About me

Hi, my name is Dana and I am a qualified person centred counsellor / Play therapist/ and supervisor in the North West Covering areas such as St Helens, Wigan, Manchester & Liverpool, Newton Le Willows. I am also a member of BACP & PTUK. I have specialised in counselling adults with alcohol, aggressive and drug issues. Survivors of abuse and Domestic Violence. I have worked with Post Natal Depression groups, and counselling clients with terminal illness along with bereavement. Amongst other issues. As well as adults I work with children aged 4-18 using play therapy in primary schools / High schools and private settings. I have done grief camps and worked for the Youth Offending Team.

I can offer you a warm and friendly environment that isn't judgemental to enable you to have the breathing space you are seeking to look at your dilemmas as they may arise, sometimes counselling will bring up something you weren't even thinking was the issue. I will endeavour to be by your side why we attempt to walk the unknown path together.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Play therapy is using the medium of art, sand and clay amongst other creative interventions to enable expression for you to get a handle on your emotions. Play came before words with the child, so it is the childs natural language.
