Creative and motivational blocks; unhealthy co-dependent relationships and living with difference such as spiritual, religious, sexuality or cultural difference in our personal life and at work.

I am a Psychotherapist in my senior year of training with the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling studying for a MA in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy.

I have over 4 years work experience with private clients.

Contact me to arrange an initial meeting. This is an opportunity for us to find out more about each other and decide on the best path to take.

Sarah Durrant, Reflexologist, BSc HONS, MSc, MAR

Sarah trained as a reflexologist at the Bath Reflexology Centre, she then

received specialist training in fertility and conception reflexology with Barbara Scott, a leading holistic fertility expert.

Sarah initially worked in a scientific field; graduating in Biomedical Science and gaining an MSc in Medical Diagnostics. She has a wealth of scientific experience working in clinical hospital laboratories as well as research and development in the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries.

Reflexology is a gentle and relaxing complementary therapy which aids the body in eliminating toxins and boosting the immune system whilst restoring energy and balance. Reflex areas in the feet, as well as hands, correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body. Stimulation of these specific points can affect the corresponding area and help to alleviate problem areas and restore balance in the body. Reflexology may help relieve any condition, Sarah has found the following respond particularly well to this form of treatment:

  • Stress
  • Digestive disorders such as IBS/constipation
  • Sleep disorders
  • Back/Neck/Shoulder pain
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Menstrual problems

As well as providing general reflexology, Sarah specialises in fertility and conception. Since having her three children she has become very aware of the difficulties couples can have conceiving and the many issues surrounding fertility and pregnancy.

Sarah uses her specialist knowledge and experience to tailor treatments to individual needs.

Reproductive Reflexology is exceptionally beneficial for:

  • Helping regulate menstrual cycles
  • Supporting your body during ovulation and egg implantation
  • Supporting women alongside IVF
  • Maintaining good health during pregnancy
  • Helping your body prepare for labour
