About Dani


Dani practices Osteopathy and Psychotherapy and works in a safe and confidential space from a calm and welcoming therapy room, within her home in Bruton. Although Dani treats Osteopathic patients and works with psychotherapy clients, the therapies are separate and she either sees people as clients or patients.

Osteopathy

Her initial training was in Osteopathy where she graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science honours degree. Following her graduation Dani volunteered at the Osteopathic Centre for Children, and participated in post graduate Cranial Osteopathy trainings. She also attended several post graduate courses and workshops on pregnancy, post partum and pelvic issues. In Dani's continued journey towards a more holistic Osteopathic approach she discovered Biodynamic Osteopathy in 2012, completing Phase IV in 2017.

After several years in Osteopathic practice Dani noticed that many of her patients who suffered from chronic pain, and conditions such as fibromyalgia, also presented with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Dani became interested in the connections between the mind, body and emotions, and pursued this by completing modules in Psychology, Biological Psychology and the Science of the Mind, attaining a Diploma of Higher Education from The Open University.

Psychotherapy

As Dani realised the symbiotic relationship between embodiment and the capacity to experience well being she pursued a deeper understanding of the emotional issues that co-exised with unresolved and unprocessed trauma held in the body. Dani completed a Buddhist based Psychotherapy course at the Karuna Institute, graduating in 2016 with an MA in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice. Her psychotherapeutic understanding enhances her Osteopathic work with her patients, and she is passionate about working with this transformative approach with her Psychotherapy clients.

Dani continues to explore the physical, emotional and mental aspects of pain and suffering and feels that the journey towards health and healing is of primary importance for herself, her patients and her clients. She is deeply committed to ongoing learning in her practice and in the path towards embodiment and well being.
