Kelly Mckay

Looking for an Osteopath in Islington with an integrated BodyMind approach? Kelly has been a registered Osteopathic practitioner for over 22 years. As a certified Life Coach, she is able to uncover psycho-emotional factors which may impact the symptom picture through the mind-body connection.

Kelly has guided many people to better understand the connection (and inseparable relationship) between the physical body, mental perspective and emotional narrative within a symptom picture. 

Kelly is committed to helping others move beyond dysfunction, pain, and richer experiences of wellbeing.

“I absolutely love discerning what’s hiding behind symptoms or surface issues. Guiding people through a process of personal growth and insight is fantastically rewarding. I see growing in awareness as one of the most important aspects of living. It leads to more liberated and fulfilled experiences — opening us up to the best of ourselves, and of life. Perhaps I can be a help to you?”   ~ Kelly Mckay

Bodywork offers combinations of Osteopathic techniques – joint mobilisations, spinal adjustments, soft tissue work and massage.

Kelly seamlessly combines the use of Structural (traditional) Osteopathy with a (subtle, yet far reaching) Cranial Osteopathic approach to address stress and strain patterns held deep within the body’s tissues. 

Treatments are applied through a lens of holistic ‘BodyMind’ wellbeing. Both the physical and emotional levels of your experience will be considered in optimising your healing experience.

Consultations and ‘hands-on’ osteopathic treatments for children of all ages and adults are available at two prime locations on Upper Street Islington, London.

Life Coaching

Problems or difficulties in one area of life can instigate self limiting perspectives and adverse affects in others – this includes impacting our physical wellbeing!

Uncovering and positively reframing our core beliefs, perspective and values can be essential to establishing new progressive ways to move forward.

Could you benefit from exploring ‘BodyTalk’, the emotions behind your physical symptoms? Perhaps your feeling stuck, and unsure of the direction your heading in? Would you like to explore a fresh approach to handling a specific situation that is unfolding in your life?

Kelly offers a coaching style that supports the deep healing and wellbeing of both body and mind.

Clients Say…

“Kelly is a brilliant, incisive and compassionate healer. As well as being a fantastic practitioner she has an amazing ability to see the connection between thoughts, emotions and physical well-being. Her knowledge is great and her diagnosis is always on the money. I see her for back problems and the like, but always leave with my mind and spirit healed as well as my body. I cannot praise or recommend her highly enough.”

Mike. R (Writer/Comedian)​

“Kelly’s approach looks at both mind and body simultaneously. Having suffered from terrible daily migraines for a year I can only thank Kelly for the help she has provided me. She was the only person I seeked for help who looked at the initial cause of my problem. Through a mindful approach, life coaching, physical manipulation and a cranial approach I am finally starting to get my life back. Kelly is the most wonderful listener with thorough advice. I highly recommend anyone give her a try”.

Hazel. V (Artist)

“Kelly is a highly skilled practitioner and she helped me hugely both physically and emotionally during a very difficult time. Kelly is intelligent and perceptive and her kind and affable demeanour immediately put me at ease. I still use the meditation techniques she taught me and absolutely love them!”
