Danelle Hollenbeck, Trauma and Couples Specialist
I provide EMDR counselling, trauma counselling, and couples counselling via the Gottman Method. I have over 15 years working in the mental health and addiction field in the UK and USA. I have run agencies and over saw clinicians in wide-ranging capacities. My expertise is EMDR and working with couples. My experience in this is quite wide-ranging as I have counselled your every day person to a few famous people seeking help and re-building the love in their relationships.
I use EMDR along with CBT and DBT to help process trauma faster than regular talk therapy as EMDR uses eye movement to process the traumatic events affecting the person seeking treatment. It is a proven treatment for war veterans with PTSD and used in place of medication.
In working with couples, I use the Gottman method to help learn your love language, process the break down or issues in the relationship and help you work through any differences or infidelties you may have. I help guide relationships to become stronger by focusing on how each couple came together to form a partnership in the first place and building on this to recognise each other's strengths, love, and friendship as a couple.
I also work with teens and adults with anxiety, depression, ADHD, phobias, odd, IED, anger management, and bi polar disorder. I also work with teens and adults with Asperger's who are finding it difficult to build a social network or adjust to their lives due to new events or issues taking place.
I provide family therapy using the family systems method.
I do work with the addiction population but only in conjunction with those who are on assisted treatment through various NHS trusts and are testing negative.
As a life coach, I empower individuals to reach their goals whilst finding their purpose in life. We set standards, use solution focused techniques and work on helping each person strive for what they want in life! It IS achievable--just believe and you will receive!

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I am an HCPC registered psychologist. My sessions are professional, therapeutic, goal oriented, and tailored to what your needs are. In doing so, you will get great therapy that will benefit you from a highly trained professional. I charge £70.00 for adults per therapeutic session, yet if you are on a low income, unemployed, or facing financial hardship we can discuss another rate prior to starting therapy.
My EMDR rates are £120 per session due to what is involved with EMDR and preparing you to process your trauma and saying hello to releasing your anxiety, anger, and fears!
Couples sessions are £120.00
I charge £40 per therapeutic session for counselling students.
I do not have wheelchair access currently. However, we can arrange to meet in another venue that accommodates your needs.
I charge £55.00 per phone, Face time, or Skype session which is 45 minutes.
Cash payment is preferred, otherwise bank transfer prior to the session or sumpup at the time of the session. For phone sessions or through Zoom, payment must be completed prior to the session.
Please be advised I will need to do a full intake for therapy to gather your history and this will need to be conducted prior to the first session. I can send you the intake forms with consent forms via email which you must bring with you and will go over this.If you want to only do phone sessions I will still need an assessment completed prior to and this will need to be emailed to me prior to session.
