About the Medical Studios

Welcome to my dream clinic, one which has been many years in the making. I am a busy mother of two with decades of experience as a traditional family GP both at home and abroad. I have been lucky enough to enjoy a career in general practice spanning almost three decades, primarily in Scotland but also covering many parts of the globe from Bermuda to Barlinnie, Cumbernauld to Kenya, Mallorca to Melbourne and Nepal to the Netherlands! 

For many years I have dreamed of opening a clinic where a team of experts gathered together under one roof with the intention of offering a patient centred, bespoke approach to health and wellbeing, to empower patients to thrive and live their best life.

 

As a native Glaswegian I was proud to be given a solid educational foundation from Glasgow University Medical School. I subsequently completed my GP training in 1996 and have worked in the NHS for around 30 years, over a decade of which was spent as a GP principal in Springburn with links to the Medical School where I am still an honorary Senior Lecturer. I have also enjoyed woking as a family doctor for over five years in The Shetland Isles and The Central belt of Scotland . …all of which has paved the way for a career enriched with wonderful experiences and the opportunity to learn from so many inspirational teachers all over the world who have taught me that every individual has their own road to health and helped reinforce the belief that good quality , authentic patient care is vital to the journey towards optimal health and wellbeing of mind body and spirit.

Over the many years studying various aspects of integrative medicine I have always endeavoured to put my patients at the heart of every consultation and am endlessly enthusiastic about maintaining the joy of human connection and encouraging health optimisation for all. It was only after experiencing significant health issues both personally and within the family that I began to explore how we could learn to optimise our own health through various means …using the simplest of lifestyle measures such as sleeping well, eating well, doing more of what brings us joy, spending time in nature, and importantly learning to breathe correctly improving mind body connection and improving oxygenation to every cell in the body thus promoting healing and wellbeing on a cellular level.

 

As a passionate musician,I have a special interest in the role creative arts - in particular the voice, have to play in health and wellbeing.I work with the voice on a number of levels - to increase confidence and combat anxiety, to strengthen mind body connection, to improve breathing techniques and, using VA Aquera software, to assess and improve emotional wellbeing patterns in the body.

 

I have additional special interest in energy medicine,  gut/brain health and the gut microbiome.

 

Never did I think that we would manage to birth a brand new clinic and in some ways, a brand new concept in healthcare while we were in the midst of a global pandemic …and yet with a great deal of help from some very special people, Westbourne Medical Studios was born. I am excited to combine my skills with a whole team of like minded professionals in a warm and nurturing environment with the aim of providing a 360o approach to patient care - tranquil professional clinical rooms adjacent to a yoga and creative arts studio, a family demonstration kitchen for lifestyle and nutritional medicine , a relaxation room for massage therapies and a meditation garden

 

 

We are each of us unique and therefore no individual journey towards healing is the same 

We are delighted to share our services with you and look forward very much to meeting you when you visit Westbourne Medical Studios.
