About me

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 Lincoln and surrounding areas. 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.

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.

Additional information

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.
