About me

My name is Danielle and I am a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC).

I offer individual and couple's therapy both face to face in my office at Liverpool Street and online via zoom. I believe private therapy allows the person to find the therapist best suited to their needs in a way that fits into their life. I appreciate that finding a therapist can be daunting and this is why I offer an initial free telephone consultation during which we can discuss what you are looking for and the kind of therapy that would work for you. You are also welcome to contact me by email.

In terms of my own therapeutic approach, I draw on a range of psychological interventions grounded in acceptance and compassion to help you to get a better understanding of yourself and support you towards greater well-being. Whatever you are looking for support with, I will try to understand your experiences from your perspective and work with you to think about what you want to change and how you can move towards this. Regardless of the modality, I believe the most important factor is the therapeutic relationship, creating a safe, non-judgemental space between us.

I offer clinical supervision, with discounted rates for trainees. Please get in touch for more details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a doctorate in Counselling Psychology and I have fifteen years experience of working in mental health and counselling. I have worked in the NHS and charity sector and and now my work is split between the NHS, where I hold a post as a senior psychologist, and in private practice.

I have experience of working with people struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction, work related issues including work stress and work place bullying, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder (previously known as manic depression), personality disorders, trauma, sexuality, identity, antenatal and postnatal difficulties. I have worked with individuals at different stages of life and believe that this provides an important context for a person's experiences.

I have experience of using different modalities including humanistic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), eye movement desensitisation and reprogramming (EMDR) and compassion focused therapy (CFT). This range of experience allows me to ensure that the interventions I use are the best suited to meet the individual's needs.

If you are thinking of starting psychological therapy, please contact me using the above details so that we can discuss how this can work for you.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As a private therapist, it is necessary to process information relevant to the following reasons and purposes about my clients and professional advisers. This information may include: personal details; family, lifestyle and social circumstances; financial details and employment and education details. It may also be necessary to hold sensitive classes of information that may include: physical or mental health details; racial or ethnic origin; religious or other beliefs of a similar nature and offences and alleged offences.

This information sometimes needs to be shared the individual themselves and also with other organisations. Where this is necessary, it is required that this complies with all aspects of the Data Protection Act (DPA). What follows is a description of the types of organisations with which some of the personal information processed may be shared with for one or more reasons: healthcare professionals; social and welfare organisations; central government; business associates; financial organisations; family, associates and representatives of the person whose personal data we are processing; educators and examining bodies.

I process personal information to enable me to provide psychological therapy and to maintain accounts and records. Records of therapeutic work are stored safely online in keeping with the guidelines required by the ICO. Please be mindful of what information you share online, including online submissions on this website and email communications.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
