Welcome to Highgate Holistic Clinic
Complementary Health Centre
At Highgate Holistic Clinic, we are a team of complementary medicine practitioners who are passionate about what we do. We believe that sometimes modern medicine doesn’t offer a comprehensive enough approach to our health issues and too often only treats symptoms instead of root causes.
As human beings, we are more than our symptoms, our mind and body are intrinsically connected, and most of the time when we suffer from a specific issue, whether physical or emotional, there’s more to it than we think. It could involve our lifestyle, our stress levels, our emotional well-being etc. So in order to heal from physical and mental discomfort, or simply in order to improve our well-being we need to look at ourselves as a whole – not as different unrelated parts.
This is why at Highgate Holistic Clinic we offer a wide range of natural therapies practiced by highly qualified and experienced practitioners whose dedication and passion contributes to a holistic approach in healing. We all work together as a team to offer the best treatments to our clients. Each of us believe in the importance of finding the right approach and we don’t hesitate to refer you to one of our colleagues if we feel you would benefit more from their personal techniques.
The purpose of Highgate Holistic Clinic is to offer a one stop shop for health and well-being, where you’ll find everything you’re looking for. All our practitioners are fully insured and have been carefully selected to offer the best quality of services and a warm, welcoming and trustworthy environment.
We aim to offer a comprehensive range of holistic treatments to address any emotional and physical ailment via a gentle approach that respects the natural balance of the body.

Katerina is a fully qualified, professional Gestalt counsellor having trained at the prestigious Gestalt Centre in London, and is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Reg MBACP). She works one-to-one with adults in a GP surgery, private practice and universities and has worked extensively with charities including Samaritans and Mind, supporting people struggling with suicidal thoughts and young adults exiting the care system. Having spent more than 10 years in the journalism and creative arts industries also, she understands the cumulative effects of unconventional lifestyles and the vicarious and secondary trauma that can impact professionals exposed to harrowing stories. She works with a very wide range of issues, clinical or not, and is able to discuss these in consultation.
I recognise that the pursuit of counselling can be an overwhelming and stressful experience in confronting your emotions. There is a stigma in society attached to seeking help, and information isn’t easily accessible. There are two things that really matter when you seek out a counsellor or therapist:
1. How comfortable you feel with the therapist and
2. What happens in the therapy
I am a fully qualified, insured and professional counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling &amp; Psychotherapy (one of two main accrediting bodies for counselling). This means that as well as having completed an accredited training course, I adhere to a clear ethical code, which you can find here: http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/practitioners.
My style is welcoming and gentle. I use my intuition and instinct to get a sense of what’s happening for you. In our initial consultation together, we will explore what brings you to therapy, what your expectations are and whether we’re a right fit for each other. You are never under any obligation to book further sessions with me if you don’t wish to; My job as a Gestalt counsellor is to help raise your awareness of your coping strategies, your impact on others and to support you in living as true to yourself as possible. I support you in noticing entrenched patterns of thought and behaviour that may be limiting you. I encourage you to unlock your creativity and to take risks and experiment as a way of stepping away from the things that are upsetting you or others.
Gestalt is an effective way of getting to better understand how people view us and how we impact them. Through observing patterns in the therapy room, we can witness in the immediate present how we impact each other, and practise and experiment with ways of behaving and talking in a safely contained, confidential space without any fear of repercussions. Gestalt therapy can at times feel more experimental than other types of talking therapies. Depending on what comes up, we might use props and objects in the room, partake in visualisation exercises, work with dreams, use art, drawing, role-play, music or movement to explore feelings and even place those feelings in different locations in the room. Or we may just simply focus on talking. Where many talking therapies focus on what you say, Gestalt therapy takes into account your use of words, body language, bodily sensations and feelings as well as thoughts and emotions. Sessions can in some moments feel spontaneous, even at times playful; at other times, sessions may feel more reflective with dialogue between us. I respond to you and what you bring. There is a focus on the here-and-now experience where we use what comes up in the moment as a springboard for where the session will go. My intentions are to draw out insights and connections for you to reflect on – however I take the view that you are the expert in your own life and you are never forced to do anything you don’t want to do.
Ultimately, my aim is not to interpret what you do or say or to define who you are but to support you to define yourself and help you make sense of how you do things. I focus on raising your awareness of self and your way of relating, getting to the crux of underlying feelings and the core of who you are and what you want when you remove society’s expectations and messages out of the equation.

Physiotherapist, Osteopath, Healing therapist and Ayurvedic naturopathic firstname.lastname@example.org
Mélissa Laïmèche is a Physiotherapist, Osteopath, healing therapist and Ayurvedic naturopathic nutritionist.
She studied physiotherapy at the French Red Cross Training Institute in Bègles-Bordeaux, Osteopathy at the Franco-British Institute of Greater Montpellier, In Béziers, Reiki healing in Paris initially, then followed by energetic from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Avignon and finallyAyurvedic nutrition.
Her purely mechanical career during the first years of physiotherapy allowed her to understand the functioning of the body and to develop care protocols aligned with each individual's needs. The desire to go further in the reflection of body care prompted her to undergo osteopathic training.
Thanks to this combined training of 5 years, it allows her to approach the body with other tools, whether in pure structural, cranial methods or visceral techniques. Each session is adapted and listens to the person enabling a coherent work to be done.
Her personal life journey led her to integrate personal and spiritual development into her daily life, and led her to rethink her vision of care. Holistic management during care then becomes a primary goal to achieve. The healing and psycho-emotional aspect taking an important place during the sessions and being at the origin or being a major parameter for healing and wellness, Mélissa then naturally turned to the training “Therapist Unity”. This training provided her with tools for understanding the energetic and psycho-emotional aspect of the human being.
Co-manager of a paramedical health centre in Bordeaux, France, for more than 6 years, she decided to perfect her practice by joining a team of health professionals in London. Currently my practice is focused solely on holistic care. We are all unique beings with our own history. The care provided must take this specificity into account and must be able to hear and respond to a unique need for everyone.
You can arrange an energy osteopathy appointment. This care will listen to the energy cohesion of each organ and each structure.
The healing treatment sessions offered by Mélissa are based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I act on the 1800 acupuncture points to help your body regenerate and induce natural healing.The purpose of its sessions is to restore the vitality of your energy centres, also called chakras, your subtle bodies, your aura. For this, it will be realised, without contact, cleaning with the evacuation of blocked energies, a rebalancing and a realignment of what must be of your energy system. So that you are tired, anxious or in the middle of a life change, need to evolve, to heal wounds, to understand some of your mental or emotional functioning (the list is notexhaustive, for more details you can refer to the website: www.melissalaimeche.com energy care will be very helpful.
The problem of nutrition, related to the emotional and the mental, takes an important place in our life. Some want to lose weight, others have physical problems related to their diet and want to opt for better food hygiene in order to feel good in their body. Don’t we say the intestines are second brain? I then decided to also train myself in this direction to be able to bring specific keys to these issues. I chose the study of Ayurveda diet. This ancient medicine which also considers the individual in its entirety: the physical body, the psychic and emotional sphere and the energetic universe.
So, whether you want to consult for mechanical issues, for personalised support to get to know you, to regain an emotional and energetic balance or you want advice, you will find more precise information about my practice through the various services offered on my site.
