Gareth Riddy Movement Therapist | Reviews

REVIEWS

“Gareth reprogrammed my sleep a few weeks ago and I have slept soundly since.

 

I have trained with him over the last few years and can honestly say he is dedicated, truly knowledgable, a wonderful person to spur you on when you feel like giving up, honest, a true genius, funny as and has an ever growing bag of tricks. He is the man!”


Linda Bloor, Senior Account Manager​

“Where do I start? I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury around 6 weeks ago (Dec 2016). I suffered a severe concussion and subsequently was diagnosed with Post Concussive Syndrome. On session 1, Gareth's therapy methods were unlike anything I had ever read about or seen. I came in feeling one way about my life and symptoms, then left feeling totally different!

As a result of the PCS diagnosis, I am left with many symptoms but Gareth went through and highlighted issues that I haven't even put down to my accident were as a direct result of PCS.

The below are all being changed by PCS:

- Sleep patterns
- Digestive performance
- Sight 
- Hearing
- Motivation 
- Mood
- Pain 
- Body shape
- Oral chemistry
- Balance 
- Co-ordination

After one session my whole outlook has changed. I have signed up for a longer more intense course of treatment. This treatment will develop and adjust as I move along my recovery.

Gareth loves his job, is professional, genuine and I can't recommend him any more highly. The best money I have spent in ......forever!”​

"Gareth is an immense wealth of knowledge. I do a lot of research myself but find much of it goes over my head. Gareth is extremely good at making extremely hard information much more accessible to the average lay person! He will very often give you small nuggets of advice which can make huge differences to your training or general wellness. Even after 5 years of training with Gareth I'm always learning new things.

In this day and age the best thing about Gareth as a trainer is that he is not one of those preachy, attention seeking, social media narcissists who makes the entire session about them and tries to tell you how to live your day to day life.

Do it soon and you will not be disappointed. This is a trainer who is as professional as they come but can relax the more he gets to know you. He doesn’t get involved in the silliness of the industry and the session truly will be all about you. If you are clear in your goals and communicate these clearly then Gareth will get you there if you commit. Be ready for his sense of humour.

He is a trainer who is very much dedicated to bettering his level of knowledge. This being the case he will always have new routines and activities for you to try. You will never feel like you are plateauing with Gareth (hence why I have been with him for close to 5 years now). Since being with Gareth I have won 6 golds and 3 silvers at international level WKU kickboxing events as well as many successes in domestic national events".

“Having seen numerous physio's about an ongoing knee problem, I wasn't getting the results I wanted. It was still sore and would often hinder my training, I then damaged my MCL and pulled my groin. After yet another course of physio that didn't work, I decided to seek help from Gareth.

He was able to spot the problem in our first session and from there we worked together for 8 weeks to get me back into shape. This finished in July and I have been pain free and training happily since then.

Gareth's approach is a mix of granular detail and fun. He has a brilliant sense of humour and is extremely detail focused, I never knew proper form was so difficult!

I would recommend Gareth to anyone, from elite athlete to someone who needs to improve their day to day movement.

 

Thanks Gareth”.​

"Gareth had been working on my foot and leg for a few weeks to help with my pain, for the first time in 5 years I had reduced pain in foot and leg, better than medication.

 

I have tried a lot of stuff to reduce pain, even a type of electroshock therapy (don't ever recommend this). 


I highly recommend anyone with pain to see Gareth and try this treatment you will not be disappointed".


Alfie Wright, Para Powerlifter at British Weightlifting - Current English Champion

"Having had problems with my sleep pattern for a year or so Gareth said he could help me so after thinking if this would work i went along. What he does is amazing and very clever. I went to see him about two weeks ago and since then I have slept so well and am no longer waking up half way through the night.

 

Gareth has also helped with my back pain and again I am not in constant pain every day. His work is very clever and he takes his time to listen to you and work out what the cause of the problem is.

 

I would definitely recommend anyone to see him".


Kirsty Ross

"This was one of the strangest, most enlightening experiences!

 

I have felt a reduction in the intensity of my pain that I've battled for 6 years, in only one session.

 

Time will tell but thank you for your time and for instilling such confidence in me".


Lynne Rogers, Pilates Instructor

"Not only has a huge understanding of movement therapy, but is one of the most likeable personality I have ever met!

I would highly recommend Gareth as a trainer, he has helped motivate me and always sees the positivity of life, not to mention most of my best quotes are stolen from him".


Bill Thorpe, Graphic Designer/Videomaker

"This man is a wizard. Highly recommend you go see him for yourself".
