About me

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Daniel helped me out of one of the darkest points in my life. He is genuine, kind and understanding, and helped me rationalise my problems and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Speaking to him was always the highlight of my week and he’s changed my outlook on life completely. I am a much happier and thankful person today thanks to him’ (N,S)

'Daniel helped me interrogate my actions around alcohol misuse.  I was able to identify and address the consequences of my behaviours, both towards myself and others. I am now able to recognise certain events / situations / circumstances which are more likely to end negatively and take ownership of my decisions. Daniel's approach was supportive and observant. His help has been invaluable.' (C,N)

"Daniel was a great help to me during a very difficult period of my life and gave me useful tools which have helped to limit the damage from bouts of emotional instability. He has a warm demeanour and curated a secure environment where I felt comfortable to share my feelings and experiences. I would recommend Daniel as a therapist to anyone." (G,P)

'Thanks to Daniel my sleepless nights are very infrequent, in fact not at all. I never thought seeing a counsellor would enhance my wellbeing so much. Daniel really made a huge difference to my life - he inspired me' (S,T)

PROFILE

In today's uncertain world, it's unsurprising that so many of us become overwhelmed with anxiety, or weighed down by sadness. It is understandable and all too common that we spiral into negative thinking or look for unhealthy pacifiers to calm or dampen feelings that become difficult to control.

Working within the NHS and with a variety of counselling and treatment agencies, I’ve helped many individuals and couples to overcome these challenges. By providing a safe space to talk, insight into behaviour patterns and strategies for change, counselling has allowed them to put less pressure on themselves and their loved ones and begin to look again at life as something to enjoy.

However, it’s not just my professional resume which allows me to help individuals struggling with anxiety, depression and addictions; or couples struggling to recover from conflict, breakdown or infidelity. The varied and often challenging times in my own personal journey are the foundations upon which my abilities as a therapist are built. Whilst it is essential as therapists that we understand how every person’s journey is different, experience has taught me that to walk alongside those coping with trauma, abuse or addiction, it helps enormously if you’ve overcome challenges yourself.

I should clarify that psychotherapy is not always about dealing with complex problems. A counselling session is also an opportunity to reflect and explore new perspectives and possibilities. A safe space where you will be not just listened to, but truly heard. A launch pad for a future of greater balance and contentment.

Studies have shown that as many as 85% of people felt a marked decrease in symptoms and an increased quality of life after counselling. These numbers go some way to prove what I see every day - most people begin therapy feeling bad and they leave therapy feeling better. It really is that simple.

I work in a warm, supportive, and accepting way, helping clients to unlock their own resources, find new meanings and identify solutions.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
