Danielle Corbett (MBACP, Adv. Dip)
I am a qualified and professionally trained psychotherapist in North London. I have a background in NHS Mental Health Services, having worked as a therapist based in GP practices across South London in the IAPT programme, as well as working with a variety of people in private practice.
During my time in the NHS, I worked with a very wide and diverse range of people of all ages, from all backgrounds and walks of life, with a huge range of difficulties and issues.
On my website (www.talkingcuretherapy.com), you can read more about me, my background and the way I work, as well as more information about what therapy is, and how the process works in the FAQ and articles section (www.talkingcuretherapy.com/faqs).
Therapy is more than simply sitting and talking about your problems once a week - what may appear like ‘just talking’ is much more active and reflective. Psychotherapists are specialist mental health professionals who are trained to listen to a person’s problems in order to try and get to the origin of them. They help find ways of understanding, reflecting and reframing what has happened to help cope and feel better.
I try to create an environment that is warm and open. Feeling relaxed and able to talk without fear of criticism or judgement is essential in therapy. I understand that talking to a therapist can feel strange, intimidating or even frightening to some. I draw on a selection of therapy models that best suit the needs of each person I work with as an individual. This allows for different ways of working at different times, depending on what is happening in someone’s life, or how they may be feeling at that particular time.
I offer both in-person and online sessions. I am based in North London, in the N4 postcode for face-to-face sessions. I offer introductory sessions to better understand what help and support you may need, and for you to get a better understanding of how I work, with no obligation to continue.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Fees vary depending on the day, time and location, starting at £65 per hour for in-person sessions. An initial, introductory session is £25 (with no obligation to continue).
An initial session is for you to tell me a bit about yourself, for you to ask any questions you might have, and for us to see if you would want to work together. If you would like more information about what to expect, there is an FAQ at: www.talkingcuretherapy.com/faqs
