(Clinical PgDip. UKCP Registered Psychotherapist)

About me

Hi Folks,

My name is Daniel and my pronouns are he/him, living and working in Portsmouth.

I am a UKCP accredited and qualified Person Centred Psychotherapist with over 800 client hours working with a variety of clients with a variety of emotional and psychological difficulties.

There could be many reasons why you might be looking for psychotherapy or counselling.

Therapy can alleviate distress, struggle or unease in our lives, and can help us live with a greater sense of connection to the things we hold as important.

Reasons to seek out therapy are, much like ourselves, varied, nuanced and complex. A deeply empathic, attentive presence, warmth and trust for how you process things and what you decide to bring to our sessions, are at the heart of my practice as a therapist.

I am currently offering online and telephone therapy and counselling, but soon looking to restart in person therapy again.

Please feel free to get in touch if you wanted to discuss what working together might look or feel like.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation and I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.

I have trained for 6yrs, on the Masters course for Contemporary Person Centred Psychotherapy and Applications, at The Metanoia Institute in London.
