World class assessments process 

Comprehensive, Personalised, Precise

We deliver the world’s most comprehensive physical health and mental wellness assessment, diagnostic and screening programme, curated by a hand-picked team of professionals.



We can’t treat what we can’t measure- data driven health assessment and treatment

We benchmark and record every element of a client’s functioning, wellbeing and health, utilising a battery of assessments. This enables us to understand their current level of functioning and the extent of the challenges they face. We examine how current difficulties are impacting their cognitive functioning by completing our brain health assessment.



Establish a therapeutic relationship, with focus and time given to you

We provide each client the time and attention they deserve to ensure we achieve a positive treatment outcome and experience. In advance of starting the assessment process the client will have the opportunity to meet and acquaint themselves with their personal team and develop a therapeutic relationship. The clinical team is time rich and can see the client as often as necessary to ensure they feel safe, informed and at ease.

DNA & Genomic Testing

We have at our disposal the widest variety of DNA and genetic tests globally. 


We provide precision diagnostics and reports on every aspect of a client’s physiological, nutritional, performance and psychological genetic profile. This enables us to modify and optimise environmental stressors and situational factors. 


We determine liability towards:

  • Understand your risk towards addictive behaviour or non-substance behaviours

  • Neurotransmitter imbalance

  • Body metabolising rates

  • Developing Alzheimers Dementia

  • Susceptibility to systemic imbalances and chronic health conditions

  • Key genes and variants involved in regulating Phase I, II and III liver detoxification pathways

  • How your genes impact your response to food, your microbiome diversity, nutrient need, metabolism, appetite (leptin), inflammation and circadian clocks and blood pressure.


Heart Rate Variability

Heart rate variability (HRV) means the variation in time between consecutive heartbeats.  It provides advance performance analytics for stress, recovery , sleep quality and exercise. 

Our 72 hour analysis reveals what affects wellbeing and performance during work, leisure and sleep. It will also provide data to help manage stress, enhance and quanitiy recovery and how to exercise correctly. 


Neurofeedback & Neuro engineering

Sanctum Neuroengineering® optimising your brain for Peak Performance


Brain mapping is a means to measure brain function. It has become a primary tool in neuroscience. QEEGs are used in research centres all over the world to study ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, depression and bipolar disorder, PTSD, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, and emotional conditions of every sort. It is a recognised diagnostic tool for some medical conditions in Germany and the USA.


Our leading-edge neurofeedback brain training programmes harness the brain’s capacity for change, training your mind so you can operate at your peak. You will gain the ability to strengthen your cognitive weaknesses, to re-route thought patterns and break emotional habits which can be life-changing.


We can change attitudes, beliefs, emotional states, and behaviour; all by using the power of neuroplasticity. Neurofeedback is a way to train brain activity; it is biofeedback for the brain.


Using sensors on the scalp, we can measure and monitor this activity. With brain analysis software we can identify which specific activity is giving rise to your symptoms.  With imaging, we are able to train deep brain areas; entire networks (brain highways), coherence (connectivity), processing speed (phase) and more; all crucial factors in optimal brain functioning.


Once we know the areas of concern, we can create a training plan to help draw your brain into a comfortable, efficient state. During a neurofeedback session, we compare what your brain is actually doing to what you'd like it to be doing.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine describes the practice of preventing and treating disease by providing the brain and body with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body, i.e. amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, macronutrients, as well as other naturally occurring metabolically active substances. For our body and brain to function properly, we require optimal amounts of such substances. With our modern lifestyle, from eating habits to stress or lack of physical activity and due to food intolerances, the bio-chemistry shows significant imbalances and deficits. These can be identified by comprehensive laboratory tests, and then can be restored.


Personal Chef

We have our own in-house chefs, led by Head Chef Pete, who create and prepare personalised macronutrient-controlled meals as guided by the comprehensive nutritional assessment. Each meal is designed and prepared with the individual in mind. It is made bespoke to their requirements, in their home. 


We will create a customised menu plan based on our client’s dietary needs, likes and dislikes. On the cooking day/days we will procure the highest quality ingredients before cooking for the client.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy, also known as Equine-Assisted Therapy, is a treatment that includes equine activities and/or an equine environment in order to promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth in persons suffering from neurodevelopmental, psychological, psychiatric and addiction issues.  Since the horses have similar behaviours with humans, such as social and responsive behaviours, it is easy for the patients to create a connection with the horse.


Equine Therapy has been proven to assist clients in developing the following skills: confidence, self-efficacy, self-concept, communication, trust, perspective, decreased isolation, self-acceptance, impulse control, social skills, boundaries, spiritual connection, and more.


Each client’s interaction with the horse allows a trained therapist to observe their behaviour, emotional reaction and thought patterns in order to establish healthy relationships with themselves, friends, and family.


Spiritual Exploration

The term ‘spiritual exploration’ covers a variety of topics and a broad range of options for clients to consider. Predominately, the purpose of all exploratory work is to help clients find a compassionate connection with themselves and discover a renewed sense of purpose.


Throughout the treatment process each client is on a personal journey of self-discovery. Through actively encouraging open mindedness and honest reflection we provide a safe space to evaluate different options for spiritual development and growth.


We guide our clients through focussed education, workshops and active participation in self-help services such as 12 Step groups, Smart Recovery, Al Anon / ACOA, Acceptance and commitment (ACT). We will also guide families through the process. 


Discovering a new way of life that will support positive change and connection with others is vitally important. Through blending therapeutic interventions with other practices such as Yoga, medication, breathworks will offer a broad spectrum of proven services that will compliment and support long term recovery and self-awareness.
