We don’t treat diseases…we treat people

We see patients independently but we also consult with one another because a team of minds are better than one. So you can have a second and third opinion about your treatment right at the start. This saves you time, money and stress. And it means that when you book an appointment with one of our doctors, you may also receive acupuncture, Chinese herbs and many more.

A fantastic place to work and your reputation is second to none.

I would trust anyone who works there

Vena Ramphal, London

In a city where many health practitioners describe themselves as holistic, I'd say that Stefan's work is truly, and unusually, holistic - treating every aspect of a person.

Charlotte Martin, London

Totally feel like a new person today - another one of your treatments changed my life.

NG, Dublin

I’ve never had such a thorough or compassionate health assessment and I’m still a bit blown away by how it felt to be communicated with in this careful and respectful way.

Stephanie Alexander-Jinks, London

After just a few weeks I have never felt healthier or happier. I wish I had come to you years ago but am glad I have now!

Provocative Therapy: It can be fun

I had a lot of fun in those sessions, I felt they were very enjoyable - the lightness and laughter of it made touching on uncomfortable and painful issues easier, and the benevolence you bring to the process (aka Unconditional Positive Regard) was palpable.  I could see how the strange mental-emotional convolutions that happen when experiencing the inner friction set up by the provocations would over time promote real change.

Stephanie, Teddington

We came to see Dr Downing when our son Matthew was seriously unwell aged 10 with an unspecified post viral fatigue syndrome. Our GP had not been able to reassure us or provide us with anything other than advice to rest and it would pass. We were desperate when Matthew was unable to get out of bed and seemed to be going downhill. Dr Downing reacted immediately with a series of blood tests and vitamin infusions . It took two sessions but Matthew stabilised and started to eat and drink. Over the next two months, his condition improved and he was able to go back to school. It has been nearly three years since those dark months and Matthew has grown into a very tall, handsome 14 year old who has not been ill once - not even a cold!.
