McClelland Centre services
The McClelland Centre offers a range of services to staff, students and the wider community.
Nutritional Therapy Clinic
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy that uses the Functional Medicine approach and evidence - based research to support clients with a range of factors including diet, nutrition, lifestyle and eating behaviours along with many other factors. This service adopts an approach where Nutritional Science is reviewed from a cellular level to establish possible root causes that may be linked to presenting symptoms.
How the Nutritional Therapy Clinic works
In the clinic we will:
- Personalise a nutrition and lifestyle programme for you
- Assess and identify nutritional imbalances and help you rectify them
- Work with you to support your body to maintain or improve health
The students are able to provide you with a friendly and confidential service. Students work to BANT professional practice standards and CNHC code of conduct ethics and performance and are fully supervised by qualified and registered nutritional therapists.
A minimum of two consultations will be needed
This will last approximately one hour and thirty minutes during which time the student therapist will discuss your symptoms or concerns and will negotiate with your personalised nutritional recommendations for you to implement over the following few weeks.
This will last approximately forty-five minutes to an hour during which time your health will be reviewed, and further recommendations may be suggested depending on your progress
To find out more about what happens at appointments please see our dedicated Nutritional Therapy pages.
If you are interested in an appointment please complete the contact sheet and return to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent a comprehensive health questionnaire and a diet diary to complete. Once we have received this, a student therapist will contact you. The questionnaire is long as it provides us with your health details and therefore enables us to research your case and personalise your recommendations. Please give us as much information as you can.
Appointments are currently available on Wednesdays and Fridays.

How can Physiotherapy help?
The aim of Physiotherapy is to improve mobility or function, reduce pain, for someone who is affected by injury, illness, or disability. This in turn, can reduce the risk of injury or illness in the future.
Student Physiotherapists will complete an assessment through discussion and physical examination. Following this they will create a treatment plan, with acknowledgement to your wishes, and personalised goals.
When is Physiotherapy useful?
Physiotherapists can be helpful for people of all ages, and abilities. Their specialised skills can be useful for those suffering with problems associated with:
- Bones, joints and soft tissue – such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain or sports injuries
- Brain or nervous system – this includes neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke
- Heart – such as rehabilitation following a heart attack
- Lungs – such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or Bronchiectasis to aid with sputum management and chest clearance and breathlessness management techniques
- Management of other long-term conditions – this includes management of chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia
What do student Physiotherapists do?
Some of the main approaches used by physiotherapists include:
- Advice and education – Physiotherapists can give general advice about things that can affect your daily lives. This could include advice regarding posture correction, or fatigue management, for example.
- Tailored exercise and physical activity advice – Exercises may be recommended to improve your general health and mobility, and to stretch or strengthen specific parts of your body, based on your personalised goals.
- Manual therapy – where the physiotherapist uses their hands to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement of the body. Examples of this include mobilisations and soft-tissue massage.
