The Plane Tree was opened in December 2011 by John Mallinder, Osteopath, and Martina Leeven, Counselling Psychologist, whose vision it was to develop a centre that recognises and promotes the integrated health of our mind and our body.
John qualified as an Osteopath in 1998 and has worked on the Roman Road Bethnal Green since 2001. Early in his practice he came to understand that the physical health of his patients is tied to their emotional wellbeing, and has sought to acknowledge and communicate this in his work.
Martina has been working as a therapist since 2005 and became chartered as a psychologist in 2008. She gained her clinical experience in working with issues of the body, in particular health, disability, and trauma in a number of settings. She has sought to address the embodied experience of emotional distress with particular interest in therapies such as EMDR and mindfulness approaches.
