About Us

About The Wellness & Beauty Clinic

The Wellness and Beauty clinic in West Hampstead is the culmination of over twenty years of observing and understanding the pros and cons of modern private clinics and the National Health Service. This clinic aims not to look at your aliments and health issues in isolation, but you as individual and as a whole, with a core focus on both internal and external health and well-being.

Our Staff

Stephen Barabas | Medical Director

Dr. Stephen Barabas

I have been in the industry over 20 years now but from a very young age, I have had an interest in combination medicine.

All my family are either doctors, plastic surgeons, or dentists so I come from a very medical background. My Grandfather was head of the Royal College of Surgeons and I really am a product of the NHS and I’m proud of that.

Over the last 10 years I have been involved in K-Laser and from about 2016 I began to get involved in the human side and manual therapy.

It was always a dream to set up a clinic where it was working alongside good clinicians but with the interest of the individual at heart.

It’s about asking the question of ‘what are your problems related to and how can we help you using combo medicine?’

For example, if a patient is suffering from back problems, it is about looking at therapy lasers but with that, also massage and diet.

We also want to be able to offer good consultancy for aesthetics and a consultant that can say no to a patient and tell them they are beautiful as they are – they might need some manual therapy for this too which we can offer.

Our aim is to look at the individual with combination and holistic therapies and from there, doing our best for them.

In our clinic, downstairs we will offer dermatology and psychology from the best of the best. We also have an amazing Ukrainian doctor who fled the country and has a degree and is an expert in the beauty industry.

Upstairs, we have three manual therapists and two sports therapists – one of which specialises in the aged population and in keeping them active.

Then, working between the floors we have an ex NHS dietician who is an expert in dealing with diabetes and also things like ingrown toenails etc.

We really do have the best and most experienced staff all under one roof.
