My name is Danielle and I am a person centered trauma informed therapist. This means that I use an array of different methods to accommodate your unique needs. During therapy my aim is to provide you with a safe space where we can explore whatever you feel you need to bring to the session. I will not judge you during the session and I do not provide psychological assessments. I have worked with people from many different walks of life who have experienced a range of mental distress. I specialise in working with bereavement and trauma.
What will our first session be like?
During our first appointment I will explain aspects of confidentiality and I may ask you questions about what you wish to achieve through attending therapy. At the end of the session we will make a decision about how we would like to proceed. Normally, people choose to be seen once a week. However, I am flexible and respect that you may only want bi weekly or even monthly support.
How to get in touch with me:
I offer a free one-hour initial consultation to provide you with the opportunity to decide if you would be comfortable working with me. To get started on your counselling journey with me simply call, text or email and I will reply to your enquiry within 24 hours. You can also visit my website:

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.
