About me

Anxiety, Depression & Trauma

Welcome, my name is Daniel, if you have found my page it is likely you are looking for help with anxiety, depression or trauma. I offer a place to talk about it, where suffering and turmoil can lead to insight, empowerment, problem solving, self-acceptance and a freedom to choose your own path and constructively manage your life experiences.

Your reason for seeking psychological support is unique and will likely be associated to past or present experiences. In therapy you can speak of painful struggles, explore overwhelming emotions and begin to make sense of your inner world. It is through this process that confusion can be confronted; deep self- knowledge can develop, trauma can be healed and the self can be set free.

My Therapeutic approach

The effectiveness of therapy does not begin with approach but with collaboration and trust.  I recommend that you use the first session as an opportunity to consider our compatibility, my approach and your feelings about us working together. If you feel you would like us to continue working together, my approach includes the following;

  • ·         Psychoanalytic psychotherapy
  • ·         Existential psychotherapy
  • ·         Post-modern psychotherapy
  • ·         Person Centred psychotherapy
  • ·         Phenomenology

A combination of these different approaches provided a very personal healing experience that is grounded in the reflection, exploration and analyses of your personal experience of the world. My aim is to offer a space where it is possible to speak of and begin healing sorrow, despair, suffering and psychological torment

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.
