Hi, I’m Danielle…
I’m really pleased you found my website, I hope it gives you the information you are looking for but if there is anything else you would like to know, please get in touch (details on the contact me page).
Originally I’m from Cornwall but I now live in Devon with my lovely husband and two children. I’m one of those (annoying) people that can genuinely say I enjoy my job.
Ever since I can remember, I have always had an interest in the body and the amazing way it works. Being able to work with the body and see the way this therapy helps so many people, really is amazing.
Why choose me as your therapist?
Choosing a therapist is an incredibly individual thing. You need to be happy that the person you are going to see will listen to you and provide effective treatment. I strive to do that for all of my clients, working with you in your individual circumstances, to help you progress in your well-being and health.
I have attended many development and specialised courses meaning I have increased understanding in how to work with many common problems as well as specific issues. These include treating babies and children, mothers during pregnancy, those suffering with back pain, neck and jaw problems, spinal difficulties, long term chronic conditions including fibromyalgia, MS and Parkinson’s.
I am qualified to be able to prescribe exercises to help you benefit further from your treatments and to be able to help yourself.
I would be more than happy to have a free no obligation chat with you to help you decided if I am the right therapist for you.
Becoming a Bowen Therapist
My journey to bowen started because I was struggling with back pain and migraines for several years. Having tried a few different types of therapy but to no avail, someone recommend bowen in 2009, so I skeptically gave it a go.
I’m so pleased I did because it really made a massive difference to my life. It reduced my pain levels and stopped my migraines. I still have regular treatments to manage my stress levels and keep my body pain free.
I decided on a career switch after personal circumstances changed, so I went from working in an office to a therapist in July 2013. Honestly, it was the best thing I did.
I hope to meet you soon
