John Vesey 

I have been an Osteopath for 40 years and have a wealth of experience in treating people with a wide range of health issues. I have a passion for helping people rediscover their health and reach their full potential. I treat Adults, Babies, and Children. Although many people come for the resolution of pain in the body, my approach is often to address the psychological roots of distress while releasing the physical imbalances.

I use Cranial Osteopathy, Osteopathy, and Counselling.  Often talking through life experiences, stresses and shocks during an Osteopathic treatment can help release interlinked body and mind patterns. Patterns of  physical trauma  and emotional stress are held in the body and mind, so a Body to Mind and a Mind to Body approach work well. 

I see many people who have tried traditional approaches for chronic conditions, but are looking for new, more wholistic approach.

John Vesey Registered Osteopath and Counsellor

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that has been developing over more than 100 years.

It is a holistic approach, working with the structure and functions of the whole body 

and is applicable to adults of all ages, pregnant women, children and babies .




What to expect?

On your first visit (usually 1hour) a full case history and examination takes place and a diagnosis and treatment plan is made, usually followed by treatment.

Cranial Osteopathy (not just the head) is a key part of treatment, which has profound balancing effects on the mechanical structures of the body, including the fasciae, the central and autonomic nervous systems, viscera, circulatory, and lymphatic systems  and this is often deeply restorative and relaxing. People of all ages from birth onwards can benefit.

Visceral Osteopathy, a gentle rebalancing of position and movement of organs of the  body such as stomach, lungs or bowel helping them work more efficiently.


Our therapeutic approach is integrative and tailored to each person according to their needs.

What to expect?

We suggest an initial session to see if counselling or counselling psychology with us is the best option at this time and plan our approach, number of sessions and frequency etc.

Counselling is offered in a quiet, safe,supportive and confidential setting, in a gentle and non-judgmental way, over a number of weeks.

Together we explore and work through any issues you may have, such as stress, anxiety, depression, traumatic life events, loss and bereavement, relationship challenges, sleep disturbance, illness, etc.
