About me

Are you struggling with intrusive thoughts, overthinking, worrying, feeling sad, hopeless, feeling like you are disconnected and or avoiding friends and families?

I can help you!

Are you feeling isolated, a sense of not belonging, confusion, avoiding any kind of social interaction or desperately needing reconnect again?

I can help you!

I'm Dafiny and I work with pre-teens, adolescents, young adults and adults.

Through counselling, clients can recover motivation, perspective, hope, strengthen problem solve skills, build resilience and learn how tolerate anxiety; they also can overcome unwanted memories and sadness not only but also experience joy again.

My focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths; I provide a safe non-judgemental space, where clients are made to feel valued, understood, listened to and free to express and explore any concern.

As an integrative counsellor, part of the therapeutic relationship I have with my clients means we can use a range of techniques such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs pictures, solution focus exercises, etc.

As long as you, the client, feels comfortable with this as the base of my work is client -centred, meaning; I respect that my clients know what is best for them.

I offer an initial free telephone or video call conversation,  get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
