My name is Damon and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor based in the Northwich area and have a laid back, warm approach to therapy. Because I understand how daunting it can be to visit therapy for the first time, I am approachable, understanding and someone who works in a professional, caring but informal way. I offer confidential, supportive counselling on a one to one basis or for couples in a safe, quiet environment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained a Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the MMU (Manchester Metropolitan University). I am registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), having passed a Certificate of Proficiency Assessment. I have experience of counselling at various organisations, including, Reaseheath College, Body Positive, Outrite and Weaver Vale Housing Trust.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
