About me

Taking those first steps to getting help can sometimes feel intimidating. From my practice based in Bournemouth, I offer a therapeutic relationship based on empathy, trust and respect in a safe and confidential environment. My approach means that you are kept at the centre of our work and together, we can help you find your right way forward.

​I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties and by using a variety of approaches, I can offer a service that suits you. I believe we all have potential for positive change, even in times of difficulty, we just need the right conditions and that is what I aim to provide. I offer one to one, short term and long term talking therapy and where appropriate, CBT techniques can be incorporated. So what can you expect? Making Contact: If calling, please leave a brief message with your name and number. I aim to return your email or call within 1 working day, so that we may arrange a first phone call. Initial Phone Call: Our initial 30 minute phone consultation is free and can be used to explore your expectations of the counselling relationship and for us to consider how we might work together towards achieving your goals. Ongoing Sessions: Sessions are generally at the same time and place each week. Each session is 50 minutes long. At regular intervals, a review takes place, giving us an opportunity to discuss your goals and progress. During these sessions, we can work together to explore your thoughts and behaviours in a non-judgemental space. If you would like to discuss how we might be able to work together to attain your therapy goals please contact me on 07307 189347 or email at danielletomlinsontherapy@gmail.com.

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.
