O'Sullivan's at Peasholm Complementary Health Clinic

51 Northstead Manor Dr, Scarborough YO12 6AF, UK – 01723 366747

My experience with Brendan has been amazing, when I first visited Brendan I was suffering from severe headaches, almost daily for 3 weeks. Within a single session I was completely pain free. I still use Brendan whenever bad headaches reappear, though due to the information he's given me on how to prevent them, these are significantly less often than they were. I have and will continue to recommend Brendan to anyone suffering with pain.

Alternative Medicine

Rudra Devi Ltd

Woodend Creative Centre, The Crescent, Scarborough YO11 2PW, UK – 01723 384508

I'd been consulting with Rudra and helping her grow her business, and being the consummate professional she is, she offered her services! The speed with which she gets to the root of your problem is impressive and the results so far have been lasting and pretty life changing. Finally, I'm free of the limiting beliefs I had that were holding me back and the work she's done with me so far has already paid off handsomely. Highly recommended.

I worked with Rudra Devi over a period of 3 months as I developed new treatment options for my clients. Rudra Devi was excellent at being able to help me consider all options, make suggestions and offered great support and advice as I made these changes. I would definitely recommend her as a coach.
