About me

I am Danielle Quirke (BA Hons PG Dip Psychosynthesis) a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor practicing in both Central London and on the south coast in Southsea Hants.

I have over 22 years experience in a variety of settings and I believe that people have a great capacity to provide answers for themselves.

Sometimes we feel lonely and isolated and find it difficult to talk about our feelings and fears.
Counselling provides a safe and confidential space where you can explore your difficulties and gain confidence to make your own choices in life.

My approach to counselling will help you get beyond familiar patterns, see things differently and reconnect you to aspects of yourself.

I offer both long term term counselling if you wish to explore deeper aspects of yourself or short term if you wish to focus on a particular issue.

Womens Self Development Group starts Sat 13th April  in Portsmouth 11.00-12.30

The women’s group is an exciting opportunity to be part of an ongoing process of creating a safe place to talk about difficult areas of our lives and to offer support and challenge in order to help each other to move forward.

It will also provide a space to fulfill our own self development and personal growth. Pleace contact me for further details

Training, qualifications & experience

It was in the early 90's that I first entered counselling as a volunteer with a bereavement service and then as  a mediator for neighbourhood complaints within a housing association.

Wanting to deepen my work with individuals I qualified as a psychotheraputic counsellor and went on to complete several postgraduate trainings.

I continue with ongoing professional development to keep abreast of current thinking, research and practise.

Our first session is a "look and see" session where we explore what it is that you are seeking. To meet one another and see if your needs and my skills match.

It may be that other or additional support may be needed or that the time is not right for you.

Sessions are normally weekly, at a regular time for 50 minutes.
