David Adler

Job Title:
  Practice Director

David Adler is a director of Portland Therapy Centre. He graduated from Bristol School of Physiotherapy in 1991, and has been a full-time practitioner for the past 20 years. He has worked with clients to international standard in a number of sports, having a special interest in sports injuries.

David uses a holistic approach to treatment, concentrating not only on the problem area, but taking into account any related factors during the initial consultation and subsequent treatment. These may include assessment of posture, work-related stresses and activities of daily living. At the end of the first treatment a treatment plan is discussed, and home exercises given, if appropriate.

Kerri Formoso


Kerri is a fully qualified solution focused Hypnotherapist and has undertaken further training in neuro-science, childbirth and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).   She takes a particular interest in the latest evidence based research being carried out in the areas of brain plasticity, the role of the mind and emotions on health and life, quantum physics and cell biology which all contribute towards her unique approach to treatment.

Kerri offers a free Initial Consultation.  During the consultation Kerri will collect information about the results you would like to achieve through the sessions and explain in more detail how the sessions can help you achieve these results.  Kerri puts together a bespoke treatment package for each of her clients which include resources to be used in between each session, helping you achieve your goals in a timely manner with on-going progress checks at each session so you can be fully aware of the progress you are making.

Kerri treats a wide range of conditions including, but certainly not limited to, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and weight loss.  When we consider that the mind controls everything about us, we can begin to understand the wide range of conditions Hypnotherapy can be used to treat.

Kerri has a lot of experience in working with teenagers and young adults although when asked, is reluctant to say she specialises in any one client group or treatment preferring instead to have a special interest in each and every one of her clients and their treatments.  She offers a warm and friendly approach, ensuring that each session has the ‘feel good’ factor built in to it.

Sasha Langman


Qualified from the McTimoney Chiropractic College, Oxon MCT (1994), and has been in full practice since. Other techniques practiced include Bioenergetic Synchronisation Technique BEST (2004) and Koren Specific Technique KST (2007). Is also a Reiki Master (Usui, Karuna Reiki® 

and Colour Reiki). Teaching qualification City & Guilds Stage One (1997).

A detailed case history is taken on the first visit. All of the above techniques practised are low force. MCT uses a combination of accuracy, dexterity and speed to correct imbalances in the skeletal structure and restore health and wellbeing. The whole body is treated when using MCT, not just the areas where there are presenting symptoms. Techniques are usually mixed during treatment to suit the individual case. MCT skeletal adjusting is always used initially unless a patient requests otherwise. Symptom free MCT technique maintenance treatment is available. It is highly cost effective, optional, and popular with existing patients after their initial course of treatment. Specific treatments using only Reiki are available at a patient’s request.

Two appointments are essential for new patients. They are usually a week apart but this can sometimes vary. Further treatment is given according to this initial response. The timing of any further treatments can vary. The last internal practice audit indicated that nearly 90% of new patients find their symptoms cleared within four visits, but patients are occasionally referred within this time, sometimes to their GP for further tests or to a different therapy mode. This depends on the case history and initial response. Referrals are infrequent but essential.

Muscle and joint symptoms to clear the nervous system and improve mobility using MCT; disc adjusting using KST; headaches, allergies and dyslexia treatment with KST; hormonal balancing using BEST; emotional balancing using KST and BEST. Please phone to discuss your individual needs first if you wish.
