Harley Street is one of the most famous streets in London and is renowned as a hotspot for leading healthcare.
As such, we are proud to say that Vagus Wellbeing founder, Julie Pichler, is supporting a multidisciplinary team to provide the latest advances in holistic mental healthcare to Harley Street. Today, we thought we might share a little bit about Harley Street, its reputation for excellence and Julie’s work at this distinguished location.
A reputation for excellence
Harley Street, located in Central West London, has a long-standing reputation as a hub of private medical excellence.
This esteemed location attracts an ever-growing number of leading physicians, surgeons, dentists, holistic therapists and other medical practitioners. It is no exaggeration to say that, ultimately, nowhere else in the UK can boast such a high density of leading healthcare specialists operating in and around one specific area.
Dr Pablo Jeczmien Ltd
Nestled away on the infamous Harley Street lies the clinic of Dr. Pablo Jeczmien, a Consultant Psychiatrist working alongside a team of therapists to provide ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder assessments, and crucially supporting and providing therapy after an assessment has taken place. Often there is an overlap with common mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and OCD which also can be supported.
The practice adopts a holistic approach involving coaching, counselling, nutrition, sound and movement therapies that are bespoke to the individual’s needs. By working on both body and mind, we can improve resilience, coping strategies and introduce lifestyle interventions.
We are delighted to say that our very own Julie forms part of this team at Dr. Jeczmien’s clinic as a Nutritional Therapist, supporting adults with their biochemistry, eating patterns and choices which affect the brain and our behaviours, whilst Florence Gardam supports children and adolescents.
Nutritional therapy services
Her approach is holistic in nature, and is geared towards helping individuals to understand the body and the mind as one whole, with each mutually influencing the other. By caring for the body, Julie believes that we can nourish our brains and, as such, impact our mood and behaviour.
Food for the Mind
Through her work at the Harley Street clinic, Julie is committed to supporting individuals on their path to holistic wellness via her Food for the Mind plan. Using functional medicine principles, Julie believes we can access the root cause of imbalance in the body, rather than simply dealing with symptoms on the surface.
This three-month programme is designed to support the body's biochemistry and develop and establish routines around diet and self-care. The extended duration of the programme is intended to provide the necessary amount of contact time required to gradually introduce and implement changes, and notice the positive impact on physiology and behaviours.
Julie will work in partnership with any of the other physicians and therapists at the clinic that you are involved with in order to facilitate the provision of the very best possible care.
The Food for the Mind plan consists of:
Analysis of a health questionnaire and food diary, medicines and past history that could be affecting current symptoms
5 x 1 hour online consultations to be completed within 3 months from the first session (2-3 weeks apart)
5 x written health plans after each consultation
Recommendations for testing and supplementation (on a case-by-case basis)
10% discount on recommended supplements
