I am Daniel Morrison and I want to support you in whatever you’re going through. I believe that everyone has the capacity to change, or to embrace the changes that are happening in their life. Counselling is a space which is just for you, to speak about whatever is present in your life right now and be heard. We can explore your patterns, your stories, what’s working for you and where you’d like things to be different. It’s confidential and I’ll never judge or criticise you. It’s an opportunity to have somebody hear you and accept you just as you are, a place to explore your options without being told what to do.
I am a full time counsellor, a writer and parent to my teenagers. My background is in working therapeutically in residential settings with young people who have emotional and behavioural disorders, neurodiversity or a background of trauma and abuse. I now work with adults with a variety of issues and volunteer as a counsellor at the LGBT Foundation, as well as seeing clients in private practice.
Seeking support can be a big decision, and the key to effective therapy is finding a therapist you feel comfortable with. The relationship between the client and the therapist is more important than any other factor in determining how useful therapy is. I offer a free 30 minute meeting or call before sessions begin, so we can get to know each other and decide if we want to work together without any cost or commitment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am experienced in working with depression, anxiety, parenting, ASD and other neurodiversity, bereavement, relationships, gender diversity, the LGBTQ+ community, mental health and addiction. I also have experience working with clients involved with non-traditional relationships such as BDSM and ethical non-monogamy.
I’m qualified primarily in person centred counselling although I draw on other therapeutic approaches as needed. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and work to their Ethical Framework.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
LGBT, LGBTQ, Queer, sexuality, relationship diversity, ethical non monogamy, polyamory, BDSM, trans, transgender, nonbinary,
I offer one to one counselling sessions online or by telephone. I am not currently offering face to face sessions. My standard fee is £40. Those who are on a higher income can choose to pay £60 which makes reduced cost sessions available to those on a lower income. I believe therapy should be accessible for everyone, so if cost is a barrier for you then please get in touch. Those who are able to pay the higher rate are contributing to a fund for those not able to afford therapy. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly depending on availability and need.
