Meg joined us in May 2021 and we are delighted to have her as part of our team. She informs she was keen to work with VMA for the unique blend of individualised therapy bedded in physiology and strong evidence-base and the close working relationship with ENT, neurology and respiratory specialists. She has a person-centred approach to therapy and enjoys client coaching and supporting people to find their unique path to achieve their goals. She also has a particular interest in mindfulness-based stress reduction. This has already proven valuable for many clients in helping navigate throat troubles, with competing and often influencing stressors, particularly during these challenging times.
