We are very fortunate to have regular specialist urology consultant clinics at the practice.
Mr Richard Hindley, Mr Tim Nedas and Mr Amr Emara are Consultant Urologists at the North Hampshire Hospital.
Their NHS clinics are held every other week at Old Basing Health Centre.
There are a number of very significant benefits from having consultant clinics in the Health Centre.
- Ease and speed of the referral process. We can actually give you the appointment when we see you in the Surgery.
- The consultation is within familiar surroundings.
- Dialogue between the Consultant and your GP is easier and quicker and can lead to more effective and prompt treatment.
We have a full range of in-house professional private therapists available at the practice. Fees apply for these therapists and treatment is not covered by the NHS.
Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Life Coach & Confident Childbirth Practitioner - Carole Samuda
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool using the best from a number of schools of thought to provide a bespoke, personalised service to those who use it. It has it's basis in Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), but also uses techniques from CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Positive Psychology, amongst other approaches. It is, a blend of the best of many types of therapies, used to support the changes you want to make. There is no 'one size fits all'. We are all different and we engage with our issues in an individual way. To give you a simple example. If I ask you to look at a colour and tell me what you see - you may say blue. I may agree that it is blue, but I cannot know that the blue you see and the blue I see are the same. It is often the same with emotions. I might say I am angry, you may be too - but it doesn't necessarily mean it is the same for both of us. Therefore, when you book an appointment with me, the first thing we will do is to help us both to understand what is going on for you. That way, we can better help you to unpick the problem and re-wire it as a solution.
Problems such as: Anxiety, Compulsive Obsessive Behaviour, OCD,Pain Control, IBS, Chronic Fatigue, Stop Smoking, Fear of flying, Fear of Dentists, Phobias, Fear of Spiders and Creepy Crawlies, Nervousness, Exam Nerves, Public Speaking, Special Occasion Nerves, Panic ttacks,Childbirth, Fibromyalgia, ME - Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Shyness, Blushing, Mindfulness and many more.

Homeopath - Claire French LLSCH RSHom
Homeopathy: As a Classical Homeopath I follow the original principles and philosophy created by the founder of Homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann. I have also completed thorough training in an advanced system of Homeopathy called the Sensation Method. I am a fully registered and insured member of the Society of Homeopaths which has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Nutritional Therapy: As more and more people are finding certain foods may be linked to their symptoms (e.g. gluten, dairy, refined sugar), there is a growing demand for advice and support about dietary changes and nutritional requirements to help specific health conditions, food sensitivities and intolerances. Having completed additional training in Nutritional Therapy, I am qualified to assess and guide patients on their diet, hydration & lifestyle. I incorporate nutritional advice within my existing consultations.
Nutritional Deficiencies & Food Sensitivity Testing: I have also completed the TASK (The Association of Systematic Kinesiologists) approved Foundation Course in Kinesiology. This enables me to incorporate Systematic Kinesiology within my practice to identify nutritional requirements your body requires, and which foods are negatively impacting the body (e.g. food sensitivity testing).
Homeopathy Consultations (including nutritional advice and food sensitivity testing) are available in Odiham Health Centre every Friday.

Therapeutic Counselling - Anne-Christina Hitchin
People seek counselling for different reasons. Difficulties from the past, painful experiences in the present or fears about the future can all hinder our ability to feel part of and enjoy life and find satisfaction. If life is difficult at the moment and you would like to talk things through with someone who won't judge you, make assumptions or offer opinions, someone who is prepared to come alongside you and help you find a way through and out of your difficulties, then counselling may be for you.
In counselling you will be supported in expressing your emotions in your own way and finding your own solutions to your problems. The process of sorting out and untangling feelings and worries can enable you to see things with more clarity and empower you to make changes. Counselling can also help you come to terms with and accept what cannot be changed. But you don't have to have extensive problems to have counselling. You may just want to explore where you are at in your life, increase your self awareness and engage in personal growth.
I am an integrative Counsellor, which means I draw on a number of different counselling theories/approaches. This makes it easier to be flexible and work in a way that suits the individual. In counselling we will work together to find the right track for you. At the very centre of the service I offer is a therapeutic relationship, which is based on respect, trust, confidentiality, equality and honesty. I offer both short term and open ended therapy.
If any of what you have read here about counselling has captured your attention, I would be delighted to meet with you for an initial no obligation session. This would give you a chance to decide whether counselling is the right thing for you and whether you feel comfortable with me.
50 minute appointments are £45.00
Face to face appointments are available at Odiham Health Centre every Thursday morning. Please call Anne-Christina on: 07917 716379 for more information or to book an appointment.
