“When I met Cherie I felt like I’d finally found the teacher for me. In only one session a week I quickly saw a change in both my energy levels and muscle tone. Cherie’s classes are dynamic and leave you feeling like you’ve had a good work out. I can’t recommend her enough and owe the return of my waist to her!”

Jemma Forte

Russell Lissack

Lead Guitarist of Bloc Party


“I had suffered stomach problems and IBS on and off for years. The nutritionist at The Putney Clinic designed a 12-week food plan for me to follow. It was easier to follow than I thought and the results were amazing. Now 2 years on, I can control how I feel much better. I would highly recommended.”


Graphic Designer

“My daughter is doing really well now after her cranial osteopathy sessions at The Putney Clinic. I am certain that she would not be as well as she is without Aude’s help. She has been a real godsend.”

Natasha Harris

“Over the years The Putney Clinic has managed my aches and pains to the extent that I am now many years older but participating in much more strenuous and extreme events – I could not do this without the on-going maintenance and support of Clive and his team. Thank you.”

Justin Neagle

Elite Recreational Triathlete


“A fabulous hypnotherapy session. We concentrated on relaxation and visualisation techniques to help me through hospital treatments I have had. It was very useful and I’ve been putting the techniques into practice. Thank you!”

Nicky Sheridan


“I have been recommending Adrian Dilworth to my patients for many years and have always been impressed with his professionalism. The patients’ have reported very good feedback and have benefited from his treatments. I am very happy to continue recommending Adrian in the future.”

Dr Frank Auty BM.BS MRCGP

GP Principal, SW London


“I went to see Tom Lowes suffering from foot pain that prevented me from running. Tom suspected tendonosis and subsequent X-rays and scans confirmed the accuracy of his diagnosis. Tom devised a treatment and rehabilitation plan that has enabled me to resume running without any pain in my foot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

Tom Nock


“After experiencing an injury close to an important Ironman event, Clive helped me get back to health and training. I went from not being able to run 6 weeks before the event to posting an Ironman PB and sub 3-hour marathon.”

Aaron Burby

Elite-level Triathlete, USA


“I’m not sure what massage magic you do, but I managed to run the London Marathon in under 4 hours! I shall be singing your praises and recommending your practice. Huge thanks again.”

Amelia Campbell-Walter


“I came to physiotherapy due to recurring ITBS issues whilst training for the marathon. The pain in my knees was causing me considerable issues and preventing me from running properly. Dermot took the time to explain things to me in simple terms and he understood my aim was to get well and fit in time for the marathon. I still do the exercises he gave me almost daily and now enjoy pain-free long distance runs!. I’m so happy to be able to run without the constant aching in my knees! Oh and completing my first ever marathon of course in a time of 4 hours and 17 minutes.”

Jess Harris


“Before my treatment life was a daily struggle against pain and immobility. My first treatment with Dermot was brilliant. His positive attitude helped more than he can know. He is the reason I can walk without pain or discomfort again, and – thanks to his help and exercises – I may run again one day. Dermot has given me back my confidence and his treatment has put me back in control of my life.”

Joey Hawkins


“I was in a lot of pain before treatment. I couldn’t move properly or do all the things I love doing. I was worried that I’d never recover from a recurring injury, and nervous about pushing myself and making things worse. However, Dermot has been amazing! He explained everything about my injury clearly, so that I could understand what was happening. He made me feel so confident that things would get better. He devised a plan of exercise so that the injury gradually healed and I could start doing things again. I now know how to manage my injury and it is reassuring to know that Dermot is there if I need help. I can now play tennis for 2 hours, when – a few months ago – I couldn’t even play for 5 minutes! Thank you Dermot!”

Marion Serre


“Dermot fixed my foot problem, Plantar Fasciitis. He was friendly and knowledgeable and explained my symptoms and treatment clearly. I was ready to play tennis again after 4 sessions and hopefully won’t be seeing Dermot again anytime soon! Thanks Dermot.”

Ben, Putney


“Dermot was brilliant – I had a pain in my lower back that was so deep I couldn’t properly describe where it was. At the first session he pinpointed it exactly and, at the second session, he figured out exactly how to fix it. By the third session I was done. He is friendly, chatty, knowledgeable and is able to explain complex problems clearly in a completely unpatronising way. Highly recommended!”
