“If I wasn’t at Willow, I wouldn’t be the person I am, and I wouldn’t be the Chiropractor I am. They’ve helped me massively – not just professionally but also personally. Their coaching is a lot more than working on a technique or tweaking things for a consultation. It goes a lot deeper than that. It’s more about removing the barriers that stop us from being the person and the chiropractor we want to be.”
Dr Dane Jacks, Little Stoke Clinic
Professional development is only half of the story.
Our coaches are trained to help you recognise and remove inner stumbling blocks that stand in the way of your progress. We use simple techniques and practices to gently guide you in the direction of a happier life with more success, purpose and balance. This includes:
- Meditation training.
- Setting intentions for practice success.
- Goal setting for all areas of life.
- Learning to overcome the fears that all chiropractors experience.
- Participation in “Vital Experience” weekends.
"Being part of the wider Willow team has been amazing. Having run my own small practice for 11 years before coming here, responsible for every aspect of the day to day running of the clinic, the support from everyone in the team has been just phenomenal.
In the few months we've been here, I feel I have learnt more about chiropractic and my own capabilities than in the decade before.
We're looking forward to exploring more of the greater Bristol area and all it has to offer once we're legally allowed to do so, but at the moment, our list of things to see is growing by the day!"
