Iain J. McGregor

D.O, Associate Osteopath

From an early age Iain wanted to pursue a career in medicine, but after seeing an Osteopath in practice in his later teenage years he was amazed at what an Osteopath could see and do, and so diversified to pursue Osteopathy as a career. After 4 years studying at The British School of Osteopathy in London he graduated in 1988 and achieved a Merit in Osteopathic Technique.

He began his career at the Oldhall Clinic in Gatley and studied Cranial Osteopathy, then in 1991 moved to practice at Tomlinson’s and has worked in Oldham and Rochdale for the last 21 years. Outside of work he has a varied interest in sport and has participated in Squash, Football,Windsurfing, Golf and has an L.T.A coaching qualification in Tennis. In his professional approach he strives to achieve the highest standards in patient care and general wellbeing.

In clinical practice Iain has come across a wide variety of patient presentations and specializes in general spinal care,sports injuries and many other complaints including headaches,whiplash and shoulder injuries. He still finds great reward in maintaining a swift patient recovery and this is as paramount as it has always been after 24 years in practice.

Tracey Porter

Counsellor MBACP

I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2009. During this time I have dealt with a vast number of different issues i.e. anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, relationships, addiction loss of self-confidence, self-worth and self-esteem to name a few.

When coming to counselling, a person doesn’t always know what they want to talk about or they may be suffering some difficulties that are having a negative impact on their life.

I truly believe that a person can achieve the positive changes in their life that they want. Counselling is a process where I use my skills to help a person to get a better understanding of oneself, achieve personal growth, empower changes that you want which can therefore lead to a more fulfilling personal life.

I offer an empathic, non-judgemental and confidential counselling service in a safe setting.
