The Evolving Practice
I have worked in several clinics over the years, and am grateful to all the super practitioners I have come to know. In addition to working with those who share my therapeutic areas of homeopathy, coaching, NLP and hypnotherapy, I have also come to know some fantastic practitioners in other disciplines as a result, and it has been a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the many ways in which we can support our health and happiness.
Goodbye River Clinic
For the past 10 or so years I have been mostly based at River Clinic, a wonderful place to work from offering a tranquil space in the heart of Lewes. The riverside setting of River Clinic was a lovely space for developing my practice, and I really enjoyed and appreciated working with Simon and Michi, Louise and all the other practitioners.
However the redevelopment of the site meant River Clinic needed to relocate, and we found ourselves in slightly different setting, further out of the centre of town. And as the hypnotherapy side of my practice grew, I needed a quieter location to work from.
Why the Therapy Setting is Important?
In searching for a new clinic, I knew I had some core criteria to fulfil…
Ideally a quiet clinic in a tranquil setting, suitable for my own working style, and also for the benefit of my patients – when visiting a practitioner, it is important the setting feels welcoming, quiet and calm. Also on my list, was easy to get to and find, and ideally still in Lewes.
Although I’m planning to soon be offering Skype appointments – which will allow me to reach people outside Sussex (news on that coming soon!), I still am very much clinic-based as a practitioner, and that means having a therapeutic setting to help people explore, understand, & heal.
The Cliffe Clinic
I was in contact with Mandy Fischer, an osteopath who started the Cliffe Clinic in 2007. Situated in the heart of Cliffe in Lewes, Mandy has created a lovely and peaceful space, which is ideal for how I work in general… and especially helpful for hypnotherapy.
There are two very comfortable therapy rooms and a pleasant waiting room where you can sit and relax before your appointment, with books & magazines to peruse. It seemed more than ideal, so I decided to make the leap and go for it!
New Year, New Clinic
Having joined the Cliffe Clinic, I am excited to be back in the heart of Lewes. I am really enjoying being there and getting to know the lovely team of practitioners that work there.
The convenience of being in Cliffe is great for my patients. It is very easy to find, right on Cliffe High Street, with convenient parking nearby, and is also near to the station. Lansdown Health Store is also very conveniently just up the road.
I’m making use of both of the therapy rooms, one on Mondays, and the other on Wednesdays (I can’t decide which I like the most), they are both lovely spaces and very suitable for seeing patients.
As we move into 2017, I hope to be able to welcome you too at the Cliffe Clinic. Feel free to contact me to arrange a time to pop in and say hello, and let me know what you think. I look forward to seeing you there!
A New Year and a new clinic; perhaps in truth every day offers us the prospect of a new year and new opportunities to evolve into.
Note: Remember I’m also at Barns Green, and for those not in Sussex, I will shortly be offering Skype appointments.
