Meet Darren

Treats Musculoskeletal injuries in adults and children. has a special interest in treating sports injuries.
Darren has recently completed his Masters in Physiotherapy in Brunel University London, with a prior degree in Athletic Therapy and Training in Dublin City University. In the final year of his undergraduate degree, he was able to complete a placement in Massachusetts in the United States, gaining valuable experience working with collegiate teams in American football and ice hockey. Darren’s passion is in sports, and having completed his undergraduate degree, was licensed in Ireland working as an Athletic Therapist across a number of sports including football and Irish sports, Gaelic football and hurling.

Darren offers a range of techniques, including trigger point release and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM) which treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration.

Having worked with athletes and out of a gym, Darren has a wide knowledge of exercises used to optimise function and improve imbalances in the body. Darren believes that for treatment to be optimal, empowering the patient with knowledge and exercises is vital for achieving the best for the patient. Having also completed a course in Mental Health during the pandemic and completing a dissertation on the topic, Darren recognises the holistic approach required for overall well-being.

Darren aims to upskill over the next year in his time away from the practice, with acupuncture and strength and conditioning courses lined up for the new year.

Outside the clinic, Darren is a huge sports fan. Having grown up by the sea in Ireland, he enjoys ocean swimming, mountain hikes and running.

  • I am very pleased to have found Jess, after 5 weeks of pain and suffering Jess has released the spasm in my lower back and glutes and I am able to work tomorrow. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and has no problem getting deep into my tense muscles when others were not able. I have tried every form of physical therapy and a great osteopath is a golden find. Thanks very much

  • I have had back pain intermittently for a few year due to occupational activities. Whenever I feel the pain Sarah is the first point of call. She has "fixed" me more times than I care to remember. the absolute best care and professionalism always and I leave in better shape than I arrived every time.

  • A few sessions and I'm cured!!! Like many others I gave up on the NHS waiting list and came here for immediate treatment. I was crippled with pain and couldn't work. I highly recommend Rebecca to all with back problems!!

  • I have been receiving acupuncture treatments with Ivan while undergoing chemotherapy, for side effects such as sleep disturbances. Ivan has always been very considerate, well informed and intuitive to the underlying causes, and the acupuncture results have been immediate with lasting effects. Ivan has always been very professional in his treatments, making me feel very comfortable and at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend an acupuncture treatment with him, the treatment won’t cause disappointment.

  • For a year in lockdown I had a progressively bad back leading to sciatica. In desperation I made an appointment with Sarah. I'm amazed that after just 3 sessions I'm pain free and the sciatica has disappeared. No more sleepless nights and bending down without pain is such a relief. My only regret is I didn't go sooner. Can't thank you enough Sarah. Life saver!!!!

  • After a recommendation to bring my newborn to an osteopath we found Sarah. From 2 weeks old she treated our son for a few weeks and we have noticed a huge improvement in his head movements and general flexibility! We’ve felt very safe with her covid safe measures and also very welcome. I’ve already recommended her to two friends and won’t hesitate to recommend her again and again!
