Just a quick reminder that if you are trying to do anything regarding health, whether it be healing from illness, losing weight, or even just starting healthier eating patterns, that progress and/or healing is not linear. There are going to be bumps in the road, and it may take longer then expected to achieve a certain goal. But just because you are not healing or progressing as fast as you would like, does not mean you are not healing or progressing at all. Sometimes I get super frustrated with my body because I would like it to be able to do more then it currently can, but then I remind myself that there was a time when I couldnt do much at all except lie in bed most of the day. Its persistance, caring and patience that gets you where you would like to be. So be kind to your body, and just take a look at how far you have come , because you may be suprised at the results. Never give up and keep going, you can do this!
So, who are we?
We’re the husband and wife team behind The London Wellbeing Clinic. We met in 2011 whilst both working as Psychotherapists in the NHS. Whilst we loved our jobs, we both felt that there could be so much more preventative work done of mental health that wasn’t being carried out.
In 2015 we decided to backpack around the world for a year, and we truly learned so much about ourselves. We saw various different religious practices, and wellbeing rituals. We witnessed communities coming together and sharing, and we also saw communities divided. We had the privilege of making amazing friends, and the experience of kind souls helping us when we were lost or stuck.
We both noticed that it had taken us around 4 months to unwind from work and hadn’t realised how burned out we were. Coming back, we both decided to make a change - we wanted to work in jobs that we loved and we could give more to. We both went part time as well as working privately. Natalie took a role as a Psychotherapist in the London Fire Brigade and James worked in an Eating Disorders Clinic with the NHS. Whilst we both loved our jobs, our world changed when we had a baby.
We now have a little one of our own and, to be honest, becoming parents turned our world upside down. The impact of bringing a little person in to the world made us more determined to try and make it a better place. We made the hard decision to let go of our fantastic jobs and go all in with our own business.
Our dream was to create a service that offered a different approach, and The London Wellbeing Clinic was created to encompass this. We began Workshops, Coaching, online services, walk and talk therapy, mindfulness walking, corporate services, but most importantly we wanted it all to be Psychotherapist-led, which means we treat everyone as an individual, with a unique history and view of the world.
With our hearts firmly in the belief that Wellbeing and healing can come from a multitude of practices, we are expanding our network to include a range of holistic practitioners with various approaches that we can refer our clients to.
This is our story.
