WHAT WE DO
We aim to improve lives through the use of cutting edge, drug-free neuroplastic therapies. The Key Clinic was launched in 2015 by psychologist, Sarah Warley, to help unlock the potential of children who are struggling with learning and behavioural problems, either at home or at school.
These children might already have been labelled as dyslexic, dyspraxic, ADD, ADHD, autistic, Asperger’s, or as having delayed speech and language, slow processing or sensory processing problems. Perhaps their parents have a hunch that they are not performing as they could be. They are often smart and capable, but they cannot access or express that intelligence because something is literally ‘blocking’ their way. They are left feeling different from their classmates – frustrated and helpless. Frequently, they talk of being ‘stupid’, and they maybe have low self-esteem, anxiety issues or even depression. Where behavioural problems are more extreme, the impact on siblings and parents can also be significant.
Our experience is that, while labels like dyslexia and ADHD are used to describe a cluster of symptoms, little is done to try to understand why the symptom is there in the first place. Our aim, at The Key Clinic, is to explore the causes of these symptoms and treat the underlying problem without the use of drugs. Problems, which once were deemed ‘for life’, can be overcome, provided the right stimulation – or key – is given to the brain.

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
The Key Clinic uses a multi-disciplinary, integrated approach – based on a cutting edge understanding of neuroscience – to find the right key to unlock your child’s potential. There are four main keys, which we currently use: Neurodevelopmental movement (INPP), Cranial Osteopathy, Nutrient Therapy and Auditory Therapy (Berard Auditory Integration Training).
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
Each key is based on our ever-increasing understanding of neuroplasticity and epigenetics. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to form new neural connections and be influenced by the environment. New research in the field of neuroscience has found that the brain is not static and unchangeable, but a dynamic, flexible organ, capable of rewiring itself, building new connections and evolving every minute of every day. This means that problems, which once were deemed ‘for life’, can be overcome, provided the right stimulation – or key – is provided to the brain.
NEWS FLASH Due to increasing demand from parents, we now also offer effective treatment programmes for teenagers and adults with depression, anxiety, vertigo, agrophobia, driving phobias, poor concentration, stutters and dyslexia/dyspraxia.
