Dannie Rosenhammer (MA & Dip Counselling, MBACP)
Having practiced as a counsellor and psychotherapist in the Greater Manchester area for the last six years, I relocated to Glossop in early 2015. In the past I have worked for an NHS counselling service, four different charities and in private practice.
Currently I deliver counselling and other support to young people in my employment with 42nd Street and have a limited number of places in my Glossop-based private practice for people of all ages.
To briefly summarise my way of working, I would say it's about:
- providing a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for clients to deal with personal issues and challenges,
- building a comfortable and trusting relationship, and
- offering various ways of working - within my training - because different people, and problems, call for different approaches.
Informal enquiries by phone or email are welcome. I feel it's really important you find the right counsellor for you, so I offer a free initial consultation to help you decide.
I receive regular supervision and have insurance for my work, as expected in the profession. Information about fees can be found at the bottom of this page, and my current availability in the left-hand column.
Please have a look at my website www.growing-well.co.uk for more detailed information about the way I work, my qualifications, and testimonials from former clients.
