Hey my name is Dan and I offer person centred counselling services where our sessions will focus on you and your needs. I am based in Sleaford although travel to Grantham, Lincoln and surrounding areas. Due to the current covid situation I offer sessions online, over phone and face to face so, if you need someone to talk to this is still possible if you’re not comfortable with face to face.
Sometimes life can be difficult and you may not know what to do. You may be feeling sad and you have no one to talk to or you are not comfortable talking to friends and family. You may prefer to come and talk to someone who can offer you an empathetic and non-judgmental environment for you to discuss your problems and experiences in life.
My experience lies in private practice where I have worked with clients with many struggles and concerns. I also have experience working with survivors of sexual abuse at Trust House in Grantham, I was part of the Amy Winehouse Foundation working in schools with young people holding workshops on the resilience program. I have worked with people at Lincoln Trauma centre. Having worked with all different types of clients that include PTSD, CPTSD, addiction, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, stress, relationships and work issues plus many more traumatic life experiences.
I understand it can be difficult to have a healthy and satisfying life. My aim is to help guide you through your problems in the hope you can develop ways to feel more fulfilled, accepting of trauma and lastly, content in your life.
I understand it can feel daunting in taking this first step as it is sometimes difficult to reach out but, I hope you can as I will do my very best to make you feel safe and comfortable as we go through your journey together.

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.

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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
£35.00 per session
Free initial telephone session
Concessions offered for
My fees are £35 for a 50 minute session, initial assessment can be done over the phone for free these will take roughly 15 minutes, within this time you will be able to discuss your problem and I will talk you through the counselling process. Hopefully this will put you at ease of what will happen. Once this is done you can decide if you want to continue with the counselling sessions with me and we can then book in a session. I understand there is a lot of choice out there to pick from, I guess the most important thing is you find a counsellor that you will feel comfortable working with, so we can see if we are the right fit when we have the assessment.
I offer affordable sessions in the afternoon and evening 7 days a week and one morning per week we can discuss days available in the initial assessment. Please text and I will ring you back.
I offer sessions face to face, over the phone and online. Online sessions can be from anywhere.
I am member of the BACP and I work by the ethical framework that they have produced. I will continue with learning several CPD courses covering all areas of counselling.
I undertake supervision once a month in-line with the ethical framework.
