About me

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 EMDR therapist, counsellor, a writer and parent to my teenagers. I'm a queer nonbinary trans man and bring lived experience to my practice. 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 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.

I also run Coming Home, a regular online course based on Deb Dana's work on the autonomic nervous system. Please see my website for more details and start dates. 

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 offer talking therapy sessions online which are 50 minutes long, and EMDR sessions online or in person in Hebden Bridge which are 90 minutes long.

EMDR is a well researched form of therapy focussed on reprocessing trauma. It can reduce or eliminate symptoms like flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and overwhelming emotional reactions to triggers. Trauma is any event which the brain isn't able to process at the time. Because the event isn't processed and stored away like other memories, it can be awakened by unrelated things and the body reacts as if the trauma was happening now. Using eye movements EMDR supports the brain to sort and store traumatic memories as events which happened in the past. The body learns to feel safe in the present moment without emotional flooding or distressing reactivity.

I’m qualified primarily in person centred counselling and EMDR and 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.

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.

Additional information

I offer EMDR sessions, online or in person in Hebden Bridge. These sessions are 90 minutes long and the standard fee is £110.

I offer one to one counselling sessions online or by telephone. These sessions are 50 minutes long and the standard fee is £60.

Those who are on a higher income can choose to pay more 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, and I match anything paid into this fund myself. Sessions can be twice weekly, weekly or fortnightly depending on availability and need.
