Danielle Godfrey BA (Hons), Registered MBACP, Integrative Relational Counsellor
I am a professionally qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am experienced in supporting adult clients with a range of difficulties including: anxiety, depression, domestic abuse, bereavement, separation and divorce, low self-esteem, anger, stress, loneliness, childhood issues, family and relationship issues.
The decision to consider seeing a counsellor can often feel daunting, whether it is your first experience of counselling or not. You may be experiencing difficult thoughts and feelings that you find hard to share with others. Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk openly about your struggles without being judged. Expressing feelings for the first time can often bring clarity to a situation and be the first step towards understanding why you feel the way you do.
My aim is to create an open and trusting partnership, in which you feel comfortable and supported. By helping you to explore your thoughts and emotions, our work together can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself. This in turn can lead to positive change and more fulfilment from your life.
My approach is integrative, which means I am abIe to draw on a number of different theoretical models in order to tailor my work with you.
