What our clients say about us

Beatrice Emmanouil

‘’It is very exciting to finally have an rTMS centre in Oxfordshire! I had the pleasure to go to the centre and see the state-of-the-art facilities and chat about the different types of therapies offered; I was very impressed I think it is a centre that grows out of the fantastic academic and clinical backgrounds of the two leads, and which fits in so well into Oxdford’s recipe of clinical and academic excellence. A gem!‘’
