Danielle practices Psychotherapy in Bath and Bruton, and Osteopathy in Bruton, the therapies are separate and she either works with clients as a Psychotherapist or treats patients as an Osteopath.
Danielle practices from a safe and confidential space in Openings, a therapy centre in the heart of Bath, and from her home in Bruton.
Danielle has an MA in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice, from the Karuna Institute. She is a member of the UK based accrediting body for Psychotherapeutic Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKCP), and the Association of Core Process Psychotherapists (ACPP). She believes that experiencing a sense of wellbeing is through patient non-judgmental awareness and loving acceptance, and she is passionate about working with this transformative approach.
Danielle feels that the journey towards health and healing is of primary importance for herself and her clients. She is deeply committed to ongoing learning in her practice and in the path towards embodiment and well being.
Danielle works from a calm and welcoming therapy room, within her home in Bruton.
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 Danielle 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 Danielle's continued journey towards a more holistic Osteopathic approach she discovered Biodynamic Osteopathy in 2012, a particular form of Osteopathy in the cranial field which was developed by Dr James Jealous. She is currently in the process of learning the Biodynamic pathway taught by Christian Sullivan, and most recently explored phase seven in 2019.
After several years in Osteopathic practice Danielle noticed that many of her patients who were suffering with physical pain, also presented with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. She 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.
Danielle believes that we all have the capacity to experience our inherent health and to feel a sense of connection to our well being, and her psychotherapeutic training enhances her Osteopathic care of her patients.
