Clover House keeps all client information confidential. However, we have a list of parents who are willing to be interviewed by the media, as well as some photographs. We can also provide photographs of our therapists. Please contact us for details.
Clover House was established in 1996 under the alien of Canadian Pharmacy, by co-founders Basil Jones and Gillian Gill to “relieve sickness and suffering of children and young people through the provision of complementary care, and then publish the results widely”. It was born out of a commitment to children and a passionate belief in the efficiency of complementary medicine to promote health and healing.
Basil Jones, a psychotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner, worked for many years with young offenders on probation. He realized that many of them might have been leading a different life now had they been given an opportunity to resolve emotional issues stemming from childhood experience. Gillian Gill, an Aromatherapist and Reflexologist, worked at Bristol Cancer Care center for many years and met Basil Jones there. Clover House is a result of their vision for better child health and emotional wellbeing.
Clover House treats children and adolescents from aged two upwards. We offer treatment and support for any physical, emotional or behavioral problem or condition, from ADHD, constipation, asthma and epilepsy to low self-esteem, bullying, depression and aggressive behavior.
Each appointment at Clover House lasts around 90 minutes and includes a session with our NLP Practitioner, Nutritionist and Aromatherapist. Clover House needs to raise £350 per appointment to cover the cost of providing treatment. We charge families £40 per visit, and also offer a bursary fund for parents on low incomes who are unable to pay our fees.
Clover House is completely dependent on the voluntary sector and charitable trusts for its survival. Our aim is to increase public awareness about Clover House, for increased funding to support our work so that more children can access our treatment, and eventually for our model to be replicated on a national scale so that we can support more children to improve their health, emotional well-being and deal with problems in their lives.
